Overview[edit | edit source]
After the success of the Chimera Class Heavy Destroyer prototype, Utopia Plantia shipyard has decided to make further advancements upon the experimental design of the Heavy Destroyer. The result is the Manticore Class Heavy Destroyer.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
||In its default Regeneration Mode, the Chimera's structure features an integrated saucer and hull. The ship has a large deflector dish protruding from the bottom of the saucer. Four nacelles are attached to level pylons extending from the rear of the hull. Each nacelle is separated by a short pylon that retracts when in sector space, pulling together to form a more compact appearance.
The Chimera's most striking trait is by far the change in appearance enabled by the Dynamic Tactical System. The console effectively turns the Chimera into a "transformer", with three different appearances. When engaging Tactical Mode, the Chimera's saucer splits, with the outer edges expanding and locking into 3 sections. Portions in the middle of the saucer sink lower, pushing the lower saucer to partially obscure the deflector dish. The center portions of the saucer, near the bridge, also raise up to expose the Chimera's Phaser Lotus Array, and the rear pylons angle downwards to move the nacelles below the saucer.
When in Sector Space, the Chimera's pylons angle upwards, like those of a Long Range Science Vessel Retrofit.

Experimental Weapon[edit source]
The Manticore 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.
