support courier

A smaller, otherwise unspecified class of retired Federation Starfleet ships. Aggrieved former Federation colonists in the Demilitarized Zone have modified one to carry and launch two or more photon torpedoes — an unusual configuration on a ship almost too small to hold them. Nonetheless, with a torpedo apiece the ship dispatches two over-armed Cardassian shuttlecraft, flown by those colonists, that had been attacking a Federation Merchant ship suspected of running arms to the Federation colonists.
