Haakonian


Shuttle

General description

Nothing is known on this small Haakonian vessel.
Article: Redresses of the Tarellian Vessel

Known shuttles

No name given
 

Annotations

Dr. Jetrel used this shuttle in VOY: "Jetrel". The shuttle is a re-use of the Zalkonian ship. Self-evidently, the two must be must be different designs.

Hazari


Ship

General description

The heavily armed ships of the Hazari bounty hunters are equipped with tractor beams. They usually attack in pairs, the second one reinforcing the shields of the lead ship.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

Several Hazari ships were seen in VOY: "Think Tank".

Class specifications

None available

 


Shuttle

General description

The Hazari shuttle is an armed vessel of at most 20m length.

Known shuttles

No name given
 

Annotations

  1. The Hazari shuttle examined the fake debris field and was towed into Voyager's shuttle bay in VOY: "Think Tank". Two shuttles were among the ships that attacked the Think Tank in the end.
  2. The model is the same that will later appear as the Wysanti ship. Clearly the two designs can't be related. Although it is quite understandable as it helped to save costs, it is also problematic that the shuttle's interior is identical to that of the large Hazari ship.

Class specifications

Crew complement: 2

 

Hierarchy


Ship type 1

General description

Hierarchy ships have an egg-shaped hull with an almost organic surface texture and an external skeleton. They are equipped with advanced sensors and with cloaking devices.
Article: Analysis of the Ships in the "Void"
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

These ships appeared in VOY: "Tinker, Tenor, Doctor, Spy" and "The Void". It is the one also correctly depicted in the Star Trek Fact Files. The vessel in the void, unlike the others, was "a survey vessel, not equipped to fight", according to its crew. The large panel protruding from the upper hull of type 1 seems to be extendable. It was not visible in the ship's first scene inside the nebula in "Tinker, Tenor, Doctor, Spy".

Class specifications

None available

 


Ship type 2

General description

The second type of Hierarchy ships is similar to type 1 but most likely larger.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

The type 2 could be seen in VOY: "Renaissance Man". The lighting is slightly different than on the previous Hierarchy ships. But most obviously its structure is different. A "nose" was added to the vessel's hull, and the large sensors on the port and starboard sides were replaced with flush panels. Owing to the modifications type 2 can be supposed to be bigger than type 1, although the first seemed to have a crew of just one person.

Hirogen


Holographic decoy

General description

This particular probe was used as a decoy. It was programmed to holographically create the image and other sensor readings of a much larger Hirogen ship.
Gallery: Hirogen Ships

Known probes

No name given
 

Annotations

The decoy was utilized by the renegade hologram Iden in VOY: "Flesh and Blood" against Voyager and a Hirogen task force. We may presume that it is actually a modified Hirogen standard probe and not something routinely used as decoy by the Hirogen themselves (as holographic technology is fairly new to them).

Class specifications

None available

 


Holoship

General description

The role of this Hirogen vessel with holographic emitters is unknown. Most likely it is another type of hunter ship.
Gallery: Hirogen Ships

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

The episode VOY: "Flesh and Blood" creates the impression that Iden, the renegade Bajoran hologram, got hold of this ship rather accidentally. We may assume that since "The Killing Game" other Hirogen ship types are equipped with holographic emitters too. The designation as "holoship" was chosen here only due to the lack of a more precise description of the basic ship type.

Class specifications

Length: approx. 200m

 


Hunter ship

General description

This is the most common ship type in service of the Hirogen. In spite of its considerable size, the ship is usually manned with only a handful of hunters.
Gallery: Hirogen Ships

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

  1. The hunter ship was seen in VOY: "Hunters", "Prey" and "The Killing Game". It is possible that most of the vessel's volume is uninhabitable and is dedicated to storage, power, propulsion and weapons. A high degree of automation along with redundant systems may allow the small crew to focus on the hunt instead of the trivialities of space travel.
  2. The design of the ship includes ablative armor made of monotanium, with an additional carapace to protect the warp nacelles. Like all Hirogen vessels, they may be recognized because of their dicyclic warp signatures.

