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.
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.
