The Colonials flew an old-style class of liner relegated to support roles or adopted as cargo transports.

Following the destruction of the Twelve Colonies, however, at least one of these old vessels is transformed into a prison barge, where criminals were detained.

Prisoners on such a vessel are sometimes referred to (impolitely) as Barge Lice (TOS: "Baltar's Escape").
