When the crew realized that type-9 shuttles were becoming inadequate in the increasingly hostile Delta Quadrant, it took the near-loss of a multispatial probe to finally convince Captain Matijević and Commander Panda to construct the vessel.
The vessel blended Starfleet and Borg technologies, and was designed in collaboration between Ensign Liam Bain, Ensign Ezzy Bain, Commander Panda, Lieutenant Jenny Wakeman, and Lieutenant Shirley the Loon. It featured an ultra-aerodynamic tetraburnium alloy hull, extendable warp nacelles, parametallic hull plating, unimatrix shielding, and a Borg-inspired weapon system, including photonic missiles. For aesthetic reasons, the flight controls were designed to resemble those of 20th century aircraft. The addition of dynametric tailfins was denied.
The success of the first Flyer gave the crew adequate reason to construct a second vessel in 2377 after the first one was destroyed during a Borg engagement.
