The Aeon Timeship is a 29th Century Timeship recovered from the Tholian Assembly. Most of the advanced technology from these ships have been stripped, and have been replaced with contemporary equipment.
The Aeon Timeships appear to be the same class as the Federation Timeship encountered by Captain Kathryn Janeway in 2373. The U.S.S. Voyager's encounter with one of these small crafts left them stranded in 1996. That same craft crashed in the High Sierras in 1967, where it was discovered by Henry Starling, who used the technology on the ship to drive Earth’s advancement in computers all through the late 20th century. The Federation's interest in these vessels cannot be overstated.
The Aeon Timeship comes with a Subatomic Deflector Array. This Deflector provides a small improvement to Starship Flow Capacitors, Particle Generators, Shield Systems and Shield Emitters. The Deflector also enables you to fire a Subatomic Disruptor. This devastating weapon fires a single massive sustained beam capable of breaking apart a target's molecular structure. It can be equipped on any small craft.
Among small craft, the Aeon compares most closely to the Delta Class Shuttle, having a similarly high shield modifier (0.6 rather than the standard 0.5) and bridge officer seating (one universal ensign and one science ensign). However, while the Aeon has lower hull health, it boasts a superior turn rate and impulse modifier.
Other statistical and ability inclusions set the Aeon apart from other small craft, casting it as a science-oriented vessel. The Aeon's console layout strongly favors science consoles over engineering consoles. This layout allows an Aeon pilot to equip items that can boost shield capacity and strength considerably (such as Field Generators), or boost science skill effectiveness. The Aeon also has an innate bonus to auxiliary power, as well as Sensor Analysis, an ability exclusive to science-specialty ships.
Federation starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.
The strength of the shuttle's hull also scales with the player, though this is based on rank rather than level.
The Sensor Analysis passive ability grants the player a stacking damage bonus of 3.33% per minute against a single target whilst the player maintains target lock on an enemy. Once the player switches targets the bonus is reset.
