The Quantum Slipstream Drive ability is granted to all classes upon reaching Vice Admiral 50. It allows a ship to travel at increased warp speed for 30 seconds.

Basic Information[edit]

  • Professions: Tactical, Science, Engineer,
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: Quantum Slipstream Drive is an experimental propulsion system first discovered by the U.S.S. Voyager while stranded in the Delta Quadrant. Although still experimental, this propulsion system is now much more stable than the prototype first developed by Captain Kathryn Janeway's crew. Quantum Slipstream Drive allows faster than Warp travel speeds in Sector Space. Quantum Slipstream Drive generates a subspace tunnel in front of your ship allowing it to travel faster than the warp speed barrier of warp 10.
    Slipstream travel has its limitations. The Quantum Slipstream Drive can only be maintained for a limited time. Also, course corrections are very difficult, so although extremely fast, turn rate is very limited. Re-initializing the Slipstream Drive does take some time, so once it is down, it will be down for a while. Before initializing the Quantum Slipstream Drive, it is best to plot a course and engage your warp engines, and then engage the Slipstream.

Trivia[edit]

The speed achieved by Quantum Slipstream Drive is related to the base speed of the slipstream drive variant, total number of Driver Coil skill points and rating of a warp cores' [SSS] modifier according to the following equation:

Slipstream drive speed =

(1 + [SSS] warp core modifier rating) * ((100 + (Total Driver Coil points / 2)) * (Base sector space speed of Slipstream Drive / 100))


  • Only M.A.C.O. Impulse Engines and the Mk XII Adopted Honor Guard Impulse Engine possess an innate Driver Coil buff thus are the only impulse engines to affect Slipstream speed; Mk X = +7.5, Mk XI = +8.1, Mk XII = +8.8. (Borg Assimilated Subtranswarp Engines do not possess a Driver Coil buff thus do not affect Slipstream speed)
  • Prior to the October 10th 2012 patch both normal and advanced version of Slipstream Drive possessed the same base speed of Transwarp 20. After the patch the advanced version had its base speed increased to Transwarp 22.86.
  • On the 21st of May 2013 the Legacy of Romulus was released introducing Warp Cores to ships. There are 2 warp core modifiers which affect slipstream Drive speed; [Coi] and [SSS]. Mk XI warp cores with [Coi] increase the number of Driver Coil points by +16.2 while the Mk XII warp cores increase is +17.5. Mk XI warp cores with [SSS] increase Slipstream drive speed by +0.1 (10%) while the Mk XII warp core increase is +0.2 (20%).
  • A Mk XI Matter-Antimatter Warp Core with both [Coi] and [SSS] modifiers is available as a reward from the Nimbus III episode 'Installation 18'.
  • The current fastest sector space speed is Transwarp 67.55, requiring the Chroniton Integrated Slipstream Drive (base speed of Transwarp 25 - bonus of the Multi-mission Explorer 2 piece console set), Driver Coil 9x (+99 Driver Coil points), Diplomatic Immunity (+50 Driver Coil points), Raiding Party (+50 Driver Coil points), M.A.C.O. Impulse Engines Mk XII or Adapted Honor Guard Mk XII Impulse Engine (+8.8 Driver Coil), a Critical Success in Assignment: Perform Antimatter Containment Leak Drills (+25 Driver Coil points) and a Mk XII Warp Core with [Coi] and [SSS] modifier (+17.5 Driver Coil points and 20% boost to overall Slipstream drive speed).

Notes[edit]

  • If all Captain skill points are not allocated for a character, a known bug may cause the Quantum Slipstream Drive to not become available. Ensure to allocate all skill points up to the maximum 366,000 when possible, although having 500 remaining (365,500 allocated) appears to not induce the bug.
