The Nebula-class Advanced Research Vessel is a Tier 3 (Level 20) Science Vessel which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters.

Players can obtain this starship from the Zen Store for 1,000 Zen small icon.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Known as the new "workhorse" of the Federation, this ship type has been in Starfleet service since 2363. This class of vessel replaced the Miranda class as the multi-purpose mission vessel, taking on various tasks from patrols to humanitarian or diplomatic missions, exploration and research duties.

Class variants

Class Information

Nebula class

Aft
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Nebula class is an iconic 24th century design and sibling to the Galaxy class. The Nebula class reuses many of the same structural components and much of the technology of the Galaxy class, but is tailored to be less expensive and more flexible. It has a large saucer shaped primary hull atop a smaller secondary hull, with the warp nacelles mounted below the saucer. To the aft is a large pylon supporting a triangular mission pod.

SKIN UNLOCK: Sutherland Advanced Research Vessel, 3000 Zen small icon.png
Acquiring the Sutherland class grants access to an additional Mission Pod and Stanchions (as seen on the USS Phoenix) which can be combined with Nebula-class parts to create a Phoenix-style Nebula class.

SKIN UNLOCK: Venture Exploration Cruiser Refit, 1500 Zen small icon.png
This variant of the Advanced Research Vessel utilizes Venture class components. Its triangular mission pod is oriented 'backwards' compared to the Nebula.

This starship class has not yet been given a formal name.

What the Nebula is to the Galaxy, the Magellan is to the Monarch class. The Magellan class has a broader, more angular mission pod, and its warp nacelles have a triangular cross section.

As with the other Nebula class variants, the Sutherland too is based on Exploration Cruiser components: the Andromeda class.

Abililites[edit | edit source]

Universal console[edit | edit source]

This vessel includes the [Console - Universal - Tachyon Detection Field]. It gives the ship a strong boost to sensing abilities, as well as a small boost to cloak detection. The Tachyon Detection Field can be removed and equipped on any vessel.

Sensor Analysis[edit source]

Sensor Analysis is an active toggle ability. While maintaining a Sensor Lock on a target, the player gains a stacking effect that either improves the damage and power drain against an enemy, or improves any heal directed towards an ally. This effect stacks every 3 seconds, to a maximum of 6 stacks after 18 continuous seconds. To maintain the desired effect, the player must hold the sensor lock.

Subsystem Targeting[edit source]

The Nebula Advanced Research Vessel comes with built-in Subsystem Targeting abilities. These built-in abilities stay at Rank I and do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Science starships. They are separate from Subsystem Targeting abilities gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities.

Activating a subsystem targeting ability will upgrade all energy weapons to inflict a stacking power drain on the foe's targeted subsystem for the next 10 seconds. They will also have a small chance to knock the targeted subsystem offline for a short duration.

Standard configuration[edit | edit source]

Federation 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.
