The Zahzicih class Q-ship is a defensive starship.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

This vessel is superficially identical to a general trader, right down to lacking EM masking, stealth, or turrets. Reports from the Federation suggest that the Q-ship will act like any other member of a convoy unless attacked, then it will launch its fighters to englobe the threat, then intercept the enemy head-on. At the captain's whim, the opposition may be invited to surrender.

Q-ships both accompany convoys and work proactively, visiting dangerous areas to entice combat. There is provision to take some prisoners and to transport valuable items, but the ship cannot recover much contraband - the crew must hide large recovered cargos and direct other vessels to retrieve them.

Many corsairs don't believe that these ships exist. Since none of their own ever return from an engagement with the Zahzicih-class. And those who know of its existence don't advertise it, the outlaws remain in ignorance...
