The Angosian ship is a simple sub-warp transport vessel.1 It consists of three main sections. A command module situated at the front of the ship, a drive unit at the rear of the vessel and in-between a replaceable mission module. Various modules are available fulfilling both cargo and passenger transport capabilities. A further module can also be used to create a secure prisoner transport craft.

On a visit to Angosia III the USS Enterprise-D was requested to assist in the capture of a criminal who had broken out of the Lunar V penal colony and stolen one such ship. Escaping from the Enterprise the ship went behind and asteroid and the pilot detached it's drive unit and crashed the remainder of the ship. When it was discovered that he had remained on the drive section, the fugitive then aimed the remains of the ship at them. In response the Enterprise raised it's shields and were able to safely deflect the ship without causing any damage. This was yet another tactic design to deflect attention from a small escape pod launched from what remained of the ship. However, Lieutenant Commander Data was able to predict this action and captured the prisoner.1

The Angosian ship was first seen in the TNG episode 'The Hunted'. It was described as a 'transport vessel' with 'no warp drive and minimal weaponry'. It was recorded as reaching a speed of 0.02 impulse. In the episode we saw it had a detachable drive section and was able to launch an escape pod.
