The Varanus Fleet Support Vessel is a General (Tier 5) level Klingon Support Vessel. Players can obtain the vessel through the Shipyard for 20,000 Fleet Credits and 4 Fleet Ship Module icon.png, as long as the player's Fleet has a Tier III shipyard.

All vessels are able to use the [Console - Universal - Repair Platform] that is obtained from the Varanus Support Vessel. This ship does not come with one standard.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Varanus class[edit | edit source]

Varanus class
The Varanus class is of Gorn Hegemony design, which was absorbed into the Klingon Defense Force. The vessel has a long, narrow, compact design with warp nacelles mounted close to the primary hull.

Performance[edit | edit source]

More durable than the Varanus Support Vessel due to the extra Hull and Shield Strength afforded by being a Fleet vessel, the Fleet Varanus excels at the same support abilities the original Varanus is good at, making it one of the best choices for a Klingon Science captain. Rather oddly, the Fleet Varanus has an extra Tactical Console - an odd choice for such a Science-themed ship - especially odd considering the ship has only a single Lieutenant Tactical Bridge Officer slot.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Subsystem Targeting[edit source]

Science Vessels come with built-in subsystem targeting abilities. These abilities do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Science starships and must be gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities.

Activating a subsystem targeting ability will upgrade all energy weapons for the next 10 seconds. They will drain power from the foe's targeted subsystem, as well as have a chance to cause a subsystem offline for a short duration. If the system is taken offline, all abilities that use that subsystem will temporarily be rendered inert (for example, if the player targets shields and subsequently takes them offline, then all of the enemies shield facings will go down as well).

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.

Comparison with Standard Variant[edit | edit source]

Regular Variant Fleet Variant Difference
Consoles Console tac icon.png 2 Console tac icon.png 3
Hull Points 28,500 31,350 +10%
Shields 6,270 (Mk X) 6,897 (Mk X) +10%

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.
