Notes

Encountered by USS Voyager in the year 2372,1 this vessel was originally built by the Pralor. The Pralor were at war with the Cravic some time ago; both sides built large numbers of robots called Automated Units in order to do the fighting. When the two sides called a truce, they both decided to dismantle their robot armed forces. The Automated Units decided that their own builders had become a threat, and so turned on and destroyed them. The robots then continued the war between themselves according to their original programming.

The builders had anticipated the danger their creations posed, and as a result they designed each unit to be powered by an energy source which had a unique code built in. Since the robots were not able to do more than reproduce existing power sources, they were unable to replace themselves or expand their numbers. While this did not save the Pralor or Cravic, it did ensure that the robots would be unable to increase their strength significantly afterwards and pose a threat to other powers in the region.

When Voyager encountered a damaged Pralor Unit floating in space, they were able to repair and reactivate it. The unit subsequently abducted Voyagers chief engineer after a Pralor warship arrived, in an attempt to force her to create a general purpose power unit. When Voyager attempted a rescue the Pralor ship responded with a barrage of quantum resonance charges which overwhelmed the Starships shields within minutes. The enemy vessel proved to be very heavily armed and shielded, although Voyager was eventually successful in recovering Lieutenant Torres during a Cravic attack on the Pralor vessel. The Cravic robots used a ship which was almost identical to the Pralor vessel, although it appeared to use disruptor weapons rather than quantum charges.

Little is known about the capabilities of either the Pralor or Cravic vessels, and since Voyager is now far beyond their space it is unlikely that these ships will be encountered again.1

Comments

Seen in the second season Voyager episode "Prototype", little is known about the Pralor ship. Indeed, we don't even know for sure that the ship wasn't built by the robots themselves after the Pralor were wiped out. Nor do we have more than a general indication of the size of the ship - I counted about 11 rows of windows on the bottom section of the ship, plus gaps for anotherĀ  four or so. Using this, I've come to a length of about 350 metres but this can only be regarded as a very general guess - the ship could easily be twice that size.

Sources for the few facts that we do know : that the Pralor vessel fires quantum resonance charges is revealed by Chakotay when it opens up on Voyager. That the Kravic ship mounts disruptors comes from a line by Paris; when Tuvok tells him that the Cravic attack has opened up a hole in the Pralor shields, Paris says "now all I have to do is dodge a few disruptor blasts". That the ship has a lower top speed than Voyager is revealed by Pralor Automated Unit 6263 shortly after B'Elanna is abducted. The date of 2222 for the ship comes from PAU 3947, who states that he has been alive for 1,314,807 hours and 33 minutes - which works out to just about 150 years. That the ships predate this time is an assumption of my own.
