The Science Star Cruiser (T6) is a Vice Admiral (Tier 6) level Federation Cruiser and Flagship. It is the science variant of the Flagship Star Cruisers, also known as Yorktown-class. Players can obtain the vessel from the C-Store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png individually, for 6,000 Zen small icon.png as part of the T6 Odyssey Bundle, or for 12,000 Zen small icon.png as part of the T6 Cross Faction Flagship Bundle.

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]

Class Information
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 Zen small icon.png.
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 Zen small icon.png.

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.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

The Science Star Cruiser (T6) comes equipped with the Dampening Wave Emitter universal console, which is part of the Flagship Technologies Console Set.

Other consoles from this set can be equipped for set bonuses and additional abilities. They are available from the other Federation Flagship variants: Sojourner and Endeavour. It can also equip Krenim Science Vessel's console.

Like any other T6 variant of an existing T5 or lower-tier vessel, Science Star Cruiser (T6) can equip consoles available from T5 Odyssey variants: [Console - Universal - Chevron Separation] (available from the Odyssey Operations Cruiser), [Console - Universal - Work Bees] (available from the Odyssey Science Cruiser) and [Console - Universal - Aquarius Escort] (available from the Odyssey Tactical Cruiser). These three consoles are part of the Odyssey Cruiser Set.

Advanced Quantum Slipstream Drive[edit | edit source]

The Advanced Quantum Slipstream Drive ability allows the Yorktown class starship to travel at increased warp speed for 60 seconds instead of the normal 30 seconds in sector space.

Cruiser Commands[edit | edit source]

As a cruiser, this ship supports the following cruiser commands.

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.

Specialization Seating[edit | edit source]

The Yorktown Science Star Cruiser features one bridge officer specialist seat:

  • Lieutenant Commander Universal-Command Lieutenant Commander Universal-Command

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.

Scaling Starship[edit source]

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment Slot Scaling[edit source]

As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, and science console slots will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Level Console tac icon.png Console eng icon.png Console sci icon.png Fore weapons Aft weapons
0-9 0 3 2 2 2
10-19 1 3 2 3 2
20-29 1 4 3 3 3
30-39 2 4 3 4 4
40+ 2 5 4

Hull Strength Scaling[edit source]

This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.425 for the Science Star Cruiser (T6)), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
