The Deep Space Science Vessel is an Admiral (Tier 5) level Federation Science Vessel. Designed with a rekindled interest of space exploration after the Dominion Wars, this vessel is equipped with many tools necessary to chart the stars and guide Starfleet into a new age of discovery. The Deep Space Science Vessel has extra Engineering facilities made necessary to make its own repairs or act as a support ship for fleets.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Destiny class[edit | edit source]

Destiny class
The Destiny class was named in a competition on the official Star Trek Online website during the beta stage by shikamaru317. He stated that he named the vessel in memory of his sister who died in 2001 who was also called Destiny. It is the smallest of the three classes of Deep Space Science Vessel.

Oracle class[edit | edit source]

Oracle class
Similar to the Trident class, it has a long triangular shaped main hull rather than a typical saucer section found on most other Federation vessels. Its two nacelles are located at the aft section of the vessel connect to the main hull by small horizontal pylons. It is a new vessel to the Star Trek universe and was not seen prior to the game.

Trident class[edit | edit source]

Trident class
The Trident is a long triangular shaped vessel similar in design to the Oracle class. It has a slightly more abrasive and larger hull than the two other classes of this starship type.

Nimbus class[edit | edit source]

Nimbus class
Nimbus is a variant of the Destiny Class, and very distinctive from the others. Its hull is more armoured and overall length is a bit shorter. Nacelles sport a Klingon-like design instead of the normal Federation soft curves.

This class was previously available as an extra ship skin at the C-Store, but as of Season 6 is exclusive to the Fleet Deep Space Science Vessel. Players who purchased the skin prior to the Season 6 update may still use the Nimbus skin on any Deep Space Science Vessels or Mirror Universe Reconnaissance Science Vessels they own.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Subsystem Targeting[edit source]

The Deep Space Science Vessel 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.

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.

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.
