Tholian ships were small starships of characteristic shape, utilized by the Tholian Assembly during the 23rd century. These vessels were armed with plasma torpedo-like torpedo weaponry. But their most powerful weapon was the so-called "Tholian web". This web was "woven" by two or more Tholian vessels around an enemy ship. This web could be used as a high power immobilization field/tractor beam to pull captured starships back to Tholian territory. As seen in the Star Trek the original series episode "The Tholian Web".
The fully illustrated magazine provides an in-depth profile of the Tholian Starship plus, articles on "Designing the Tholian Ship" and "Star Trek at the Smithsonian".
