These simple vessels were equipped with solar-wind sails, which harnessed tachyon eddies, thus allowing these ships to travel space at warp speeds, without the use of warp drives. These ships were also called "lightships." Commander Sisko constructed his own lightship and took his son, Jake Sisko, along for the maiden voyage.
