Overview[edit | edit source]
The Jem'Hadar Vanguard Carrier supports the Vanguard Fleet. This enormous vessel acts as a mobile assault base for the launch and repair of other vessels, while also providing support and tactical superiority.
The Vanguard Fleet is the personal detachment of Dominion starships and soldiers that accompany the changeling known as Odo. As one of the few Founders with an affinity for life as a solid, he has been placed in command of this fleet in an effort to combat the re-emerging Hur'q threat.
The ship comes equipped with two Jem'Hadar vanguard gunboats.

Subsystem Targeting[edit source]
The Jem'Hadar Vanguard Carrier 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.
- Target Auxiliary Subsystems I
- Target Weapons Subsystems I
- Target Engines Subsystems I
- Target Shields Subsystems I
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.
Vanguard Wingmen[edit source]
As a Vanguard starship, the Jem'Hadar Vanguard Carrier is issued two loyal Jem'Hadar ace pilots. These expert pilots fly their own Jem'Hadar Vanguard Heavy Raiders in formation with the player. Their extensive experience in team-based tactics allow them to execute powerful maneuvers.
Jem'Hadar Vanguards can perform the following maneuvers:
All maneuvers share a cooldown, and only one may be active at a time. Wingmen may not be ordered to attack specific targets, but will instead rapidly update their targeting parameters based on the player's chosen target.
If destroyed in combat, each Wingman will automatically rejoin the player after a short lockout period has passed.
Standard configuration[edit | edit source]
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.
