Prime Directive - Telemachus
Nausicaan raiders were vessel-types employed by Nausicaan pirates during the mid-22nd century to early-23rd century for raiding freighter routes.
These vessels are armed with forward and aft plasma cannons and possessed primitive shields. Although their weapons were considered formidable to a Y class freighter, Nausicaan raiders were outmatched by NX-class starships, whose spatial torpedoes were capable of piercing Nausicaan shields.
In recent years, this class of vessel has made a resurgence in popularity among the Nausicaans and have had a corresponding upgrade in capabilities.
