Chiokis Starship Construction Corporation of Vulcan achieved a breakthrough in 2267 with a set of small-scale warp coils capable of sustaing a warp factor greater than 3. Seeking to exploit this technology, they incorporated these coils with impulse power engines into a pair of nacelles and used these as a warp carrier for an enlarged version of their Standard Shuttle.

The hope was that this large shuttle could act as a small starship; handling such duties as diplomatic missions, personell transfers and emergency deliveries. Unfortunately, diplomats preferred to take a larger vessel, what they called "showing the flag" (what the more cynical called "carrying a big stick"). The shuttle also lacked the speed for emergency relief missions. A starship would often be called to meet the shuttle enroute and transfer the needed supplies.
