i dont think runabouts count as starships, more like shuttlecraft really.
Runabouts are considered starships (at least by the 24th-Century definition of the term). They have U.S.S. designations as well as individual Starfleet hull (NCC) registries, unlike shuttles. They presumably can do everything a starship can do, except in a smaller package. An "ultra-light starship" may be a more appropriate term for them.
