Notes

The Type 7 was introduced to a larger and heavier counterpart to the Type 6. In common with the 6, the Type 7 has a Duranium Tritanium hull which has greatly increased the strength and durability of the structure. The computer and sensor suite is also of a more advanced generation than those of the preceeding Types. The Type six continues in production, although the advent of the new field=replicatable shuttle models capable of vastly higher warp speeds is likely to cut the projected production of a further 700+ units drastically.

Comments

There isn't that much to say about this one; it's one of the TNG-era craft, and appears to have been purpose designed for that show rather than being a modification of a TOS shuttle like the Type 6. The capabilities are very limited, most especially the speed; warp 1.75 works out to 6.45 x c, at which speed crossing one light year would take over 56 days - crossing one sector (20 light years) would take 3.1 years! Given this, it seems that the Type 6 and 7 are intended to make interplanetary trips faster than their sub-warp cousins, rather than being interstellar ships in their own right.
