The Prototype Light Exploration Cruiser is a Lieutenant (Tier 1) level Cruiser. This ship is available to Federation and Federation-aligned players from the Cryptic store for 1,500 Zen small icon.png, or as part of the Age of Discovery Starter Pack.

Overview[edit | edit source]

In 2221, when ships of this class first entered service, the Walker-class Prototype Light Exploration Cruiser was considered to be one of the powerhouses leading the Federation into the future, designed to be effective in as wide a variety of missions as Starfleet needs.

However, by the beginning of the Federation-Klingon War, only a small number of Walker-class starships were still in active service, while the majority of them had already been decommissioned. With the sudden escalation of full scale war with the Klingon Empire, the Admiralty began evaluating all of its mothballed hulls to determine how quickly they could be readied for active service. At the top of the list to be re-activated were the existing reserve of Walker-class starships.

Per Admiral Cornwell's instructions, these ships have been offered to junior officers ready for their first command.

Available for use as soon as it can be purchased – as early as leaving the Tutorial – the Walker-class offers Hull and Shield values that continue to scale up with you as you continue your career. In this way, it offers you the choice to not need to trade out your ship until you are more comfortable with the game, and have a deeper understanding of what such an important choice means to your gameplay experience. This starship will scale in this manner until you reach Level 30, at which point it will be comparable to any other C-Store purchased Tier 4 vessel.

Hull scaling[edit | edit source]

The Prototype Light Exploration Cruiser has a hull modifier of 1.15, meaning its unmodified hull is 10,000×1.15=11500. Its hull scales with the player's level, increasing by 5% per level until the player reaches level 30, whereupon the multiplier will be 2.5×, for a maximum of 28750.
