The Lafayette-class Recon Destroyer is a Tier 6 Destroyer 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 the Zen Store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png under the name Lafayette-class Recon Destroyer (T6). This ship can be purchased individually, or as part of the Cross Faction Recon Bundle [T6] for 4,000 Zen small icon.png.

Purchasing this starship will unlock a Fleet Ship Module discount when purchasing the Fleet New Orleans Recon Destroyer.

Overview[edit | edit source]

In these trying times, constant conflict and ever-present hostility have made exploration and reconnaissance at the edges of the frontier an even more dangerous endeavor than normal. The Recon Destroyer has been designed in response to this galactic atmosphere, providing a distinct combat-focus to a ship that is otherwise dedicated to scientific study and intelligence gathering.

The Lafeyette-class is a modern re-design of the classic New Orleans-class, which first came into service with Starfleet in the mid-2300s. The ship is 382.6 meters long.

Class variants[edit | edit source]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal consoles[edit | edit source]

The Lafayette Recon Destroyer comes with [Console - Universal - Hyper-focusing Trinary Arrays], which can be equipped on any starship:

Experimental Weapon[edit source]

The Lafayette-class Recon 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.

Specialization seating

The Lafayette-class Recon Destroyer features the following specialist seats:

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

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment slots and seating[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, science console slots and available bridge officer (boff) abilities will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

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 (0.9 for the Lafayette-class Recon Destroyer), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
