Notes

The Karemma are one of the major economic powers of the Dominion within the Gamma Quadrant; powerful enough to be allowed a certain degree of freedom, the Karemma have traded with many non Dominion powers. Deeply concerned with profit, they saw an advantage in the marketing opportunities provided by the discovery of the Bajoran Wormhole in 2369. Fearing open trade with the Federation, the Karemma traded covertly via Ferengi intermediaries, a relationship successful despite Ferengi business practices.

During this time the Bajorans purchased four Karemma vessels for use as general purpose cargo ships. More purchases were planned, but the incresaing hostilities between the Federation and the Dominion eventually put a halt to trade through the wormhole.

These vessels are medium sized, and of relatively conventional design; utilizing standard warp drive technology, the ships house a small matter/antimatter reactor system in the rear section of the ship. This feeds a pair of strut mounted fixed geometry warp nacelles which provide the ships motive power.

Forward of the engineering section is a set of six relatively large cargo bays fitted to hold almost any form of merchandise; this section takes up almost the entire centre section of the ship, one third of the main hull or over 110 metres in all. Forward of the cargo section is the primary hull. This section houses the navigational deflectors, a modest shield system, a small hangar deck, and the relatively spartan accommodation section.

The original ships were not equipped with offensive weapons of any kind, but the Bajorans have fitted their ships with a pair of plasma cannon. These ships will never be able to compete in the combat arena with the likes of a starship; nevertheless, at least one of these ships took part in the Bajoran blockade against Romulan forces in their system during the Dominion war.3

Comments

This ship was first seen as a Karemma vessel in DS9 "Starship Down". When models are re-used like this by the Bajorans, my assumption is that the Bajoran government was able to buy one of the ships rather than that the similarity is just co-incidence.

As with many Bajoran ships we have no name, but the real Daystrom Institute would surely know the name of Bajoran ships. Hence I have dubbed this the Pagh Class, after the Bajoran version of the soul.

I have given this ship virtually identical specs to the Karemma class vessel; changes are mostly related to the method of acquisition of the ship. I have added a couple of weak weapons, because these ships took part in the blockade of the Romulan base in "Shadows and Symbols". I have to assume that even Kira wouldn't throw unarmed ships into a situation like that.
