Wasn't the marauder based on the Star Cruiser? I'm fairly certain when it first went for testing on Tribble it still had all the Fed Transwarp abilities from the SC (which led to the KDF players killing all the NPCs on ESD, again) as it was pretty much a copy and paste. As far as I could tell, which was admittedly some time ago, it was all but identical in the base stats to the SC with only the recent hangar changes making it different.
