In DS9: Season 6, Episode 5: Favor the Bold.

What are these small ships which are moving in the foreground when the fleet departs for DS9?

They are indeed listed as Peregrine Class Fighters. It was the name given and being the only seen ships in canon beside the large Maquis raider. A lot of people play with an image and add it onto a "fanpost". Technical design list them as Peregrine Class as well. http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=83332 a posted Lcar image and in all data banks of Lcar! The name may be incorrect that @Thaddeus listed, but the image is Peregrine! http://www.kitsune.addr.com/SF-Conversions/Rifts-Trek-Ships/Federation_Peregrine_Warp_Fighter.htm.. Also, please note the Marquis were Ex-Federation officers and citizens fighting against the Federation and Cardassian due to reshaping of the DMZ. His images are of the episode where they used them as Freedom fighters. However, that is not their official name.


From Memory Alpha's article on the Freedom Attack Fighter:

Freedom attack fighter

The Federation attack fighter was a type of starship employed by Starfleet as an attack fighter during the Dominion War. (DS9: "Sacrifice of Angels")


The Maquis appropriated several of these ships and used them as attack fighters during their insurrection against the Cardassian Union. Prior to 2370 these ships were civilian Federation support couriers not used by Starfleet.

Fighters attacking the Dominion Fleet during Operation Return

Large numbers of these ships were used by Starfleet in the Dominion War. During Operation Return, eight successive waves of fighters were sent to attack the Cardassian ships of a Dominion fleet, hoping to provoke them into breaking formation and creating an opening for the Federation fleet. (DS9: "Sacrifice of Angels")

    Can you expand on this answer, and add a picture of the ship? Why do you think this is a better fit that Thaddeus' answer? Commented Apr 28, 2015 at 18:56
  • This is a link-only answer and not of any use.
