Assault Cruiser Refit
This ship also comes with 2 unique items. The first is a [Console - Universal - Metreon Gas Canisters], which vents gas from the Bussard Collectors. This gas can be ignited and used to damage enemy vessels. The resulting explosions can be extremely devastating. The other is a unique weapon, the [Wide Angle Quantum Torpedo Launcher]. Like the [Voth Transphasic-Chroniton Torpedo Launcher], this weapon has a firing arc of 180°, twice that of standard torpedo launchers.
Like the Tactical Escort Refit and Heavy Escort Carrier, the Regent class by default uses a brighter, stark white hull paint base, with black highlights in the default "Andromeda" pattern. Its design is much more elongated than the other Assault Cruiser classes, and features a flatter saucer tapering into an engineering section derived from the Odyssey class split-hull. The nacelle pylons are swept forward, and if Regent nacelles and pylons are paired with a shorter hull option (such as the Sovereign), the nacelles models will clip into the saucer. The Regent also features bright dome-shaped structures on the underside of the saucer and on the dorsal hull.
Sovereign classEnterprise-E is a Sovereign class vessel. The Sovereign has an elongated saucer section connected to the secondary hull with a streamlined and interconnected neck area. The secondary hull has two up-swept pylons attached to it which lead to the ship's nacelles.
Majestic classTyphoon Class Battleship, such as the design of the saucer section and nacelle pylons.
This class was previously available as an extra ship skin at the C-Store, but as of Season 7 is exclusive to the Fleet Assault Cruiser Refit. Players who purchased the skin prior to the Season 7 update may still use the Imperial skin on any Assault Cruisers or Assault Cruiser Refits they own.
Possessing many unusual features for a Refit vessel, the Assault Cruiser Refit is a very potent ship for anyone wanting a good mix of Tactical and Engineering. With +10 Weapons Power, stronger shields and the replacement of the Lt. Commander Engineering Bridge Officer with a Tactical one, the ship is better than the standard Assault Cruiser at taking punishment while giving it in return. The replacement of the Lieutenant Science Bridge Officer slot with a Universal one also offers the player more options with which to accentuate their Tactical or Engineering side if need be.
While the Metreon Gas Canisters console is useful in certain situations, the ship's other special feature - the wide angle Quantum Torpedo Launcher - is an excellent one for an offense-orientated Cruiser. Effectively doubling the firing arc of the torpedo launchers, this augments the already-formidable hitting power of quantum torpedoes, and also makes up for the ship's limited maneuverability in bringing the torpedoes to bear.

- The Regent-class may have been based off of John Eaves' initial drawings for the "U.S.S. Endeavour", a ship that was initially planned to make an introduction in Star Trek: First Contact. While the Endeavour was dropped from the story, the design sketches were refined by Eaves into the Sovereign-class.
