Blink Cannon: Capital ship. Brittle, rare, and seemingly very costly ship, specializes in teleporting heavy—often nuclear and antimatter—explosives, hard radiation bombs, suicide drones, and FTL missiles into the gut of the Human fleet. Fortunately, there is a brief phase‐in period for these devices on the other side, and objects can only appear in hard vacuum. Possible alien advances in Blink technology are a constant source of worry for Naval Command.

The most valuable of all Cephalopod capital ships, it wields the extremely destructive Blink Bombardment Cannon. Typically deployed at siege range, and heavily defended. Seven were deployed in the initial forces defending the Wormhole Stabilizer - more than enough to force the large Human fleet to retreat - before many more came through the wormhole.
