The Rakosan fighters were a type of light defensive ship fielded by the government of Rakosa V in the 2370s. These small fighters operated by pilots were equipped only with a single particle beam weapon, and no torpedoes at all.
The Rakosans proved no match for the Cardassian-built missile Dreadnought when it mistakenly attacked the system in 2372. The automated warship's plasma wave destroyed three fighters in the first volley, and its deflector shields protected it from all the damage the Rakosans could inflict. (VOY: "Dreadnought")
