The Dactylus-class Bioship is a variant of the Nicor-class Bioship. Her main role is to focus energy from other Bioships to form an extremely powerful directed energy weapon. When the ship is ready to fire the Antiproton Focusing Array, it emits a frequency which summons eight Nicor-class drone ships that help establish an energy transfer with Dactylus and amplify its Weapon Power, forming a devastating energy bolt. Once the bolt has been fired, drone ships retreat back to Fluidic Space.
