Star Trek Online – Personal Starships – U.S.S. Rembrandt

Having progressed to Lieutenant Commander within Star Trek Online, and enjoying the newest additions that came out today, I thought I would take this opportunity to show off our current starship: the Federation Science Vessel U.S.S. Rembrandt, NCC-93276. Her design consists of a combination of components from the Aurora Class, the Quasar Class, and the Rhode Island Class starships. We also outfitted her with my Prototype Red Matter capacitor, Enhanced Plasma Manifold, and the new Photonic Dsiplacer Module.

 

 

 

Star Trek Online – Special Vessel – Thunderchild Class

The only Tier3 specialty vessel currently available in the Star Trek Online C-Store, comes the Thunderchild Class. The first U.S.S. Thunderchild was an Akira Class starship that fought the Borg at the Battle of Sector 001 in 2373. The Heavy Escort Refit: Thunderchild Class pays homage to the brave men and women who served aboard that vessel. This ship comes equipped with a Point Defense System. This console activates an automated Phaser Turret Point Defense System designed to defend the vessel from small craft, mines and targetable torpedoes, but that will also target larger vessels as well. This console can be equipped on any escort in any console slot.

Star Trek Online – Special Vessels – Venture Class

Next up for the Specialty starships available for Tier4 players of Star Trek Online comes the Exploration Cruiser Refit Venture Class. A variation on the famed Galaxy class, the Exploration Cruiser Refit: Venture Class honors the U.S.S. Venture, a Galaxy-class vessel that served with distinction during the Dominion War. This vessel comes equipped with an Antimatter Spread Module. This console allows you to fire an Antimatter Spread around your ship that will confuse enemy sensors. The Antimatter Spread Module may be equipped on any cruiserin any console slot.

The Exploration Cruiser Refit configuration includes the Venture, Galaxy, Celestial and Envoy classes. Unlocking the Exploration Cruiser Refit: Venture Class also unlocks the Venture Class costume for the Exploration Cruiser, the Exploration Cruiser Retrofit, and the Galaxy Dreadnought.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Star Trek Online – Special Starship – Bellerophon Class

Moving into the Tier 4 specialty starships, we begin with the new Bellerophon Class Long Range Science Vessel

A variation of the Inrepid class, the Long Range Science Vessel Refit: Bellerophon Class takes its name from the U.S.S. Bellerophon, an Intrepid  class vessel commanded by Admiral William Ross during the Dominion War. The Bellerophon Class comes equipped with a Nadeon Detonator Module. This console modification allows you to alter a Photon Torpedo so it generates a Photonic Shockwave upon impact. The Nadeon Detonator Module may be equipped on any Science Vessel in any console slot.

Completing the current add-ons to the Tier 2 starships available in Star Trek Online is the new Exeter Class.

The Exeter Class comes equipped with an Ionized Gas Sensor that provides a bonus to Starship Sensors and can modify a torpedo to track down and target a cloaked ship.

The Rhode Island Class science vessel is a refit of the Nova Class, with a slightly updated look and new technology. Available in the C-Store, once purchased its components are interchangeable with the other Tier 2 science vessels. Science Vessel Refits come standard with a Photonic Displacer Module. This console module can be used to generate a photonic duplicate while masking the ship’s energy signature — a perfect decoy. The Photonic Displacer Module can be equipped on any Science Vessel in any console slot

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Star Trek Online – Personal Starships – U.S.S. Palomino

I just recently got back online started a brand new campaign within Star Trek Online. I am once again playing along the Science Officer Career path. I thought it would be fun, while playing this time, to get some screen-caps of my starships. My character’s name is James A. Ableman, Liuetenant Starfleet. Currently we are commanding an Oberth Class science vessel, the U.S.S. Palomino, NCC-93099. She came equipped with the Enhanced Plasma Manifold, as well as the retro-fitted fore and aft phaser banks from the TOS Constitution Class vessel. I am playing with the Collector’s edition game so I also have the prototype Red Matter Capacitor installed.

 

Star Trek Online – Special Starship – Oberth Class

Here we have one of my personal favorites of the starships you can purchase with your Cryptic Points in Star Trek Online’s C-Store: the Oberth Class science vessel. She’s small and very nimble. This class is also meant for the Lieutenant rank. She comes equipped with an extra science console and an EnHanced Plasma Manifold, which you can take with you as you rank up and progress on to more advanced starships.
