Delta Quadrant Ships L-R

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

 

Ledosian


Buoy
General description
Many buoys like this mark flight lanes in the orbit of the Ledosian homeworld.
Known buoys
No name given
  Annotations
Tom had to pass by these buoys during his flight training in VOY: "Natural Law". They don't seem to have any other purpose than shine bright.
Class specifications
None available

 


Patrol vessel
General description
Small ships like this one with decent armament patrol the vicinity of the Ledosian homeworld.
Article: Redresses of the Akritirian Patrol Ship
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The Ledosian ship appeared in VOY: "Natural Law". It had wing-like rounded extensions bent forward, a closed rear section and a jagged bow. Closer examination reveals that this bow is actually a Lokirrim ship. When docked to the station the Ledosian vessel seemed to be plain gray (the actual color of the model), while during the flight it had a green hue. The Ledosian patrol ship looks like it is a bit bigger than the Delta Flyer.
Class specifications
None available

 


"Scaffold" vessel
General description
This ship with a characteristic framework around its main body is docked to the Ledosian station, but its origin and purpose is unknown.

Article: Redresses of the Karemma Ship
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The ship is a redress of the Bajoran unknown ship 4 CGI, which in turn was derived from the Karemma ship. The scaffolding may not be a permanent part of the vessel. 
Class specifications
None available

 


Space port
General description
This station orbits the Ledosian homeworld.
Known stations
No name given
  Annotations
At least two of the large space ports appear in VOY: "Natural Law". It is the CGI model of the Markonian space station (see below), flipped over and with a couple of modifications.
Class specifications
None available

 

Various ships, seen at the Ledosian homeworld in VOY: "Natural Law"
All starships docked to the Ledosian space station are unchanged re-uses of previously seen CGI models. Except for the Ledosian patrol vessel listed above none of them has to be Ledosian, as the space stations may be trade centers. Some of them could be exactly what they look like, most obviously the Hirogen holoship. But overall they must be seen just as random generic starships.

 

Lokirrim


Patrol ship
General description
This ship is armed with a photonic disruptor to destroy holographic projections, but is inferior to a Starfleet Intrepid class.
Article: Redresses of the Akritirian Patrol Ship
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The model is a re-use of the Akritirian patrol ship. Apparently the texture has been modified, and the Akritirian logo was removed. It also seems that the ship is now supposed to be smaller, since there are fewer windows on the Lokirrim version. Maybe these modifications are sufficient to make this a completely different design (which would be desirable considering the 30,000 light years between the two civilizations).
Class specifications
Length: approx. 180m

 


Warship
General description
With the same basic design as the Lokirrim patrol ship, the warship is equipped with additional weapons, but still no match for a Starfleet Intrepid class.
Article: Redresses of the Akritirian Patrol Ship
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The Star Trek Fact Files acknowledge that the warship is different from the patrol ship. Some more weapon and engine pods have been added, and there are wing extensions on port and starboard. The window rows are the same as on the patrol ship, so we can assume they are the same size.
Class specifications
Length: approx. 180m

 

Malon


Escape pod
General description
These small escape pods may be constructed for only one person.
Known shuttles
No name given
  Annotations
These escape pods belong to a Malon freighter type 2 and were seen in VOY: "Juggernaut". There were 37 of them, probably the freighter's complete complement. At a crew size of typically less than a dozen, they are likely built for only one or at most two persons.
Class specifications
Escape pod

 


Export vessel
11th gradient
General description
This is one of different types of garbage scows that are employed to carry away antimatter waste from the Malon homeworld. The ship is armed with cannons that fire antimatter charges.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
As hinted at by Controller Emck in the episode VOY: "Night", it is thanks to the garbage industry's influence that precious antimatter is rather wasted than recycled on the Malon homeworld. A flaw is how carelessly large clouds of antimatter are vented from the ship, which is in strong contrast to the extreme (and much more realistic) danger of having only a few grams of it in a Federation starship's warp core at a time. The ship also appeared in "Extreme Risk".
Class specifications
Antimatter waste tanker
Length: approx. 515m
Crew complement: 9

 


Freighter type 2
General description
This is another type of Malon freighter with a higher capacity. 
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
This ship type appeared in VOY: "Juggernaut". The basic spaceframe of the type 2 is apparently similar to the "export vessel 11th gradient", but the proportions are different. This tanker is supposed to be much larger, the size of the tanks being the same, rather than the superstructure. The final design of the vessel looks not quite as the preliminary sketch made by Rick Sternbach.
Class specifications
Antimatter waste tanker
Length: approx. 730m
Deck count: 42

