In starship classification, freighters or cargo ships were starship types designed to carry cargo, in much the same way transports carried passengers.

The Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual and the Star Trek Encyclopedia used the less common description "cargo carrier" for this class of starships.

The most noticeable feature of freighters were their large cargo bays. Furthermore, they were usually equipped with light armament to defend against pirates and oncoming asteroids.

Due to its proximity to the Cardassian Union and the Bajoran wormhole, many freighters docked at Deep Space 9. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)
