What's with this vessel? Why r there humans onboard if its orion. And why does it look so much like a ferangi design? Federation 04:39, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
- Um, what makes you think it is an Orion vessel? Why can't humans be criminals? In addition, I'd say it looks more like a Cardassian design than a Ferengi one. --OuroborosCobra talk 05:31, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
Ship or shuttlecraft? Edit
From the way the Bird of Prey seems to dwarf the Merchantman, I often think that it must be a shuttlecraft. Not that it's easy to say how big the BoP is, but the Merchie is clearly a lot smaller - I would estimate 20m, which is about the size of a Danube-class or a Dash 8 airliner. From a real-world perspective, it was probably for dramatic impact (the mighty BoP blasting the little Merchie from the sky). So is this a ship or a shuttlecraft?--Indefatigable 00:36, December 30, 2009 (UTC)
- Well, runabouts like the Danubes don't seem to be treated as shuttlecraft in canon. --OuroborosCobra talk 01:50, December 30, 2009 (UTC)
Organian space? Edit
"The name of the Merchantman was taken from the script, which suggested that the ship was in Organian space when it was attacked and destroyed."
Huh? How does the name coming from the script suggest they were in Organian space? - Mitchz95 00:46, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
