The Solanae Dyson Science Destroyer is a Rear Admiral (Tier 5) Science Destroyer. It was introduced as a limited-time reward for participating in the 4 Year Anniversary Event by collecting 1000 Anniversary Qmendations. It can also be obtained via the [Special Requisition Pack - Dyson Science Destroyer] available from the Lobi Crystal Consortium for 600 Lobi Crystal icon.png.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Solanae class[edit | edit source]

Solanae class

Though the Solanae class' lines and key traits follow standard Starfleet design principles - notably resembling the Fleet Avenger Battle Cruiser's profile - the incorporation of materials and technology discovered in the Solanae Dyson Sphere has given the vessel a distinct and unmistakable visual signature. The saucer and hull are constructed from large, overlapping plates, constructed from the same white, lattice-patterned material that makes up the Obelisk Carrier (another Sphere-derived ship). Elongated warp nacelles are placed at the ends of pylons level with the secondary hull, and rather than the common blue-and-red glow of Starfleet-standard nacelles, are lit purple, not unlike vessels equipped with the Jem'Hadar shield. The saucer itself is distinguished by a split design, with a gap in the bow revealing the Solanae's secondary deflector.

The Solanae's most dramatic visual change occurs when the vessel transitions to Tactical Mode in a transition not unlike that of the Chimera Heavy Destroyer. When transforming, the nacelles draw forward, compacting the ship's length, and are protected by armored plates. Similar plates extend to close the gap and hide the secondary deflector, while the emitters of the Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons extend from the forward edge of the saucer.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Solanae Dyson Science Destroyer can equip items from the Solanae Advanced Technologies set and gain access to special abilities. Equipping all four pieces from the set will empower abilities provided by consoles, which are obtained from Advanced Dyson Science Destroyers, C-Store variants of this vessel.

Tactical Mode[edit source]

A built-in Tactical Mode ability allows the Solanae Dyson Science Destroyer to switch between a default Science Mode and Tactical Mode.

Activating the Tactical Mode transforms the starship from a typical Science Vessel into a combat-oriented Destroyer. This disables most of advanced science systems while activating additional tactical systems:

  • Upgrades Lt. Commander Tactical Bridge Officer seat to Commander Tactical
  • Activates Solanae Dual Heavy Proton Cannons
  • +15 Weapon Power
  • +2 Turn Rate; +10% Impulse Speed; +20 Inertia

Tactical Mode may be deactivated at any time to return to the default Science Mode, but doing so incurs a 60 second cooldown on the transformation back to Tactical Mode.

Subsystem Targeting[edit source]

The Solanae Dyson Science Destroyer 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.

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]

These 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.
