Advanced Obelisk Carrier
The Advanced Obelisk Carrier is an Admiral (Tier 5) an engineering-centric carrier with very high hull strength and an abundant amount of seating for engineering bridge officers and engineering consoles. Among the largest playable starships in Star Trek Online, this hulking carrier comes equipped with Obelisk Swarmer hangar pets in its two hangar bays.
The Advanced Obelisk Carrier comes with a [Console - Universal - Reactive Antiproton Cascade Emitter], which overrides the sensors of the player's target (and enemies near the player's target), forcing them to target the player's ship for a short period of time (only applicable in PvE). During this time, the player's ship gains a large damage resistance and shield hardening increase and after a short time the player will counter enemy energy attacks with a potent defensive system that fires bursts of Antiproton energy at attacking vessels.
Obtaining[edit | edit source]
The Advanced Obelisk Carrier is available from the Lobi Crystal Consortium for 800 . They may also be found on the exchange.
This ship was also available for a time from the mission Sphere of Influence.
Overview[edit | edit source]
This strange and powerful ship is from an ancient culture that has had limited contact with the Alpha Quadrant. Although the ship is not Elachi in design, it shares enough similarities with their technology to have a common origin.
This ship can launch attack wings of Obelisk Swarmers in its standard configuration, though other craft can be equipped to be launched. The carrier can also give commands to those craft to order them to attack or defend selected targets. Advanced and Elite versions of these fighters, which can be equipped on any ship with a hangar bay, can be purchased by advancing the Spire Fleet Holding.

Carrier Commands[edit source]
- Carrier Command - Attack
- Carrier Command - Escort
- Carrier Command - Intercept
- Carrier Command - Recall
Subsystem Targeting[edit source]
Science Vessels come with built-in subsystem targeting abilities. These abilities do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Science starships and must be gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities.
- Target Auxiliary Subsystems I
- Target Weapons Subsystems I
- Target Engines Subsystems I
- Target Shields Subsystems I
Activating a subsystem targeting ability will upgrade all energy weapons for the next 10 seconds. They will drain power from the foe's targeted subsystem, as well as have a chance to cause a subsystem offline for a short duration. If the system is taken offline, all abilities that use that subsystem will temporarily be rendered inert (for example, if the player targets shields and subsequently takes them offline, then all of the enemies shield facings will go down as well).
Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]
Carrier starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.
