The Fleet Research Science Vessel Retrofit is an Admiral (Tier 5) level Federation Science Vessel. Players can obtain the vessel through the Shipyard for 20,000 Fleet Credits and 4 Fleet Ship Module icon.png, as long as the player's Fleet has a Tier I shipyard.

All three classes of the Research Science Vessel are very distinct in appearance. Most Starfleet vessels have a saucer-shaped primary hull. However, these vessels have a spherical "saucer section" that isn't actually saucer-shaped. The nacelles are also very long, typically spanning the full length of the secondary hull.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Olympic class[edit | edit source]

Olympic class
The Olympic class was initially designed as a hospital ship capable of warp 13, but was refitted for service in general scientific missions. The Olympic class is the smallest of the three Research Science Vessels. The U.S.S. Pasteur is an example of this class of ship.

Hope class[edit | edit source]

Hope class
The Hope class is the only one of the three that doesn't have a fully spherical main hull. The main hull has been compressed on the sides giving it more of a yo-yo appearance. Its secondary hull follows the same compressed design.

Horizon class[edit | edit source]

Horizon class
The Horizon class Research Vessel has a unique shielded area of its primary hull. This section of the ship will glow in a pulse fashion from blue to white. It has a fairly curved secondary hull and is much larger at the aft section than the fore, giving a head-neck-body appearance.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Federation Science vessels come with built-in abilities. These abilities do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Science starships and must be gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities.

After activating a subsystem targeting ability, the player will have 30 seconds to attack an enemy ship with any form of beam weapon. The attack will lower power to that system, and have a small chance of completely taking the system offline. If the system is taken offline it renders all abilities that use that subsystem temporarily inert. For example, if you target the shields and subsequently take them offline, then all of the enemies shield facings will go down.

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.

Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]

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.
