Research Science Vessel
The Research Science Vessel is a Federation Science Vessel available at Commander rank (Tier 3). All three classes of the Research Science Vessel are very distinct in appearance. They have, unlike most Starfleet vessels, a spherical main hull rather than the typical saucer style and their pylons which lead to the nacelles are connect to the fore section of the secondary hull in an up-swept fashion. The nacelles are also very long, typically spanning the full length of the secondary hull.
 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 by default. This class of ship is used by the U.S.S. Seacole.
 Hope class
 Horizon class
Like other science vessels, the Research Science Vessel performs well in the role of support. It can be used to knock out enemy systems using its built-in abilities. In terms of weaponry slots the ship remains competitive against enemy vessels and other tier Starfleet ships with its 3 fore and 2 rear weapon slots. Its one engineering and one tactical console does impact the ship however given the array of very helpful consoles available to players in those two areas.
The ship is quite maneuverable for its size although still lags behind that of the Escort even with extra turn rates from an engineering console and extra power to its Auxiliary subsystem.

 Standard Configuration
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.
