The Hur’q Vedcrid Hive Dreadnought Carrier serve as mobile hives carrying multiple generations of Hur’q progeny and their Drantzuli attendants. Although primarily built to harvest the necessary resources that will sustain the Hur’q, they can defend themselves with surprising efficiency and be a worthy adversary for other species’ warships. They are outfitted with Automated Defense Screens which, although somehow unreliable as a primary form of defense, can greatly improve their survivability when properly used. Additionally, they are equipped with a Commander Engineering/Command specialist seat which, when occupied by a Bridge Officer, can inspire all vessels around them; when the inspiration meter is full, they can use one of three powerful abilities that can turn the tide of battle!
