The Sprint-class rescue craft is a emergency medical spacecraft used to transport and treat wounded sentients. One of the most reliable ships in the market of ambulatory care, the Sprint is designed and operated to provide one of the most efficient levels of medical attention, outside of professional medical facilities. These "med runners" are commonly used throughout the galaxy to respond to starship distress calls and provide rapid medical care to those in need. The ship's flat, corrugated appearance is more functional than aesthetic; installed shields and hyperdrive enable it to often be the first on the scene and quickly transport the dead and wounded. Sophisticated sensors specialized in deep space survivor location add to the features of this first responder craft.
Lives depend on the Sprint's crew and medical quality. Therefore, on-board facilities come with standard medical equipment for advanced life support and stabilization with little room for much else. The major producers of these vehicles are prepared to make customizations with transport reanimation and medical equipment on a case by case basis. The Sprint typically has a small crew of three and several medics staff the patient transport area suitable for accommodating up to four dozen causalities. Space is optimized solely for packing in the maximum casualties for medical treatment; prolonged flight on this ship would be cramped and uncomfortable for the able bodied.
