The Nov-class Dyson Science Destroyer is a Tier 5 (Level 40) Science Destroyer which may be flown by Klingon Defense Force characters and their allies, excluding Klingon Empire-aligned Romulan Republic characters.

Players can obtain this starship from the Lobi Crystal Consortium for 600 Lobi Crystal icon.png.  The choice box's contents depend on the player's faction; Klingon Empire players will receive the Nov Dyson Science Destroyer when opening it.

The Nov-class was first introduced as a limited-time reward for participating in the 4 Year Anniversary Event by collecting 1000 [Anniversary Qmendation]. Players who claimed this ship or its Federation or Klingon Empire counterparts from that event may reclaim it now on all Klingon Defense Force and Jem'Hadar-aligned KDF characters on their account via the Event Reputation Account Reward Claim tab.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Dyson Joint Command’s engineering and scientific efforts within the Solanae Dyson Sphere have yielded incredible results. The Romulan Republic, Klingon Defense Force, and Federation have all been able to adapt the astonishing technologies found within this artificial celestial structure to their own ends.

Dyson Science Destroyers were designed to withstand harsh conditions inside the Solanae Dyson Sphere

The Nov-class Dyson Science Destroyer is one of the Joint Command's newest vessels inspired by designs found within the Solanae Dyson Sphere, but adapted to suit the needs of Klingon Empire without the required use of Omega Particles. These starships are first and foremost a Science Vessel, but are capable of entering Tactical Mode to significantly alter their performance.

The use of the word "Nov" — the Klingon word for "Alien" — as a class designation is telling, as the Nov's smooth, rounded surfaces and white-and-purple coloration (brought by the incorporation of Solanae Dyson Sphere materials and technology into the design) feel almost at odds with the more pragmatic, rustic design sensibilities favored by the Klingon, Nausicaan, Orion, and Gorn shipbuilders that make up the KDF fleet.

The Nov class most closely resembles the Peghqu'-class Heavy Destroyer. A dramatic visual change occurs when the Tactical Mode is activated - the dorsal dome closes to protect the secondary deflector, ship's nacelles retract, shortening their length slightly, and armored panels slide out to shield their exposed "glow" portions. The Nov's Proton Dual Heavy Cannons then swing outward from the leading edges of the pylons.

Class variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - KDF - Nov Dyson Science Destroyer (T5).png
Nov class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Nov class resembles the Peghqu' class in general profile, with a tubular fuselage terminating in a bulbous "head", flanked by straight, wing-like pylons capped by long nacelles. Where the Peghqu' houses its Lotus emitter, the Nov mounts a dome-like structure that contains the ship's secondary deflector.
Ship Variant - KDF - Chontay Dyson Science Destroyer (T5).png
Chontay class
SKIN UNLOCK: Chontay Dyson Tactical Science Destroyer, 2,500 Zen small icon.png
The Chontay-class is a tactical-oriented variant of the original Klingon Dyson Science Destroyer. Its dark hull material and additional cannon muzzles underneath the "head" section boost the Chontay's already aggressive, ready for combat appearance.
Ship Variant - KDF - MoQ Dyson Science Destroyer (T5).png
MoQ class
SKIN UNLOCK: MoQ Dyson Battle Science Destroyer, 2,500 Zen small icon.png
The MoQ class is an engineering-oriented variant. Closest in appearance to the Nov class, the MoQ bridges the design difference between the Chontay class and the Ta'Sub classes with its mostly white hull plating and only a few black accents on the ship's nacelles, mission pod and "neck" section.
Ship Variant - KDF - Ta'Sub Dyson Science Destroyer (T5).png
Ta'Sub class
SKIN UNLOCK: Ta'Sub Dyson Command Science Destroyer, 2,500 Zen small icon.png
The Ta'Sub class is a more science-oriented variant of the original Klingon Dyson Science Destroyer. Its science focus is reflected in its pitch white hull plating. The ship is stubbier when compared to other variants, with shorter warp nacelles and wider "neck" section.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal consoles[edit | edit source]

The Nov Dyson Science Destroyer doesn't come equipped with any universal consoles.

However, it can equip [Console - Universal - Protonic Shield Matrix], [Console - Universal - Shield Inversion Projector] and [Console - Universal - Proton Destabilizer Module] which form the Solanae Advanced Technologies Set. This consoles are obtainable with Dyson Battle Science Destroyer (T5), Dyson Command Science Destroyer (T5) and Dyson Tactical Science Destroyer (T5), but can also be equipped on the Nov Dyson Science Destroyer. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.

Cloak

The Nov Dyson Science Destroyer has a cloak that allows the ship to cloak when not in combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Sensor Analysis[edit source]

Sensor Analysis is an active toggle ability. While maintaining a Sensor Lock on a target, the player gains a stacking effect that either improves the damage and power drain against an enemy, or improves any heal directed towards an ally. This effect stacks every 3 seconds, to a maximum of 6 stacks after 18 continuous seconds. To maintain the desired effect, the player must hold the sensor lock.

Subsystem Targeting[edit source]

The Nov Dyson Science Destroyer 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.

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.

Activating the Tactical Mode hides the destroyer's secondary deflector and reveals frontal heavy cannons
Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons are fused into a Fore weapon slot and can only be fired while in Tactical Mode

Tactical Mode[edit source]

A built-in Tactical Mode ability allows the Nov Dyson Science Destroyer to switch between a default Science Mode and Tactical Mode.

Activating the Tactical Mode transforms the starship from a typical Science Vessel into a combat-oriented Destroyer. This disables most of advanced science systems while activating additional tactical systems:

  • Upgrades Lt. Commander Tactical Bridge Officer seat to Commander Tactical
  • Activates Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons
  • +15 Weapon Power
  • +2 Turn Rate; +10% Impulse Speed; +20 Inertia

Tactical Mode may be deactivated at any time to return to the default Science Mode, but doing so incurs a 60 second cooldown on the transformation back to Tactical Mode.

Dyson Science Destroyers can use standard Klingon ship materials

Special features[edit | edit source]

The Nov Dyson Science Destroyer comes equipped with the following unique items:

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.
