The Species 8472 battleship was a type of bioship used by Species 8472, and was one of their primary warships. First encountered by Starfleet in the Delta Quadrant by the crew of the Federation starship USS Voyager in the year 2373, during an opened conflict with the Borg Collective.

History and specificationsEdit

Species 8472 utilizes biological technology which seems to possess aspects of their own genetic structure. Bioships are genetically engineered and made for specific purposes. The battleship type of ships are capable of moving between normal space and their own fluidic space realm through the use of quantum singularities. It seems that they also do not require the standard power resources other civilizations use, but instead utilize transmutators that are capable of transforming any material into useful bio-matter which they use to gestate new organisms.

They were crewed by a single pilot and were capable of naturally travelling at warp speed. They were made of the same bio-matter as the pilots themselves and, as such, were resistant to assimilation by the Borg Collective. They were armed with a single powerful bio-pulse weapon that was capable of inflicting a great deal of damage on Borg vessels and had extremely powerful shielding, being more than strong enough to repel the Borgs' adaptive weaponry and assimilation. When a number of these small ships combine forces they can form a devastating planet killer. (VOY episodes: "Scorpion", "In the Flesh"; ST video game: Armada II)

The pilots had another form of weapon to unleash on their enemies which utilized their impressive telepathic abilities to unleash a wave of energy that drove the crew of enemy vessels mad. Infected enemy ships would attack anyone, even their former comrades and on certain occassions would lead to the crew activating the ships self destruct sequence.

Being one of the larger warships used by Species 8472, these organisms were not 'born' by active embryos but rather had to be drawn into the galaxy through a Fluidic Gate. (ST video game: Armada II)
