The newest Zentraedi missile, the Minstrel (so named because of the multitude of RWR buzzers its seeker set off in the cockpits of the first Valkyries to encounter this missile) is the sole missile armament of the Quel Quallie (Cyclops Scout Recon) naval auxiliary. Available in directed fragmentation (a space-optimized warhead), nuclear and cluster versions, the Minstrel adds an impressive 'bite' to the Quel-Quallie's armaments.
Unusual for a Zentraedi missile, the Minstrel is a cylindrical missile, with only the four tail fins (actually radar transceivers) projecting. As is standard with almost all missiles in the known galaxy, the utmost tip of the missile contains a seeker head.
