A Thirdspace fighter is a small vessel controlled by the Thirdspace Aliens.
These ships are capable of equaling a Whitestar in firepower. The ships are small, fast, with weapons and defenses unlike anything ever seen. Starfuries could do practically nothing against them, and as quoted in the movie, "We have to hit them four times before they even notice." There is plenty of proof to that statement. The weapons systems were based around three coiled appendages that generated a surprisingly powerful plasma burst capable of crippling a Whitestar in just two shots and destroying a starfury like it was a bug on a windshield.

The Cherubim-class Invasion Frigates are the basic fleet ships of the Harbinger extinction armadas. It is the Cherbum which are the first Harbinger ships to arrive at a targed area. These aren't manned ships but automated constructs of the Harbingers. Each Cherubim scans the area with its massive lens-like eye for anything that stands in the way of the larger ships. Depending on what they find, the Cherubim will immediately attack to pave the way for the larger ships. It's primary weapon is the "hellfire lancet", a flaming projectile. Which like plasma weapons is both solid and gaseous, but as powerful as a neutron laser. Upon hitting a target, it both burns and impacts the target, in the process inflicting a tremendous level of damage.
- Crew: None

Behind the Scenes
