The Cardassian occupation left the Bajorans without any shipbuilding ability of their own, and as a result their entire fleet is composed of whatever the provisional government could requisition from various returning refugee groups, plus a few vessels which were purchased directly by the government. Such vessels tend not to be the most advanced or capable available.

These ships are simple trading vessels, similar to many to be seen throughout this part of the galaxy. Several Bajoran refugee groups acquired vessels of this type during the occupation. Most fell into a state of considerable disrepair, some even losing the ability to travel at warp speeds altogether. After the occupation the provisional government reclaimed and refitted a dozen of the ships from returning refugee groups, usually trading land allocations for them. The ships carried out various cargo transportation roles for the provisional government.

This Bajoran ship was first seen in TNGs "Ensign Ro". It was called an Antares class in that episode, though it is markedly different from other Antares class ships we have seen. The ship was limited to Impulse speed, but this would be a highly impractical proposition for any ship given the sort of distances involved in space travel, so I have assumed that the ships normally have warp drive but the one owned by the Bajorans did not because it was so badly maintained.

The model is a modification the Jovis from TNGs "The Most Toys". The two are different enough to be considered separate classes, but I would imagine that both would be built by the same source company or species. I have also used this as an excuse to give the ship the same general capabilities as Fajo's ship - a shuttle bay, and a speed of Warp 3.

Like many of the Bajoran ships, we do not know a class name but it is unlikely that the real Daystrom institute would not know such details. I have named all these ships after something distinctly Bajoran - in this case the Kendra Valley Massacre which took place during the Cardassian Occupation.
