Basic Information[edit | edit source]

  • Profession: None
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: Generates a photonic duplicate(decoy) of your ship while masking your own ship's energy signature.

    Auxiliary Power and Starship Stealth Skill improve the masking component of the ability. The effect can be maintained for a short duration, and can be deactivated sooner if desired. Maintaining this ability drains some power from your weapon, shield and engine systems.You cannot fire while under the effect of the ability.

    Typically cannot be activated if your ship is separated or otherwise modified (e.g. when in Saucer Separation or Multi-Vector Attack Mode mode).
