Star Trek Online – Tier 6 Starship – Pathfinder Class – Long Range Science Vessel

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

Master Systems Display – Intrepid Class

Here we have yet another wonderfully crafted Master Systems Display created by Alexander Richardson (http://lcarsgfx.wordpress.com/). If you haven’t already, you should definitely check out his blog. He has created many MSDs for multiple classes of starships, both cannon and non-cannon. This belongs to the U.S.S. Messenger, NCC-74831, of the Intrepid Class.

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.
