The Desara was built around a oval framework, similar to that of the D'deridex-class warbird. It was designed to carry five large cargo containers within the frame. The command hull was situated on top of the frame, projecting slightly forward to allow for easy docking.
The typical Desara was not equipped with any weapons due to restrictions on civilian vessels armed with military-grade weapons without a specific licence. However, it was not uncommon for ship captains to flout these laws and equip their ships with disruptors. (Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 5: Starships of the Romulan Star Empire)
