These ships were apparently larger, more capable counterparts to the Suliban Cell Ships in use during the early 2150s. Very little is known about these craft as no example has ever been examined at close range, unlike the Cell Ships.3 It is known that Module ships can be combined to form larger vessels or that they can be joined to Helix stations.1 They carry a tractor beam, are capable of warp speeds at least equal to that of an NX class, and are probably armed with particle weapons and fitted with cloaking devices.4

We know relatively little of the Module ship. Even the name is something I have made up myself to distinguish it from the canonically-named Cell ship.

The Module ship is larger than the Cell ship, and therefore presumably more capable. Yet it doesn't seem to be a match for the NX class one on one, to judge from the way that Enterprise blew one away in Shockwave part II. Perhaps the Module ship has better accommodation, more range, etc?

The connect points on the ship indicate that it also can be combined into both larger vessels and Helixes, and in fact we have seen at least one such vessel in Future Tense. That the ships have a tractor beam is seen in Shockwave part II when they tow Enterprise away from the Helix.
