The Kar'ti is a Markab civilian transport.
In 2259, the Kar'ti left the Markrab home world nine days prior with a crew complement of 203. The Kar'ti was ten hours overdue to arrive at Babylon 5. The Zeta Squadron was sent to find the missing vessel in Sector 23 with the entire complement dead of the Drafa Plague. The Kar'ti was towed to Babylon 5 by the starfuries.
