The Somerville-class Intel Science Vessel is a Tier 6 Science Vessel which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. This starship can be used from any level upon completion of the tutorial experience. As you level up, this ship gains additional hull, weapon slots, and console slots.

Players can obtain this starship from the Zen Store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png. This ship can be purchased individually, or as part of the Cross Faction Intel Science Bundle [T6] for 6,000 Zen small icon.png.

Purchasing this starship will unlock a Fleet Ship Module discount when purchasing the Fleet Hernandez Intel Science Vessel.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Somerville-class Intel Science Vessel is a design for the core of Starfleet's values. This vessel is equipped for exploration, scientific missions, and information gathering. However, the realities of a dangerous galaxy also require this vessel to be a combat capable vessel, and as such this vessel features powerful defensive shielding, a standard Starfleet compliment of ship weaponry, and powerful deflector dishes to literally manipulate the battlefield as needed.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal consoles[edit | edit source]

The Somerville Intel Science Vessel comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Mycelial Spore Burst].

Specialization seating

The Somerville-class Intel Science Vessel features the following specialist seats:

Active Sensor Arrays

As an Intelligence starship, the Somerville 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.

Intelligence vessels also have a built-in passive ability which renders them undetectable at long range.


The Somerville-class 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 Somerville-class 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.

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.

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

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

Equipment slots and seating[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, science console slots and available bridge officer (boff) abilities will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Hull strength[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 (0.85 for the Somerville-class Intel Science Vessel), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

Hull scaling table
Level Multiplier Hull HP Level Multiplier Hull HP Level Multiplier Hull HP Level Multiplier Hull HP

T6-X upgrade

By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Somerville-class Intel Science Vessel may be upgraded to T6-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait. Note that upgrading the Fleet Hernandez Intel Science Vessel, the fleet version of the Somerville Intel Science Vessel, will not apply the upgrade to this starship.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Somerville and Hernandez-classes are collaborations with IDW Publishing. The Hernandez is presumably named for the illustrator of the comic, Angel Hernandez, and/or Erika Hernandez, captain of Columbia (NX-02).[1]
  • The Hernandez first appeared in IDW's Star Trek: Discovery Annual 2018.
