Delta Quadrant Ships A-E

Delta Quadrant A-E - Delta Quadrant F-K - Delta Quadrant L-R - Delta Quadrant S-Z - Unknown Affiliation

 

Akritirian


Freighter
General description
This vessel with its boxy design resembles freighters of many other races. It has an ion-based drive system, which uses paralithium that may converted to trilithium explosives.
Article: Redresses of the Batris
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
1) The particular ship which appeared in VOY: "The Chute" was said to have an Akritirian registry. It was owned by Vel of the terrorist group "Open Sky".
2) Quite obviously, this is just another reincarnation of the versatile Batris design, which would be quite out of place in the Delta Quadrant. The brief shots seen of it in VOY: "The Chute" are in fact stock footage of the huge sublight freighter in TNG: "The Final Mission", although the Akritirian ship was not supposed to be that large. Actually, Janeway even said that the ship should be pulled into the shuttlebay! But even if we take into account that it has to differ considerably from the Batris anyway, the ship didn't look that small.
Class specifications
Crew complement: 2

 


Patrol ship
General description
The Akritirian use this type of patrol vessel which is smaller than Voyager yet well-armed.
Article: Redresses of the Akritirian Patrol Ship
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 1
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
Although it was not supposed to be much larger than Voyager, the patrol ship has many rows of windows in the forward center section, but they were never clearly visible.
Class specifications
Length: approx. 150m

 


Space prison
General description
This Akritirian detention facility is free floating in space. Prisoners are left to themselves, in large compartments, and only supplied with food.
Known stations
No name given
  Annotations
None
Class specifications
Diameter: approx. 1120m

 

Aksani


Racing shuttle
General description
This is a fast sublight racing shuttle. 

Article: Analysis of the Antarian Transstellar Rally
Known shuttles
No name given
  Annotations
It becomes evident from Neelix's report that the design in the race which will appear as the Wysanti ship one episode later must be the Aksani vessel.
Class specifications
None available

 

Ankari


Ship
General description
This small ship is equipped with an advanced warp propulsion system.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The Ankari ship is encountered thousands of light years from its home planet in VOY: "Equinox", so it must have a very powerful warp propulsion system. There is no close-up of the vessel in the episode, but the CGI is rather detailed and shares a couple of features with the Akritirian patrol ship (see above).
Class specifications
None available

 

Annari


Combat ship
General description
This vessel is used by the Annari captain Valen, although it may have been originally a Kraylor medical transport.
Article: Analysis of the Ships in the "Void"
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
We can identify Valen from VOY: "The Void" as Annari just like the enemies of the Kraylor from VOY: "Nightingale". His ship is a Kraylor medical transport. It doesn't seem to make much sense that the medical transport has become a formidable warship in the Void (unless Valen has really superior tactical officers and engineers). Yet, it is plausible that of all people in the Void Valen may have captured a ship of his enemies, the Kraylor. It is well possible that whoever composed the CGI designs for this episode confused the two races.
Class specifications
Length: approx. 320m

 


Warship
General description
Annari warships are equipped with phaser banks and a tractor beam emitter.
Article: Redresses of the Ramuran Tracer Ship

Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
Several Annari warships appeared in VOY: "Nightingale". They are modifications of the Ramuran tracer ship. While the shape of the ship remained the same, the texture was modified to suggest many rows of windows, making this design much larger than the Ramuran version.
Class specifications
Length: approx. 300m

 

Antarian

The "Antarian Transstellar Rally" was featured in VOY: "Drive". There were countless different designs both among the ships of the participants and of the spectators. Obviously all of them were CGI, and almost all of them were re-uses. With the exception of the supposed Antarian ship below and the two new ones, Assan's shuttle and Irina's shuttle, none of the other vessels had an active role. Irina belongs to the "Terellians", Assan to the "Imhotep", according to startrek.com. This correlation (not the moronic names themselves) makes sense if we pay attention to what Neelix says during the race. The information must come from the script of the episode. The above Aksani vessel can be related to this specific species. The Chessu are another mentioned race, but we can't tell which spacecraft belongs to them. The rally is analyzed here: Analysis of the Antarian Transstellar Rally.


