Assimilator
Description:
The Borg Assimilator functions as a dedicated assault ship within the Borg Collective’s hierarchy of starships. A bizarre design, the Assimilator is built to endure concentrated weapons fire from potential opponents as it makes its way towards the target. Assimilators are commonly used to assist in the mass assimilation of planetary populations, but most starship captains would encounter them instead in their direct assault role when the Assimilator attempts to capture their ship. The Assimilator’s six energy draining tractor beams allow it unparalleled utility in wearing down enemy ships and successfully achieving tractor beam lock on the target. Once a tractor beam has been established, the Assimilator begins the process of beaming over wave after wave of drones to assimilate the ship’s crew and proceed with the complete assimilation of the starship.

Despite their ruggedness the Assimilator does have its own set of disadvantages. The ship must shut down much of its offensive weaponry in order to fully power their energy draining tractor beams, leaving it vulnerable to attack during its tractor beam attacks. The ship can also be crippled much easier than your typical cube.
