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 your opponents before leaping into the fray, rather than trusting on the strength of your armaments and skill of your crew. Better to be prepared, than to be dead.
The massive Damar-class Intel Science Dreadnought exemplifies these qualities with its intelligence gathering capabilities well-tuned to support its rather vast array of scientific capabilities. This flagship vessel is named after the famous (or, some might say, infamous) military leader who redeemed himself in the closing days of the Dominion War by leading a stand against Cardassia's Dominion oppressors, inspiring the people of Cardassia to free themselves from their harsh rule.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]
The Cardassian Damar Intel Science Dreadnought comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Cardassian Support Platform Cluster].
This ability is part of the Reformation Reinforcements Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Cardassian Mobile Torpedo Platform] and [Console - Universal - Spiral Wave Blast Module] obtainable with Cardassian Intel Flight-Deck Cruiser (T6) and Cardassian Intel Escort (T6), but also equippable on the Cardassian Damar Intel Science Dreadnought. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.
Active Sensor Arrays
As an Intelligence starship, the Cardassian Damar Intel Science Dreadnought 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.
- Expose Vulnerability: Critical Systems
- Expose Vulnerability: Defenses
- Expose Vulnerability: Weapon Systems
Intelligence vessels also have a built-in passive ability which renders them undetectable at long range.
The Cardassian Damar Intel Science Dreadnought has a cloak that allows the ship to cloak when not in combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
Hangar Bay[edit | edit source]
The Cardassian Damar Intel Science Dreadnought comes equipped with a single wing of Yukawa Frigates.
These small craft represent an updated design of the Hideki-class frigates still seen in use around the galaxy. These versatile craft have been refit with abilities designed to impede enemy damage output. These fighters are equipped with three fore Spiral Wave Disruptor Beam Arrays, one fore Photon Torpedo Launcher and one aft Spiral Wave Disruptor Beam Array, and can use Torpedo: Spread I and Suppressive Armaments.

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.
Specialization Seating[edit | edit source]
The Cardassian Damar Intel Science Dreadnought features two specialist seats:
Subsystem Targeting[edit source]
The Cardassian Damar Intel Science Dreadnought 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.
- Target Auxiliary Subsystems I
- Target Weapons Subsystems I
- Target Engines Subsystems I
- Target Shields Subsystems I
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]
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:
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 (1.25 for the Cardassian Damar Intel Science Dreadnought), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
|Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP|
