The Tholian Tarantula Dreadnought Cruiser is a Rear Admiral (Tier 6) Dreadnought Cruiser, available to all playable factions. This ship was originally introduced in the [Mirror Incursion Lock Box], but now more commonly found through the [Infinity Lock Box], and the exchange.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Tarantula is the largest and most formidable starship in the Tholian fleet, built by the reclusive crystalline entities to stand up to anything that the galaxy might throw at them. It is both durable and relatively agile for a ship of its class. It was built with versatility in mind; it is quite capable of performing nearly any role handily.
