Tholians are a crystalline species that once ruled the M81 Galaxy. When the Tholian Will was overthrown by the Seltorians, some small groups of Tholians fled to other galaxies. One small group of Tholians reached the Milky Way, where they took over the easternmost part of Klingon space, the part that originally bordered the Romulans. They called this the Tholian Holdfast. The Tholians (who considered carbon-based life to be lower than bacteria) enslaved Klingon colonies in the region and kept the Klingons at bay by their (at the time) superior technology. Their foes, the Seltorians, arrived in the Milky Way Galaxy later.
The Tholian ships seen earlier were all variations of the Patrol Corvette, a frigate sized ship designed as a heavy police unit. The Tholian Dyson Sphere that arrived in our galaxy was not fitted with a military shipyard, but it had facilities to maintain and produce police ships. In the middle of the General War, a squadron of Tholian military ships arrived from the M81 Galaxy. These were designed from the start as military warships and were quite capable in those roles.
After the General War ended, the Tholian Holdfast converted one of its two Neo-Tholian dreadnoughts into a space control ship with 12 Spider fighters and 6 Arachnid gunboats. The added shuttle bays and gunboats use external docking. The ship is a true carrier and a true gunboat tender. The theory was that the massive dreadnought could carry fighters (saving the fleet a carrier) and gunboats (saving the fleet a tender) allowing the fleet to have more combat ships within the command limit of the dreadnought.
The ship is available in a variety of materials. Ships are unpainted, use standard flight stands available from many sources, and, while designed for gaming, make fine display pieces.
