Courier was a starship classification used for a starship in a support role. Couriers are used for transporting passengers or classified documents in a secure and speedy manner. These ships are used by intelligence agencies for their covert missions. When not performing their primary function, couriers are used as surveyors. (ST roleplay module: Starships)

A courier is a type of starship that are designed primarily to transport important messages, personnel and items. They are built to operate at high warp speeds to allow for quick delivery. They tend to spartan, with the exception of vessels designed to ferry important dignitaries. (LUG RPG: Spacedock: The Advanced Starship and Construction Manual)

Klingon couriers tend to be more heavily armed then those used by other powers. However, this increased tactical package comes at a cost of speed. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 3: Ships of the Klingon Empire)

The Romulan Star Navy uses an usually high number of courier type of vessels due to their nigh-pathological need for secrecy. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 5: Starships of the Romulan Star Empire)

An Imperial courier
"These papers are from Central Command, sir."
―An Imperial courier

A courier was a person or a type of starship intended for delivery of urgent cargo and passengers and was thus built for speed rather than combat.

Characteristics

Courier ships could range in size from small, one- or two-man ships like those that ferried Yoshi Raph-Elan and B'dard Tone to their destinations, all the way up to larger ships like the YKL-37R Nova and BR-23 that could transport troops and bulk cargo. In addition, courier ships were often well-armed to provide security for their important shipments.

There were also courier droids that could deliver messages or small cargo shipments from point to point or across the galaxy if need be.

Sentients worked as couriers in certain circumstances.[1][2][3]
