Star Trek Online – Dauntless Class – Experimental Science Vessel

Dauntless001 Dauntless004 Dauntless003 Dauntless002





The original Duantless Class science vessel, discovered by the crew of the U.S.S. Voyager, was actually alien in origin. It featured Quantum Slipstream Drive technology, which was groundbreaking at the time, but ultimately this ship was created using particle synthesis to fool and trap the crew of the Voyager. In 2410, the blueprints for the original alien ship were closely examined and Starfleet Engineering Corps were able to recreate this impressive Tier6 science vessel.

The Experimental Science Vessel comes equipped with a Particle Synthesizer Universal Console which allows your starship to project a particle synthesis beam at a distant target that causes your target and nearby enemies to take on  your starship’s appearance, thus causing tremendous confusion amongst your enemies. Additionally, a photonic decoy of your starship is created near your position to draw the attention of your enemies.

This console can only be equipped on the Experimental Science Vessel and the Fleet Experimental Science Vessel, but can be put into any of their console slots. You may only equip one of these consoles.

After advancing to level 5 in your Experimental Science Vessel, you will unlock the Radiant Nanite Cloud starship trait. While this trait is slotted, causes all hull heals to heal for an additional 25% over 4 seconds in  a 3km radius.

The Experimental Science Vessel comes equipped with a Deteriorating Secondary Deflector MkX. This Secondary Deflector can be equipped on any vessel with a secondary deflector slot.

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:

Console Modifications: 3 Tactical, 2 Engineering, 5 Science

Console – Universal – Shield Inversion Projector

Dyson010

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:

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.

Star Trek Online – Personal Starship – U.S.S. Heart’s Hope – Borg Adapted Tech

This is what happens when your Chief Engineer, who happens to be a liberated Borg drone, gets her hands on some salvaged Borg technology.

Actually, what you see here are the appearance changes that take effect when you enable the Assimilated Regenerative Shield Array, Assimilated Deflector Array, Assimilated Subtranswarp Engine systems, and an Assimilated Module.

These items are available through the Borg Reputation System within the Star Trek Online game. An additional item I have acquired through this reputation system is a Reverse-engineered Borg Cutting Beam, but this has no effect on the overall appearance of the ship.

These items, when used in conjunction with each other, enable a Borg tractor beam for use during space combat.

Star Trek Online – Personal Starship – U.S.S. Heart’s Hope – Chimera Class Heavy Destroyer

So, here we have yet another long overdue post. Planned as the first in a series of articles that till showcase the many core systems configurations my STO character Adm. John Ableman has acquired through his many assignments in Star Trek Online, here I present to you the Chimera Class Heavy Destroyer: U.S.S. Heart’s Hope, NCC – 93353, in her most basic set-up. This is my primary starship at the moment. I love both the design and the versatility of her capabilities. Her name derives from one of my favorite Orson Scott Card novels, but spelled differently.

The Chimera Heavy Destroyer is similar to an Escort, but has many qualities of Light Cruisers and Science Vessels. While in its innate Regenerative Mode, excess power is transferred to the Auxiliary System and you gain a bonus to Starship Shield Systems. It comes equipped with a prototype Dynamic Tactical System console (or DTS). This console allows you to transform your ship between Regenerative Mode and Tactical Mode. In Regenerative Mode, your Tachyon Inversion Beam is enabled, which can siphon shields from multiple targets. Activating Tactical Mode transfers power to your Weapon Systems, and increases your ships Starship Targeting Systems skill, granting an Accuracy bonus. In Tactical Mode, the DTS console enables a powerful multi-targeting Lotus, which is capable of piercing multiple targets. However, while in Tactical Mode, your Starship Shield Systems bonus, Auxiliary Power bonus and Tachyon Inversion Beam are disabled.

(The Chimera Heavy Destroyer’s design was based off one of the ‘Design the Next Enterprise’ entries, Jason “Vektor” Lee)
