|“||That is definitely bigger than the last one.||”|
—David Levinson seeing the Harvester Mothership for the first time.
The Harvester Mothership is a massive spaceship used to strip planets of their resources, and commanded by a Harvester Queen. One mothership was used by a Harvester swarm and their Queen to attack Earth during the War of 2016.
The mothership moves at a steady pace and is surprisingly fast for its size. It displays powerful deflector shields to push away objects including the debris of the 1996 mothership and fighters.
Combat Capabilities Edit
A Harvester Mothership's weapons include powerful energy cannons that can be arced into several beams that are able to shoot multiple targets simultaneously. These gigantic ships also have a very powerful protective shield that could withstand a human-made energy cannon, as demonstrated in the destruction of the ESD Moon Base.
Outward appearance Edit
Each supreme commander has a minor mothership that is attached to the center of the Harvester Mothership, where the Queen lives. Its size is far larger than a single City destroyer, but the ship designs are similar. Harvester Motherships are heavily defended by plasma cannons, and swarms of Fighters.
Inner structure Edit
The interior is vast. It also has some blue mist throughout the interior, but not as much as in Colony ships, for an unknown reason. The ground acts as some kind of agricultural system with an unknown species of crops growing, and whether it's native to the Harvesters' home or stolen from another world the Harvesters took over is unknown. It is possible, however, that they use these crops to generate oxygen for Harvester Motherships, and maybe to provide food.
The Harvester Mothership is first seen in the War of 2016. It first arrives over the Moon, causing the ESD Moon Base to fire the moon cannon on the ship. However, the attack is deflected by the Mothership's shields. In response, the Mothership shoots an energy burst that destroyed the Moon Base. The Mothership continued its approach to Earth and easily destroying the Orbital Defense System. Due to the Mothership's massive size and gravity, it causes to uproot entire cities from Asia and the Middle East until it lands over the North Atlantic Ocean and causing the lifted structures and debris to rained over Europe. Its landing annihilates the entire United States East Coast and much of northwestern Europe. The Mothership then proceed to harvest the Earth's molten core.
The Earth Space Defense launched an ill-fated assault on the Mothership in attempt to eliminate the Harvester Queen. Several bombers armed with cold fusion bombs entered the ship and were disabled by an electromagnetic pulse emitted by the aliens, and the bombers were neutralized by drones. However, the ESD managed to lure the Queen away from the Mothership after tricking her into following the location of the Sphere, and managed to killer her. The death of the Queen caused the Mothership to cease its drilling and retreating from Earth.
