The Tholian Iktomi is a Rear Admiral (Tier 6) level scaling Science Vessel. This ship is available to players of all factions from the Lobi Crystal Consortium for 900 . It can also be found on the exchange.
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.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Recent conflicts with the Tholian Assembly have resulted in a handful of captured Tholian vessels. Tholian technology is very different from other Alpha Quadrant powers, and these vessels are prized as opportunities for study as well as new combat vessels. The Tholians' natural environment is hostile to most humanoids, and their ship interiors were designed to support that environment. Much effort has gone into simply modifying the interiors to let personnel board these vessels without environmental suits.
Retrofitting of the Tholian Iktomi-class likewise started in a redesign of the lattice structures to compensate for required changes elsewhere on the starship. On the Iktomi-class, the resulting improvements were most visible in improved communication pathing and better structural integrity. Those optimizations in turn allowed for higher limiters on the impulse engines and freed up more power for the ship’s shield generators.
To ensure the new experimental optimizations, re-designs, and remaining Tholian technology worked together, a part of the team performed incredible feats and set up an increased number of safeguards around the ship. As a result of this work and the safeguards put in place, the ship has become a much more resilient testbed for field experiments. At the same time, another part of the team worked on improving direct control capabilities. This work, starting from the bridge and reaching all across the ship, significantly increased the effectiveness of the ship’s communication and fire control centers, making it more of a commanding presence on the battlefield.
While performing this work and experimentation on such a distinctly alien ship, the team made significant use of photonic technology, both to safely explore areas of the ship that might still have a hostile environment, and to augment the team’s relatively small size. Continuous minor improvements made during this process, combined with the learning acquired from a complete bridge overhaul, have significantly increased the utility of the Photonic Officer on starship bridges. While these upgrades are most notable on ships with similar bridge configurations to the Tholian Iktomi, the applications of them are general enough to be noticeable on any starship.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]
The Tholian Iktomi comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Enhanced Tholian Web Generator].
This ability is part of the Tholian Technologies Set, which also includes [Console - Universal - Enhanced Tholian Tetryon Grid] and [Console - Universal - Tholian Web Cannon] obtainable with Tholian Jorogumo Carrier (T6) and Tholian Tarantula Dreadnought Cruiser (T6), but also equippable on the Tholian Iktomi. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.
Equipping all four consoles unlocks the following active ability:
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 Tholian Iktomi 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.
Special Features[edit | edit source]
The Tholian Iktomi comes equipped with [Thermionic Torpedo Launcher] which has a chance to drain weapon and engine power from the targeted foe.
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.
Scaling starship[edit source]
This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.
Equipment slots[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:
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 (1.05 for the Tholian Iktomi), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