 


Model ship
General description
This may be a model of an actual Malon vessel, possibly of their early space flight history.
Article: From the Bonaventure to the Phoenix
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
1) The model appeared in VOY: "Juggernaut". It was once supposed to represent Zefram Cochrane's first warp ship in the Star Trek Chronology before a different design, the Phoenix, was developed for "First Contact". Only the nacelles are missing on the Malon version. The same model was previously visible on a desk in DS9: "Cardassians", then still in the orange-gray color scheme as it was depicted in the book too. The color of the Malon model is not entirely certain because the lighting inside the ship is green.
2) Although science fiction like Star Trek may exist in the Malon civilization too, it is probably not a model of a fictional but of an authentic Malon starship. It may be well a vessel from the early days of Malon space travel with an accidental similarity to the human ship.
Class specifications
None available

 


Shuttle
General description
The Malon built a special shuttle with hull enforcements to retrieve Voyager's multispatial probe from the dense atmosphere of a gas giant.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known shuttles
No name given
  Annotations
This shuttle could be briefly seen in VOY: "Extreme Risk".
Class specifications
None available

 

Markonian


Outpost
General description
This is a large space station that allows several starships to dock a time.

Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known stations
No name given
  Annotations
The brisk trade outpost is visited by aliens of many different species. It appears in VOY: "Survival Instinct".
Class specifications
Length: approx. 5km

 


Ship
General description
Nothing is known about these vessels.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
At least three of these new vessels appeared at the Markonian outpost, two of them docked with the station. Their design with the saucer and its large windows in the rim looks almost like a part of the station, if it were not for the red engine at its rear end. Thus it can be inferred that the design is of Markonian origin.
Class specifications
None available

 

Various ships, seen at the Markonian outpost in VOY: "Survival Instinct"
All other starships docked to the Markonian station are unchanged re-uses of previously seen CGI models. The unknown ship may be the Ramuran tracer ship. Some of the ships could be exactly what they look like, most obviously the designs of the Ord'Mirit and of Onquanii's vessel, although the latter appears to be much smaller here. The rest should be regarded rather as generic starships.

 

Mawasi


Cruiser
General description
Similar to the Zahl ships, the warp nacelles of Mawasi ships are connected to the main body with two pairs of pylons.
Gallery: The Krenim and Their Enemies
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
1) The Mawasi cruiser appeared in VOY: "Year of Hell". The Mawasi were part of Janeway's coalition to defeat Annorax. A direct size comparison is possible, as one Mawasi cruiser crashes into the saucer of Voyager.
2) The ship model was also visible near the Markonian station in VOY: "Survival Instinct", but it seems unlikely that this was another Mawasi vessel.
Class specifications
Length: approx. 245m

 

Mislen


Freighter
General description
The Mislen freighter is a relatively large boxy design.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
A Mislen freighter fell victim to the "Swarm" ships in VOY: "The Swarm". It appears to be a new design.
Class specifications
None available

 

Monean


Starship/submarine
General description
Monean vessels may operate under the sea as well as in space. It is not known whether they are equipped with warp drive.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The vessels of the Monean Maritime Sovereignty appeared in VOY: "Thirty Days".
Class specifications
None available

 

Nacene


Caretaker Array
General description
The Caretaker Array is a large space station built to provide the Ocampa planet with energy.
Known stations
No name given
  Annotations
The Caretaker Array was encountered in VOY: "Caretaker". The station is huge, at least 22km across the narrow side when we compare it to the Kazon mothership. At this size, the part with the irregularly arranged tubes at the bottom alone would be as large as Earth Spacedock.
Class specifications
None available

 


Suspiria's Array
General description
Suspiria's Array is smaller than the Caretaker Array, but built using similar components.
Known stations
No name given
  Annotations
Suspiria's Array was encountered in VOY: "Cold Fire". It was said to be considerably smaller than the Caretaker Array, but structural analysis shows that essentially only the diagonal wings were omitted and the vertical structures moved closer to the central core. Maybe this modification is extensive enough to claim that the single parts are smaller too.
Class specifications
Crew complement: approx. 2000

 

Nasari


Patrol ship
General description
The Nasari use this small type of patrol vessels with nacelles attached to wings. Three ships of this type pose a considerable threat to a Federation Intrepid class. But they are inferior to vessels of the Taresians.
Known ships
Nerada
  Annotations
The Nasari patrol ship (VOY: "Favorite Son") is a re-use of the Romulan science ship, only that the color is different and that the ship was flipped, now moving "backward". We have to ignore the similarity.
Class specifications
Patrol ship
Length: approx. 50m

