Class variants

Class Information
Ship Variant - FED - Guardian Cruiser fore (T6).jpg
Guardian class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
Designed as a versatile Long Range Expeditionary Cruiser capable of accomplishing nearly any classification of mission, the Guardian-class Cruiser is an evolution of the Ambassador and Galaxy class style of starship. Entering into service in 2410 with a crew of 1100, the Guardian is a large starship, with a length of 780 meters, over 20% longer than the Galaxy class.
Ship Variant - FED - Guardian Cruiser Type 2 fore (T6).jpg
Guardian class
Type 2
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Type 2 variant of the Guardian class is more reminiscent of 24th-century starship design, with no "bumper" on its saucer, a smooth neck, and fewer raised structures on the secondary hull. The nacelle pylons are swept back and do not form a flat deck on the secondary hull, and there is no bifurcation on the Bussard collectors or nacelles, as well as individual nacelle symmetry. It also lacks the inner nacelles.

Terran variant
MATERIAL UNLOCK: Mirror Guardian Cruiser
The Terran Empire variant of the Guardian class is a mixture of the type 1 and 2 Federation variants, but with red Terran Empire livery (colors A6 -> A1). It utilizes the type 1 saucer, hull and inner nacelles, and the type 2 neck, stanchions and outer nacelles.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal console[edit | edit source]

The Guardian-class Cruiser comes equipped with a [Console - Universal - Particle Conversion Matrix]. When activated your shields will become significantly more durable allowing them to absorb even more damage for a short time. During this time any incoming enemy energy weapon fire has a high chance of boosting your own energy weapon and exotic damage output.

This console can only be equipped on the Guardian-class Cruiser and its fleet variant and Mirror Universe variant, but can be put into any of their console slots. You may only equip one of these consoles.

Specialization seating[edit source]

The Guardian-class Cruiser features the following specialist seats:

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.


Scaling starship[edit source]

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment slots[edit source]

As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, and science console slots will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Level Console tac icon.png Console eng icon.png Console sci icon.png Fore weapons Aft weapons

20-29 2 3 2 3 3
30-39 3 3 3 4 4
40+ 3 4 3

Hull strength[edit source]

This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.325 for the Guardian Cruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The design of the Guardian class is strongly reminiscent of production concept art of the Ambassador class, as well as the sculpture of the U.S.S. Enterprise-C seen on the wall of the Enterprise-D's briefing room in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
  • At one point in the past, the 3D holographic traffic control display of ships orbiting Earth Space Dock, located in the administration section of Earth Space Dock, near Captain Sulu, showed a Guardian-class starship, the U.S.S. Redoubt, identified as a "Long Range Expeditionary Cruiser". While the U.S.S. Redoubt is no longer shown on the holographic display, it can still be found parked in orbit of Earth Spacedock in Earth System Space.
