The Kar'ti is a Markab civilian transport.
In 2259, the Kar'ti left Septis with a crew complement of 203 for Babylon 5. Many of the Markab were fleeing a suspected outbreak of the Drafa Plague, however, unbeknownst to them, the plague was already aboard and the entire complement died. After being ten hours overdue to arrive at B5, the station's Zeta Squadron was sent to find the missing vessel in Sector 23. The squadron towed the vessel to the station.
