Designed strictly as escort vessels and used only for convoy or fleet support, R-4s are very rarely seen alone, according to Project Grey Ghost information. Normally assigned in groups of five to seven, they are known to be sufficient in firepower to deter most enemies.

Though several Type 1 vessels remained on active duty into 2300, most had been refitted to the Type 5 by that time, with improved weapons, more powerful engine, and more efficient shields.

Of the approximately 250 R-4s built, about 200 remain in active service and about 20 are in reserve fleets. About Stardate 2/1307, an R-4 escorting a group of three freighters was taken by a mutinous crew and disappeared with the freighters into the Triangle, where it operates currently. Intelligence reports state that the Romulan government has put a bounty on the crew members’ capture and/or elimination.

The class is named for the mularr, a large, flying reptile native to Corill. The creature’s protective nature provides the vessel its name.
