Planetkiller

The Vorlon Planetkiller is an incredibly large and powerful capital ship, it dwarfs even the Vorlon Mothership. Compared to other ships, its length appears to be over 20 km. The Planetkiller is the ultimate display of Vorlon power, it has the capability of destroying an entire Earth-sized planet. It is unknown how this weapon works, since there has been no survivors to tell their tale.

Mothership
Click for top of page
The Vorlon Mothership is a very large and powerful spacecraft. It is around 1.3 km long, yet surprisingly maneuverable. These ships are organic in nature, and seem to be sentient, but there is also a crew of Vorlons on board. It has only one known weapon, a beam that is emitted from an energy field that is generated between the 4 "arms". Obviously the ship can open up a jump-point. The Mothership also has a defensive system that is capable of absorbing energy from beam weapons, thereby reducing damage. The inner workings and effectiveness of this system is unknown. The Vorlons have many ships of this type, but they are rarely seen, since the Vorlons are so reclusive.

Cruiser

The Vorlon Cruiser looks very similar to the Transport, but it is quite a bit larger. It is also equipped with a very powerful Vorlon beam weapon. Like the Transport, the Cruiser is colored with a yellow or orange/red color scheme. Nothing more is known about these Vorlon ships.

Fighter

The Vorlon Fighter is the most powerful fighter known. It is also amazingly agile, able to out-maneuver any other fighter. This ship has a deadly Vorlon beam, also emitted between the four "arms". It is also a very large craft for being a fighter, around 40 meters long.

Transport

The Vorlon Transport is about twice as long as the Fighter, around 100 meters long, and it has a similar weapon. These ships seem to be used mostly as transportation for Vorlon ambassadors, but they are also used effectively in combat. Like all Vorlon ships, the Transport is based upon organic technology. These ships also seem to be sentient in some way. Like the Cruiser, the Transport is colored with a yellow or orange/red color scheme.
