The Protegit is a fast-flying companion to the mothership, the Cubikon. Found alongside the Cubikon mothership, and in some Galaxy Gates, the Protegit is one of the most annoying Aliens in the Darkorbit Universe.
As a defender to the Cubikon, the Protegit will spawn in groups of 20 - 30 when its mothership, the Cubikon, is attacked. They will swarm around the first attacking Ship, and deal large amounts of Damage over a small period of time. They are the only defense the Cubikon has against players.
Once the parent Cubikon is destroyed, the Protegits will fly around, attacking anything in it's path. They will not, however, follow any ships. Eventually, they will disappear and a new Cubikon will spawn at their former location.

  • When killing a Protegit that was not your kill in Level Invasion Gate. An interesting message will be left in your log. Instead of saying "X destroyed" it will say:

Cubikon (Protegit) escort ship destroyed


  • If you are fighting Protegits in a Galaxy Gate, have a Vengeance or Goliath with maximum (480 and 450, respectively) speed to be able and evade them safely.
  • Due to the large damage dealt by Protegits, Cubikon require a group of FE players (minimum of 3) to deal with such a mothership.
  • Stronger FE ships may take on cubikons alone how ever the player is recomended to have plenty of SAB-50 ammo, x3 ammo, and x4 ammo.
