The Angurerua class was originally designed during the waning days of the Four Years War. As hostilities continued, planners knew a fast response medical vessel would be needed and the Anguereria was was soon approved for construction. The sudden end of the war halted initial construction. However, the sudden outbreak of the Organian conflict put the need for a new and inexpensive medical vessel firmly in the forefront of Star Fleet planning. Despite the end of that conflict, Fleet Procurement felt that a medical vessel that could compliment other primarily medical vessels should be adopted. Construction timetables were changed and significant updates and improvements were factored into the final design. By 2268, the Angureria was in service and was being assigned to boarder areas were hospital facilities were few and far between.

The Angureria’s basic power-plant was little changed for other light vessels, but incorporated the second generation FWB warp drive. This allowed the vessel to cruiser at up to Warp 8 for long periods of time and exceed Warp 9 when needed. The nacelles were specially modified to cycle without major damage to the primary warp coils. While this approach required more raw plasma than standard warp drives, the vessels nature was such that the requirements were easily adopted.

Although not a combat ship, the Angurerua was equipped with two medium range phasers and efficient shields to allow it to operate alongside forward deployed units. A total of 250 long-term care beds are provided with the ability to treat over 600 wounded when necessary.

The Angureria has changes very little over the years, with most hulls having served well beyond their original design limits. All 97 hulls are currently listed as Reserve Fleet vessels. The Angureria was originally constructed at the Deneb V, Sol IV, Rigel IV, Beta VI and Izar facility.
