Notes : The Type 7 was introduced to a larger and heavier counterpart to the Type 6. In common with the 6, the Type 7 has a Duranium Tritanium hull which has greatly increased the strength and durability of the structure. The computer and sensor suite is also of a more advanced generation than those of the preceeding Types. The Type six continues in production, although the advent of the new field=replicatable shuttle models capable of vastly higher warp speeds is likely to cut the projected production of a further 700+ units drastically.
