The Tactical Mode transforms your Dyson Science Destroyer from the classic Science Vessel into a fierce Tactical Destroyer, unlocking a Commander Tactical Bridge Officer Slot and its Experimental Proton Dual Heavy Cannons.

Basic Information[edit | edit source]

  • Profession: Any
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: The default state of the Dyson Science Destroyer is that of a science vessel. However, this starship can enter a "Tactical Mode" by diverting Auxiliary power to Weapons. Many science vessel specific systems will be disabled to enable more offensive systems.
    Activating Tactical Mode will increase Weapon Power by 15, but decrease Auxiliary Power by 15. It will enable the use of the Dyson Science Destroyer's build in Dual Heavy Proton Cannons, but it will disable its Secondary Deflector, Sensor Analysis and Subsystem Targeting. The starship's turn rate, flight sped and inertial will all be increased moderately. Additionally, the default Lieutenant Commander Tactical Bridge Officer seat will be upgraded to a Commander Tactical Bridge Officer seat, while the Commander Science Bridge Officer seat will be downgraded to Lieutenant Commander Science Bridge Officer seat.
