Class J Class
- Class and Type: Class J-class Cargo Carrier
- Commissioning Date: 2230
Also known as a "Class IV Stardrive vessel," the Class J was a typical passenger and/or cargo transport of the sort common throughout Federation space and nearby regions during the 2200s. It consisted of a central body with a chisel-shaped forward end, two downward-curving nacelle pylons amidships, and a bridge mounted forward dorsal. Its lack of weapons, poor shields, slow speed, and valuable cargoes often made it a target for Orion pirates and other criminals.
