Orion Pirate Vessel

Orion pirate vessel. Large red starship design used by the Orions in their quest for dilithium and other precious materials. An Orion ship of this design attacked the S.S. Huron and robbed the freighter of its cargo of dilithium and medicinal supplies in early 2270. The Orion government had full knowledge of the piracy carried out by their ships, but no proof existed as the Orion crews would commit suicide and destroy their ships at the first sign of being found out. Proof was finally acquired on stardate 6334.1 when Captain James Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise captured an Orion pirate vessel with crew intact. ("The Pirates of Orion").
