Description[edit | edit source]

An acidic, silicon-based lifeform first found on Janus VI, Hortas are difficult to detect with tricorders and their hardened skin is resistant to phaser fire. They tunnel through solid stone by secreting a corrosive acid that can also be used as a weapon. Usually found in caves and underground caverns, Horta feed on the rocks and minerals in their natural habitat. Horta are sentient and have life cycles that extend for thousands of years.

This Horta is prepared to defend you and itself, but can only be called on a limited number of times. The air around its dilithium crystal shell crackles slightly with electricity caused by a built up of piezoelectric energy in its core.

Obtained[edit | edit source]

Obtained from opening [Special Requisition Pack - Ground Combat Pet] (which can be looted from a [Ferengi Lock Box]) as a Federation officer. KDF officers instead receive a [Combat Mugato].

Notes[edit | edit source]

Has 10 charges.
