Abronath

NotesImages
Universe Name : Kelvin Timeline
Weapon Name : Abronath1

An ancient weapon developed on the planet Altamid. The Abronath was capable of producing a black cloud which could consume any form of biological life. The device could affect a wide area - Krall expected to be able to use it to exterminate all life on the enormous Starbase Yorktown, millions of people in all.1

The Altamidians came to fear the destructive power of the Abronath so much that they broke it down into pieces and flung them into deep space, hoping they would never be reunited. After considerable searching, Krall was able to locate and retrieve on the of the pieces.1

The other fell into the hands of the Fibonan Republic, who in 2263 asked Captain James T. Kirk to offer the piece to their enemies, the Teenaxi. In the Fibonan culture the surrender of a weapon is considered a sign of truce, and they hoped this would encourage peace between the two species. The Teenaxi refused the offer, violently, and the Abronath was placed into storage on the Enterprise.1

Krall was subsequently able to lure the Enterprise to Altamid in an attempt to capture the Abronath piece. Although Captain Kirk placed it with Ensign Syl for safekeeping, Krall was able to find it and reunite the two parts. He used the Abronath to kill Ensign Syl, then took it to Starbase Yorktown to attack the base. Although he came very close to succeeding, the Enterprise officers were able to launch the device into space along with Krall, moments after he activated it. It consumed Krall's body as he died in space.1
