The Qulash-class was a type of frigate used by the Elachi in the early 25th century. (STO missions: "Devil's Choice", "Sphere of Influence", "Elachi Alert")


Dozens of Qulash-class vessels were based out of Station Alpha, an Elachi base in subspace destroyed by a Romulan Republican Force strike team in 2409 using a hijacked S'golth-class escort dubbed Target Alpha. These vessels then took part in the Elachi invasion attempt against New Romulus, but were repulsed. (STO mission: "Devil's Choice")

More Qulash-class frigates attacked through the Iconian gateway discovered in the Jouret system late that year, but were destroyed by Obelisk 1, USS Enterprise, IKS Bortasqu', and RRW Lleiset. (STO mission: "Sphere of Influence")

Others were part of several waves of Elachi ships that attacked a Beta Quadrant task force attempting to shut down another Iconian gateway. (STO mission: "Elachi Alert")

Technical data[]

The Qulash-class was fast and maneuverable and typically attacked in groups of three. It had two additional variants designated "Qulash entangler frigates" and "Qulash corrupter frigates". (STO missions: "Devil's Choice", "Sphere of Influence", "Elachi Alert")

An additional variant dubbed an "Elachi harvester" attacked the science teams attempting to shut down an Iconian gateway, attempting to abduct them. (STO mission: "Elachi Alert")

Qulash-class vessels were sometimes carried aboard Sheshar-class dreadnoughts as fighter craft. (STO website: Elachi Sheshar Dreadnought Cruiser)


In the 25th century, the hull design of the Qulash-class frigates allowed its commanding officer to choose from different livery materials. These could be modified at shipyards. The material options included numbered Types and Upgrade. (STO - Awakening mission: "Mycelial Event") Qulash hull materials:

  • Elachi Type 1
  • Elachi Type 2 (default for this class)
  • Elachi Type 3
  • Upgrade

Furthermore, the installation of deflector shields from specific factions modified the hull appearance, including shields from the Reman Resistance, the Breen Confederacy and the Dominion. (STO missions: "Coliseum", "Cold Storage", "Boldly They Rode")
