The Fleet Nimbus-class Deep Space Science Vessel is a Tier 5 (Level 50) Science Vessel which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters.

Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 20,000 Fleet Credits and 4 Fleet Ship Module icon.png, so long as the player's Fleet has a Tier I Shipyard and one Starbase Military Fleet Ship Provision.

overview[edit | edit source]

Designed with a rekindled interest of space exploration after the Dominion Wars, this vessel is equipped with many tools necessary to chart the stars and guide Starfleet into a new age of discovery. The Deep Space Science Vessel has extra Engineering facilities made necessary to make its own repairs or act as a support ship for fleets.

Class variants

Class Information
Ship Variant - FED - Trident Deep Space Science Vessel (T5).jpg
Trident class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Trident is a long triangular shaped vessel similar in design to the Oracle class. It has a slightly more abrasive and larger hull than the two other classes of this starship type.
Ship Variant - FED - Oracle Deep Space Science Vessel (T5).jpg
Oracle class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
Similar to the Trident class, it has a long triangular shaped main hull rather than a typical saucer section found on most other Federation vessels. Its two nacelles are located at the aft section of the vessel connect to the main hull by small horizontal pylons.
Ship Variant - FED - Destiny Deep Space Science Vessel (T5).jpg
Destiny class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
It is the smallest of the three classes of Deep Space Science Vessel, sporting a much rounder primary hull, and two pylons connecting the secondary deflector assembly to the primary hull.
Ship Variant - FED - Fleet Nimbus Deep Space Science Vessel (T5).jpg
Nimbus class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free with this starship
The Nimbus is a variant of the Destiny Class, and very distinctive from the others. Its hull is more armored and its overall length is a bit shorter. Nacelles sport a Klingon-like design instead of the normal Federation soft curves.

The nacelles can be either parallel to the pylons, which is the default, or parallel to the rest of the starship by selecting the "N Modified" option in the tailor.

This class was previously available as an extra ship skin in the Zen Store, but as of Season 7 is exclusive to the Fleet Deep Space Science Vessel. Players who purchased the skin prior to the Season 7 update may still use the Nimbus skin on any Patrol Escorts they own.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Sensor Analysis[edit source]

Sensor Analysis is an active toggle ability. While maintaining a Sensor Lock on a target, the player gains a stacking effect that either improves the damage and power drain against an enemy, or improves any heal directed towards an ally. This effect stacks every 3 seconds, to a maximum of 6 stacks after 18 continuous seconds. To maintain the desired effect, the player must hold the sensor lock.

Subsystem Targeting[edit source]

The Fleet Nimbus Deep Space Science Vessel comes with built-in Subsystem Targeting abilities. These built-in abilities stay at Rank I and do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Science starships. They are separate from Subsystem Targeting abilities gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities.

Activating a subsystem targeting ability will upgrade all energy weapons to inflict a stacking power drain on the foe's targeted subsystem for the next 10 seconds. They will also have a small chance to knock the targeted subsystem offline for a short duration.

Standard configuration[edit | edit source]

Federation starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.
