Knowing that the Ferengi starship's sensors were limited to light speed, Picard engaged his starship's warp drive for a brief second, momentarily making it appear to the Ferengi crew that the Stargazer was suddenly in two places at once.
In the first draft script of "The Battle", this ship was called the "Koron".
Though this ship and its class were ultimately never specifically identified in either episode in which it was referenced, this ship was depicted in the Star Trek Omnipedia media simulation of "the Picard Maneuver" with a graphic of a D'Kora-class Marauder. However, it is also reasonable to believe – because Picard did not seem to recognize the Marauder encountered in "The Last Outpost", nor did he ever make the association between the vessel he encountered in the Battle of Maxia and the Marauder encountered in "The Battle" – that this vessel is of an earlier or altogether different design.
The novelThe Buried Age gives the name of the ship as the "Seventy-Fifth Rule" (referring to the 75th Rule of Acquisition: "Home is where the heart is, but the stars are made of latinum"), and classifies it as a Raider-class scout ship.
When Quark was tasked with returning to Ferenginar in 2371, he felt he would only be gone for a short time, and believed he was simply going there to "get my mother to confess to her crimes and I'll be on the next transport back to the station." (DS9: "Family Business")
