The Crossfield-class Science Spearhead is a Tier 6 Science Vessel 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 [Infinity Lock Box]; it comes in an [Infinity Prize Pack - T6 Ship] choice package, which is bound to you until a ship is chosen. It can also drop from the older [Discovery Lock Box]. The boxed ship is not bound and so may be traded to other players or bought and sold on the Exchange for energy credits under the name [Special Requisition Pack - Crossfield-class Science Spearhead [T6]], as well as under [Special Requisition Pack - Discovery Starship [T6]]. The choice box's contents depend on the player's faction; Federation players will receive the Crossfield Science Spearhead when opening it.

Overview[edit | edit source]

With new threats on the horizon, oftentimes new tactics and equipment are needed to give you the edge in battle - even if they're from the past. As part of a recent effort to ensure that secrets and discoveries are not lost to time, scientists have been working on much of the top-secret technology pioneered on and around the U.S.S. Discovery. Their effort has revealed that many of these inventions can be combined with cutting edge technology to bring powerful new tactics to forefront of any conflict in a blink.

While the Crossfield-class Science Spearhead was originally created to be a vessel that specialized in scientific endeavors, these starships were heavily modified in an effort to aid the war efforts that erupted between the Federation and Klingons after the Battle of the Binary Stars in the mid-23rd Century. These refits proved to be highly effective, and thus a new breed of starships - the Science Spearhead - was born.

Class variants

Class Information

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal consoles[edit | edit source]

Activate the Lorca Maneuver to perform an 8km spore jump and fire salvos of torpedoes at enemy ships in vicinity.

The Crossfield Science Spearhead comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Mycelium Ambush].

Specialization seating

The Crossfield-class Science Spearhead features the following specialist seats:

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.

Subsystem Targeting[edit source]

The Crossfield Science Spearhead 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.

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]

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

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 (1.3 for the Crossfield Science Spearhead), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

Notes[edit | edit source]

The U.S.S. Discovery Bridge, as seen in Star Trek: Discovery.
  • The Crossfield Science Spearhead did not come with its own unique bridge until the release of Age of Discovery.
  • With the release of Victory is Life, the Crossfield's designation was renamed from Science Vanguard to Science Spearhead. This was presumably done to avoid confusion with the Jem'Hadar Vanguard race and ship line.
  • This vessel comes with the unique Crossfield bridge.