 

Nezu


Orbital tether
General description
The orbital tether is 300km long and leads from the surface of the Nezu colony to a station in synchronous orbit. The cabin has a magnetic drive and moves up the tether with about 40km/h.
Known shuttles
"Alixia"
  Annotations
The orbital tether was featured in VOY: "Rise". Neelix informally named the cabin for his late sister.
Class specifications
None available

 

Nihydron


Ship
General description
The Nihydron ships exhibit rounded, almost organic shapes. They are armed with particle weapons.
Gallery: The Krenim and Their Enemies
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
Nihydron ships appeared in VOY: "Year of Hell". The Nihydron were part of Janeway's coalition to defeat Annorax.
Class specifications
Length: approx. 310m

 

Norcadian


Tsunkatse ship
General description
The Tsunkatse ship serves as a mobile game arena and broadcasting center. It is equipped with a number of particle cannons and is well shielded with covariant shields.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The ship appeared in VOY: "Tsunkatse". It was operating in the Norcadian system and is listed as Norcadian ship in the Star Trek Fact Files. It is not entirely certain whether it is a Norcadian design, though. Its owner, Penk, and his guards obviously belong to a different race, since we know that Mezoti is Norcadian. Read here
Class specifications
Mass: 5,000,000t

 

Numiri


Patrol ship
General description
This patrol ship with a triangular planform is outfitted with a beam weapon and a tractor beam emitter. There is a shuttlebay at its rear end.
Article: Redresses of the Husnock Ship
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
Numiri patrol ships appeared in VOY: "Ex Post Facto". The miniature is essentially the same as of the former Bajoran freighter 2 with the characteristic hammerhead. The color was changed from brownish to dark gray.
Class specifications
None available

 

Nuu'Bari


Freighter
General description
No facts on this freighter are available.
Article: Redresses of the Husnock Ship
Article: Analysis of the Antarian Transstellar Rally
Article: Analysis of the Ships in the "Void"
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
1) The Nuu'Bari freighter from VOY: "Flesh and Blood" is a CGI version of the popular "hammerhead" freighter (which had previously appeared in the Delta Quadrant as Numiri patrol ship, still as a physical model). The proportions of the CGI may be different than those of the physical miniature, or it is just the usual inaccuracy of the 2D schematics in the Fact Files. The CGI model was available because it had previously appeared as a Bajoran ship in DS9: "Shadows and Symbols".
2) The CGI of the "hammerhead ship" first appeared on Voyager in VOY: "Drive". The two ships shown at the race site, only a few months before the encounter with the Nuu'Bari, could be easily of the same type as the Nuu'Bari freighter. The same goes for the ship of this type that was part of Janeway's Alliance in "The Void". 
Class specifications
Crew complement: 2

 

Nygean


Prisoner transport
General description
Th
is ship serves as a prisoner transport of the Nygean Detention Force.
Article: Redresses of the Reptohumanoid Ship
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
This Nygean ship appeared in VOY: "Repentance". The CGI is identical to the Reptohumanoid ship. Only the orientation is different, the Nygean vessel moves into the opposite direction. The Fact Files depiction of this vessel is incorrect because it actually shows the Dralian version.
Class specifications
None available

 


Ship
General description
Nothing is known about this ship type, except that it appears to be well-armed.
Article: Analysis of the Ships in the "Void"
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
Oddly, the Nygean vessel in VOY: "The Void" isn't the design that had been established in VOY: "Repentance", but is a re-use of the Hazari ship from VOY: "Think Tank". It seems very unlikely that the Nygeans would use exactly the same ships as the Hazari. Even if they had captured the vessel during their supposed long stay in the Void, it would be unlikely that it once belonged to the Hazari, thousands of light years away. So it could be as well a second Nygean ship design.
Class specifications
None available

 


Shuttle
General description
Nothing is known about this small craft, except that it is equipped with a transporter.
Article: Redresses of Tau's Pirate Fighter
Known shuttles
No name given
  Annotations
1) The Benkarans are said to inhabit 10% of Nygean space, but occupy 80% of all space in Nygean prisons. I take it that the Benkarans have been subdued or slowly infiltrated by the Nygeans, so their ship, which attempted to rescue Iko in VOY: "Repentance", is listed here. Its actual origin remains unknown anyway.
2) The shuttle is a modification of Kes' shuttle. The upper and lower engine pods have switched places, and the cockpit window in front was replaced with one row of smaller windows to suggest a larger size.
Class specifications
None available

