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.

  1. Another Great Design, with a super weapon.

    Can you explain the meaning of the “universal Lieutenant, Lt. Commander and Commander positions?

    While I understand the officer’s ranks, adding the word “universal” to them seems thoroughly-useless to me.

    • Each Starship has a number of stations available for specific bridge officer roles: Tactical, Engineering and Science. The Universal stations allow you to choose any of the three roles to fill that slot. Each Bridge Officer also has a set of trait specific abilities at various levels such as Commander and Lt. Commander. So, in a Universal Lt. Commander slot, you could place any of your Bridge Officers and they would have access to their trait abilities up to Lt. Commander level.
