The Sprint-class Rescue Craft is used to transport and treat wounded sentients in medical emergencies. 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 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 response craft.
Lives depend on the Sprint's crew and the medical quality provided. Therefore, on-board facilities are equipped with medical equipment for advanced life support and stabilization, with little room for much else. Furthermore, the major producers of these ships are prepared to make customizations to the Sprint on a case-by-case basis. As its design is optimized to allow room for as many patients as possible, the ship's actual flight crew is small. The majority of the ship is devoted to accommodating a small number of doctors, two medical rooms, and approximately forty patients. Due to the compactness of the craft, prolonged flight on this ship would be cramped and uncomfortable for the able-bodied.
