        The WRAITH is the workhorse heavy cruiser of the Dominion 
Navy. Armed with 12 beam weapons (8 standard, 4 heavy), and 6 
compressed plasma missile launchers, the WRAITH is truly a nasty 
ship, given its relatively low displacement when compared to 
Starfleet Heavy Cruisers.  The maneuverability of the WRAITH is 
excellent, as is the sublight acceleration.

        The WRAITH sometimes operates alone, but also serves as 
screens for LICH or SPECTRE class ships (with accompanying PHANTOMs 
and ZOMBIEs).  In other cases, the WRAITH serves as the command ship 
of a small squadron; these squadrons typically exist of a WRAITH, 2-4
PHANTOMS, and about 5-8 ZOMBIES (it is estimated that 65% of the 
units consist of a WRAITH, 2 PHANTOMS and 5 ZOMBIES, with 30% 
consisting of a WRAITH, 3 PHANTOMS, and 6 ZOMBIES).

        Several of these squadrons are currently working in the areas
of the Gamma Quadrant near to the Herod II wormhole.  Starfleet has 
identified twenty-one such squadrons, and has determined routine 
patrol routes from monitoring their activities.  While most of these 
units do indeed participate in patrol, it is not entirely uncommon to
find these groups of ships participating in subjugation exercises.  
Somewhat more common is the use of these craft to safely escort 
imperial cargo ships transporting raw materials, finished products, 
foodstuffs, partially constructed technological devices, etc, from 
planets under Dominion control.  

        Intelligence agents estimate that the use of these craft in 
the escort of cargo ships is to ensure that a coordinated assault by 
the Federation or any other hostile Alpha/Beta Quadrant power would 
not result in the cutting off of vital supply lines and the possible 
blockading of these economically useful planets.

        Like all Dominion ships, a supply of biological weapons are 
carried on board.  The presence of these devices points to several 
other possibilities and theories which will be described in a future 
paper available to those with SECLAR 5 (highly classified) clearance 
or higher.

        The WRAITHs have been encountered by the USS NEBULA and the 
USS QUASAR on independent missions.  Further, these cruisers formed a
significant part of the Dominion fleet at SBOG.

        The WRAITH has proven itself to be a competent opponent in 
combat.  What is quite disturbing is the estimate that over 1000 of 
these vessels exist in the Dominion Navy.  This may be a reasonably 
reliable estimate, however, it is also possible that the Federation 
has come across phony data, provided to us in a Dominion 
disinformation campaign.  Further updates to this file will be made 
as more verified information becomes available.
