Overview[edit | edit source]

Transwarp icon (Federation).png

Transwarp is a method of traveling beyond traditional warp speeds at near-infinite velocity. It was heavily utilized by the Borg in the Delta Quadrant and allowed the U.S.S. Voyager to return home. Players have access to Transwarp throughout their character's career.

The Transwarp ability enables players to travel instantly back to Earth Spacedock or Qo'noS (depending on the player's faction) or to different locations from the galaxy map. This ability can only be used once every 15 minutes; the cooldown timer only counts down while in Space mode and logged in.

This power has been moved to the upper-right corner of the default screen layout. To invoke the Transwarp options, click on the transwarp icon.

Ship Special Ability Transwarp[edit | edit source]

This article or section is in need of an update.
Section on exploration clusters needs updated here and on related pages.
Please help out STO Wiki by adding the necessary changes!

Some ships have a special ability to transwarp to diferrent locations (except fleet) no matter of level of player, commendation achieved, or being in a fleet.

The Advanced Heavy Cruiser, Fleet Advanced Heavy Cruiser Retrofit and Advanced Heavy Cruiser Retrofit include a special Transwarp drive that lets these ships travel to the following sectors throughout the Alpha and Beta Quadrants:

Alpha Quadrant

Beta Quadrant

On occasion, the engine will fail to make the jump. This was by design to mimic the events from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock when the transwarp drive on the USS Excelsior was disabled.

The Tuffli Class Freighter and Suliban Cell Ship include a special Transwarp drive that lets those ships travel to Exploration Clusters.

The Advanced Heavy Cruiser, Advanced Heavy Cruiser Retrofit, Tuffli Class Freighter, and Suliban Cell Ship provide their additional Transwarp destinations when the player has one of those ships selected as current.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In Season 4, the cooldown on Transwarp powers was reduced from 30 to 15 minutes.
  • With start of Legacy of Romulus the cooldown on Transwarp was reduced to 12 minutes for all players who completed Tour the Galaxy.
