Ek’qku Defense Craft (Insectoid)
Ek’qku Defense Craft are atmospheric-capable warships that are also capable of submersible service and combat. The Xindi Insectoids originated the Ek’qku design, though they are often found in the employ of the Xindi Aquatics on their oceanic colonial holdings.

This small fighter craft is armed with a single particle beam and torpedo launcher. They are not major threats to most enemy warships, though they can be a nuisance.

Historians will note the similarity between the Ek’qku and Nausicaan pirates ships of the same period. It is believed that the Nausicaans based their raider design on abandoned Xindi Ek’qkus found adrift on the edge of the Delphic Expanse, though this connection has never been fully confirmed.
