New Voth Lockbox and Lobi Ships

 

After the first hostile contact with Voth starships in the Solanae Dyson Sphere, the Dyson Joint Command quickly came to respect and fear the defensive capabilities of these vessels. Voth starship technology heavily focuses on turning an enemy’s own strength into a weakness. Many unwary captains combating the Voth threat have unleashed a withering and desperate barrage of energy weapon fire on a Voth starship, only to have it turned against them due to their Reflective Immunity Matrices. The Dyson Joint Command decided that it was imperative to study the Voth’s technology by salvaging their starships and repurposing them for their own needs.

Voth Bastion Flight-Deck Cruiser

Star Trek Online Season 8 STO MMORPG F2P Sci-Fi MMO Game Legacy of Romulus

The Bastion Flight Deck Cruiser is one of the rank-and-file soldier vessels of the Voth's expeditionary force. They are well-equipped to handle just about any situation that comes their way, and come with one fully-operational hangar bay for launching fighters or support craft to aid them in combat.

This ship comes equipped with a Reactive Shield Amplifier console that can temporarily render the ship immune to all sources of incoming damage. While the console’s ability is activated, incoming energy weapon fire will be redirected back at the ship that initiated the attack, causing the attackers to damage themselves. The ability is relatively fragile however, and can be dispersed before its duration has ended if the ship comes under an exceptional amount of incoming fire in a short period of time. This console may be equipped on any Voth vessel.

The Voth Bastion Flight-Deck Cruiser comes standard with 1 hangar bay of Voth Heavy Fighters. Voth Heavy Fighters are armed with Antiproton Arrays, Transphasic Chroniton Torpedoes, Emergency Power to Shields I and Emergency Power to Weapons I.

Equipping both the Aceton Field Generator (info on this console can be found below) and the Reactive Shield Amplifier consoles allow the starship to use the Voth Cloak, as well as granting a small passive bonus to damage resistance rating.

Voth Palisade Science Vessel

Star Trek Online Season 8 STO MMORPG F2P Sci-Fi MMO Game Legacy of Romulus

The Palisade Science Vessel boasts enhanced scientific capabilities, having first been designed for use as a combination exploration and research vessel. Despite being focused on the gathering of knowledge, this ship design is still fully capable of defending itself in a direct confrontation.

This ship comes equipped with an Aceton Field Generator console that allows the ship to emit a unique energy resonance field for up to 20 seconds. While this mode is engaged, the ship resonates with the surrounding warp cores of enemy ships, causing their energy levels to gradually fall. Simultaneously, any incoming attacks from energy weapons cause the Aceton Generator to build up additional energy resonance within the vessel that has this console equipped. While stored, this energy grants damage resistance to the ship that scales up with the amount of energy that has been stored. This energy may also be expelled at any time (or automatically when the 20 second timer runs out) to send out a devastating energy shockwave to damage nearby enemy vessels and becomes more powerful as more energy resonance is stored. This console may be equipped on any Voth vessel.

Equipping both the Aceton Field Generator and the Reactive Shield Amplifier (info on this console can be found above) allow the starship to use the Voth Cloak, as well as granting a small passive bonus to damage resistance rating.
