The Chimera Heavy Destroyer is a Tier 5 (Rear Admiral) level Destroyer. It is similar to an Escort, but has many qualities of Light Cruisers and Science Vessels.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Starfleet Corps of Engineers (SCE) has been working on a special new destroyer class starship, designed for high-level combat situations. The project was so secret that access to the Utopia Planitia shipyard was restricted for months while the project was completed. Now, Starfleet Command has decided to offer ships of this class to its most experienced captains.

The Chimera Heavy Destroyer comes with a [Console - Universal - Dynamic Tactical System], which allows the ship to switch between Regenerative Mode and Tactical Mode. In Regenerative Mode, player gains access to Tachyon Inversion Beam, which can siphon shields from multiple targets. Activating Tactical Mode transfers power to Weapon Systems and enables a powerful multi-targeting lotus, which is capable of piercing multiple targets.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Chimera class[edit | edit source]

Chimera class

In its default mode, the Chimera's structure features an integrated saucer and hull. The ship has a large deflector dish protruding from the bottom of the saucer. Four nacelles are attached to level pylons extending from the rear of the hull. Each nacelle is separated by a short pylon that retracts when in sector space, pulling together to form a more compact appearance.

The Chimera's most striking trait is by far the change in appearance enabled by the Dynamic Tactical System. The console effectively turns the Chimera into a "transformer", with three different appearances. When engaging Tactical Mode, the Chimera's saucer splits, with the outer edges expanding and locking into 3 sections. Portions in the middle of the saucer sink lower, pushing the lower saucer to partially obscure the deflector dish. The center portions of the saucer, near the bridge, also raise up to expose the Chimera's Phaser Lotus Array, and the rear pylons angle downwards to move the nacelles below the saucer.

When in Sector Space, the Chimera's pylons angle upwards, like those of a Long Range Science Vessel Retrofit.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Dauntless Class Experimental Science Vessel can utilize [Console - Universal - Dynamic Tactical System] or [Console - Universal - Enhanced Dynamic Tactical System] from her Tier 6 counterpart. When equipped in any console slot, these consoles allow the Chimera Heavy Destroyer to switch between Regenerative and Tactical modes. It also unlocks two new abilities, depending on the selected mode.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Counting the windows on the hull the ship is about 22 decks tall.
  • The Chimera-class was inspired by a runner-up entry in the Design the Next Enterprise contest, submitted by Jason Lee.
