Not even a bounty hunter with an iron ass or even a well equipped military vessel ever welcomes the sight of the Thargoid Cruiser. 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 have cultural significance - prehaps hierachical markings - 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 "Buy Foodblenders, happy camper!" and "Did I do that?".

Notable features

Any single human ship short of a Behemoth class vessel is no match for these ships. Often accompanied by a single of Terrorizer Frigate escort.
