Ability: Saucer Separation
Overview[edit | edit source]
Saucer Separation is an ability that detaches the saucer section of the ship, allowing both the stardrive section and the saucer section to fight enemies. When this ability is active, the ship loses most of its crew, dramatically altering the repair rates, but it gains a large boost in maneuverability. If an enemy is targeted, the saucer section will focus on that enemy, using its abilities when necessary. When no enemy is targeted, the saucer section will support the player with firepower and random support skills. Oddly, when the saucer section itself is targeted by the player, it will stop moving, using abilities, and firing completely.
It should be noted that when the saucer section of the Exploration Cruiser Retrofit is detached, it is equipped with one fore and one rear phaser array, and has the abilities Emergency Power to Shields and Engineering Team. The Dreadnought Cruiser saucer's weaponry also includes dual phaser cannons and a mini-Phaser Lance. If the Antimatter Spread console, obtained from the Exploration Cruiser Refit, is installed, the saucer gains this ability as well.
Basic Information[edit | edit source]
- Profession: All
- Locale: Space
- Game Description: Separates the saucer section of your ship. Non-essential personnel are evacuated to the saucer section, leaving the Stardrive section with minimal crewmen. However, relieved of her bulk, the Exploration Cruiser's Stardrive section becomes a formidable attack vessel, comparable to any Escort. Power systems are diverted to weapons and speed and maneuverability are greatly increased, though hull and shield HP are slightly reduced. The saucer will follow you, and will attack your target, but the saucer section is not built for combat. If it takes heavy damage, it will be disabled, and you will need to disengage "Saucer Separation" and re-dock with the saucer to get it functional again.
