Maquis fighter was a type of small and maneuverable shuttle used by the Federation and later commonly utilized by the Maquis as a fighter craft in their battle against the Cardassians.
2370, Lieutenant Ro Laren used one of these ships to mount a staged "raid" against the USS in order to obtain medical supplies for her Maquis cell.
The same ship was later used by Ro and
Commander Riker during an aborted trap set by Starfleet to raid a Yridian convoy. ( : " TNG ")
Technical data Edit

Interior design Edit

This type of ship had a shuttle-size cockpit with seating for two, with a central display monitor between the two station.
The aft section of the ship the aft section contained the ship's
cargo hold separated by a doorway, with an additional doorway beyond. ( : " TNG ")
The cockpit and hold were a reuse of the shuttle design that originally appeared as the Nenebek . The outline of same ship is visible on the Maquis ship's exterior.

Background information Edit
Although the Maquis fighter and the
Maquis raider shared the same basic design, the raider is somewhat larger than the Maqis fighter, with an altered cockpit and different detailing, since the interior set was represented by a redress of runabout cockpit rather than a redress of the Danube-class shuttle interior.
For further information on the
studio model that was used as both the fighter and the raider, please see: Maquis fighter model.
