The Species 8472 mothership was a type of bioship used by Species 8472 in the 25th century.

History and specifications[edit | edit source]

Ships of this type were first encountered in the year 2409, when a number were launched into normal space at the Solanae Dyson Sphere. Such vessels became priority targets for the forces of Dyson Joint Command. (STO video game: Star Trek Online)

These vessels were grown from a larval state in Fluidic Space at special shipyards in the Undine home dimension. As a result of their growing number, Admiral Tuvok and 8472 Counter-Command authorized Operation: Viscous Cycle to destroy the shipyards and end the threat of the Planet Killers. (STO website: "Season 9 Dev Blog #17")

When Allied forces seized control of all Federation, Klingon and Romulan points in the Undine Battlezone of the Solanae Dyson Sphere, the Undine revealed a trio of planet killers. Vice Admiral Chal Rexx of the USS Cheron coordinated the Allied attack on the planet killers, which led to the defeat of the PK Alpha, PK Beta and PK Delta, forcing the Undine to retreat from the zone temporarily.
