Michael has owned Three Ships
- SS Carbuncle -- A "J" class free trader that was abandoned on the moon after he was attacked by pirates and rescued by Starfleet, and incidentally the incident that broke his relationship with his daughter Li'ira. Li'ira has since recovered the vessel and it is part of the "Minnow" missions to the Trantorian Empire. As part of that mission she has been rebuilt in a fashion Micheal could never dream of.
- SS Ruby Tuesday -- Destroyed in a subspace rift. While personnel from DS-13 were able to save the hull of the ship and the passengers and crew (The O'Keefe family) the systems of the ship were destroyed. (STOM Goodbye Ruby Tuesday) Micheal was not insured and had to dead head back to Earth, destitute.
- SS Diamond Daze -- "M" class free trader. Destroyed by Michael's careless attention to engineering. In the process of being rescued from Orion Pirates by the USS Dannon the ship blew itself up when the Dannon tried to take remote control after rescuing the crew. Interviews with Micheal later established his use of a bootleg military control program ('Twas a wonder it did a much better job, and cut me fuel costs.) Origin unknown it destroyed the vessel rather that "be taken". This time his wife had thrown a fit about maintaining their insurance and Micheal was not rendered destitute.