Ship
General description
This is an Antarian ship of unknown purpose.
Article: Redresses of the Karemma Ship
Article: Analysis of the Antarian Transstellar Rally
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
One of these ships transferred the race coordinator to Voyager, so it may be assumed that this is an Antarian design. The supposed Antarian vessel is a modification of the Karemma ship from DS9: "Starship Down", and a re-use of a Bajoran ship in DS9: "Shadows and Symbols". We clearly wouldn't expect this characteristic design in the Delta Quadrant. At least, it seems to have a different, less colorful and maybe less detailed surface texture here.
Class specifications
Length: approx. 400m

 


Buoy
General description
These buoys obviously just mark the flight lane of the Antarian Transstellar Rally.
Known buoys
No name given

B'omar


Patrol ship
General description
The patrol ship is a small vessel used to protect the B'omar territory. These ships are only moderately armed, but are a threat to intruders owing to their large number. They are equipped with transporters and have a top speed below Warp 8.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 1
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The B'omar ships appeared in VOY: "The Raven".
Class specifications
Length: approx. 14m

 

Ba'neth


Ship
General description
The xenophobic Ba'neth use this type of vessel with a permanent cloaking.
Article: Redresses of the Akritirian Patrol Ship
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The Ba'neth ship (VOY: "Riddles") was previously seen as the Akritirian patrol ship, and unfortunately this won't remain the last re-use of this too easily recognizable vessel. The two civilizations are tens of thousands of light years apart and the Ba'neth hide themselves from the rest of the universe. Nonetheless, I wouldn't exclude the possibility of a technology transfer with the Akritirians, considering that the space stations of the two civilizations exhibit certain similarities too (see below). Maybe the fact that the Akritirians are sufficiently far away is just the reason that the Ba'neth contacted them?
Class specifications
Length: approx. 150m

 


Station
General description
The exact purpose of this Ba'neth space station remains unknown. Like their ships too, the station is permanently cloaked.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known stations
No name given
  Annotations
The Ba'neth space station is a new design, but its horizontal arms may have been derived from those of the Akritirian space prison (see above). The basic shape looks suspiciously like Voyager's radio beacon.
Class specifications
Crew complement: approx. 3000

 

Benkaran

See Nygean

 

Benthan


Coaxial drive prototype
General description
This is a small prototype vessel to test the revolutionary coaxial warp drive. Unlike conventional warp drive, this propulsion concept is based on space folding.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 1
Known shuttles
No name given
  Annotations
In VOY: "Vis ā Vis", the consciousness of the original test pilot Steth was replaced with that of an unknown alien entity. The angular design of the test ship is in strong contrast to the almost organic shapes of the Benthan patrol ships, but that may be because of its experimental nature. The design also appeared in the Antarian Transstellar Rally in VOY: "Drive", but I'm likely to ignore that.
Class specifications
None available

 


Mithran
General description
The Mithran-class fighter is apparently a powerful warship.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
"Steth" told Tom Paris about this fighter. He was lying about many things, so the ship type might not really exist. 
Class specifications
None available

 


Patrol ship
General description
Hardly anything is known about the Benthan patrol ships with their organic looking shapes.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 1
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
Two Benthan patrol ships were sent to retrieve "Steth" in VOY: "Vis ā Vis".
Class specifications
None available

 

Bothan


Ship type 1
General description
No details are available on this small ship.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
There were three illusions of ships in VOY: "Persistence of Vision", but this one appeared to be modeled after an authentic Bothan vessel. The miniature will be re-used and will be visible far more clearly as the Serosian ship in VOY: "Revulsion". Note that the front and rear will be switched, and that it seems unlikely that the Bothan version already has the window dome (which would be at the rear end).
Class specifications
None available

 


Ship type 2
General description
It is possible that this ship of Kazon design in the hands of the Bothans exists only an illusion or a projection.

Article: Kazon Ship Sizes
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
It is possible that through their mind control techniques the Bothans got their hands on various alien ships. Dialogue from the episode corroborates the notion that the Kazon ship may be such a booty vessel: "There are lots of rumors about ships entering Bothan space never to be heard from again. My sources on Mithren say that they have lost a number of vessels." On the other hand, if the Bothans could create any form of illusions, wouldn't they rather incorporate one of their own designs instead of the tiny and weak Kazon fighter?
Class specifications
None available

 


