Gallery: Starships of Dominion and Allies

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

A Jem'Hadar attack ship can be seen in the museum in LOW: "Veritas". The scene doesn't get the scale right because the ship looks like it is only shuttle-sized. Maybe it is a mock-up, not at full size?

Attack ship
Length: 95m
Crew complement: 42

 

Klingon


K't'inga

General description

Known ships

Annotations

A Klingon K't'inga can be seen in the museum in LOW: "Veritas". The scene doesn't get the scale right because the ship looks like it is at most 50m long. Maybe it is a mock-up, not at full size?

Vindicta's boarding pod

Vindicta's ship

General description

This is a ship type that, if it exists, is definitely of Klingon origin.

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

The ship that Mariner quickly creates for herself as "Vindicta" in LOW: "Crisis Point" is essentially a blend of a K't'inga and a BoP in a configuration that doesn't make much sense and that may or may not exist in reality.

Class specifications

None available

 

Pakled


Ship

Freighter

 


Upgraded ship

General description

After looking for things to make them go for many years, the Pakled have accumulated parts of Arkonian, Bajoran, Ferengi, Klingon, Romulan and unknown origin to build a formidable battleship.

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

One upgraded Pakled vessel attacks and destroys the USS Solvang in LOW: "No Small Parts". Two more vessels of a similar configuration appear in the course of the episode. We can see on a display how the design that started as a Mondor type was supplemented with parts of different origins. The not-so-familiar symbol on the screen is that of the Arkonians.

Class specifications

None available

 

Romulan


Bird-of-Prey

General description

The Bird-of-Prey was first sighted in 2266 when a starship of this type crossed the Neutral Zone and attacked the Earth Outposts. The ship was equipped with warp drive and armed with a powerful plasma energy weapon, and it had the ability to cloak. While cloaked, the Bird-of-Prey was not capable of firing but still warp-capable.
Article: Warp Drive and Romulan History

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

Shaxs and Rutherford steal this ship, which for some reason is fully operational and fueled up, from the (probably Vulcan) museum in LOW: "Veritas". The design from TOS: "Balance of Terror" was faithfully redrawn for Lower Decks, including the hull plates of the remastered version.

Class specifications

Length: 131m

 


D'deridex

General description

The Warbird of the D'deridex class is a huge starship used by the Romulans in the 24th century. The ship is twice as long as a Federation Galaxy class, with an advantage in fire power, but a lower maximum speed. The power source is an artificial quantum singularity.
Article: Appearances of the Romulan Warbird
Gallery: Romulan Starships

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

Warbirds appear in the opening credits, fighting the Borg, and in LOW: "Veritas" when three of the huge vessel show up next to the cloaked old Bird-of-Prey.

Tholian


Web spinner (TOS-R)

General description

The Tholian web spinner has a characteristic "three-leaved" port-starboard cross-section, and is tapered towards the front tip. The ship has an emitter at its aft end, allowing to "spin" a tractor field that would destroy a ship trapped inside.

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

A Tholian ship can be seen in the museum in LOW: "Veritas". Lower Decks follows the lines of the updated version for the remastered TOS, not the original one from the 1960s.

Class specifications

Length: approx. 15m

 

Unknown Affiliation


Generation ship

General description

This is a huge ancient generation ship of unknown origin. Its crew is mummified. The ship carries a molecular fluid that is capable of turning inorganic substances into compounds found on planets, probably to terraform the destination of the ship.

Known ships

No name given
 

Annotations

We can see this unique design in LOW: "Moist Vessel".

Class specifications

None available

 

Museum ship, visible outside the museum (probably on Vulcan) in LOW: "Veritas"
Besides two ships with a Federation look, we can spot one greenish design that could be alien (Romulan?). There is no clue whether this is an active vessel and parked on the landing pad or whether it is on display in the museum.

Shuttles on Tulgana IV, as seen on the surface and in the air in several regions of the planet in LOW: "Envoys"
The Type 6, Galileo 7 and the design inspired by the air tram are clearly Federation shuttles (or surplus shuttles sold by the Federation). There are several more shuttles without any design cues that may be alien.
