The Kazon fighter was a small attack ship originally used by the Trabe. Many of them were seized by the Kazon after they overthrew the Trabe in 2346. (VOY: "Alliances")


Kazon fighters were first encountered by the USS Voyager in 2371 on Ocampa. They were controlled by the Kazon-Ogla and were used by First Maje Jabin in an attempt to stop Voyager from accessing the Caretaker's array. Another Ogla fighter was used by Kar to attack Commander Chakotay's shuttle. (VOY: "Caretaker", "Initiations")

In 2372, a fighter from the Trabe convoy was used in a failed assassination attempt on several Kazon first majes attending a conference on Sobras. Voyager fired three photon torpedoes at it, forcing it to disengage. (VOY: "Alliances")

The Kazon-Nistrim also employed the fighter design. One was stolen by Tom Paris to escape Culluh's raider, while another was used by Tierna as part of Seska's plot to lure Voyager into a trap. (VOY: "Investigations", "Basics, Part I")

Technical dataEdit

The fighter closely resembled the Kazon raider, but was approximately the size of a Federation shuttlecraft. It was composed of polyduranide alloy, duranium, magnesite, electroceramics, and a relatively large amount of carbon. It could be operated by a single person and was capable of atmospheric flight and landing on a planetary surface. (VOY: "Caretaker", "Initiations")

The ship was armed with at least three forward and one aft phaser emitters, as well as a ventral torpedo launcher. It was protected by shields. This class was significantly outmatched by a Federation Type 8 shuttlecraft. (VOY: "Caretaker", "Initiations")

Kazon raiders and carrier vessels carried fighters. (VOY: "Initiations", "Investigations")