Ship type 3
General description
It is possible that this ship exists only an illusion or a projection.
Article: Redresses of the Talarian Observation Craft
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
This vessel is a surprise because it is yet another slight redress of the versatile design that started as the Talarian observation craft and will appear later in the 2nd season of Voyager as the Drayan vessel (below) in "Innocence". In the Bothan illusion it still has the spikes on the engines from its appearance as T'Lani cruiser, and the labels on the wings are still there too. It is unknown to which race the ship may originally have belonged. The best guess would be a variant of the Drayan design (also because the nacelle gleams bluish yet slightly different on both ships).
Class specifications
None available

 

Brunali


Transport
General description
This transport ship is capable of achieving only low warp speeds.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
1) The ship was seen in VOY: "Child's Play" as a decoy, emitting a false high-warp signature to get the attention of a Borg sphere. The model is a re-use of the Caatati vessel 1 (below). Since the two civilizations are far apart and the Brunali ship doesn't seem to be as advanced as the Caatati vessel, I am inclined to ignore the similarity. The Brunali ship was not clearly visible anyway.
2) In the Star Trek Fact Files there are distorted orthographic views of the Brunali ship. But there is no visual evidence from the episode that the ship really had different proportions than the Caatati version. Only the lighting was modified.
Class specifications
Class-1 transport

 

Caatati


Ship type 1
General description
Specifications of this Caatati vessel are not available, except that it is equipped with a tractor beam. The systems of the ship need thorium isotopes to operate.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 1
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
27 Caatati ships appeared in VOY: "Day of Honor". Only 30 ships were said to have survived after the Caatati civilization had been assimilated by the Borg. Most of the fleet consisted of the smaller design of type 1, including the vessels that initially rendez-voused with Voyager and the one that tractored away the warp core. Hence, an approximate size of the ship can be derived by comparing it to the warp core (27m tall) of the Intrepid class.
Class specifications
Length: approx. 100m
Crew complement: 88

 


Ship type 2
General description
Specifications of this Caatati vessel are not available, except that it is considerably larger than type 1. The systems of the ship need thorium isotopes to operate.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
1) Years after VOY: "Day of Honor" had aired, Jörg Hillebrand discovered that there are actually two distinct types of Caatati vessels in the episode. The first is the already customary type 1 whose CGI model is accurately depicted in the Star Trek Fact Files. But when the desperate Caatati begin to attack Voyager, we can see at least two vessels of the type 2, obviously more elongated and definitely much bigger than type 1 (and maybe bigger than Voyager too). Type 2 has a longer fore and aft section, and it incorporates several rows of light that type 1 doesn't have. If we look more closely, we can make out something surprising: The rear end of type 2 looks like Voyager's "neck", with the typical conical overall shape, the shuttlebay cut-out and panels on top which are lit on the Caatati ship. The whole design of type 2 appears to be a CGI kitbash. Most likely it incorporates parts of type 1 too, but the overall shape is quite different.
2) The Star Trek Encyclopedia III has a depiction of an elongated Caatati vessel that I discarded a long time ago because it was blurry and seemed to be just inaccurate compared to the detailed Fact Files renditions of type 1. But now we think that the Encyclopedia actually depicts type 2, yet at a very low resolution. I based the proportions of the detailed new side view of type 2 on this coarse Encyclopedia depiction. 
Class specifications
None available

 

Caretaker

See Nacene

 

Chessu

The Chessu ships of VOY: "Drive" are likely two Qomar designs originally seen in VOY: "Virtuoso". Please refer to the Analysis of the Antarian Transstellar Rally.

 

Chokuzan


Ship
General description
No specs are available on this ship.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The Chokuzan ship was created by Q as a ruse in VOY: "Q2". But it is a reasonable assumption that the ship class actually exists, considering that Q2 was easily deceived by its appearance. The ship model is a color variant of the Monean starship/submarine, now with green engines.
Class specifications
None available

 

Cravic


Ship
General description
The Cravic, or rather the automated units who killed their creators, are using this large combat vessel against the obviously identical type of the Pralor androids.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The only difference between the Pralor and Cravic ships as well as between the androids themselves lies in their colors (Pralor: silver, Cravic: gold). The origin of the technology is obviously the same and has not been further developed since the Pralor and Cravic were eliminated by their respective automated units. It is clear that there is supposed to be much symbolism in this symmetry, and it has to be taken with a grain of salt technology-wise.
Class specifications
Diameter: approx. 450m

 

Devore


Sensor array
General description
The Devore sensor array performs scans for ships by sending out pulses in regular intervals.
Known stations
No name given
  Annotations
The sensor array could be seen in VOY: "Counterpoint".
Class specifications
Unmanned

