Husnock Update I
Notes : Data on the Husnock is extremely limited, as the Federation has had
no actual contact with this species and the Husnock are now extinct.
However, in 2366 a Husnock warship destroyed the Delta Rana IV colony by
obliterating the entire surface of the planet. Subsequently the USS
Enterprise encountered an image of a Husnock warship created by Kevin
Uxbridge, a Douwd who had been living on the colony under Human form.
Assuming that the warship was an accurate representation, the Husnock vessel
was approximately five times the mass of the Galaxy class Enterprise and
carried a heavy armament. The main weaponry comprises three very large
particle cannon which fire jacketed streams of positrons and antiprotons.
Although relatively low in actual energy output compared to a Federation
vessel, the composition of the particle beam proved highly effective against
standard shielding. The warship was able to bring down the shields of the
Enterprise with only a few seconds of firing at a 400 Gigawatt power level.
The Husnocks own shield system proved more than capable of withstanding
repeated Type 10 phaser and photon torpedo strikes without apparent damage.
At warp speed the image of the Husnock ship proved to be at least as fast as
the Enterprise, although again it is not known if the original vessel would
have this level of capability.
The Husnock themselves where described by Uxbridge as being 'a species of
hideous intelligence', who live only for aggression and destruction. After
his wife died during the Husnock attack on Delta Rana IV Kevin Uxbridge
retaliated by destroying their entire species, totalling some fifty billion
individuals. Given that the Husnock had apparently just encountered the edge
of Federation space, the Douwds actions almost certainly saved the
Federation from all-out warfare with them.
