Mirror Universe Reconnaissance Science Vessel
The Mirror Universe Reconnaissance Science Vessel is an Admiral (Tier 5) level Science Vessel. This ship looks more like our Prime Universe Deep Space Science Vessel, but favors Tactical Bridge Officer Seating and Console slotting.
It is only available to Federation captains as a rare drop from the [Temporal Lock Box] or [Elachi Lock Box], although crates that contain the Mirror Universe Reconnaissance Science Vessel can sometimes be found on the Exchange.
Destiny classshikamaru317. He stated that he named the vessel in memory of his sister who died in 2001 who was also called Destiny. It is the smallest of the three classes of Deep Space Science Vessel.
This class was previously available as an extra ship skin at the C-Store, but as of Season 6 is exclusive to the Fleet Deep Space Science Vessel. Players who purchased the skin prior to the Season 6 update may still use the Nimbus skin on any Deep Space Science Vessels or Mirror Universe Reconnaissance Science Vessels they own.
This ship has the same basic properties as the Deep Space Science Vessel (crew complement, inertia rating, base turn rate, hull strength), but it has the Bridge Officer seating and Console layout of the Reconnaissance Science Vessel.

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.
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.

- Beam Target Engines Subsystems I
- Beam Target Shields Subsystems I
- Sensor Analysis
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.