 


Shuttle
General description
This is a small, single-seated shuttle.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known shuttles
No name given
  Annotations
Inspector Kashyk used this shuttle to "defect" to Voyager in VOY: "Counterpoint". The small vessel could be seen in Voyager's shuttlebay, allowing a rough size estimation.
Class specifications
Length: approx. 6m

 


Warship
General description
The Devore warship is a formidable vessel that dwarfs a Federation Intrepid class.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
We can only presume that the Devore warship is heavily armed, as otherwise it might not pose such a threat to Voyager (considering that Janeway usually would not tolerate the regular inspections).
Class specifications
Length: approx. 800m

 

Dinaal


Hospital
General description
The huge hospital is hovering above the planet's surface.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known stations
Hospital Ship 4-2
  Annotations
The Dinaal hospital is from VOY: "Critical Care". It is unknown which kind of technology keeps the hospital floating. The energy expenditure would be enormous.
Class specifications
None available

 

Dralian


Beacon
General description
It is unknown what it would be usually used for, but this particular beacon emits a false warp signature.
Article: Redresses of the Reptohumanoid Ship
Known probes
No name given
  Annotations
Gar deceives his pursuers with this decoy in VOY: "Critical Care". The model consists of two engine pods of his vessel connected to form an "X".
Class specifications
None available

 


Ship
General description
This ship is owned by the thief Gar, who stole the EMH from Voyager.
Article: Redresses of the Reptohumanoid Ship
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
Gar's vessel from VOY: "Critical Care" is a slight CGI modification of the Reptohumanoid ship. The plasma color differs and the main body was modified adding a cockpit window. The Fact Files depiction of this vessel is correct.
Class specifications
Length: approx. 80m

 

Drayan


Ship
General description
No facts are available on the Drayan ship.
Article: Redresses of the Talarian Observation Craft
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The Drayan ship could be seen in VOY: "Innocence". This fourth redress of the original Tamarian ship (TNG: "Darmok") has blue engines, and the pointed engine front caps are missing like on the T'Lani cruiser (DS9: "Armageddon Game"), only that the four spikes on the nacelles are missing too here. Of course, the Drayan shouldn't be related to any of the other designs.
Class specifications
None available

 


Shuttle
General description
No facts are available on the Drayan shuttle.
Article: Redresses of the Talarian Warship
Known shuttles
No name given
  Annotations
The Drayan shuttle is the final re-use of the versatile Talarian warship and one of the last physical models built or modified for Voyager. It sports new custom-made nacelles and a new cockpit superstructure, while the X-wings are missing. Note that both existing Drayan vessel designs are derived from originally Talarian ship models.
Class specifications
None available

 

Druoda


Self-guided missile
General description
This weapon is warp-capable, fully armored and self-guiding. It has a maximum range of 80 light years.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known probes
No name given
  Annotations
The missiles were featured in VOY: "Warhead".
Class specifications
Length: 1m

 

Entharan


Ship
General description
No specs are available on the small vessel owned by arms dealer Kovin, except that it is equipped with a low-yield photonic cannon.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The model used for Kovin's ship (VOY: "Retrospect") has previously appeared as the Flaxian vessel. Actually, it almost seems like all scenes are stock footage from DS9: "Improbable Cause" - except for the engines at the aft end which glow blue instead of red on the Entharan version. Nonetheless, we must postulate that we are dealing with two entirely different designs.
Class specifications
None available

 


Target buoy
General description
This buoy serves as the target for Kovin's isokinetic cannon. It is made of
solid monotanium, ten meters thick, shielded by a chromoelectric forcefield.
Known probes
No name given
  Annotations
The buoy, like Kovin's vessel, appeared in VOY: "Retrospect".
Class specifications
None available

 

Etanian


Warship
General description
The warship of the Etanian Order is large and heavily armed.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The warship appeared in VOY: "Rise". The ship can only be seen head on and once in a close side view and is hard to identify. Its front view resembles the Merchantman with the modifications made for the Vidiian ship type 1, with more changes to the wings that now seem to form an upper and a lower shell. However, I think the Etanian warship is actually a model we haven't seen so far. It seems to consist of a compact central core (that lights up when the weapons are being activated) with a framework around it, not unlike the Hierarchy vessel (although it is definitely a different model).
Class specifications
Crew complement: >2000
