The Ferrengi Scorpion is the most powerful Ferrengi ship in the fictional TradeWars 2002 universe. It cannot be bought at Stardock.

Ferrengi Overlord[]

There is usually only one Scorpion in any given TW2002 universe. The ship, named Venom, is piloted by the Ferrengi Overlord, Kvir Rylach. He randomly wanders the galaxy, raiding players' sectors and "disrupting" fighters and mines by converting them to Ferrengi fighters and mines.

Capturing the Scorpion[]

Rumors have circulated that it is possible to capture the Scorpion with the Ferrengi Dreadnaught, although others claim that it is completely impossible to capture the Scorpion. Any photon missile attack against it will backfire against the player, causing him to lose all his turns. Apparently the only way to capture the Scorpion is track him down by laying a large field of toll fighters, rushing to his location when he disrupts a fighter, using a fully-loaded Interdictor Cruiser to prevent the ship from leaving, and then having a teammate attack with a Dreadnaught.

But those are just rumors, upon using the gold ship editor to replace my ship with a ferrengi scorpion I logged into another account and started testing. Firstly, photon missiles I launched at myself from the other account did work as expected and disabled the scorpion. Secondly, I was able to damage the scorpion using any ship, it is incredibly powerful though and has more than twice the fighters of an imperial starship so it wont go down easily. Third, I have seen on other sites that this ship does not require a fighter in a sector to safely t-warp, this is also false and trying it will destroy your ship if there is anything in the sector. Fourth, I could not change enemy fighters and mines to my own. This behavior may be different when the ship is piloted by the ferrengi but I could not find one.
