Baran's raider was a mercenary vessel utilized by Arctus Baran during his search for the Stone of Gol from 2369 to 2370. The ship was classified as "BC 01" by Starfleet Operations.
His vessel was encased in an
energy-absorbing material (or sheath) that rendered the ship virtually undetectable to Federation long-range sensors. It was armed with dual forward disruptors and had a maximum velocity of warp 8.7.
Beginning in late
2369 and continuing into early 2370, Baran and his group of mercenaries raided several ancient Romulan archaeological sites throughout several systems in the Taugan sector.
The ship was ultimately commandeered by
Jean-Luc Picard and impounded by Vulcan authorities. ( : " TNG ", " Gambit, Part I ")
