Console – Universal – Enhanced Dynamic Tactical System


The Heavy Destroyer is similar to an Escort, but has many qualities of Light Cruisers and Science Vessels. While in its innate Regenerative Mode, excess power is transferred to the Auxiliary System and you gain a bonus to Starship Shield Systems. It comes equipped with a prototype Enhanced Dynamic Tactical System console (or EDTS). This console allows you to transform your ship between Regenerative Mode and Tactical Mode.

In Regenerative Mode, your Tachyon Inversion Beam is enabled, which can siphon shields from multiple targets. Activating Tactical Mode transfers power to your Weapon Systems, and increases your ships Starship Targeting Systems skill, granting an Accuracy bonus. In Tactical Mode, the EDTS console enables a powerful multi-targeting lotus, which is capable of piercing multiple targets. However, while in Tactical Mode, your Starship Shield Systems bonus, Auxiliary Power bonus and Tachyon Inversion Beam are disabled.

This console also provides a passive bonus to Critical Severity and Hull Hit Points.

This unique station mod may only be equipped on Heavy Destroyers, but may be equipped in any of their console mod slots.



Weapon System Synergy (Starship Trait)


After reaching level 5 in your Heavy Destroyer’s Starship Mastery, you will unlock the Weapon System Synergy trait. While this trait is slotted, each time a directed energy weapon is activated on your ship, you will shunt a small amount of power to your projectile emitters. This is represented by building up stacks of Weapon System Synergy. Upon reaching 10 stacks, your projectile weapons will become primed and deal additional damage and shield bleedthrough for several seconds. After this expires there is a short lockout window before you can begin building up Weapon System Synergy stacks again.

Q&A


Q: Will fleet versions of these ships be available when the Tier 6 Heavy Destroyers are released?

A: Fleet versions of these ships will be released at a later date.

Q: What’s the difference between the Tier 5 console and the Tier 6 console?

A: The Tier 6 console provides a passive bonus to Critical Severity and Maximum Hull Hit Points. This stat bonus is not present on the Tier 5 console. Additionally, the tier 5 Heavy Destroyer Console (Console – Universal – Dynamic Tactical System) cannot be put onto the tier 6 Heavy Destroyers. Likewise, the tier 6 Heavy Destroyer Console (Console – Universal – Enhanced Dynamic Tactical System) cannot be put onto the tier 5 Heavy Destroyers.

Q: How do I claim one of these ships?

A: All 1,000-day subscribers and lifetime subscription players can purchase these ships under the “Tier 6” category in the ship store.

Q: Can the Tier 5 ship parts be used on the Tier 6 version of the Heavy Destroyer?

A: Yes, you can mix-and-match these parts as both the Tier 5 and Tier 6 ships come with both the original and new costumes.

Q: Do I have to claim the Tier 5 version of the Heavy Destroyer to be eligible for the Tier 6 version?

A: No, you can claim these separately and the only requirements are:

  1. You are either a 1,000-day subscriber or a lifetime subscriber
  2. You meet the level requirement
    1. Level 40 for the Tier 5 Heavy Destroyer
    2. Level 50 for the Tier 6 Heavy Destroyer
