Federation Science Vessel (Mob)
- You may be looking for the playable version of the Federation Science Vessel.
The Federation Science Vessel is a Starfleet vessel. Science vessels are not as hard-hitting as escorts or cruisers, but perform excellently in a support role. They have the strongest shields of any cruiser-level ship.
The appearance of the Federation Science Vessel depends on its level, though its armament and abilities remain the same.
