The Raven was a civilian survey ship. At least the Hansen's weren't members of Starfleet, anyway. If I recall correctly, Starfleet in fact knew what they were looking for and didn't approve. You'd think, if it were a Starfleet ship, they'd have denied them use of it at that point.

It'd be good for a larf as an NPC ship you need to rescue, a background NPC vessel for social systems and Sol, or a token player ship like the runabout. It seems like an easy enough design to reproduce. But for Starfleet to use it in a fight? Canon can't even confirm it had as much as a single phaser on it. I'm inclined to be on the side that says that's because it probably didn't.
