The Boron Pleco is lacking in shielding, but has good speed and freight capacity making it a good choice of TM for non-combat roles.


One of the most recent ships to be commissioned from Kingdom End's shipyard, the Pleco military transport offers increased flexibility and capability in convoy protection and post-combat recovery operations.

Physical Characteristics[edit]

The Pleco is quite obviously a Boron Dolphin modified with four fighter bays. From the bays up, the two ships are completely identical. Unlike the Dolphin, it can carry a small number of weapons.


With its reduced shield capacity, the Pleco does not have as much defensive ability as many of the other TMs. However, it can fight off single interceptors and survive long enough to escape a fighter attack it cannot deal with. Its missile compatibility is much improved over some other TMs such as the Magnetar.




The Pleco is available at the Royal Boron Shipyards in Depths of Silence, Great Reef, Kingdom End, Lucky Planets, and Ocean of Fantasy.

Suggested Roles[edit]

The Pleco is not an ideal TM for use as a fighter tender, but does well in the armored freighter and trader roles.
