The Cardassian Detapa Intel Escort is a Vice Admiral (Tier 6) level Escort. This ship is available to Federation, KDF, Romulan Republic and Dominion players. It can be obtained from the C-Store individually for 3,000 Zen small icon.png, as part of the 6,000 Zen small icon.png Cardassian 3-pack, or 13,000 Zen small icon.png Gamma Vanguard Pack.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Recent starship development on Cardassia has changed a lot from the time of the Dominion War, and before. More focus is given these days to sizing up opponents before leaping into the fray, rather than trusting on the strength of ship's armaments and skill of the crew. Better to be prepared, than to be dead. Of course, even a cautious approach needs forward scouts, and the Detapa-class Intel Escort is the perfect blend of reconnaissance vessel and forward strike crew. These nimble vessels bear the honor of being named after the reinstated civilian government of the recently-reformed Cardassian Union.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

The Cardassian Detapa Intel Escort comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Spiral Wave Blast Module].

This ability is part of the Reformation Reinforcements Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Cardassian Support Platform Cluster] and [Console - Universal - Cardassian Mobile Torpedo Platform] obtainable with Cardassian Intel Science Dreadnought (T6) and Cardassian Intel Flight-Deck Cruiser (T6), but also equippable on the Cardassian Detapa Intel Escort. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.

Active Sensor Arrays

As an Intelligence starship, the Cardassian Detapa Intel Escort is capable of deploying an Intel sensor drone with the Gather Intelligence ability.

While the target is Vulnerable, one of three Expose Vulnerability abilities can be used. These powerful abilities find a critical weakness in the targeted foe and allow players to briefly exploit it.

Intelligence vessels also have a built-in passive ability which renders them undetectable at long range.


The Cardassian Detapa Intel Escort has a cloak that allows the ship to cloak when not in combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Experimental Weapon[edit source]

The Cardassian Detapa Intel Escort comes with an Experimental Weapon slot. This additional slot does not fit standard weapons. Unlike standard starship weapons, Experimental weapons are not affected by weapon firing modes, such as those granted by bridge officer abilities.

Specialization Seating[edit | edit source]

The Cardassian Detapa Intel Escort features two specialist seats:

  • Commander Tactical-Intelligence Commander Tactical-Intelligence
  • Ensign Universal-Intelligence Ensign Universal-Intelligence

Standard configuration[edit | edit source]

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
0-9 3 2 0 3 1
10-19 3 2 1 4 1
20-29 4 3 1 4 2
30-39 4 3 2 5 2
40+ 5 4 2

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 (1.15 for the Cardassian Detapa Intel Escort), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
