A convoy is a group of vehicles travelling together for mutual support and often with armed escorts for protection.

Following the First Battle of Deep Space 9 the Federation Council agreed to supply aid to the Cardassian Union, though the Cardassians had to supply the transports. Starfleet provided an escort, the USS Delaware, USS Swiftfire, USS Swiftsure, USS Venture and six other starships for the convoy up to the Cardassian border. The convoy was attacked by Klingon forces while it waited at the border for the Cardassian replacement escorts. The convoy lost at least one ship, the Comet Chaser. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "The Darkness Within")

In early 2374, the USS Enterprise-E led a task force from the Fifth Fleet and Klingon Third Battlegroup to destroy a Cardassian convoy that Starfleet suspected was transporting biogenic and metagenic weapons to use against Federation colonies and outposts. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Moral Actions")

The pirate group, Rough Necks raided a Federation convoy bound for Outpost Clarity in mid-2374 destroying two escorts and crippling a third. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "A Rough Time")

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Convoy is an Autobot and Maximal rank of leadership throughout many Japanese series. It is similar in many ways to the American rank of "Prime". The rank was named in honor of Convoy (the Japanese name for Optimus Prime).

In the Generation One continuity, an Autobot did not have to achieve a Convoy rank to be the Supreme Commander. The structured ranking of Convoys was not established until the era of the Beast Wars.

Unlike those in the American fiction with a rank of "Prime", a Convoy isn't the Supreme Commander of the Maximals as a whole (that job belongs to the Convoy Council). Virtually any high ranking Maximal General is a Convoy, and they are instead the Supreme Commander of a crew of Maximals. They typically possess their own Matrix, most often an Energon Matrix.

Whether it's a requirement of the rank or just bizarre coincidence, many Convoys share quite a few common design elements, generally based on the original Optimus Prime/Convoy.

Note

The name "Convoy" derives from "Battle Convoy", the Japanese name of Optimus Prime in Diaclone toyline, because the name "Optimus Prime" is difficult for Japanese kids to remember and pronounce. [1]
