Originally, the first draft script of "Through the Looking Glass", this ship design was initially described as "a type of ship we've never encountered before. It looks like a raiding ship, sleek and built for combat. Like the fighters of the Mirror Sisko, it bears an Earth and broken chain emblem."
The final draft of the same episode's teleplay changed the initial description to instead refer to the vessel as "a ship very similar to the Maquis raider we saw in the Voyager pilot." The later Terran raider, which was more akin to the scripted design here than the what appeared, was in turn scripted as a runabout, rather than what that design appeared as.
The script notes retained the "raider" designation, even referring to the interior sets under that moniker.