Class specifications

Length: approx. 150m

 


Space station

General description

This space station is equipped with a large holodeck as a hunting training facility.
Gallery: Hirogen Ships

Known stations

No name given
 

Annotations

The space station from VOY: "Flesh and Blood" is most likely a standard Hirogen design most of whose voluminous interior was turned into a holodeck with the knowledge about this technology acquired in VOY: "The Killing Game", leaving only the outer spaceframe unchanged. The crew complement may vary considerably, as most hunters seem to stay aboard only temporarily, with only a small permanent crew of technicians like Donik, the only survivor of the massacre.

Class specifications

Crew complement: 44

 


Venatic

General description

The Venatic class is much like a larger version of the standard hunter ship. Despite its huge size, the crew apparently consists of only dozens of hunters.
Gallery: Hirogen Ships

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

The name "Venatic" comes from the dialogue in VOY: "Flesh and Blood". The two Venatic-class ships seen there are actually a re-arranged CGI of the standard hunter ship. Fortunately the modifications to the overall shape were extensive enough to justify that the single components of the model were also scaled up relative to Voyager.

Class specifications

Length: approx. 600m

 


Comm network relay

General description

The ancient communication network was built by an unknown alien race, using an only partially comprehensible technology including a quantum singularity as the power source. The Hirogen controlled part of this network for some time and claimed ownership of it until it was rendered useless.

Known stations

No name given
 

Annotations

  1. The comm network was used to transfer the Doctor to the Alpha Quadrant in VOY: "Message in a Bottle". One of many presumably identical network relay stations could be seen in the following episode "Hunters". It was crushed when the quantum singularity collapsed. The rest of the network was said to be inoperative because of a cascade reaction. Although the impression was created that the other relays were destroyed likewise, we may postulate that they still exist physically, and that only the link is broken. It would be ridiculous that the network could survive for millennia, only to be obliterated by one failure that may always occur everywhere in the system.
  2. The dull moment of the episode "Hunters" is when the crew is astonished about the use of a quantum singularity in the relay station, although it should be well-known since TNG: "Timescape" that Romulan Warbirds utilize such a power source.

Class specifications

Age: approx. 100,000 years

 

Ilari


Ship

General description

This is a small warp-capable vessel of Ilari origin.
Article: Redresses of the Husnock Ship

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

Former Ilari dictator Kieran and company used this vessel to escape Ilari authorities in VOY: "Warlord". All shots are stock footage of the smuggler ship from TNG: "Unification". As usual, the Delta Quadrant ship must be assumed to be a totally different design.

Class specifications

None available

 

"Imhotep"


Racing shuttle

General description

Assan's shuttle is probably especially built or modified to take part in races.
Article: Analysis of the Antarian Transstellar Rally

Known shuttles

No name given
 

Annotations

  1. The shuttle started its life as a Cardassian workbee.
  2. Assan was a participant of the Antarian Transstellar Rally in VOY: "Drive". His shuttle is at most half as long as the Delta Flyer. Assan's affiliation was not mentioned in the episode, only that he had been a ruthless fighter pilot. From Neelix's live report we may conclude that he is either "Terellian" or "Imhotep". Irina belongs to the "Terellians", Assan to the "Imhotep", according to startrek.com. As this correlation (not the moronic names, Imhotep is an Egyptian god) makes sense, I am sure the information comes from the script of the episode.

Class specifications

Length: approx. 10m

 

Kazon & Trabe

We may assume that, as stated and seen in VOY: "Alliances", the Kazon got all their known ship types from the Trabe.


Carrier



Possible variant

General description

The exact role of this huge Kazon ship is unknown, but it may serve as an operation base for the mostly nomadic sects.

