Overview[edit | edit source]

Infectious Bio-Matter Swarm is a space ability that launches a bio-matter swarm at the targeted foes. It is generated by the [Console – Universal – Infectious Bio-Matter Generator], which is obtained with the Xindi-Insectoid Olaen Heavy Escort Carriers.

Basic Information[edit | edit source]

  • Profession: Any
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: Activating the ability launches a bio-matter swarm at the targeted foe, which will inflict steady damage as it corrodes their hull, while also inhibiting their movement. The swarming bio-matter generated by this incubator has a rudimentary animal-like level of intelligence. It has been engineered to seek out enemies in space combat, in an effort to degenerate their ships' hull capacity and maneuverability. It is loaded into a projectile casing for delivery, intended to impact against an enemy's hull with explosive force before delivering the biological payload.

    Portions of the bio-matter swarm will also occasionally dislodge from the targeted foe, and spread to seek out other enemy starships in the vicinity, inflicting the same negative effects on them.
