The Kazon raider was a medium-sized starship originally used by the Trabe. These vessels were later seized and used by the Kazon, following their uprising against the Trabe. (VOY: "Alliances")

Technologically limited and outmatched by the Federation's Intrepid-class starship – indeed, on one occasion a raider was destroyed by a Federation shuttlecraft, albeit one that took them by surprise – an engagement with seven to one odds, in favor of the Kazon, against an Intrepid-class was considered "tactically unwise." The armaments aboard this class of vessel included two forward energy weapons and photonic charges with variable yields, and were protected with shields. (VOY: "Investigations", "Maneuvers") The raider could be modified to employ a type of masking circuitry that could affect enemy sensors. (VOY: "State of Flux") They were also known to carry a small complement of Kazon fighters. (VOY: "Investigations")

The Kazon raider was designed by Dan Curry. (citation needededit) The studio model was built by WonderWorks Inc.. As one of the most junior employees at WonderWorks, Robert Bonchune was sent to deliver the miniature to the Star Trek motion control stage at Image G. There, he handed the model over to Curry, who wanted to make improvements to it. Curry therefore asked Bonchune to stay behind to help him distress the painting. Bonchune was thrilled to help paint the ship but figured he would likely have no more involvement with Star Trek, though fate proved otherwise.
