The system runner is a small terran spacecraft. It is the only ship in its size class with warp-capability. The design is blocky and functional. Due to their small crew requirements, large amounts of cargo space, and fast engines, system runners are favored by black marketers for moving illegal cargo.[1]

Thousands have been built, and they have become the blueprint for ship systems. They are designed for fast and easy component swapping, making them quite durable.[2] Their interior includes a sickbay[3] and a number of weapons can be stored on board.[2]

System runners are armed, but the firepower does not compare to space fighters such as the Wraith.[1]
