Krakta Penetrator
Description:

A mid-sized light combat vessel, the Krakta class of long range penetrator vessels were mass produced in the early half of the 22nd Century after the Ferengi first purchased warp technology. Krakta Penetrators were optimized for long range operations. The ship's cargo hold can hold enough supplies to allow a crew of four or five adventurous Ferengi to live comfortably for a year or more between re-supply. As such, the Krakta was designed so that, as the amount of supplies diminished, the spoils captured by such enterprising Ferengi could fill the emptying cargo holds. When the ship returned to a friendly port it could then sell off its newfound treasures at a profit while at the same time re-supplying the ship for another voyage.

Krakta Penetrators and other small ships like them fell out of favor with the Ferengi after the mid 2160's. This change in national focus would keep the Ferengi from expanding into new markets, instead cultivating existing lucrative markets. The historical effect of this decision would keep the Ferengi from making contact with many other prominent Alpha Quadrant races, most importantly the newly formed alliance known as the United Federation of Planets.
