Axanar cargo ship (2151)

The Axanar cargo ship was a type of freighter used by the Axanar during the mid-22nd century. Crewed by as many as fifteen, a typical ship of this type was approximately ninety-two meters in length, and had a hull comprised of tritanium and disilicon polymers.

In early 2151, officers from the starship Enterprise NX-01 discovered and boarded one such vessel. After some trouble opening the airlock door, they discovered that unknown aliens had murdered the vessel's crew members and drained their bodies of triglobulin. The unknown aliens later returned in their vessel and attacked Enterprise, but were in turn destroyed by another Axanar vessel. (ENT: "Fight or Flight")

In the script of "Fight or Flight", the Axanar cargo vessel was described as "an extremely alien design: braided conduits run down the length of the hull, and it's impossible to tell the bow from the stern. The ship has a rusted-out, space-worn appearance." In the same script, the innards of the craft were described thus; "The ship's interior looks old and shows signs of wear and tear – corroded metal, dents and scoring on the bulkheads, etc."
A specific deleted scene from "Fight or Flight" (available in ENT Season 1 DVD and Blu-ray) is set on the bridge of the Axanar craft. A schematic there displays the ship, specifically highlighting the vehicle's power layout.
