Only a bounty hunter with an iron ass or a well equipped military vessel ever welcomes the sight of the Thargoids. There have been no known peaceful interactions with one of their ships; they always attack human vessels on sight. The characteristic octagonal symetrical shape is easy to visually identify from long ranges. The alternating red/green colour scheme is thought have cultural significance - there have been unconfirmed sightings of variations on the colour scheme. The Thargoids have attempted to understand human language, but possibly only to taunt us - confused commanders have reported receiving messages such as "Eat grub, housemaid!" and "Are you my daddy?".

Notable features

Favored Royal offspring reaching the age of ascendency are often placed in command of a Terrorizer Frigate in lieu of outright infanticide. However this often only temporarily prevents the youngling from rebelling against it's parents' pheromonal controll. Thargoid do not tolerate independent adults in their vicinity and summarilly dispatch any that are vulnerable, as a youngling in a small frigate would be.

At least that is the current exomological interpretation of the occasional sighting of other thargoid ships attacking these smaller but clearly crewed vessels. "What Ship?" magazine has opined that the 'Terroriser' class ships are the thargoid equivalent of target-drones. Using these ships in combat agains humans either signifies the thargoid lack of regard for humanity or possibly an indication that we are winning the war.


The Terroriser Frigate is found in the Thargorn Threat OXP.
