Drop Ship

I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.
— Revelation 6:8, New American Standard Bible
Not everyone gets to see a drop ship. When you do, and you see those pods, it's like the end of the world.
— Ta'zhen
  "Drop Ship" refers to a class of large space-faring vessels capable of faster-than-light travel which are designed to transport shock troops, who are dropped onto a planet in pods containing two to four soldiers. The ship itself only ever grazes the atmosphere, at which point the pods are deployed from hangars demarcated with thick, bright yellow stripes off an otherwise grey/white background. Drop Units are primarily used when the aim is to conquer the planet, and they are designed in part to make that very clear to the native inhabitants. On other planets they are known by local terms which mean something like "bringers of the end".
