Overview[edit | edit source]
The Yorktown Class Science Star Cruiser represents the pinnacle of Starfleet engineering. Of the Flagship Star Cruisers the Yorktown Class has a strong science focus, featuring more science bridge officer seating and science console slots than the other Star Cruiser variants, and is able to carry out Sensor Analysis. These massive starships are incredibly resilient, but slow to maneuver.
Of all the Federation Star Cruisers the Yorktown class most closely resembles the Odyssey class. It shares the same sleek lines and split saucer pylons of its predecessor but features larger impulse engines and warp nacelles. The nacelles, with their unique fin design, help the Yorktown maximise efficiency when travelling both at normal warp and in slipstream.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
||The Endeavour-class features a more angular design, with a triangular saucer section closer to those of the Advanced Escorts and Presidio Class Battlecruiser than the other Flagships. Unlike on its sister ships, the impulse engines on the Endeavour's saucer section are designed to be operational even when the saucer section is docked to the primary hull, slightly improving its speed and manoeuvrability. However, it features the split saucer pylons and large hanger bay found on all Federation Flagships of its generation. The Endeavour class skin is unlocked with the purchase of the Tactical Star Cruiser (T6) for 3,000 .|
||With its oval saucer section and bulky warp nacelles the Sojourner-class is reminiscent of the famous Galaxy-class cruiser. However, it still bears all the key characteristics of the Odyssey-class on which its design is based. The ship has a larger internal volume than any of the other Federations Flagships giving it vast cargo and passenger space combined with the durability and combat performance of its sister ships. The Sojourner class skin is unlocked with the purchase of the Operations Star Cruiser (T6) for 3,000 .|
|| The first in a new generation of Federation starship's, the original Odyssey class introduced split saucer pylons with the aim of reducing subspace wake at higher warp speeds. The Odyssey is designed as an extreme long-range vessel, and can operate for long periods of time away from support. The U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-F) is the most famous ship in this class.
This class skin is available for free to all Tier 6 Star Cruisers.

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.
