The mighty Scarab is the last line of defense for the Polaris people. Only a handful of the vessels have ever been constructed, and they mount the most devastating ordinance that the Polaris can produce. Two pulse lasers provide short-range firepower, while a Polaron emitter in the front mandibles fires a packet of coherent energy dubbed the Polaron Torpedo. This ship is capable of taking on entire fleets by itself, and has done so on occasion. However, there are pitifully few of these proud ships, and the defense of Polaris Space is a heavy burden on their shoulders.

Each Scarab comes stock with four Manta attack fighters, though they can carry up to six in their bay.
Also, for more weapon space you can purchase two cargo retools (bringing your total cargo space to 120) and then buy a Sigma Mass expansion. If you need cargo space(it will all be gone after you buy the Sigma Mass expansion) buying the removable cargo expansions is recommended. Some space is lost in this endevour but your get more space than you would from mass retools.
