The Chimera-class Heavy Destroyer is a Tier 5 (Level 40) Destroyer which may be flown by Starfleet characters.

Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer if they are a 1000-day Veteran or a lifetime subscriber.

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. When in Sector Space, the Chimera's pylons angle upwards, like those of the Intrepid class and its sister classes.

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.

Ship Variant - FED - Chimera Heavy Destroyer (T5).jpg
Chimera class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
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 at warp, pulling together to form a more compact appearance.

After the success of the Chimera-class Heavy Destroyer prototype, Utopia Plantia shipyard has decided to make further advancements upon the experimental design of the Heavy Destroyer. The result is the Manticore-class Heavy Destroyer.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal console[edit | edit source]

The Chimera Heavy Destroyer 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 to switch between Regenerative and Tactical modes. It also unlocks two new abilities, depending on the selected 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.

Experimental Weapon[edit source]

The Chimera Heavy Destroyer 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.

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.

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.
