These vessels were in use with the Xindi during the mid 2150s. [2] They served as general purpose vessels, capable of carrying out cargo hauling, with loads brought aboard via a large ventral hatch [1], scientific [3] or other functions. [2] Degra, the chief designer of the Xindi weapon project aimed at destroying Earth, used one of these ships as a general purpose transport. [2]

Although not nearly as well armed as the larger warships employed by the Xindi, on one occasion Degra was able to destroy a Xindi Reptilian warship by using his knowledge of the craft - which he had helped to design - to target a weak spot. [4]

Degra's ship appears to be the Xindi version of a Runabout, and has been pitched accordingly. As usual with Xindi ships we are forced to guess a lot, since we have little hard information on the ship but the real DITL would almost certainly know all about it.
