Re: Ferengi Military

...And no convoy forces existed for any navy save for the Royal Navy of Great Britain (a large number of destroyers and light cruisers specifically for "colonial" and convoy use) and theoretically the USN (a very large number of semi-modern destroyers, but without a doctrinal basis for convoy or colonial operations). Commerce protection has been a military mission only on occasion, and achieved by a great variety of means, of which escorted convoy and sea superiority are the two most common and effective - but the Ferengi might skip both in favor of even more effective things, such as flags of neutrality or flags of alliance.
