When you think Tholian’s you think to the time when the USS Enterprise in The Original series is stuck, suspended, trapped as a group of Tholian Meshweavers, spinning an energy spiders web to trapped its prey.. also goes for the Constitution class USS Defiant in the Mirror Universe Enterprise series..
The “Tholian Meshweaver” Tier five escort, is an interesting ship, in which is small and tough despite its smaller hulling rating base of 27,000 given that you up graded the Meshweaver to a T5-U the Hull rating increase to between 31,000 to 36,000 from levels fifty to sixty.. The Tholian Meshweaver Escort Class is essentially a cannon, turrets, torpedo ship, with beams instead of Cannons… of having four forward and three rear weapons consoles..
Despite its size, it has many advantages, it’s quick, in very much so like the Defiant, small but with a powerful heavy punch with plus fifteen in weapons power with a base turn on 17 degrees per second… the ship is clearly a Tactical and science ship with its four Tactical, three science and two engineering.. given it one LT. Commander Tactical, One Commander Tactical, One Lt. engineering, One Commander Science..
As it’s upgrade it comes with increase in Hull rating base, with an additional Tactical console… With its abilities packaging.. Precise weapons systems, tactical manoeuvring, enhanced weapons systems, devastating weaponry… with the Meshweaver it’s best to maximised on the science consoles has it provides that defensive shielding.. also the ship is a mirror lock box ship..
