In starship classification the term corsair refers to a type of ship (spaceship or starship) that is a small, maneuverable, lightly armed warship, smaller than a frigate but larger than a planetary patrol craft.

Before the advent of the 24th century's runabout type vessels and escorts, many Federation starbases were assigned their own corsairs for local space travel and defense. (Trekker's Alternity Galactopedia)
