The Exploration Cruiser Refit is a Captain (Tier 4) level Federation Cruiser vessel. The Exploration Cruiser Refit is a new variant that can only be purchased on the C-Store for 1,500 Zen small icon.png. Purchasing the Exploration Cruiser Refit unlocks the Venture class skin on all Exploration Cruiser variants (the Exploration Cruiser, Exploration Cruiser Retrofit, Dreadnought Cruiser, Fleet Exploration Cruiser Retrofit and Fleet Dreadnought Cruiser) thereafter.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Galaxy class[edit | edit source]

Galaxy class
Galaxy patch.png

The ship of legend...and canon. The Galaxy class was made popular by the multiple-award winning series Star Trek: The Next Generation. This is the shortest Exploration Cruiser variant, but the most iconic.

Celestial class[edit | edit source]

Celestial class

The Celestial Class has stylings of the canon Ambassador-class starship U.S.S. Enterprise-C. However, the pylons are straight instead of banked and it is much longer. Its saucer has a dome-like appearance at the top. The nacelles feature a barrel shape with a conical contour which is constrained in the front and enlarged toward the back.

Envoy class[edit | edit source]

Envoy class

The Envoy variant is the longest of the original three variants, with the largest saucer and neck. The pylons are slightly banked and are forked toward the nacelle area. The ship is significantly bulkier than the other variants, which feature smooth hulls. Its nacelles are less armored than the others with a field grille covering the bottom end of the nacelle.

Venture class[edit | edit source]

Venture class

Based on the Galaxy class design, but much larger (it is the largest of these four starships) , the Venture Class represents the pinnacle of starship design. It has a longer more swept neck, and a more faceted main deflector. It also bears details reminiscent of the Sovereign class, such as the raised V-shaped platform on the primary hull detail, and a whiter-colored hull with darker markings.

The Venture-class design appears to be based on Andrew Probert's original concept drawings for the Enterprise-D.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • On 6 March 2014, the Exploration Cruiser Refit became part of a special bundle with the Exploration Cruiser Retrofit and the Dreadnought Cruiser. The Anti-Matter Spread Console bundled here can be used in unison with the Exploration Cruiser Retrofit's Saucer Separation Console to give special bonuses and both can be used on any Exploration Cruiser variant.
  • The Galaxy-class Exploration Cruiser was remodeled in April 2015 to more closely match her canon appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Players were also given the option to fit Galaxy-class ships with upgraded nacelles to match the appearance of the Venture class' namesake from the DS9 episode "The Way of the Warrior".
