The Efficient Impulse Engines is an Impulse Engine that provides a scaling power bonus to weapons, shields, and auxiliary systems.

Item Description[edit | edit source]

These utility engines drain less power than standard engines, which effectively increases the power levels of all other ship systems (Bonus to Weapons, Shields and Auxiliary). The lower your power level in a given system, the more of a bonus you get. This engine grants no bonus if your power level in a given system is above 75.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

The Efficient Impulse Engines is available as a reward for completing the Federation Mission: Faction Starfleet.png“Past Imperfect”, the Klingon Empire Mission: Faction Klingon.png“Second Star to the Right, Straight on 'til Morning”, or the Romulan Republic Mission: Faction Romulan Republic.png “Smash and Grab”

Power Bonus[edit | edit source]

The amount of power supplied to each of the Weapons, Shields, and Auxiliary subsystems varies inversely based on your ship's power settings. The buff only works for power settings below 75 (+0), being more powerful at 25 (+2.5) and scaling between.
