- You may be looking for the NPC version of the Galaxy Dreadnought Cruiser.
The Federation Dreadnought Cruiser is a unique Vice Admiral (tier 5) level cruiser. This vessel can only be obtained through the Cryptic Store for 2500 . This ship was available via the Referral Program prior to the Free to Play update. This massive, powerful battleship is as close as a Federation captain will get to a Klingon Battle Cruiser at this tier. Players must be a Vice Admiral before they can purchase this ship.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
||The Galaxy class was refitted at the turn of the 25th century, after the collapse of the Khitomer Accords in 2399. In response to increased hostility with the Klingons, the newly redesigned ship carries a cloaking device and a devastating spinal lance weapon.
The Galaxy class skin is unlocked for free.
||The Venture class (a refit of the Galaxy class) is available from the C-Store for 1500 in the form of the Exploration Cruiser Refit, and unlocks an additional skin for the Dreadnought Cruiser. The Venture class refit shares the sleeker lines of more modern classes such as the Sovereign.|

Abilities[edit | edit source]
The Dreadnought Cruiser comes with built-in abilities to improve combat performance. After the severe weakening of the Romulan Star Empire from the Hobus supernova, the Treaty of Algeron was dissolved allowing the Federation to develop and install a cloaking device. Additionally, the ability to separate the saucer was sacrificed to install a massive phaser weapon running along the spine of the ship. The included Cloaking Device console is part of the Starfleet Maneuvering Protocol Set.
This ship can also use any of the consoles from the Enhanced Engineering Systems Set, which are included with the various Galaxy-class Exploration Cruisers.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- On March 6th 2014 the Dreadnought Cruiser was "rebooted". Its Ensign Tactical slot became an Ensign Universal slot and it gained one hangar bay pre-equipped with Type 8 shuttles (it can equip standard hangar pets of all types). In addition, the ship can now use the Saucer Separation and Antimatter Spread consoles from the Exploration Cruiser Refit and Exploration Cruiser Retrofit, and doing so will give the ship several bonuses, including one to its Turn Rate.
- A Fleet version of the Dreadnought Cruiser was released on March 6th 2014. The Fleet Dreadnought Cruiser utilizes the same Bridge Officer set up as the new Dreadnought Cruiser. In addition, the Fleet variation adds in a fourth Tactical Console.
