In the first draft script of "Through the Looking Glass", this ship design was initially described as "a type of ship we've never encountered before. It looks like a raiding ship, sleek and built for combat. Like the fighters of the Mirror Sisko, it bears an Earth and broken chain emblem." The final draft of the same episode's teleplay changed the initial description to instead refer to the vessel as "a ship very similar to the Maquis raider we saw in the Voyager pilot." 
Ultimately, the Terran raider appeared visually identical to the Federation attack fighter except for the cockpit interior, which was a redress of the Danube-class runabout cockpit interior.
