The Ferengi operate many small trading ships, the Grok Light Trader being one of them. A medium ship, the Grok is large enough
to haul bulk cargo for long distances. Groks are easy prey for raiders, as their light weapons are inadequate for taking down
enemy ships before the Grok's shields are depleted.
Grok Light Traders are most often run by Ferengi who are "second sons" and, thus, did not inherit the family fortune. They
are forced to run low class, drudging cargo missions in order to earn the profit they so desire. Some more affluent operators
also use Groks for minor cargo routes or errands, but never would they themselves travel aboard such a craft.
