Mintakan Phasers

Learn to hunt using the traditional Mintakan skills of archery and axe-throwing.
  • Inspired by episodes:
  • TNG: S3E4


Under the expert guidance of our Pioneering and Archery teams, learn the basic skills required for shooting a bow and arrow and throwing an axe.


The Mintakans are a proto-Vulcan species located in the Alpha Quadrant, and much like their proto-Human counterparts, they show few signs of moving beyond the abilities of a pre-industrial-age society.

Their tools are crude, made out of materials readily available and crafted by hand, and rarely using machines to perfect their designs.

As a Starfleet Officer, it's important to be familiar with the works and capabilities of proto-species, their means of production, tool use, etc, in hopes that breaches of the Prime Directive are avoided at all costs by ensuring familiarity of the species before interactions take place.
