The largest and most powerful vessels in the Ferengi fleet, Starfleet first encountered a D'Kora class vessel in 2364 when the Enterprise-D intercepted a D'Kora which had recently stolen a power convertor from a Federation outpost. The D'Kora proved to be very nearly the equal of the Galaxy class in speed, [5] although the Galaxy class has significantly more firepower.

The D'Kora, like all Ferengi vessels, is primarily a trading ship. Its devotes most of its internal volume to cargo space, large areas styled after marketplaces, and strong room facilities to store commercial gains. The Ferengi typically operate these vessels beyond their own borders on long duration trading missions which mirror the Federations exploratory programmes.

The D'Kora first appeared in "The last Outpost", and at the time the Ferengi were supposed to be the big new baddies of Trek. It didn't turn out that way of course, and we haven't seen all that much of these ships since then so we don't know all that much about them. I've tried to make it a sort of Galaxy-equivalent, but where the Galaxy is a travelling science lab with weapons, I've made the D'Kora a travelling marketplace with weapons. I figure this is in line with Ferengi philosophy.
