The current run of the Infinity Lock Box will soon be updated with the addition of an all-new Starship!
Starting on November 16th, 2021, players on PC will have the chance to obtain and captain the United Earth Defense Force Vessel (T6). This formidable defender of Planet Earth was seen defending the homeworld of the human race in Season 3 of Star Trek: Discovery.

When Earth of the 32nd century decided to part ways with the Federation in the wake of The Burn, they left behind much of Starfleet's tradition of building exploration and science vessels, and focused instead on large, sturdy vessels built for planetary defense. The UEDF Vessel is the epitome of this philosophy, featuring a heavy focus on shield resilience and durability, while sacrificing little in the way of defensive armaments, but with very little focus on auxiliary systems. However, being the only ship class in the UEDF fleet, it is also versatile enough to serve passably at many purposes, even if the people of Earth are loath to make use of these starships for missions beyond patrolling and protecting their precious blue pearl.
This ship features a Commander Tactical / Command Bridge Officer specialist seat, and a Lt. Commander Engineering / Command Bridge Officer specialist seat.
The shielding technology of the UEDF is second-to-none, and this console makes great use to establish itself as a worthy inheritor of that reputation. With this technology equipped, your ship will be capable of generating a large area of protection for you and your allies, centered a short distance behind your vessel. This area will move with your ship, though the field itself will inhibit your ship's capability to maneuver at full effectiveness. It may be deactivated prematurely, should maneuverability prove to be more important in the moment, than defense.
You and allied vessels within the protective field will receive multiple shield-based benefits including improved resistance to damage, automated redistribution, and periodic regeneration.
This console also provides a passive bonus to Max and Current Shield Subsystem Power, and Maximum Shield Capacity.
This console mod may be used on any starship, in any console slot. Only one of these consoles may be equipped on a ship at a time.
While this Trait is slotted, activating any Bridge Officer abilities that restore shields to yourself or an ally will also briefly apply an effect that automatically redistributes the target's shields, provides shield hardness, and renders shields immune to drain effects. This effect may not be reapplied to a target until it has worn off.
