Description

The Vell-os Javelin is a Vell-os ship in Escape Velocity Nova.

"The Javelin embodies the hopes and desires of all the Vell-os people. A Javelin has been known to be created by very powerful T2's, but as a general rule, only T1's are capable of constructing one of these glorious works of art. A completed Javelin pulsates with the enormous mental energy of the Vell-os pilot as it travels. This mental construct is most often created by a Vell-os who is also capable of launching the devastating Autumn Petal attack and of disassociating their mind to create subsidiary vessels, making the Javelin one of the most powerful objects known to man. Only a few Javelins exist now, as it is rare for a Vell-os to be allowed to construct one." ― Javelin description
"When you ask the Vell-os leader where her ship is, she replies that she will only create it when necessary, to reduce the mental strain.
<i have no need of it now> she talks directly into your mind. <if i prepare over-much i will lose my edge you would not want that in combat>
You nod in agreement.
" ― Hiring a Javelin

Gameplay Analysis

"This is the "heavy duty" Vell-os ship. Powerful, fast, and deadly, just a few seconds of exposure to it's beams will cause you to be very dead very quickly. Combined with the three Darts on board, you should hope you don't have to face one down." ― EVula Survival Guide
While it may seem like "the Vell-os Javelin is among the best of the best in EV Nova," in reality this comes from the bonus that T1 and T2 confer on you. The bonuses will stack on other ships as well, so get something better as soon as you can. Normally very skilled T2s or T1s control this "ship."

A major drawback from utilizing the Vell-os abilities on other ships is the slower rate of shield- and fuel recovery. However, if you are able to capture a Polaris Raven or to purchase a Kestrel, the ultimate battle-ship might be just there...
