A 22nd century Rigelian freighter

See Rigelian freighter for a similarly-named ship type.

The Rigelian freighter was a type of freighter that served as the backbone of the Rigelian Trade Commission during the 22nd century.

In 2154, a group of Rigelians kidnapped Dr. Phlox from Earth aboard a Rigelian freighter. Their flight plan logged their destination as being the Proxima colony, however, its trajectory was, in fact, on a course near Klingon territory for a transfer-rendezvous. The freighter made the rendezvous with a Klingon starship, and was subsequently destroyed.

At the same time, the freighter's warp trail was being tracked by the Enterprise NX-01, which was several hours behind. When the Enterprise arrived at the rendezvous coordinates, it discovered the freighter had been destroyed, a number of Rigelian bodies were discovered in the debris. Due to a deception made on behalf of Section 31, it was initially believed that the ship was attacked by Orion raiders based on the weapons signatures, but its destruction was later determined to be caused by Klingon disruptors.
