Cleft Thorns are the hot-blooded level 250ish residents of eastern Warp 2 galaxies. They gather in teams of four, and battles with them can lead to disastrous results if surrounded. Not only do these AI hunt in groups, securing their prey with their tractor beams, but they can dish out large amounts of lethal heat damage with their Hell Fires and Great Immolations. With a fiery temperament, these ships are not to be trifled with.
As their appearance implies, they have hefty resistances against heat damage, and their Energy and Laser Diffusers help shrug off the usual pulse gun and laser blasts. However, they are susceptible to physical, radiation, surgical and mining damage, which may prove to be useful for players venturing into territory inhabited by these ships. Players may also find it rewarding to challenge Cleft Thorns, as they have a chance to drop their signature Hell Fires upon defeat.
