Science Vessel Retrofit
The Science Vessel Retrofit is an Admiral (Tier 5) level Federation Cruiser vessel. Players can obtain the vessel through the Shipyard for 200,000 , as long as the player's Fleet has a Tier III shipyard.
Variants[edit | edit source]
Nova class[edit | edit source]
The Nova class was designed for short-term planetary research missions. It was placed in service starting in the mid-to-late 24th century. It is not typically suitable for combat operations. In Star Trek canon, the Nova design has a maximum speed of warp 8 and approximately eighty crew members.
One unique feature of the Nova class is its Waverider shuttle, which is located in a special docking port on the ventral side of the primary hull, similar to that of the Aeroshuttle on the Intrepid-class. This feature has been omitted from the game however. The Nova Class also shares a nacelle design in-game with the Oslo Class Heavy Escort.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Subsystem Targeting[edit source]
The Science Vessel Retrofit 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.
- Target Auxiliary Subsystems I
- Target Weapons Subsystems I
- Target Engines Subsystems I
- Target Shields Subsystems I
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.
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.
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.
