The Gorn Varanus-class Support Vessel is a Tier 5 (Level 40) Science Vessel which may be flown by Klingon Defense Force characters, including Klingon Empire-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters.

Players can obtain this starship from the Zen Store for 2,000 Zen small icon.png under the name Varanus Support Vessel.

Purchasing this starship will unlock a Fleet Ship Module discount when purchasing the Gorn Varanus Fleet Support Vessel.  

This ship can also be obtained by Klingon Empire players for free upon reaching level 61 by using their free SRKDF5.png Starship Requisition token. 700-day Veterans will receive one of these tokens at level 50 as well. Note that obtaining this starship via the rank-up Starship Requisition token will not unlock it for your entire account, nor will it apply the fleet discount.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal consoles[edit | edit source]

The Gorn Varanus Support Vessel comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Repair Platform].

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 Gorn Varanus Support 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]

Klingon 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.
