D'kora Class

The Ferengi 'D'kora Class starship (also sometimes referred to as a Ferengi Marauder, Ferengi warship or Ferengi trader) was a type of vessel operated by the Ferengi Alliance in the 24th century.

The D'kora was an advanced vessel, comparable in power to a Federation Galaxy Class starship and almost as fast. (TNG: "The Last Outpost", "Ménage à Troi")

History

Ships of this type were first encountered by Starfleet in 2364, when a ship commanded by DaiMon Tarr stole a T-9 energy converter from an unmanned outpost on Gamma Tauri IV. (TNG: "The Last Outpost")

Notes

  • The term "D'kora-class" was first associated with the Ferengi Marauder in TNG: "Force of Nature". The Ferengi Marauder was originally designed by Andrew Probert and built by Greg Jein. It first appeared in "The Last Outpost", where is it referenced in the script as being a "a strange horseshoe crab-like design, a bit smaller than the Enterprise."
  • The ship has the capability to "stretch" its neck section, but this is only seen in "The Last Outpost" and, perhaps coincidentally, when ship-to-ship visual communications are engaged.
