      Note: there's a small hidden room inside the ship; you can reach it with the transporter in the ceiling of the front opening. The ship was designed to work as an AI-driven drone. It's equipped with two beam weapons, each of 183,000 DPS (so since the AI fires all weapons at once, this ship can deal 366,000 DPS).

      Be sure to try out this interactive alien station which will launch five waves of such defense drones when you attack it:

        Thanks! - I named it "wasp", but actually you are right, it is more of a "beetle", because that is the class of insects which have hardened wing covers like the ones that can be oped/rotated on this ship :)
