Bommas were developed during Da Moovment, as a supplmenet to Fightas. The were developed in response to the Indoctrinate Collective's large ships, which the Loron needed smaller ships to damage without their notice. The Bommas, however, barely worked, as they contained so much antimatter that the ships often blew themselves up.
Unusually, aside from the general zero point energy and particle drives (to replace reliance on unsafe and limited in supply antimatter), the Tralkikianoe technology added little to the Bommas, besides making them run smoother. They added turbolasers, which weren't big parts of the bommas, as well as new, more stable antimatter missiles and bombs, but aside this, very little.
One thing that was done though was that the quantum replicators Tralkikianoe gave the Rogue Boyz meant that the Loron wouldn't have to worry about running out of antimatter. They could simply grab an asteroid, and let the Geek with the quantum replicator do the rest, changing it into an incredible amount of antimatter.
The Borealis Consortium Network, when trading weaponry with the Loron, added plasma explosives onto the ship, which would become powerful weapons that were far safer than just antimatter. They also made the ships run on nuclear energy rather than antimatter, as this was safer for the Loron pilots.
Bommas are bulky ships, filled with plenty of weapons, although all of which are Tralkik weapons. The pilots often paint graffiti onto them, with words like 'dis sik boomz', 'yoo gonna get blown up' and 'dis ship blew up losas' painted on the main hull, and 'dis gun killed [tally chart of ships it destroyed]' onto the guns. Aside this, the Bommas will simply have random colours painted on them depending on the pilot's choice. Some bommas, however, won't be coloured at all.
Pilots of bommas will be impatient for battle, and will fly to the enemy ship/building targeted shooting it with turbolasers, and once it reaches, the pilot will press all the ships' buttons to drop antimatter bombs and missiles. Some pilots, who are often volunteered pilots, will get distracted and get caught in a dogfight, only for the Geek in the ship to put them back on track. The Geek also decides when the self destruct button should be used, as in the past, excitable pilots used to press it by accident to cause an explosion.
The Bommas are full of weapons, and since the weapons run on antimatter, they can cause massive amounts of damage with relatively little antimatter. They are filled with missiles and bombs; the missiles use microscopic amounts of the antimatter they contain to react with hydrogen for propulsion and track onto a selected target, while the bombs are simply dropped on whatever below.
Bommas contain turbolasers, but they won't use them unless they're far off from 'sumfin ta boom'. They will go absolutely crazy when closing, to release bombs and missiles on anything close. For this reason, they are very deadly to enemies, as they simply won't stop releasing all they've got.
It's best to distract bommas with large targets, or to use starfighters to attack, to evade them. However, often Loron Fightas will be there to destroy the starfighters that attack the bommas, making that difficult.
Bommas are useful for destroying larger ships, without the larger ships being too aware. A relatively small amount of bommas releasing all the have on a larger cruiser can cause it huge damage, if not destroy it, making bommas surprisingly deadly for a ship made by Loron.
