Specialization: Strategist

From Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
The Strategist specialization is built around the Threatening Stance captain ability.
The Strategist Specialization tree.

Experts in developing and adapting battlefield plans, Strategists are prized for their ability to react to the conditions of multi-ship combat.


The Strategist Specialization is a Secondary Captain Specialization released with Season 11.5. Skilled Strategists are masters of planning military action, issuing orders to anticipate and match the ever-changing flow of battle. The Strategist Specialization embraces this fluidity, offering a selection of abilities which can shift between offensive and defensive effects at will.
