The Federation Cruiser Refit is a Lieutenant Commander (Tier 2) level Cruiser. The Cruiser Refit comes equipped with a [Console - Universal - Ionized Gas Sensor] that provides a bonus to Starship Sensors and can modify a torpedo to track down and target a cloaked ship. The Ionized Gas Sensor can be equipped in any console slot of any Cruiser. This ship can be purchased from the C-Store for 750.
Purchasing the Cruiser Refit unlocks the Exeter class skin on the Cruiser (Federation).
 Exeter classU.S.S. Exeter who were killed by a biological agent in 2268. The Exeter class has the white hull texture common to Federation refit vessels.
 Excalibur classStarfleet as a vessel used to resupply planets, space stations, and other starships. The power systems make it possible to run industrial replicators indefinitely, making this class the ideal choice for evacuation and mercy missions.
 Vesper classExcelsior class line of ships. However the general layout reflects that of the more traditional Cruiser. The saucer, unlike that of the Excalibur, is completely round.
 Constitution class (refit)Constitution class (refit), including the famed U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701) underwent its final major refit program. The actual refitting took eighteen months of work and essentially a new vessel was built onto the bones of the old, replacing virtually every major system. Thus, the Constitution class continued in service for a further twenty years, with the U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-A) being one of its most prominent representatives.
Essential upgrades were made to the Constitution-class' warp systems; the old cylindrical nacelles were replaced with new angular ones and the warp nacelle struts were connected to the engineering hull much closer to the neck than before. The engineering hull roughly retained its original shape – while the original hull was essentially a conical cylinder, the refit was much more rounded.
The deflector dish was upgraded, doing away with the "satellite" dish architecture. As for the interior of the hull, the most obvious upgrades were the enlargement of the shuttle deck and landing bay, as well as the addition of a horizontal matter-antimatter reaction assembly and a vertical intermix chamber.
Cruisers are larger than the other ships at this tier. They also have a much stronger hull than the Tier 2 Escort and Science vessels and only Cruisers can hold two Engineering Bridge Officers. They have a balanced weapon system, neither aft or fore being more favored. This is beneficial for the ship given its sub-par turn rates.
Compared to the standard Cruiser, the Cruiser Refit upgrades its Ensign Engineering Bridge Officer to Lieutenant and can equip one additional Science Console in addition to its Ionized Gas Sensor/Emission-Seeking Torpedo combo.
