The Andromeda-class Exploration Cruiser is a Tier 6 Cruiser which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. This starship can be used from any level upon completion of the tutorial experience. As you level up, this ship gains additional hull, weapon slots, and console slots.

Players can obtain this starship from the Zen Store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png. This ship can be purchased individually, or as part of the T6 Cross Faction Cruiser Bundle for 6,000 Zen small icon.png.

Purchasing this starship will unlock a Fleet Ship Module discount when purchasing the Fleet Galaxy Exploration Cruiser.

Overview[edit | edit source]

This vessel is a heavily modified version of the Galaxy-class Exploration Cruiser. The Tier 6 vessel upgrades this class with the latest standard equipment used in the early 25th century.

Class variants

Class Information

Galaxy class

Starfleet's top-of-the-line vessel in the mid-24th century, the most prominent Exploration Cruiser variant is the Galaxy class, which was the flagship of the fleet when it was first introduced in the late 2350s. The most well known Galaxy-class vessel was the USS Enterprise-D, commanded by Captain Jean-Luc Picard. This is the shortest Exploration Cruiser variant, but the best known.

Celestial class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free, but only available on Tier 4 Exploration Cruiser variants
The design of the Celestial class has components reminiscent of the Ambassador class line of Starfleet cruisers. Distinguishing differences between the Celestial- and Ambassador-class designs are the straight pylons, conical warp nacelles and engineering hull, and the thicker saucer.
Federation Exploration Cruiser (Envoy).png
Envoy class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free, but only available on Tier 4 Exploration Cruiser variants
The Envoy variant is the longest of the three. The saucer and and neck are also the largest. The pylons are slightly banked and are forked toward the nacelle area. The ship is significantly bulkier than the other variants which feature smooth hulls. Its nacelles are less armored than the others with a field grille covering the bottom end of the nacelle.
Federation Exploration Cruiser (Monarch).png
Monarch class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free with any T5 or T6 Exploration Cruiser variant
Though similar in layout to the Galaxy, the Monarch class takes on harder edges, banked nacelles, and other structural changes throughout the spaceframe, incorporating lessons learned from its older siblings' 50 years of service. It is also tied with the Venture Class for the largest variant of the Exploration Cruiser line.

SKIN UNLOCK: Venture Exploration Cruiser Refit, 1500 Zen small icon.png
Based on the Galaxy-class design, the Venture class represents the pinnacle in Starship design. It has a longer more swept neck, and a more faceted main deflector. It also bears details reminiscent of the Sovereign class, such as the raised V-shaped platform on the primary hull detail, and a whiter-colored hull with darker markings. It is also tied with the Monarch class for the largest Exploration Cruiser variant.

Andromeda class development patch.png

Following the success of the Pathfinder class in Operation Delta Rising, Starfleet Corps of Engineers teams at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards began work on updates of other core ship designs in the Federation fleet. The Andromeda-class Exploration Cruiser is the first ship from this effort to be released to Starfleet captains. An update of the famed Galaxy class that was the flagship of Starfleet in the mid-24th century, the Andromeda incorporates updated technology developed to give this ship improved capabilities for the difficult challenges Starfleet faces in the months ahead.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

The Andromeda-class Exploration Cruiser comes with a [Console - Universal - Molecular Cohesion Nullifier]. Experimental shielding technology has taken a turn towards offensive weaponry, allowing this device to generate a local field that damages the molecular bonds of matter in a short radius. The Molecular Cohesion Nullifier Field will also protect the user from all sources of damage while active. Both the damage and the damage resistance effects will resonate at more powerful frequencies, based on how many foes are within the affected area. This console provides a passive bonus to all Subsystem Power Levels.

This vessel can also utilize the Saucer Separation and Antimatter Spread consoles from lower-tier Exploration Cruisers. These three consoles form the Enhanced Engineering Systems Set.

Cruiser commands[edit source]

The Andromeda-class Exploration Cruiser supports the following cruiser commands:

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.


Scaling starship[edit source]

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment slots[edit source]

As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, and science console slots will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Level Console tac icon.png Console eng icon.png Console sci icon.png Fore weapons Aft weapons

20-29 2 3 2 3 3
30-39 3 3 3 4 4
40+ 3 4 3

Hull strength[edit source]

This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.333333 for the Andromeda Exploration Cruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