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

  1. The ship is called "carrier" here due to a lack of a more precise term. Carriers appear in "Caretaker II", "Initiations", "Alliances", "Investigations" and "Basics I".
  2. The side view from the Star Trek Encyclopedia II is inaccurate. Our revision takes into account that the front section is larger, that the engines are orange and other discrepancies from the actual model. The depiction from the Encyclopedia, however, is sort of canon since it appeared on a screen in VOY: "Relativity". It is possibly a yet unseen variant of the familiar carrier.

Class specifications

Length: approx. 1800m

 


Fighter

General description

This small type of vessel is used as a shuttle or fighter. It is capable of atmospheric flight and landing.
Article: Kazon Ship Sizes

Known shuttles

No name given
 

Annotations

  1. Unlike we previously believed, there are subtle differences between the miniatures of the smaller Kazon fighter and the larger raider, as Jörg Hillebrand found out. To suggest a smaller size, the fighter has a cockpit window in the place of the bridge module. We have seen Kazon fighters of the size of a shuttle in VOY: "Caretaker", "Initiations", "Alliances", "Investigations" and "Basics".
  2. The richly detailed Kazon ship model is one of the very few examples of a ship with vertical orientation and is fun to watch, just for a change. The purpose of the wings, however, is uncertain on the ship. The trunk would obstruct planetary flight or even landing, although we know the fighter can land. The aft fins seem to hold the warp and impulse propulsion systems. The fighter is usually armed with phaser-like beam weapons.

Class specifications

Length: approx. 12m
Crew complement: 1

 


Raider

General description

This medium-sized Kazon vessel comprises several decks and a shuttlebay.
Article: Kazon Ship Sizes
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 1

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

Unlike we previously believed, there are subtle differences between the miniatures of the smaller Kazon fighter and the larger raider. To suggest a larger size, the raider has a bridge module in the place of the cockpit window. We have seen Kazon raiders, definitely ships with several decks, in VOY: "State of Flux", "Maneuvers" and "Investigations". In the latter episode we could see both ship types next to each other, and it became evident that the larger raider has a shuttlebay for the smaller fighters. The raider is usually equipped with phaser-like beam weapons and plasma torpedoes.

Class specifications

Length: approx. 160m

 


Predator

General description

The appearance and any specs of the Predator class are unknown.

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

The Predator class was only mentioned in the fake scenario in VOY: "Projections". Very likely it is identical either to the above raider or the carrier type.

Class specifications

None available

 


"Torpedo"

General description

This armored shuttle is used to penetrate the hull of an enemy ship in order to board it.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 1

Known shuttles

No name given
 

Annotations

  1. The Kazon "torpedo" appeared in VOY: "Maneuvers". It seems unlikely that the "torpedo" could have been developed in a short time especially for this one maneuver, much less with the notoriously bad engineering expertise of the Kazon. Considering that they don't have transporter technology, there are arguably more so equipped shuttles the Kazon inherited from the Trabe.
  2. The Fact Files drawing of the torpedo has slightly inaccurate overall proportions and details. The front tip of the real model, for instance, is not quite as pointed, and its octagonal profile is more pronounced. The reason is that the Fact Files illustrator obviously reproduced the look of the model kit, rather than of the studio miniature. There are some differences between the miniature and the full-scale mock-up too.

Class specifications

Length: approx. 7m
Crew complement: 8

 

Kobali


Ship

General description

The Kobali ship is small, well-armed and capable of very high warp speeds.
Article: Redresses of the Ramuran Tracer Ship

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

One Kobali ship pursued Lindsay Ballard's shuttle in VOY: "Ashes to Ashes", three more appeared to force her extradition. The miniature is a re-use of the Ramuran tracer ship. It becomes quite obvious that the ship in pursuit of the shuttle is supposed to be very big. But the size of the three attacking ships compared to Voyager is at most 50m (with only one or two decks) like that of the Ramuran ship. I don't find the idea plausible that there are two types of different sizes. It's not only the scaling problem, but also plot logic. Why wouldn't the big ship join the attack on Voyager?

