The Baxial was a Talaxian Drexia-class freighter and salvage ship operated by Neelix in the late 24th century. (ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia, CCG reference: Holodeck Adventures, CCG reference: Captain's Log)
In 2371, Neelix took the Baxial on a salvage mission within a debris field located near the planet Ocampa, when the Federation starship USS Voyager approached and contacted Neelix about information regarding the Caretaker's array. Neelix agreed to help the Voyager crew locate some missing crew members and the Baxial was brought aboard the larger starship and refuelled. After locating the crew members, and locating his lover Kes, Neelix requested permission to remain aboard Voyager, with the Baxial safely stored in the ship's shuttlebay. (VOY episode & novelization: Caretaker)
Two years later, Neelix used the Baxial to transport a security team to the Akritirian prison satellite on a mission to break in and retrieve Lieutenant Tom Paris and Ensign Harry Kim, who had been incarcerated there. (VOY episode: "The Chute")
In 2377, Voyager was stranded in the Void anomaly. To escape, Captain Kathryn Janeway wanted to build an alliance. When Nygean commander Garon asked whether Janeway's alliance had any other members yet, Neelix proudly referred to himself and his ship as the first member. (VOY episode: "The Void")
A few months later, Neelix used the Baxial to protect another Talaxian ship whilst it planted force field emitters on an asteroid containing a Talaxian mining colony. Shortly after, Neelix and the Baxial departed Voyager and remained with the colony, New Talax. (VOY episode: "Homestead")
The Delta AllianceEdit
In early 2410, Rear Admiral Tuvok asked Ambassador Neelix to convince the Hazari to join the fledgling Delta Alliance. Neelix traveled with the Baxial to the Neles system, where he met Hazari representative Y'Dren. Y'Dren presented the Alliance with a list of demands directed at the Benthan Guard. Neelix directed an arriving Alpha Quadrant Alliance captain to contact the Benthan high justicar, who monitored the situation from a Benthan battleship nearby. High Justicar Mathan agreed to some of the terms, convincing the Hazari to join the Delta Alliance.
Part of the contract was that the fugitive criminal Captain N'Keden would be turned over to Benthan authorities. N'Keden's Hazari battleship was lured to the Neles system but he resisted arrest. The Baxial, the AQA vessel and Mathan's ship fought together to subdue N'Keden. He surrendered and was arrested by the Alliance, his ship and crew were spared.
