While most of the 117s in the Vanguard Project have been ordered as part of normal fleet expenses, the Lacuna was actually a surplus craft- a partial build hull of a 117 when the Xerxes plant was shut down during the Nebula Storm of 06, but salvaged and put together through a combination of salvage and “non-cost acquisition” parts.
As such it is configured somewhat in the vein of the scouting specs, though with all non-standard parts – useful for maintaining cover, though admittedly, perhaps increasing some work with regards to maintenance.
Nonetheless, we expect a crew resourceful enough to gather the parts to make a working ship to also be capable in its upkeep, especially as Vanguard teams are sent to deep exploration with little resource support.
