Raider / Interceptor
|Date Entered Service:||
Starfleet had received information on the Orion interceptor but there was no contact with these vessels until 2145 when two interceptors attacked the Enterprise the Orion interceptor was a small fast vessels utilized by the Orion Syndicate during the mid 22nd century. The interceptors were used to explore beyond the borders of syndicate territory looking for poorly defended ships and colonies near those borders. These ships had a pointed bow that has the appearance of the hooked beak of a raptor. This hooked bow section in combination of the two wings gives the ship an overall avian appearance.
The interceptors had four impulse engines with one mounted to the dorsal surface and the other three mounted on the dorsal surfaces of the hull. Warp speeds were achieved by means of the ships warp wings. These two large wings housed warp plates that allows the ship to cruise at warp 5 or up to warp seven for six hours. Three particle cannons and one torpedo launcher covered the forward firing arc and two particle cannons covered the aft firing arc to give the interceptor complete coverage from enemy attack. Interactions with the interceptors has shown that these ships the interceptor were equipped with deflector screens that were strong enough to provide defense against enemy attack. When required the Interceptors were the primary vessels used for the defense of syndicate territory from attack.
Orion interceptors were known to have transporters capable of transporting living beings. It was a common tactic for the Orions to attack a ship and beam several crew members into holding cells on the interceptors so they can be taken to a slave market and sold. During the time these ships were in operation they were most often spotted working in groups of two or more using the high speed and maneuverability of the ships along with their combined fire power to quickly overwhelm the target.
