Fire Power[edit | edit source]

A small but useful fire support .
This deployable "little brother" item was developed by the Romulans. It is equipped with a Phaser Beam and will deal Phaser Damage to the selected target.

  • For a level 51 Satellite, compared with an enemy ship of the same rank, the damage is very small (each hit on target will deal 10 HP damage with a critical chance for 22 HP) but can be a good help when you are having trouble destroying a ship, even in Elite Mode gameplay.


Usage / Tips[edit | edit source]

The Turret it is only for Space combat .
After the related assignments is finished, this rewarded device will auto-equip on Device Slots on your ship and a new skill icon will be created on your ship space skills interface.

  • Ability icons Deploy device icon (Federation).pngDeploy device icon (Klingon).png Deploy (devices) will be created on your ship abilities interface.

If it's not there means that all the slots are filled with another devices and will go into normal bag/inventory.
InfoThe device has no shields and for a level 51 item, a Hull with 3721 HP.
Once you have deployed (clicked on the icon skill) the Turret in space, the turret will stay on that location and start to hit the enemies if are within 10km agro/fire range.

Remember The Device Heavy Phaser Satellite Turret shares same cooldown with any other Satellite Turret or Torpedo Platform .


If you have more than 1 Deployable Devices types (satellites) or items in a stack , note that you can launch only 1.So you can't use a phaser satellite with an additional plasma or tetryon satellite or with a Photon Torpedo Platform.
Does not share same cooldown with Federation - Call 1 random ship to help in battle when HP is bellow 50%Klingon - Call 1 random ship to help in battle when HP is bellow 50% Ability: Fleet Support and both can be used in combination.


InfoThe cooldown to launch a new satellite is 300 seconds (5 min.).
Even if the satellite was destroyed in the first seconds, the timer will keep counting down until 0.If the device was not destroyed ,after 5 minutes it will vanish.When the cooldown is over then you can launch a new device.
