This Efficient Impulse Engines used to have +5 to Weapons, Shields, and Auxiliary. Many players previously used these engines all the way to Admiral level, due to turn rate and additional power to non-engine power; however, changes to these were made so that they now have a variable power increase inversely proportional to your power setting (similar to increased efficiency for weapon, shield, and auxiliary systems).

Base Flight Changes Table[edit | edit source]

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.

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.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

Players can acquire this engine only as a reward from the missions Faction Starfleet.png“Past Imperfect”, Faction Klingon.png “Second Star to the Right, Straight on 'til Morning”, or Faction Romulan Republic.png “Smash and Grab”. Replaying these missions at a higher level will net you a level-appropriate Mark of this engine, up to Mk XI. The power level increase, however, remains the same.
