Scryer Intel Science Vessel
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Scryer Intel Science Vessel is an agile ship of its class. It was designed to perform dangerous deep space espionage missions without being detected by the enemy. It is equipped with a Cloaking Device and Active Sensor Arrays. The former allows the starship to cloak while not in combat, and the latter allows intel craft to gather information about their target to expose a vulnerability in their defenses.
Tasked with high-risk surveillance, data collection, and combat support missions in the middle of hostile space, the Scryer-class sports a highly unusual profile. In its default configuration, the Scryer's primary hull is not a saucer but a ring, with hollow space separating an outer concentric hull from a smaller inner saucer. This layout is vaguely reminiscent of the inner ring and promenade structure of the Deep Space Nine space station, though obviously on a much smaller, more mobile scale.
The outer ring holds specialized equipment, recessed weapon mounts, and the Scryer's formidable active sensor array, while the inner saucer contains the bridge and living quarters. Both hulls blend into a tapered secondary hull that features long, low-profile baffled warp nacelles. The main deflector dish is located in a pod-like structure atop the secondary hull, which also houses the Scryer's active sensor probes and probe swarms.
The ship's basic hull material is black, with no visible windows, rendering the Scryer difficult to see against the background of space, if not for thin, blue running light strips and the bright deflector.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]
The Scryer Intel Science Vessel comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Sensor Probe Swarm].
Active Sensor Arrays[edit source]
As an Intelligence starship, the Scryer Intel Science Vessel is capable of deploying an Intel sensor drone with the Gather Intelligence ability.
While the target is Vulnerable, one of three Expose Vulnerability abilities can be used. These powerful abilities find a critical weakness in the targeted foe and allow players to briefly exploit it.
- Expose Vulnerability: Critical Systems
- Expose Vulnerability: Defenses
- Expose Vulnerability: Weapon Systems
Intelligence vessels also have a built-in passive ability which renders them undetectable at long range.
The Scryer Intel Science Vessel has a cloak that allows the ship to cloak when not in combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
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 Scryer Intel 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.
- 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.
Specialization Seating[edit | edit source]
The Scryer Intel Science Vessel features two specialist seats:

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The wall-display on left side of Admiral Quinn's office, while difficult to read, identifies a Scryer-class Intel Science Vessel U.S.S. Merlin as a "Covert Science Vessel".
