The Exploration Cruiser Retrofit is an Admiral (Tier 5) level Federation Cruiser. This Retrofit vessel is a heavily modified version of the (Tier 4) Exploration Cruiser. The most prominent Exploration Cruiser variant is the Galaxy class, which was the flagship of the fleet when it was first introduced in the late 2350s. The most well known Galaxy class vessel was the USS Enterprise-D, commanded by Captain Jean-Luc Picard. The retrofit upgrades this class with the latest standard equipment used in the early 25th century.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Galaxy class[edit | edit source]

Galaxy class
Galaxy patch.png

Starfleet's top-of-the-line vessel in the mid-24th century. The Galaxy class was made popular by the multiple-award winning series, Star Trek: The Next Generation where the most notable ship of its type was the U.S.S. Enterprise-D. This is the shortest Exploration Cruiser variant, but the most iconic.

Celestial class[edit | edit source]

Celestial class

The design of the Celestial-class has components reminiscent of the Ambassador-class line of Starfleet cruisers. (One such starship was the Enterprise-C, commanded by Rachel Garrett.) Distinguishing differences between the Celestial- and Ambassador-class designs are the straight pylons, conical warp nacelles and engineering hull, and the thicker saucer.

To recreate the look of the Ambassador-class ships, most players prefer using this costume, along with the Galaxy-class pylons. However as of Season 7 the Support Cruiser renders this method semi-moot

Envoy class[edit | edit source]

Envoy class
The Envoy variant is the longest of the original three variants, with the largest saucer and neck. The pylons are slightly banked and are forked toward the nacelle area. The ship is significantly bulkier than the other variants, which feature smooth hulls. Its nacelles are less armored than the others with a field grille covering the bottom end of the nacelle.

Venture class[edit | edit source]

Venture class
Based on the Galaxy class design, the Venture-class represents the pinnacle in Starship design. It has a longer more swept neck, and a more faceted main deflector. It also bears details reminiscent of the Sovereign class, such as the raised V-shaped platform on the primary hull detail, and a whiter-colored hull with darker markings. It is also tied with the Monarch Class for the largest Exploration Cruiser variant.

This class is unlocked with the purchase of the Exploration Cruiser Refit from the C-Store for 1,500 Zen small icon.png.

The Venture-class appears to be a fair approximation of Andrew Probert's original concept art for the Enterprise-D.

Monarch class[edit | edit source]

Monarch class
Though similar in layout to the Galaxy, the Monarch Class takes on harder edges, banked nacelles, and other structural changes throughout the spaceframe, incorporating lessons learned from its older siblings' 50 years of service. It is also tied with the Venture Class for the largest variant of the Exploration Cruiser line.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • On 6 March 2014, the Exploration Cruiser Retrofit was included as part of a "Galaxy Revamp Bundle", which also includes the Exploration Cruiser Refit and Dreadnought Cruiser. The Saucer Separation animation was updated with the same technology as the Odyssey's Chevron Separation, allowing saucer separation while moving.
  • The Bundle's Saucer Separation and Antimatter Spread consoles form a 2pc set which boosts hull and armor ratings, as well as a +1 bonus to turn rate. Both consoles can be used on this ship, the Dreadnought Cruiser, or either Fleet variant.
  • The Cloaking Device console cannot be used on this ship.
  • The Galaxy-class exploration Cruiser was remodeled in April 2015 to more closely match her canon appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
