Ferengi D'Kora Marauder
- This page is about the playable ship. See D'Kora Class for the NPC vessel.
The Ferengi D'Kora Marauder is a Rear Admiral (Tier 5/Tier 5U) Cruiser. This ship is available to all playable factions as a drop from the [Ferengi Lock Box] or the [Infinity Lock Box]. Before unpacked, it can be traded via the exchange.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Due to a miscalculation on the Ferengi Futures Exchange in early 2409, Urata Manufacturing found itself with an excess of inventory and mounting debt. Desperate to stabilize cash flow, the company attempted to liquidize some of its remaining assets through quiet sales. When this didn't work, the leaders of the company cooked the books, shoving most of their remaining debt onto a little-known subsidiary that specialized in military ships. Then they spun that company, Sluga Military Technology, off as an independent manufacturer.
Burdened with Urata Manufacturing's old debts, Sluga seemed doomed to failure. Its stock price dropped so low that it was delisted off of the exchange. Most of the staff abandoned the company. Liquidators were expected any day. That's when the president of the company had a revelation.
Half of the quadrant is at war, but the Ferengi Alliance is neutral. It isn't buying more ships for its military. So why not find a way to get these ships to people who need them? As the Rules of Acquisition say, war is good for business!
Armed with an unstoppable attitude and a few convenient loopholes in Ferengi law, Sluga Military Technology has teamed up with Lobi Crystal Consortium (a wholly owned subsidiary of Quark Enterprises) to put new D'Kora Marauders in the hands of ship captains on the front lines.
Fully loaded and ready for battle, these D'Kora Marauders feature everything a captain could want. They boast exclusive access to onboard Dabo, Bank, Mail, Exchange, a Ferengi Trade Duty Officer contact as well as the [Console - Universal - Battle Module 3000]. This console is a powerful piece of technology that gives the ship the ability to fire an EMP Burst that will drain power from pursuing enemy ships. When fully engaged, the Battle Module 3000 will transform the D'Kora Marauder, opening several ports and conduits and improving the ship's weapons and engines. The EMP Burst is disabled, but a Swarm Missile System is revealed.
The D'Kora Marauder comes fully stocked for any privateer.
