The Eclipse Intel Cruiser is quite nimble for a starship of its class. This tier6 starship sacrifices little structural integrity for this benefit. It features a cloaking device and Active Sensor Arrays. The former allows the starship to cloak while not in combat, and the latter allows intel craft to gather information about their target to expose vulnerability in their defense.
The Eclipse Intel Cruiser comes equipped with a Structural Integrity Field Siphon. This devastating device drains the structural integrity field of nearby enemy ships and overloads your own. This not only causes significant hull damage to the affected foes, but it also provides your starship with additional hull strength. This console can only be equipped on the Eclipse Intel Cruiser and the Fleet Eclipse Intel Cruiser, but can be put into any of their console slots. You may only equip one of these consoles.
After acheiving level 5 in your Eclipse Intel Cruiser, you will unlock the Battle Ready Starship Trait. While this trait is slotted, each time you use an Engineering or Intelligence Bridge Officer ability you gain a defense and damage resistance rating buff for a short time. This buff stacks up to 3 times.
Intel ships are all capable of passive warp signature masking. This passive ability grants the intel ship a tiny amount of stealth, which will render the intel craft undetectable at long range. This passive stealth bonus is removed when the starship activates its cloaking device.
When planning first began for Operation Delta Rising, the Starfleet Corps of Engineers quickly realized that an updated version of the famed Intrepid Class would be essential for the mission’s success. Most of the advanced technology used in the Pathfinder was first tested on the U.S.S. Voyager, which was completely updated before it departed for the Delta Quadrant. When Admiral Tuvok was satisfied with the ship’s performance, work could begin to produce Pathfinders for the fleet.
The Pathfinder Class Features a hybrid Intelligence Bridge Officer seat and comes equipped with the Aero Shuttle universal console. While this console is equipped, the Pathfinder can deploy an Aero Shuttle which will provide support during combat. The Aero Shuttle may be equipped in any console slot of any long range science vessel. The Pathfinder also comes equipped with a Deteriorating Secondary Deflector MKX. This may be equipped on any vessel with a secondary deflector slot.
When you reach level 5 in Starsip Mastery in a Pathfinder, you will unlock the Ablative Field Projector starship trait. When this trait is active, all your shield heals will provide a small measure of temporary hit-points to the target.
The Pathfinder Class also features a custom starship material. This may be used on any long range science vessel variant
