File Description

Never, under any circumstances, trust a freighter. Really, could do dangerous things, like disable all your energy and systems (except life support, it's still a little bit nice) and that's exactly what the cooly named USS Blackhole does. Under the guise of a freighter (more precisely, the data miner from a Federation campaign mission) it disables all required systems of a nearby enemy rendering it completely useless. Apart from transporting and unless you're playing a game of 'how quickly can I transport people', I doubt you'll be able to get a lot out of your craft, should this be used against you.

The ship has no new model or textures, just sports its revised weapons and hull. It should be noted though, whilst it takes a long time to build and is moderately expensive, making it something of a mini-super-weapon, its hull is incredibly weak. Honestly, a battleship with enough range will destroy it before it has time to be disabled. Recommended use would be to have one in each of your fleet's, allowing you to maximise its effectiveness and not throw it open waiting to be shot down by anything with a decent range. Pushing this away though, it doesn't change the fact that this is a very powerful weapon, in the right hands. You could almost say it has similar effects to that of a black hole (well, not quite). Definitely a download.

Hey Trekies,

This is a simple Mod on the Federation Data Carrier.

I tested these files using a stock version with the Star Trek: Armada II Patch 1.1 Official Release.  

######################################################
The USS Blackhole is a classified ship that has the
technology to disable many vital systems on enemy ships.

While the affected range is limited, any enemy ship
within range will not be able to use their shields, 
weapons, engines, sensors, or special energy.
