Basic Information[edit | edit source]

  • Profession: Any
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description:
  • Build Inspiration when you use Bridge Officer abilities while in combat. Command Bridge Officer abilities generate double Inspiration.
  • Once your Inspiration meter is full, you can use an Inspiration ability. Once used, your Inspiration meter is reset to 0 and you will be unable to generate Inspiration for a short time.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

When the inspiration meter is full, Command ships can use one of the three Ability: Inspiration Abilities on this target. These powerful abilities buff you and your teammates.

While active, you and your teammate will regenerate hull very quickly and have their damage resistances increased substantially. Activating this ability requires a full bar of Inspiration. Multiple stacks of this ability will extend the duration instead of stacking the potency of this effect.

When activated, all of your team's Bridge Officer abilities will receive a massive reduction in remaining charge time. This will cause most abilities to immediately fully recharge or very nearly fully recharge. Activating this ability requires a full bar of Inspiration, has a longer recharge time than other Inspiration abilities, and once affected by this ability, you can neither use nor be affected by this ability for a period of time.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • On the launch of Command ships on February 12th, 2015, Inspiration was also generated by bridge officer abilities used by your teammates. On Feburary 19th Inspiration generation was tweaked, but due to team Inspiration generation having an unexpected impact on server performance, this was disabled with the May 14th, 2015 patch, which increased Inspiration generation to compensate.
