Overview[edit | edit source]

Subsystem Targeting icon (Federation).png

Subsystem Targeting is a built-in capability of Science Vessels and Science Dreadnoughts, and on some Carriers. Specifically, the term Subsystem Targeting refers to a set of four space abilities that come as standard with these vessels. All four subsystem targeting abilities come standard with any science ship.

These abilities upgrade attacks from starship energy weapons. After activating a subsystem targeting ability, the user will gain a 10 second buff during which attacking an enemy ship with any form of energy weapon will cause a stacking power to that subsystem, and will have a small chance of completely taking the system offline. If the system is taken offline it renders all abilities that use that subsystem temporarily inert. For example, if you target the shields and subsequently take them offline, then all of the target's shield facings will go down.

These abilities do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier starships. Separate higher versions of these abilities can be gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities but these abilities do not upgrade the ship's built-in subsystem targeting abiltiies.
