[Combat Impulse Engines] are one of three types of Impulse Engines, each with their own particular specialty. Combat Engines are designed to provide maneuverability at low power, giving them the most thrust capability at low power levels. They are unable to fully utilize large power supplies, resulting in a low maximum speed and minimal gains from increasing power to engines.
Impulse Engine Modifiers[edit source]
Some Impulse Engines may have additional modifiers that either increase existing bonuses or add new ones. engines will have one modifier, will have two, three, and four. The following are examples of Impulse Engine modifiers. Some Engines and modifiers boost Skills by a certain amount, based on Mark level. Refer to the table above for these values.
|[Aux]||Thrusters: 25% speed when engines are disabled.|
|[Spd]||+10% Flight Speed.[mods 1]|
|[Turn]||+0.3 to Flight Turn Rate[mods 2]|
|[Full]||+7.33̄ + 0.766̄×Mk to Full Impulse Flight Speed.[mods 3]|
|Special Engines only (Fleet, Crafted/Upgraded, Reputation)|
|[+CRes]||10% resistance to Control Effects|
|[Damp]||+33 Starship Drain Expertise[mods 4]|
|[Inertia]||+10 Inertia Rating|
| +3.8 Weapon Power Setting|
+3.8 Shield Power Setting
+3.8 Auxiliary Power Setting
|+20% Flight Speed when environmental hazards prevent use of Full Impulse.|
|[SecSpd]||+X Sector Space Travel Speed|
|[SedSpd-2]||+X×2 Sector Space Travel Speed|
|Mark level of item||X =|
- Can appear twice on one engine, though Fleet Engines and some special engines have 3 or more innate or added [Spd] mods. After calculating the base speed for the Engine's Mark level, the game will add 10% for one [Spd] modifier, 20% for [Spd]x2, and so forth. Thus, final speed for standard Impulse Engines will be (7.5+0.375*Mk) + N*0.1*(7.5+0.375*Mk), where N is the number of [Spd] modifiers. This formula works up to Mk XII; Mk XIII items are treated as if they were Mk XVI (16), while Mk XIV items as if they were Mk XXIII (23); for Combat and Hyper-Impulse engines, respectively adding or subtracting 1 Mk level from the final formula will give you a close approximation.
- Engines have a base 4.5 Turn rate; one [Turn] modifier will give them 4.8, and two 5.1, regardless of Mk level. Can appear twice on one engine, though Fleet Engines and some special engines have 3 or more innate or added [Turn] mods.
- Can appear up to 4 times on one Engine. As with [Spd], Mk XIII acts like Mk XVI and Mk XIV like Mk XXIII, so Mk XIII [Full] adds 19.5, Mk XIV adds 24.8. The number displayed rounds to the nearest tenth. For example, [Impulse Engines Mk IV [Full]] would receive a bonus of 10.4.
- Does not scale with Mk level. Previously Starship Inertial Dampers.
- Integrated into Efficient Impulse Engines, and can be found on Fleet Engines.
- Integrated into Dynamic Reroute Impulse Engines, and can be found on .
X modifier value and the same basic deflector stat will be rounded.endinges will have one modifier, will have two, and will have three, will have four. The sum between
AnCombat Impulse Engines will have one modifier suffix, will have two, and will have three. and can have multiples of the same suffix, and stacked suffixes are added together, not multiplied.
Base Flight Stats[edit | edit source]
Turn Rate is mostly determinated by the type of ship so the values are not listed here.

Mission Reward[edit | edit source]
Combat Impulse Engines [Full] [Turn] which scale to player level can be received as a reward from "Coliseum."
