History:

The original design for the 401 was taken from a proposal from Doctor Rodney McKay for a small ship capable of going one on one with the light Wraith Cruisers. Added to this, from Sam Carter and Bill Lee was a similar need for a ship to go against Al-Kesh in the Milky Way. All three scientists had a large input to the outcome of the ship and it final design. The first prototype, was tested by Captain Jennifer Hailey and Major Paul Davis. The little ship has since then more than proved itself in combat against both enemy types and others as well. A flight of only three, was able to take down a Hatak in the battles with the Hozgura.
