Aft view of an Orion Barge

The Orion Barge also known as the Slave Barge was a transport that was used by members of the Orion Syndicate to move cargo and slaves throughout Syndicate space. Unlike the Scout and Interceptor that were operated by the Syndicate the barge was a purely civilian ship and the hulls of these ships were often decorated with elaborate designs that can be used to identify the owner of the barge. Orions who owned a barge were know to use them for a wide variety of activities from locating and harvesting valuable materials on unpopulated or underpopulated planets to carrying out acts of piracy in the shipping lanes beyond the borders of the Syndicate.

The barge was equipped with a single large impulse engine located at the Dorsal Aft surface of the hull that could propel the ship up to one third the speed of light. Warp travel was made possible by two warp nacelles that flanked the impulse engine. These barges have been observed travailing at warp 5.5 but all data indicates that these ships could reach and maintain a speed of warp six for no more than five hours.

Orion Barge firing weapons

For their size the barge was was heavily armed with seven weapons turrets with each turret housing twin particle cannons. Six of the turrets were dorsally mounted and the seventh was ventrally mounted to the outer hull. Along with the particle cannon turrets the barges were equipped with two torpedo launchers with one covering the forward firing arc and the other covered the aft firing arc.

The sensor systems on the barges were capable of making detailed scans of a planets surface and below to search for valuable materials that could be removed and sold. To support these harvesting activities the Orion Barge was capable of making planetary landings and there were two large hatches on the ventral surface of the hull that the landing gear would extend from during landing procedures.

Located on the ventral side of the ships hull hear the ship stern there was a single grappling unit that could be used to tow another ship or other type of salvage. This grappler was also used to lock onto a target ship during pirate activities.
