Not even a bounty hunter with an iron ass or a well equipped military vessel ever welcomes the sight of the Thargoid Battleship. There have been no known peaceful interactions with one of these ships; they always attack human vessels on sight. The characteristic octagonal shape is easy to visually identify from long ranges. The alternating red/green colour scheme is thought to indicate the ship's flight - there have been a few sightings of different colour schemes. The Thargoids have attempted to understand human language, but it is clear that they have some way to go - confused commanders have reported receiving messages such as "Eat violent sitcoms, poet!" and "Why did the groigan dance?".

Notable features

One of these can seriously cripple a Behemoth. In addition to a full complement of omnidirectional lasers, this giant bug-nest sports 4 thargoid plasmaforks. Often accompanied by a pair of Terrorizer Frigate escorts.
