Strider Torpedo Frigate
Description:
The Orions commonly mount heavier weapons in the weapons pods of their Wanderer Blockade Runners. Coming into possession of such improved weapons, however, is sometimes the most difficult aspect of performing such upgrades.

During the 2270's, several Orions operators managed to secure a shipment of full fledged Photon Torpedoes. Many rumors abound as to where they came into such equipment. Some claim that the Federation sold them to government sponsored privateers operating on their borders; others believe that a Klingon family attempted to secure the loyalty of several Orion magnates in a failed coup attempt. No matter the reason, several upgraded Wanderers began appearing in and around Orion trade routes. Designated Strider Torpedo Frigates by Federation forces that encountered them in 2278, this design was found to be a potent opponent despite its weaker shields.
