The Predator class is one of the many improvisations made by UFAS engineers. A standard Intrepid class saucer section was used with 2 small nacelles attached to the underside by 2 "wings". Since the Warp Propulsion systems had to be moved into the Saucer, there wasn't much room left for torpedos or high-power Phasers. As a result, the standard armament for the Predator is 8 Type VIII Phaser Emitters. With it's excellent maneuverability, the Predator was assigned the task of handling enemy fighters.
