Dreadnought (VOY-134)
Dreadnought (VOY-134)

Maquis designation for the Cardassian ATR-4107 tactical missile that was launched in 2370. The weapon carried a charge of 1000 kilograms of matter and an equal amount of antimatter, enough explosive power to destroy a small moon. Dreadnought was controlled by a sophisticated computer system that was highly adaptable, capable of evasion, and equipped with advanced defensive weaponry. Dreadnought was originally programmed to destroy a Maquis munitions base on the planetoid Alpha 441 in the Badlands, but failed to detonate at its target and was subsequently captured by Maquis member B’Elanna Torres, who reprogrammed it to destroy a Cardassian fuel depot on planet Aschelan V. One day after Dreadnought was launched toward Aschelon V, it was captured by the Caretaker and brought to the Delta Quadrant. In this unfamiliar environment, Dreadnought’s control computer locked onto planet Rakosa V, threatening Rakosa’s two million inhabitants. Torres, who at that point was aboard the U.S.S. Voyager NCC-74656, intercepted Dreadnought in early 2372 and was successful in destroying it before it could reach Rakosa V.[1]
