The Vul­can High Com­mand has been oper­at­ing the same basic designs of star­ship for over two hun­dred years, albeit with peri­od­ic tech­no­lo­gic­al refits. “It is not logic­al to replace a sys­tem which does its assigned task effi­ciently enough”, as T’vaal, Head of the High Com­mand, remarked in 2264. When they were first seen in the 22nd cen­tury, they dwarfed any­thing else in use among the future Fed­er­a­tion founders, although even these were out-classed by the immense D’kyrs. Suur­oks were known for their high speeds, cap­able of cruis­ing at warp 7, when Humans were still try­ing to achieve warp 5, and their fire­power, but neither of these are impress­ive by 23rd cen­tury stand­ards. As the High Com­mand realigned to focus on sci­ence and explor­a­tion over the last cen­tury, the Suur­oks have increas­ingly been recon­figured for research, and are now com­monly found on exten­ded sur­vey mis­sions around the edges of Fed­er­a­tion space.