 

Nyrian


Habitat ship
General description
The Nyrian habitat ship is a huge vessel with 94 different environments.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The Nyrian ship appeared in VOY: "Displaced". It was never seen from the outside in the episode, but its top and side views appeared on displays. There seem to be only 20 habitat pods altogether. Most likely there are five different environments in each of them.
Class specifications
None available

 

Ord'Mirit


Mining ship
General description
The Ord'Mirit mining ship is obviously an industrial vessel, either carrying ore or equipment for a mining colony.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
1) The Ord'Mirit mining ship was encountered by the Voyager clone in VOY: "Course: Oblivion". The CGI model depicted in the Star Trek Fact Files is labeled "IANMAC 700" in Latin letters. Either this model was supposed to appear as a human-built ship at first, or it is some kind of in-joke (made by someone named Ian on a Mac?). Fortunately it was not visible on screen. I have removed the letters from the above side view.
2) The same model may have appeared a second time at the Markonian station in VOY: "Survival Instinct".
Class specifications
Length: approx. 450m

 

Pralor


Ship
General description
The Pralor, or rather the automated units who killed their creators, are using this large combat vessel against the obviously identical type of the Cravic androids. The ship has the planform of a cross. Its weapon and defense systems are superior to those of Voyager.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 1
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

 

Qomar


Orbital station
General description
This station is one of several large facilities orbiting the Qomar homeworld.
Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 2
Known stations
No name given
  Annotations
The station, like all other Qomar ships, was seen in VOY: "Virtuoso".
Class specifications
None available

 

Various Qomar ships, seen in the background in VOY: "Virtuoso"
Since there is nothing distinctive about these four ships save their look (they are all new designs), they are not listed separately.

 

Quarra


Buoy
General description
The buoy probably serves as a demarcation of flight lanes.
Known probes
No name given
  Annotations
Like all Quarra designs, the buoy appeared in VOY: "Workforce". The buoy may be a modification of the Starfleet radio beacon, with the upper and lower cap removed.
Class specifications
None available

 


Orbital ship
General description
This type of small, probably shuttle-sized ships can be encountered in the orbit of Quarra.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
There were several small ships in orbit of Quarra, all of which seemed to be the design that had previously appeared as the Benthan coaxial warp prototype. Evidently they can't be the same design.
Class specifications
None available

 


Orbital station
General description
Several of these large space stations are orbiting the planet Quarra.
Known stations
No name given
  Annotations
The orbital station is an unchanged re-use of the Ba'neth station (and clearly can't be the same design). Curiously, the Ba'neth station probably has the same origin as the much smaller buoy (above), namely the Starfleet radio beacon. Only that there is hardly any similarity after the modifications.
Class specifications
None available

 


Scavenger ship
General description
This type of small ships is equipped with a tractor beam and may be utilized to lay subspace mines.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The Scavenger ship is a shameless re-use of parts of the quite prominent Breen ship, which were re-arranged in a now symmetrical fashion. The Quarra ship may be supposed to be considerably smaller too.
Class specifications
None available

 


Train system
General description
This is a ground transportation system on the planet Quarra.
Known vehicles
No name given
  Annotations
The train is most likely hovering above the ground, much like its cousin in Paris, France
Class specifications
None available

 

Rakosan


Fighter
General description
This type of fighter is outfitted with beam weapons, but only minimal shielding.
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
The Rakosan fighters were deployed in the unsuccessful attempt to destroy the Cardassian "Dreadnought" in VOY: "Dreadnought". The Rakosan vessels are of the same design as the Talaxian fighters type 1 that wouldn't show up until VOY: "Basics".
Class specifications
None available

 

Ramuran


Tracer ship
General description
This small cloakable ship type is used by Ramuran tracers. Their task is to pursue and capture Ramurans, who have decided to leave their xenophobic society.

Article: Redresses of the Ramuran Tracer Ship

Gallery: Delta Quadrant Ships, Part 1
Known ships
No name given
  Annotations
A couple of tracer ships appeared in VOY: "Unforgettable". Compared to Voyager, they looked like they were well below 50m long. The bridge set of the ship did not perfectly match the nose section of the ship, but was quite obviously supposed to be located there.
Class specifications
Length: approx. 40m
