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.
With their two-inch size, these Web Panels are designed for use with A Call to Arms: Star Fleet. When a Tholian ship uses the Lay Tholian Web! Special Action, for every two inches of movement, it leaves behind a Web Token. These Web Panels with their bases will serve nicely as the tokens. In the first picture, you can see an eight-inch long web. In A Call to Arms: Star Fleet, a Tholian web can have a maximum strength of four. At the top of each Web Panel there are four small holes where you can insert map pins (or any other small pin) to indicate the web’s strength. Want to strengthen your web? Have your ship do that and add another pin. If the web’s strength degrades, simply take out a pin.
There are eight web panels with bases in this group. That’s 16 inches of web your ships can lay!
The panels are available in a variety of materials. (Black Natural Versatile Plastic makes an awesome space background and you will only need to paint the raised grid.) The panels are unpainted. While designed for gaming, these would make an excellent background for Tholian ships on display.
