The Kelvin D7-class Heavy Destroyer is a Tier 6 Destroyer which may be flown by Klingon Defense Force characters, including Klingon Empire-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 the [Kelvin Divergence Lock Box]. 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 - Kelvin Timeline D7 Heavy Destroyer [T6]], as well as under [Special Requisition Pack - Kelvin Divergence Lockbox Ship Pack]. The choice box's contents depend on the player's faction; Klingon Empire players will receive the Kelvin D7 Heavy Destroyer when opening it.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Destroyers are frequently considered to be the mid-point between Escorts and Cruisers in terms of manuverability and survivability. They have seven weapon slots, and endgame destroyers can equip Experimental Weapons.

In the midst of the confrontations currently raging across multiple eras in the primary timeline, there have also been incidents of incursions into entirely alternate realities. One such breach has resulted in many artifacts and technological oddities from another timeline getting pulled into our own. A closer examination of this timeline reveals that it is a divergent reality that split from our own as a result of a confrontation in the 23rd Century, between an unknown Romulan vessel that had been displaced from the time stream, and a Federation starship - the U.S.S. Kelvin. As a result of this temporal incursion, the entire timeline that followed those events has come to be called the "Kelvin Timeline."

Examination of the time-lost salvage taken from the Kelvin Timeline reveals that the Federation of that reality had a decidedly higher emphasis on military technologies, likely as a direct result of their overwhelming defeat at the hands of the alien vessel that invaded their space in the 23rd Century. The same has shown to be true of the Klingon and Romulan ships of that time. This emphasis on cutting-edge technology allows their starships and equipment to be comparable to starships of the early 25th Century Prime Universe, despite technically being hundreds of years old. A small group of industrious scientists have taken it upon themselves to replicate these designs, and distribute them throughout the modern era.

The D7 Heavy Destroyer is a fearsome starship, originating from the Klingons of the Kelvin Timeline. It makes good use of a Battle Cloaking device to stealthily enter a fight, sturdy defensive capabilities should the battle go long, a strong point defense system to allow the crew to focus on the real threats, and an Advanced Engagement System to prepare the ship for an honorable charge into the fray.

Universal consoles[edit | edit source]

The Kelvin D7 Heavy Destroyer comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Advanced Engagement System].

Specialization seating[edit source]

The Kelvin D7-class Heavy Destroyer features the following specialist seats:

  • Lieutenant Commander Tactical-Command Lieutenant Commander Tactical/Command 
  • Lieutenant Commander Engineering-Pilot Lieutenant Commander Engineering/Pilot

Battle Cloak

The Kelvin D7 Heavy Destroyer has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Experimental Weapon[edit source]

The Kelvin D7 Heavy Destroyer comes with an Experimental Weapon slot. This additional slot does not fit standard weapons. Unlike standard starship weapons, Experimental weapons are not affected by weapon firing modes, such as those granted by bridge officer abilities.

Standard configuration[edit | edit source]

Klingon 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 3 2 0 3 1
10-19 3 2 1 4 1
20-29 4 3 1 4 2
30-39 4 3 2 5 2
40+ 5 4 2

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 (1.25 for the Kelvin D7 Heavy Destroyer), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
