Star Trek Online – Tier 6 Starship – Andromeda Class – Exploration Cruiser

4e9b0a425e94278598916fbd99ea98081427912051 Following the success of the Pathfinder class in Operation Delta Rising, Starfleet Corps of Engineers teams at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards began work on updates of other core ship designs in the Federation fleet. The Andromeda Exploration Cruiser is the first ship from this effort to be released to Starfleet captains. An update of the famed Galaxy class that was the flagship of Starfleet in the mid-24th century, the Andromeda incorporates updated technology developed to give this ship improved capabilities for the difficult challenges Starfleet faces in the months ahead.

This starship features a Lieutenant Commander Engineering/Command specialist seat.

Costume

Console – Universal – Molecular Cohesion Nullifier

Experimental shielding technology has taken a turn towards offensive weaponry, allowing this device to generate a local field that damages the molecular bonds of matter in a short radius. The Molecular Cohesion Nullifier Field will also protect the user from all sources of damage while active. Both the damage and damage resistance effects will resonate at more powerful frequencies, based on how many foes are within the affected area. In addition, while equipped, this console also provides a passive bonus to max sub-system power levels.

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
