The Solomon Juneau is an Andorian design that was build to concentrate forward firepower on an opposing vessel then launch a large group of combat shuttles or fighters to overpower enemy vessels. Each shuttle aboard had it’s own landing bay and recovery system, allowing the fighter and shuttle units to continue operating during combat operations.

Despite it’s military design, the Juneau was also a capable support craft. It’s independent launch and recovery systems allowed extensive modifications to multiple shuttles even during exploration operations. Like most shuttle carriers, the Juneau’s primary peace-time operation was to help map and explore large sections of space where shuttles could conduct highly detailed surveys along with other exploration units.

But the Solomon Juneau class also required a large support vessel to ensure fuel, parts and other consumables. Without a support vessel, often a container transport, the Juneau could only operate on-site for 60 days before requiring resupply. Crews also found the vessel cramped and work area tight. The Juneau saw extensive operations during many of the larger combats of the Four-Years War. The Solomon Juneau was removed from service in 2265.

Of the 20 built, 3 were destroyed during the war, 1 was destroyed along the triangle boarder. 2 were scrapped after combat operations and 1 was scrapped after damage sustained during the study of a ion storms near the Shapley Nebula. 3 were sold to the Andorian government and 10 are listed as decommissioned. The Solomon Juneau was built at the Sol VI and Andor facilities.
