The Sh'hval Temporal Science Spearhead

From June 7th until June 28th on PC, we will be running a promotion that will provide an additional bonus when opening newly-purchased Research and Development Packs, or Duty Officer Packs.

** Promotion dates for Console platforms will be announced at a later date.

During this promotion, when you purchase a participating R&D or Duty Officer Pack from the Z-Store and open it, you will receive either 10 Lobi Crystals or a Special Requisition Choice Pack - Tier 6 Promotional Ship Choice Pack in addition to the normal contents of whichever Pack was opened.

Additional details about the participating Packs will be included at the end of this announcement.

We are excited to announce a brand new addition to the impressive list of Tier 6 Starships that are included in this Promotional Ship Pack: the Sh'hval Temporal Science Spearhead! This is the dreadnought-sized support vessel seen coming to the rescue of the U.S.S. Cerritos in the Season 2 finale episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks. Thanks to the ingenuity of one of its own “lower decks” personnel, this Vulcan vessel has cemented its place as a valuable ally, and a fan favorite among many viewers.

Continue reading further on for the full details on this new starship offering!

Sh’vhal Temporal Science Spearhead [T6]

Although the Vulcan people are not in the practice of building starships for the purpose of waging war, it cannot be denied the efficiency with which even their most science-focused vessels can fill such a role when the situation calls for it. The Sh'vhal-class supplements its impressive scientific surveying and scanning capabilities with redundant cross-linked systems that can quickly reroute power and priorities to defensive countermeasures when necessary, including famously resilient and regenerative shield arrays.

This ship features a Commander Science / Temporal Operative Bridge Officer specialist seat, and a Lt. Commander Universal / Command Bridge Officer specialist seat.

Console – Universal – Regenerative Shield Amplifier

Vulcan ships are known to uncharacteristically jump headlong into conflict quite willingly. Perhaps fear of their ship's destruction would be too emotional, or illogical. Perhaps it is simply a matter of the needs of the many outweighing their own. Regardless of their motivation, the Vulcan Science Directorate has authorized distribution of technology built to wrest control of a dangerous situation, redirecting enemy fire toward one's own vessel in an effort to lessen the burden and risk on other allied vessels. While active, the shields of the ship will rapidly regenerate and automatically redistribute, while additional subsystem power is directed to the shields to render additional benefits.

This console additionally provides a passive bonus to Shield Subsystem Power, Starship Shield Restoration and Starship Shield Regeneration. This console may be equipped on any ship in any console slot.

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.

Min Range: 2.5km
Max Range: 20km

  • Teleport in Front of Target
  • 5 Nearest Allies gain Untargetable/Unkillable for 2 sec
  • Taunt up to 5 Foes within 10km for 15 sec
  • To Self for 15 sec:
    • Massive Shield Regeneration each sec
    • Automatically Redistribute Shield Facings
    • Shield Subsystem Power set to 150

Starship Trait – Totally Lost All Control

While your ship is above 80% Shield Capacity, activating a Shield Healing Bridge Officer Ability will redirect a portion of the expended restorative energy and temporarily overclock your starship weapons, granting them a significant boost to both Critical Chance and Critical Severity for a few seconds. This effect can only be triggered once every several seconds.

  • While above 80% Max Shields, activating a Shield Healing Boff Ability grants to self:
    • +100% Critical Hit Chance with Weapons for 4 sec
    • +200 Critical Severity Rating with Weapons for 4 sec
    • Once Triggered, will not trigger again for 20 sec
