This rocket with launch pad built by El`Aurian Dr. Tolian Soran in an effort to destroy the Veridian star. He wanted to change the course of the Nexus, so that he can return once again there. Picard and Kirk prevented these however. The warhead of this star killer is equipped with trilithium, a quantity enough to achieve a quantum explosion. This would bring all fusion processes in the star to the halt. This changes the gravitational currents in the area and destroys the star.
The control console of the launch pad has four sections. Left is the release of the anchorage. In the middle is the timer and the multi-function display. On the right is then the target acquisition.
