Description:
Due to their aquatic nature, the Xindi Aquatics are unable to pilot fighter-size craft. However, after one of the Romulan’s first strikes into Xindi space, it became obvious that their large motherships could benefit from the additional protection fighter craft could afford.

The Xindi Aquatics addressed this problem by creating a drone fighter craft: the Talusa K’aam. These heavy fighters were completely automated, but imbued with a sophisticated artificial intelligence that could extrapolate orders based on vague or partial commands given by Xindi Aquatic flight masters. The Xindi Aquatic’s slow reaction time made this level of self-guidance a mandatory requirement.

Unlike the Orieni, the Xindi Aquatics do not make use of static HK Controller systems. Instead, they use EW from their normal Sensors array to control their automated drone fighters. Each point of EW applied to Drone Control allows a Xindi Aquatic to control one squadron of drone fighters. Otherwise Xindi drone fighters should be handled like hunter-killers, minus the ramming component.
