Heavy Cruiser Refit
The Heavy Cruiser Refit is a Commander (Tier 3) level Federation Cruiser. This is one of the few Starfleet ship designs to have more than two nacelles. These cruisers are much more capable than a normal Cruiser.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The recent Refit of Starfleet's Heavy Cruiser extends the life of one of the oldest ships in the fleet. This workhorse of the Federation has been used for the past 125 years for everything from deep space exploration, transport, blockade and patrol missions. It is one of the few Starfleet designs to have more than two nacelles.
The Heavy Cruiser Refit comes equipped with a [Console - Universal - Warp Burst Capacitor]. This unique piece of equipment allows you to execute a short-duration high-warp burst that confuses enemy sensors into thinking there are two versions of your vessel for a short period of time. This quick burst of coherent warp travel facilitates a Federation tactic known colloquially as the "The Picard Maneuver." The Picard Maneuver grants you a few moments of untargetable status, and moves your ship a good distance forward along your current trajectory in an instant. It also offers you a noticeable tactical advantage. You will be granted a short duration ambush damage bonus immediately after the warp burst.
Variants[edit | edit source]
Constellation class[edit | edit source]Constellation class borrows heavily from 23rd Century starship technology and design aesthetics, such as the Miranda and Constitution-classes. The Constellation-class U.S.S. Stargazer is perhaps the best-known ship of the class, being the first command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
Cheyenne class[edit | edit source]canon starship designs to feature four nacelles. Cheyenne class ships fought in the Battle of Wolf 359 and the appearance in TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II" remains the only time that this design has been seen on screen.
Dakota class[edit | edit source]Starfleet. The design is an off shoot of the Cheyenne class but sports a much narrower saucer section.
Stargazer class[edit | edit source]Constellation class USS Stargazer (NCC-2893). This class design was put into production after the Dominion War to replace lost ships during that time. The design is similar to the Dakota class but has a much more modern hull and nacelles.
