Check out some of the ships and gear going on sale for a limited time only!
The Voth Heavy Fighter is an incredibly durable fighter craft that is among the most durable within its class. However, it sacrifices maneuverability for this additional level of survivability. The Voth Heavy Fighter has access to Integrated Hazard Emitters. This ability, like standard Hazard Emitters, will restore hull strength over time and will cleanse hazards. Unlike the bridge officer power, Integrated Hazard Emitters has a longer cooldown and can only target the caster.
This ability functions as normal Hazard Emitters do. It will heal your starship’s hull over time, grant a measure of damage resistance rating and cleanse any hazard effects. However, unlike standard Hazard Emitters, this ability can only target the caster and has a much longer cooldown time. To compensate, this ability is slightly stronger than Hazard Emitters 3.
The Aeon Timeships appear to be the same class as the Federation Timeship encountered by Captain Kathryn Janeway in 2373. The U.S.S. Voyager's encounter with one of these small crafts left them stranded in 1996. That same craft crashed in the High Sierras in 1967, where it was discovered by Henry Starling, who used the technology on the ship to drive Earth’s advancement in computers all through the late 20th century. The Federation's interest in these vessels cannot be understated.
The Aeon Timeships come with a Subatomic Deflector Array. This Deflector provides a small improvement to Starship Flow Capacitors, Particle Generators, Shield Systems and Shield Emitters. The Deflector also enables you to fire a Subatomic Disruptor. This devastating weapon fires a single massive sustained beam capable of breaking apart a target's molecular structure. It can be equipped on any small craft.
Recent conflicts with the Tholian Assembly have resulted in a handful of captured Tholian vessels. Tholian technology is very different from other Alpha Quadrant powers, and these vessels are prized as opportunities for study as well as new combat vessels. The Tholians' natural environment is hostile to most humanoids, and their ship interiors were designed to support that environment. Much effort has gone into simply modifying the interiors to let personnel board these vessels without environmental suits.
The Tholian Widow is small, nimble fighter. It comes with a Tetryon Beam Array and a Thermionic Torpedo Launcher. Thermionic Torpedoes are capable of draining the target's Weapon and Engine Subsystems with each hit, reducing its damage output and speed temporarily.
Ferengi Na'Far Shuttles provide profit-seekers an economic and stylish way to zip between investment opportunities at warp speed, without the overhead and crew costs of a full-size vessel. Although not equipped to stand toe-to-toe with most ships of the line, this stalwart vessel can hold its own against shuttles and fighters with ease. Fast and tough, it has bonus Hull Plating and Armor Reinforcements, bonus power to Engines, and is equipped with standard phaser defenses. It comes with a station for Ensign Universal Bridge Officer station.
In addition to its standard capabilities, Ferengi Shuttles come equipped with a Metaphasic Shield Array. Activating your Metaphasic Shield reroutes energy from all systems into shields, allowing the Na'Far shuttle to be extremely resistant to incoming damage while also converting a portion of that damage into additional shield power. Although the Metaphasic Shield only lasts a short amount of time, sometimes a few seconds is all you need to live to haggle another day!
In addition to these shuttles that will be 30% off, be sure to pick up some of this great gear going on sale.
Grab your shuttle and gear soon, since this sale warps away Monday June 2nd at 10AM PDT!
