The Terran raider was a type of small craft used during the late 24th century by the Terran Resistance Forces in the mirror universe against the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance, who referred to the vessel as a Rebel raider.


By 2372, most of the resistance forces' raiders were destroyed during a battle to capture Terok Nor, but Julian Bashir and Jadzia Dax took one of the remaining ships and managed to delay an incoming Alliance fleet long enough to allow the other rebels to complete construction of a new warship, the ISS Defiant.

Bashir's raider returned to join the Battle of Terok Nor, and helped cause serious damage to the Regent's flagship. (DS9: "Shattered Mirror")

Technical data

The ships were equipped with warp drive and armed with at least one phaser; possessing sufficient firepower to destroy a Klingon Bird-of-Prey.

Cockpit interior

The Terran raider had to pilot consoles that faced forward upon two large portholes. The cockpit had stations for up to four crewmembers. (DS9: "Shattered Mirror")

According to the script for "Shattered Mirror", this vessel was designed to be "a re-use of the runabout," however, it only had the cockpit of a runabout, with an exterior visually identical to the Federation attack fighter.
