The Heralds, Children of Iconia

The Heralds, Children of Iconia -

Al “Captain Geko” Rivera has taken to the Star Trek Online site to write an extensive article to give players taking part in the Delta Recruitment event a good look at one of the most dangerous opponents coming with the Iconian invasion. The Heralds are not Iconians, but are native to the planet and share common ancestry. They are valued members of Iconian society and serve as personal guards and stewards to high ranking members.

Iconians are not a prolifically present species but they are well guarded by the Heralds who are present in much greater numbers. With billions bred for the soul purpose of building an army, the Heralds are experts in both ground and air combat.

Among the Herald forces are:

Constructs – The Constructs aren’t actually Heralds. They are automatons held together with sophisticated gravitational forces. When defeated, they fall apart – like a suit of armor without a knight. Constructs have been seen merging together and even being reconstructed by powerful Heralds.

Thralls – These Heralds are masters of gateways. Fast and deadly, Thralls can teleport at will and open Gateways behind their target for a deadly flanking attack. Destroy the portal or be prepared to deal with a Thrall in hand-to-hand combat.

Brute – The Brutes are massive powerhouses. Seemingly unstoppable, the Brutes wield a massive hammer-like weapon that can eject a powerful burst of energy that is best to be avoided. 
Brutes can also reconstruct fallen Constructs.

Harbingers – There are at least two types of Harbingers. One is a master of gravity; the other is a master of gateways. No doubt these high ranking Heralds are the most trusted by the Iconians, and they wield much of the Iconians' power. 
Harbingers can manipulate gravity and open gateways to summon reinforcements. 
It has been said that some Harbingers can even open a portal that can unleash untold energy. Do your best to destroy the Gateways and stay away from the gravitic fields.

In addition, Heralds command five different ships: Mir Fighters, Baltim Raiders, Quas Cruisers, Vonph Battleships and the Iaidon Dreadnoughts.

It's a fascinating read for those who are interested in the lore and background of the Heralds, and the danger that they represent. Read it all on the Star Trek Online site.
