History and featuresEdit
In early 2380, B'Elanna Torres upgraded the Charger's top speed from warp 7.2 to warp 8.2. This was done by upgrading the warp core. The Charger was upgraded by B'Elanna to carry quantum torpedoes. The only Flyer-class shuttlecraft with these capabilities is the Charger. Among the many weapon features included type 4 phasers, photon torpedoes and quantum torpedoes.
Like the Delta Flyer and Delta Flyer II, it featured unimatrix shielding, retractable warp nacelles, an ultra-aerodynamic tetraburnium alloy hull and parametallic hull plating. Like the Delta Flyer II, the Charger featured impulse thrusters, which gave the Charger greater sublight speed.
Unlike any other Federation shuttlecraft before it, the Charger was a blend of Starfleet and Borg technology, and was designed to perform in situations that were deemed too hazardous for standard shuttlecraft.
