Re: A Warp Fighter

I see fighters in the Star Trek Universe as derivative of photon and quantum torpedoes. Those Torpedoes have to over take their targets to be effective, if the Star Ship Enterprise could just outrun them, they wouldn't make effective weapons. Perhaps those torpedo warp engines don't last very long, only long enough to get their warheads to their targets. An improvement on torpedo design could improve those engines, and replace the warhead with a cockpit and a pair of phaser cannons, and we have a Star Trek fighter.
