Convoy 6 under attack

Convoy 6 was the sixth of seven convoys that the Cardassian Union gathered together in 2372 to transport medical supplies and relief workers to Pentath III, which had seen an outbreak of Rudellian plague. The convoy consisted of five Cardassian freighters.

The USS Defiant was assigned to protect the convoy from a possible Klingon attack, as the Cardassians did not have the available warships to protect it themselves.

En route to the Pentath system, Convoy 6 came under attack by an old K't'inga-class battle cruiser and a Bird-of-Prey. One of the ships drove the Defiant away from the convoy while the other attacked the convoy itself.

The Klingon Empire used the attack on Convoy 6 as part of a plan for Worf to be tried for destroying a civilian transport and extradited. (DS9: "Rules of Engagement")
