1.) The Sparrowhawk-class fighter was designed by Colonel Alan Carter of Alpha Luna and Lt. Charlaine Tucker of Starfleet. The idea was to make a smaller, more aerodynamic craft capable of maneuvering within the atmosphere of a planet for defensive purposes.
2.) The initial run of Sparrowhawk fighters were made from existing Eagle Transporter parts recovered from crashed vehicles. The weapons systems were upgraded to Starfleet standard.
3.) The dimensions of this craft are based on speculation. The ship was designed by Nick Macarty and is used with permission.
