“When talking just won’t cut it, the Missile Frigate brings an end to conflict and conversation in one fell swoop.”
The Missile Frigate’s statistics and build may bring to mind the Merchant Cruiser. Such similarities are not coincidental; the two ships are almost identical in their design and capability. The main difference lies in their combat skills. The Missile Frigate is unable to use many starship components in exchange for the ability to wield the ominous and deadly photon missile in its arsenal.
Photon missiles are massive and powerful weapons that carry with them multiple methods of destruction. At the apex of a detonation, the Photon Missile unleashes a powerful electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that disrupts and destroys many types of electronic equipment. The ensuing explosion is also powerful enough to shred through steel and melt lesser types of metal.
