The Advanced Research Vessel (T6) is a Lieutenant General (Tier 6) level Science Vessel. This ship is available to Federation-aligned players from the Cryptic store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png, or as part of the T6 Cross Faction Science Modern Bundle for 6,000 Zen small icon.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Sutherland-class Advanced Research Vessel is built to support fleet actions as well as stand tall on its own through the use of its tachyon-based tech. A tough Federation science ship equipped with a Tachyon Particle Field Emitter, allowing it to drain enemy shields and restore the shields of allies in battle.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Federation Advanced Research Vessel (Nebula).png
Nebula-class
The Nebula class reuses many of the 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.

Nebula skin is automatically unlocked on any Nebula-class variant.

Magellan-class
What the Nebula class is to the Galaxy class, 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.

Players unlock the Magellan skin by acquiring the Advanced Research Vessel Retrofit.
Advanced Research Vessel (Venture).png
Venture-class
Players unlock the Venture skin by acquiring the Exploration Cruiser Refit.
Advanced Research Vessel (Phoenix).png
Phoenix-class
Acquiring the Sutherland-class, players gain access to additional Mission Pod and Stanchions (as seen on the USS Phoenix) which can be combined with Nebula-class parts to create Phoenix-class.

Players unlock the Phoenix skin by acquiring the Advanced Research Vessel (T6).

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

The Advanced Research Vessel (T6) comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Tachyon Particle Field Emitter].

This ability is part of the Tachyon Manipulation Technology Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Tachyon Detection Grid] obtainable with Advanced Research Vessel Retrofit (T5), but also equippable on the Advanced Research Vessel (T6). For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.

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 Advanced Research Vessel (T6) 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.

Specialization Seating[edit | edit source]

The Advanced Research Vessel (T6) features one specialist seat:

  • Lieutenant Commander Engineering/Temporal Operative Lieutenant Commander Engineering/Temporal Operative

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.
