Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Obelisk Carrier is available to Fleets with Tier 1 Fleet Spire upgrade, for 20,000 , 2x [Fleet Ship Module] and 1 Starbase Military Fleet Provisioning, at the Ship and Shuttle Requisition. Initially, it was a reward for completing the “Sphere of Influence” featured episode, prior to December 5, 2013.
Overview[edit | edit source]
This unique and powerful ship comes from an ancient culture that had a limited contact with the Alpha Quadrant. Although the ship is not Elachi in design, it shares enough similarities with their technology to have a common origin.
This ship can launch attack wings of Obelisk Swarmers in its standard configuration, though other craft can be equipped to be launched. The carrier can also give commands to those craft to order them to attack or defend selected targets. Advanced and Elite versions of these fighters, which can be equipped on any ship with a hangar bay, can be purchased by advancing the Spire Fleet Holding.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Carriers come with built-in abilities. These abilities do not automatically rank up.
- Beam Target Auxiliary Subsystems I
- Beam Target Weapons Subsystems I
- Beam Target Engines Subsystems I
- Beam Target Shields Subsystems I
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.
Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]
Carrier 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.
