We’re pleased to announce the arrival of our latest unlockable species: the Horta! Too long has their rocky past kept the Horta at the foot of the galactic table! This unusually-charismatic and agile species once hailed from the planet Janus VI. Since their humble beginnings as silicon eggs, the Horta have grown to become key members of the Federation.
Born tactical geniuses, the Horta will add a distinctive mark to any task force! These natural espionage agents can burrow through any wall or obstacle to instantly appear! Their cunning intellect allows the Horta to get the literal drop on their enemy!
Their distinctive tactical arsenal extends far beyond the phaser, disruptor, or even Bat'leth! Leap upon your enemies with your soft, cuddly rock body to take down foes with their new unique trait: Horttack!
The Horta isn't simply a stone-cold killing machine... their unique physiology makes them the perfect Science Officer to explore even the rockiest of planets. With both their geological analysis and unique Horta-corder, the Horta can both scan and eat mineral deposits to restore HP!
Finally, no starship is complete without a certified Horta Engineer. Through a complex digestive process, Hortas can turn ingested rocks into their unique form of Dilithium. In an emergency, Horta can give a temporary boost to their warp core's output by injecting raw Horta-Dilithium™.
Start your new career with Starfleet today - it'll totally rock!
