The Gorn Varanus Fleet Support Vessel is a Tier 5 (Level 50) 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 Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer at their faction's home base for 20,000 Fleet Credits and 4 Fleet Ship Module icon.png, so long as the player's Fleet has a Tier III Shipyard and one Starbase Military Fleet Ship Provision. If the player already owns the Gorn Varanus Support Vessel from the Zen Store, the Fleet Ship Module cost is reduced to 1.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Klingon Empire Fleets have made further upgrades to the Varanus-class Support Vessels. These Fleet Starships are built to the highest standard and have increased Hull Hit Points, Shield Strength and an additional Tactical Console slot.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal consoles[edit | edit source]

The Gorn Varanus Fleet Support Vessel doesn't come equipped with any universal consoles.

However, it can equip [Console - Universal - Repair Platform] obtainable with the Varanus Support Vessel (T5).

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 Fleet 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.
