The Advanced Research Vessel Retrofit is an Admiral (Tier 5) level Federation Science Vessel. This Retrofit vessel is a heavily modified version of the Advanced Research Vessel (Tier 3). Starfleet upgraded this vessel with the latest standard equipment used in the early 25th century.

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.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Nebula class[edit | edit source]

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.

Magellan class[edit | edit source]

Magellan class

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. It comes equipped with a [Console - Universal - Tachyon Detection Grid], which briefly increases your stealth-sight and provides a small increase overall to Sensors. This class is available for 2000 Zen small icon.png from the C-Store.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

This ship includes the [Console - Universal - Tachyon Detection Grid]. This console is part of the Tachyon Manipulation Technology Set. When activated, the Tachyon Detection Grid increases the stealth detection capability of all friendly vessels in range, which in turn propagate the detection grid to ships within its range, enabling entire squadrons to detect cloaked vessels.

Subsystem Targeting[edit source]

The Advanced Research Vessel Retrofit 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.

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.

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.
