Star Trek Online – Dyson Class Advanced Science Destroyer

Dyson001

 

 

The Dyson Joint Command’s engineering and scientific efforts within the Solanae Dyson Sphere have yielded incredible results. The Starfleet Corps of Engineers has been able to adapt the astonishing discoveries found at this artificial celestial structure to create starships that are inspired by the designs found at the sphere, but do not require the use of Omega particles. The Dyson Science Destroyers are first and foremost science vessels, but each is capable of entering Tactical Mode to significantly alter how the starship performs.

The Starfleet Dyson Science Destroyer variants aren’t as sturdy as the Klingon Defense Force’s models, or stealthy as the Romulan Republic’s, but they have a slightly higher shield modifier to compensate.

Below are the base stats shared by all three variants of the Starfleet Advanced Dyson Science Destroyers:

MontgomeryClass001

The Montgomery Class is an upgraded variant of the Dyson Science Destroyer. It features an additional Tactical console mod slot, improved hull and shield rating and comes equipped with the Proton Destabilizer Module Universal Console. This console allows you to draw power from your warp core to emit a devastating proton beam from your deflector focused on a nearby enemy. Periodically arcing waves of proton energy will lash out at foes nearby your targeted enemy dealing damage to all enemies affected.

Specific Class Stats (in addition to the base stats listed above)

Console Modifications: 4 Tactical, 2 Engineering, 4 Science

Console – Universal – Proton Destabilizer Module

OmegaClass002

The Omega Class is an upgraded variant of the Dyson Science Destroyer. It features an additional Engineering console mod slot, improved hull and shield rating and comes equipped with the Protonic Shielding Matrix Universal Console. This console allows your Dyson class starship to store and then divert tremendous amounts of proton particles to periodically reinforce your shields for a while. This will cause your starship to negate large amounts of damage every few seconds for a short time.

 

Specific Class Stats (in addition to the base stats listed above)

Console Modifications: 3 Tactical, 3 Engineering, 4 Science

Console – Universal – Protonic Shield Matrix

HeliosClass001

The Helios Class is an upgraded variant of the Dyson Science Destroyer. It features an additional Science console mod slot, improved hull and shield rating and comes equipped with the Shield Inversion Projector Universal Console. This console allows your Dyson class starship to emit a devastating tachyon beam blast from your deflector, you can cause your foe’s shields to briefly collapse in a wave of energy. The affected enemy will have their shields weakened and suffer heavy shield and hull damage. Allies within the wave will receive a large amount of shield healing.

Tactical Mode

By default the Dyson Science Destroyer is a Science Vessel. However, activating the Tactical Mode ability the starship will transform. Many science systems will be disabled or altered while some tactical systems will become active. When activating Tactical Mode the following occurs:

Enables Dual Heavy Proton Cannon

+15 Weapon Power

+Turn Rate

+Impulse Speed

+Inertia

Lt. Commander Tactical Bridge Officer seat is upgrade to Commander Tactical

Commander Science Bridge Officer seat is downgraded to Lt. Commander Science

Secondary Deflector is disabled

Sensor Analysis is disabled

Subsystem Targeting is disabled

-15 Aux Power

Tactical Mode may be deactivated at any time to return to the default Science Mode, but doing so incurs a 60 second cooldown on the transformation back to Tactical Mode.

Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons [Acc] [CrtH]x2 (Very Rare)

These devastating weapons are only available when the Dyson Science Destroyer is in Tactical Mode and are built into the ship. They cannot be removed. When in tactical mode, the starship effectively has 4 Fore and 3 Aft weapon slots with one of the Fore slots automatically taken by the Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons. These experimental weapons are already balanced to do comparable damage to more conventional energy types, and can be further enhanced by Consoles which enhance Cannons and/or Proton Damage.

Solanae Advanced Technologies Set

The above consoles and the Solanae Secondary Deflector (found on the Anniversary reward Dyson ships) make up the 4 piece Solanae Advanced Technologies Set. Collecting and equipping all four pieces from this set will empower the powers provided by the consoles listed above. Below are the three set bonuses provided by the Solanae Advanced Technologies Set:

Solanae Energy Lattice (2 piece bonus)

Self: +Proton Damage

Self: +Starship Shield System (Shield Max HP)

Proton Energy Matrix (3 piece bonus)

Reduces the cooldown on Dyson Science Destroyer console powers by 1 minute. This affects:

Destabilized Proton Beam

Protonic Shielding

Shield Inversion

Solanae Synergy (4 piece bonus)

Upgrades all three Dyson Science Destroyer console powers:

Destabilized Proton Beam: Will deal its damage over time much more quickly.

Protonic Shielding: Activating this ability also heals shields of allies within 5km

Shield Inversion: Allies affected also receive a shield hardness buff and shield heal over time

Star Trek Online – Tempest Class Patrol Escort

7d70c873cd0c828d28fa9df2188919ba1399334263 8b0e944fd60d5d148b68956aad1170fd1399334220 Tempest001 Tempest002 Tempest003 Tempest004

Patrol Escort Refit: Tempest Class


The Patrol Escorts were envisioned as escorts with an engineering bent. The Patrol Escort Refit: Tempest Class improves on those original designs with greatly improved Bridge Officer seating, a 5th Tactical Console slot, and additional aft firepower that will give Tempest captains new options in combat.

The Tempest comes equipped with a Nadion Saturation Bomb console. Firing the Nadion Saturation Bomb lays down a string of explosive fire that strafes between the ship and its target and then continues to detonate past the target. Any enemy ships caught in the explosions will take severe damage. After detonation, an intense Nadion Radiation Field lingers in space, creating a deadly hazard for enemies. The Nadion Saturation Bomb console may be equipped in any console slot of any Patrol Escort.

The Patrol Escort Refit: Tempest Class also comes with the Aft-Firing Tempest Tail Gun. This unique dual cannon is set up to fire on targets in the rear 90 degree arc of the Patrol Escort, and defaults to the Rapid Fire I firing mode. Like other cannons, the Aft-Firing Tempest Tail Gun can be modified by Scatter Volley and higher rank Rapid Fire bridge officer abilities. The Aft-Firing Tempest Tail Gun is fused to its own slot and does not fill one of the ships three aft weapons slots. It cannot be removed.*

The Patrol Escort Refit comes with the new Tempest class costume by default. As a Patrol Escort, it can also use costume parts from the Dervish, Gryphon and Hermes class costumes. If you have already unlocked the Maelstrom costume, it will also be available to you. Purchasing the Patrol Escort Refit: Tempest Class will unlock the Tempest costume for all Patrol Escorts.
