Class variants

Class Information

Galaxy class

Starfleet's top-of-the-line vessel in the mid-24th century, the most prominent Exploration Cruiser variant is the Galaxy class, which was the flagship of the fleet when it was first introduced in the late 2350s. The most well known Galaxy-class vessel was the USS Enterprise-D, commanded by Captain Jean-Luc Picard. This is the shortest Exploration Cruiser variant, but the best known.

Celestial class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free, but only available on Tier 4 Exploration Cruiser variants
The design of the Celestial class has components reminiscent of the Ambassador class line of Starfleet cruisers. Distinguishing differences between the Celestial- and Ambassador-class designs are the straight pylons, conical warp nacelles and engineering hull, and the thicker saucer.

Envoy class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free, but only available on Tier 4 Exploration Cruiser variants
The Envoy variant is the longest of the three. The saucer and and neck are also the largest. The pylons are slightly banked and are forked toward the nacelle area. The ship is significantly bulkier than the other variants which feature smooth hulls. Its nacelles are less armored than the others with a field grille covering the bottom end of the nacelle.
Federation Exploration Cruiser (Monarch).png
Monarch class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free with any T5 or T6 Exploration Cruiser variant
Though similar in layout to the Galaxy, the Monarch class takes on harder edges, banked nacelles, and other structural changes throughout the spaceframe, incorporating lessons learned from its older siblings' 50 years of service. It is also tied with the Venture Class for the largest variant of the Exploration Cruiser line.

Venture class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free with this starship
Based on the Galaxy-class design, the Venture class represents the pinnacle in Starship design. It has a longer more swept neck, and a more faceted main deflector. It also bears details reminiscent of the Sovereign class, such as the raised V-shaped platform on the primary hull detail, and a whiter-colored hull with darker markings. It is also tied with the Monarch class for the largest Exploration Cruiser variant.

Andromeda class development patch.png

Following the success of the Pathfinder class in Operation Delta Rising, Starfleet Corps of Engineers teams at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards began work on updates of other core ship designs in the Federation fleet. The Andromeda-class Exploration Cruiser is the first ship from this effort to be released to Starfleet captains. An update of the famed Galaxy class that was the flagship of Starfleet in the mid-24th century, the Andromeda incorporates updated technology developed to give this ship improved capabilities for the difficult challenges Starfleet faces in the months ahead.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Venture-class design appears to be based on Andrew Probert's original concept drawings for the Enterprise-D.
  • On 6 March 2014, the Exploration Cruiser Refit became part of a special bundle with the Exploration Cruiser Retrofit and the Dreadnought Cruiser. The Anti-Matter Spread Console bundled here can be used in unison with the Exploration Cruiser Retrofit's Saucer Separation Console to give special bonuses and both can be used on any Exploration Cruiser variant.
  • The Galaxy-class Exploration Cruiser was remodeled in April 2015 to more closely match her canon appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Players were also given the option to fit Galaxy-class ships with upgraded nacelles to match the appearance of the Venture class' namesake from the DS9 episode "The Way of the Warrior".
