    Description and History

    A vajra in the form of a small fighting ship, the Destroyer Vajra is a sand-colored spaceborne creature that carries numerous other vajra for long-distance interstellar transport. The Destoyer Vajra can travel vast distances across the galaxy utilizing a super-long range bio-fold navigation system. For battle, this vajra is armed with a single powerful bio-beam cannon and numerous point-defense beam guns and bio-micro missiles for defense. There are several hundred Destroyer Vajra in a space combat group.

    NOTE: The spacecraft of the Vajra civilization are a special breed of vajra organism. Although common vajra can easily travel through the void of outer-space, those with fold capability can only travel short distances. Therefore, the vajra breed much larger organisms with far more powerful fold quartz "towers" (fold quartz core/reactor?) to achieve long-distance space folds that allow free navigation over vast interstellar distances.
