Abilities[edit | edit source]

Console[edit | edit source]

The Guardian 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 Cruiser and Fleet Guardian Cruiser, but can be put into any of their console slots. You may only equip one of these consoles.

Intelligence Seating[edit | edit source]

Although not strictly an Intelligence ship, the Guardian is equipped with hybrid seating for:

1 Lieutenant Engineering-Intelligence Lieutenant Engineering-Intelligence

Cruiser Commands[edit | edit source]

As a cruiser, this ship supports the following cruiser commands.

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
0-9 1 2 1 2 2
10-19 2 2 2 3 2
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 USS Redoubt, identified as a "Long Range Expeditionary Cruiser". While the USS Redoubt is no longer shown on the holographic display, it can still be found parked in orbit of Earth Spacedock in Earth System Space.
