The Crossfield-class Science Spearhead is a Rear Admiral (Tier 6) level Science Vessel. This ship is available to Federation and Federation-aligned players from the [Discovery Lock Box] and the [Infinity Lock Box]. It can also be found on the exchange.

Overview[edit | edit source]

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.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - FED - Crossfield Science Spearhead (T6).png
The Crossfield-class is an experimental Starfleet vessel type in service during the 23rd century. The ship's saucer is split into three concentric sections separated by gaps and is connected by a thin neck to a triangular engineering hull. The ship features two extraordinarily long warp nacelles.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

Engaging Spore Drive

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

Specialization Seating[edit | edit source]

The Crossfield-class Science Spearhead features two bridge officer specialist seats:

  • Lieutenant Commander Universal/Intelligence Lieutenant Commander Universal/Intelligence
  • Lieutenant Engineering/Temporal Operative Lieutenant Universal/Temporal Operative

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-class 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 Slot Scaling[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 Scaling[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-class Science Spearhead), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

Hull scaling table
Level Multiplier Hull HP Level Multiplier Hull HP Level Multiplier Hull HP Level Multiplier Hull HP
0 1 13000 20 2 26000 40 3 39000 60 4 52000

15 1.75 22750 35 2.75 35750 55 3.725 48425

Notes[edit | edit source]

The U.S.S. Discovery Bridge, as seen in Star Trek: Discovery
  • The Crossfield-class 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.
