    The Black Hole-class Dreadnought is a doughnut-shaped vessel that is ugly and squat in appearance. It features a patchwork of blackened makeshift armour plating and many crude weapon emplacements. A peculiar set of obsolete armaments that are similar to, however less destructive than proton torpedoes equip these vessels. These ships are employed for both space refuse raids and patrolling the Paradise System (also known as J21-Z65). It is known that some Dreadnoughts assigned to protect the Paradise System have a Black Hole emblazoned on their hulls; such ships could be found picketing the centre of the system.

In the centre of these ringed ships, is a hole seething with crackling energies. It is into this maw to which the lurid yellow lights of the Ugor tractor beams guide in the space refuse. For ship-to-ship docking, Black Holes are fitted with docking claws. The patchwork construction of these ships is such that it makes the Squib's haphazard designs appear to be secure and sane. Furthermore, it appears that the constituent components of these ships were truly intended to be disposed of. Internally, sparking electric panels are covered by an unknown glop, and periodically, an unhealthy shudder runs through the clammy, dimly-lit ships. When engaging their primary rivals, the Squibs, the Ugor's Dreadnought's intention is not to destroy them, but rather employ their weapons to keep the Squibs occupied while they tractor in the choicest prizes of space garbage.
