The Spinner-class was a small starship with the typical tri-lateral symmetry of Tholian design. They were equipped with a type of torpedo weapon similar to a plasma torpedo, deflector shields and a Tholian web generator.
In the year 2268, the USS Enterprise encountered two Spinner-class ships under the command of Commander Loskene while responding to a distress call from the USS Defiant. The Tholian ships disabled the Enterprise and proceeded to spin a web around the Starfleet ship. (TOS episode: "The Tholian Web")