Class specifications

None available

 


Shuttle

General description

No details are available on the Kobali shuttle, except that it must possess a very powerful warp propulsion system.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2

Known shuttles

No name given
 

Annotations

Lindsay Ballard took this shuttle to escape the Kobali in VOY: "Ashes to Ashes".

Class specifications

Length: approx. 7m

 

Kradin


Aircraft

General description

The Kradin are using this aircraft to attack planetary targets. 

Known aircrafts

No name given
 

Annotations

It is not entirely certain if this aircraft really exists, as it appeared in a simulation by the Vori in VOY: "Nemesis". But even though the simulation did not show the very nature of the Kradin military, their technology should have been reproduced in a realistic fashion. The CGI model of the aircraft was only seen from a distance, so the markings with Latin letters and human coats of arms were not visible and we can ignore them (they are removed on the above depiction). The model was originally built by Foundation Imaging as human fighters (in a war against aliens) for a show called "Vortex", from where they retained the lettering.

Class specifications

1 seat
Length: approx. 13m

 

Kraylor


Medical transport

General description

This vessel is employed by the Kraylor as a medical transport. Its defense systems being rather weak, one particular vessel has been equipped with the prototype of a cloaking device to hide it from enemy ships of the Annari.
Article: Analysis of the Ships in the "Void"

Known ships

Medical Transport 136 "Nightingale"
 

Annotations

  1. The Kraylor vessel from VOY: "Nightingale" is a re-use of the CGI of the Federation fighter with alarmingly few modifications. The cockpit has been replaced with a proper bridge module, many small windows were added and the engine glow was changed from blue to orange. But aside from that, there were no changes to the very characteristic shape of the small Federation vessel.
  2. The same design appeared once again, this time in the hands of the Annari as Valen's vessel in "The Void". Since there was some confusion about the ships in the Void anyway, this may well have been another Kraylor ship that Valen got his hands on.

Class specifications

Medical transport
Length: approx. 320m
Crew complement: 56
Max. speed: Warp 6

 

Krenim

VOY: "Year of Hell" leaves the impression that certain Krenim vessels exist in only in certain timelines. Avoiding any confusion with pages about ships of different timelines, I treat all ships as if they exist in "our" timeline in one form or another.


Patrol ship

General description

The small patrol ship has no armament that could be a match for a Federation Intrepid class.
Gallery: The Krenim and Their Enemies

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

The patrol ship appears in timelines of VOY: "Year of Hell" where the Krenim Imperium controls only a small region of space. The impression may arise that the patrol ship is not equipped with warp drive, but there is no evidence to support this. On the contrary, it would be much more plausible with warp drive to able to intercept Voyager. Also, there is no reason to assume that the more powerful versions of the Krenim Empire don't use this type of vessel.

Class specifications

Length: approx. 260m
Crew complement: 15

 


Warship

General description

The large Krenim warship boasts chroniton torpedoes as its principal weapons, capable of penetrating an enemy's ship's shields due to a phase variance.
Gallery: The Krenim and Their Enemies

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

The ship along with its temporal technology apparently exists only in timelines where the Krenim Imperium is strong. This should be the case at the end of the episode VOY: "Year of Hell".

Class specifications

Length: approx. 500m
Max. speed: Warp 6

 


Weapon ship

General description

The weapon ship was devised by Krenim scientist Annorax in order to alter history 200 years ago. It is equipped with a temporal incursion weapon and temporal shielding to protect it against changes in the timeline.
Gallery: The Krenim and Their Enemies

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

This vessel obviously does not exist any longer (or better: never existed) after it has erased itself from time when the temporal core destabilized at the end of VOY: "Year of Hell".

Class specifications

Length: approx. 1550m
Max. speed: Warp 6
