The Inquiry-class Battlecruiser is a Tier 6 Battlecruiser which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. This starship can be used from any level upon completion of the tutorial experience. As you level up, this ship gains additional hull, weapon slots, and console slots.

Players can obtain this starship from a [Special Requisition Choice Pack - Tier 6 Promotional Ship Choice Pack], which are available during special promotional events. The boxed ship is not bound and so may be traded to other players or bought and sold on the Exchange for energy credits under the name [Special Requisition Pack - Inquiry Battlecruiser [T6]].

Overview[edit | edit source]

Initially coming to fame in 2399, with the actions of the USS Zheng He over the planet Coppelius, the Inquiry Battlecruiser was Starfleet’s most powerful ship for many years. The initial designs and technical breakthroughs of the ship were later used as the starting point for the Avenger-class project. Engineers at Utopia Planitia felt the time was right for another update to the Avenger line, and decided to return to the classic form, and name, of the Inquiry class.

The modern Inquiry Battlecruiser, like other ships of its lineage, are aggressive ships, designed to charge into head-on confrontations and come out unscathed. To further these goals, it comes equipped with a Variable Assault Deflector Array to ensure that it can come out swinging and shrug off any retaliation. This is further tied into its Cruiser Commands, to ensure that its team is as prepared as possible to follow it in its charge. Its sturdy construction and forward-facing weapons mountings round out the package, make it an intimidating sight to be staring down at. Those on the business end of an Inquiry often find their goals rapidly aligning with the Federation’s peaceful ideals.

Class variants

Class Information
Ship Variant - FED - Avenger Battlecruiser (T5).jpg
Avenger class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Avenger is compact, roughly the same size as a destroyer-class ship (such as the Chimera) and its hull features a thick, reinforced appearance. Visible weapon hardpoints appear around the edges of the saucer, revealing the Avenger's impressive forward armament, and the bridge is protected by two armored braces that merge with the neck, which like the design of the Odyssey class, is split into two.

The warp nacelles are blocky and rectangular in design, with optional fins for atmospheric stability. The deflector dish is heavily armored, and only exposes a small "lit" portion, unlike the larger, open dishes of other vessels. The Avenger sports few windows, and those that are present are recessed into armored niches that automatically seal up when the ship enters combat. Windows along the neck are set facing inward, to protect them from enemy fire.

OR Fleet Avenger Battlecruiser (T6), 20,000 Fleet Credits, 5 Fleet Ship Module icon.png

The Fleet refit of the Avenger class utilizes a pair of straight pylons that place the nacelles parallel to the secondary hull, rather than curving upward as on the standard Avenger class. Players may also select the "No Fins" nacelle variant.
Ship Variant - FED - Arbiter Battlecruiser (T6).jpg
Arbiter class
SKIN UNLOCK: Arbiter Battlecruiser, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
The Arbiter-class Battlecruiser was designed from the ground up to be durable enough to combat the Iconian threat while still being able to deliver punishing amounts of damage.

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 (1.45 for the Inquiry-class Battlecruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
