The Olympic-class Research Science Vessel is a Tier 3 (Level 20) Science Vessel which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters.

Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 20,000 Refined dilithium icon.png.  

This ship can also be obtained by Federation players for free upon reaching level 20 by using their free SRFED3.png Starship Requisition token.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Olympic patch.png

All three classes of the Research Science Vessel are very distinct in appearance. They have, unlike most Starfleet vessels, a spherical main hull rather than the typical saucer style and their pylons which lead to the nacelles are connected to the fore section of the secondary hull in an up-swept fashion. The nacelles are also very long, typically spanning the full length of the secondary hull.

Class variants

Class Information
Ship Variant - FED - Olympic Research Science Vessel (T3).jpg
Olympic class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
Olympic patch.png

The Olympic class was initially designed as a hospital ship capable of warp 13, but was refitted for service in general scientific missions. The Olympic class is the smallest of the Research Science Vessels. One of the most well-known vessels of this class is the U.S.S. Pasteur under the command of Captain Beverly Crusher.
Ship Variant - FED - Hope Research Science Vessel (T3).jpg
Hope class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Hope class is the only one of the three that doesn't have a fully spherical main hull. The main hull has been compressed on the sides giving more of a yo-yo appearance. Its secondary hull follows the same compressed design.
Ship Variant - FED - Horizon Research Science Vessel (T3).jpg
Horizon class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Horizon-class Research Vessel has a unique shielded area of its primary hull. The section of the ship will glow in a pulse fashion from blue to white. It has a fairly curved secondary hull and is much larger at the aft section than the fore, giving a head-neck-body appearance.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

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 Olympic Research Science Vessel 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.

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.
