Baran's raider was a mercenary vessel utilized by Arctus Baran during his search for the Stone of Gol from 2369 to 2370. The ship was classified as "BC 01".

His vessel was encased in an energy-absorbing material (or sheath) that rendered the ship virtually undetectable to Federation long-range sensors. It was armed with dual forward disruptors and had a maximum velocity of warp 8.7.

In 2370, Baran and his group of marauders raided several ancient Vulcan archaeological sites throughout several systems between Vulcan and Romulus.

The ship was ultimately commandeered by Jean-Luc Picard and impounded by Vulcan authorities. (TNG: "Gambit, Part I", "Gambit, Part II")

Background information Edit

The computer voice of Baran's raider was provided by an unknown actress. For more information on this studio model, see DS9 studio models.

Although this vessel was not specified as a Theta-class starship in the two part episode, based on its numerous character similarities, the same generalized identification as a mercenary ship, and an unmodified model suggest it is a ship of that class.

The Star Trek Customizable Card Game gives this ship's name as Fortune with a class name of Virayllan.
