from the Real World
point of view

Although the Widow is visually similar to the Tholian fighters encountered in the 23rd century by USS Defiant and USS Enterprise, it is unclear whether it is the same class or a technological descendant, so it has been listed separately.

The name of the class appears to refer to Earth's black widow spider, part of genus Latrodectus.
