The Xhosa was an Antares-class freighter that was operated by Kasidy Yates in the 2370s. (ST reference: Star Trek Chronology, ST CCG: Call to Arms)


In 2372, the Xhosa left Deep Space 9 and was followed by IKS M'Char, a Klingon bird-of-prey. Twelve Klingons were killed when the Xhosa went to warp just as they were beaming over, having been exposed to space. Kaybok had been ordered to place an explosive aboard, but his crew were unable to do so. (DS9 novelization: The Way of the Warrior)

The M'Char made preparations to board the Xhosa but retreated when the USS Defiant threatened to fire on the Klingon ship. (DS9 episode: "The Way of the Warrior")

Later that year, the Xhosa began running medical supplies to the Maquis, meeting their ships in the Badlands. Benjamin Sisko commanded the Defiant when following the Xhosa on one of its runs to meet the Maquis, but learned Michael Eddington had used Sisko's involvement with Yates to get him off DS9 so the Maquis could steal several industrial replicators. (DS9 episode: "For the Cause")

In 2376, Yates used the Xhosa in the evacuation of Europa Nova, specifically the city of Chieti, and brought the Europani to Deep Space 9. (DS9 novel: Demons of Air and Darkness)

In preparation for when Yates would give birth and in case of transporter unavailability, Nog modified an escape pod from the Xhosa and placed it behind her house in Kendra Province for her to use as a last resort. (DS9 novel: Twilight)
