Notes

These vessels were used by the Xindi Reptilians in the mid 22nd century. Like the Insectoids, the Reptilians were considered to be one of the most warlike Xindi factions.4 Their ships are primarily designed for combat operations, and carry a heavy armament. They are also heavily armoured, but they do have a weakness in the power system which the Xindi Primate Degra helped to design, and hits in the correct place can incapacitate one of these vessels relatively easily.5

The ships were first encountered when they attacked the NX-01 to recover Rajiin, a Xindi agent who had been aboard on a covert mission to gather biometric data on the crew.6 Ships of this type visited the kemocite production facility whilst the NX-01 was there7, and were at the weapon proving ground which Captain Archer discovered.8 The NX-01 battled several Xindi ships, including Reptilian Warships, when it penetrated the Azati system in an attempt to destroy the final version of the Xindi Weapon4, and ships of this type battled Archer's ship during the theft of the Xindi weapon2 and it's subsequent journey to Earth. During this period the MACOs carried by the NX-01 raided a Reptilian warship to recover Ensign Sato from captivity.9 At Earth Commander Dolim's warship was successfully engaged by Shran's warship the Kumari.10

Comments

As with other Xindi ships, this is one of those entries with a great deal of speculation for a ship which we know relatively little about. As with all Xindi ships, there is no reason why the Federation would not end up with detailed information regarding the Reptilian Warship given that the Xindi themselves become Federation members eventually.

I've rated the Reptilian ship as being one of the more powerful Xindi ships, and about on a par with the upgraded NX class. We rarely see the NX battle one of these ships one on one - the closest we come is in The Forgotten, and Enterprise herself was in sorry shape by then so it's not really a fair comparison.

As with other Xindi ships, I went with Merculite rockets as the torpedo type weapon because these are common "ye olde weapons" in TNG times. Since nobody else seems to use them in the Enterprise era, I figured that the Xindi are at least a possible choice for them. Disruptors are also a guess, but are a very common weapon choice for non-Federation types.
