New Tal Shiar Lock Box and Lobi Ships

Adapted Technology

The Tal Shiar’s use of adapted Borg technology has allowed a select portion of their fleet’s starships to undergo an incredible metamorphosis, becoming far more powerful than their base components could have ever been on their own. Although the techniques used in this process are extremely dangerous, no one can deny the potency of the vessels that have undergone this transformation.

Tal Shiar Adapted Destroyer

Star Trek Online STO MMORPG F2P Sc-Fi MMO game Legacy of Romulus

The Llaihr Class is a series of powerful Tal Shiar Destroyers based on the design of the Dhelan and enhanced with adapted Borg technology. The Llaihr trades some of the speed and maneuverability of the Dhelan for added resilience and advanced technology. Unlike most Tactical vessels, the Llaihr has access to Sensor Analysis, which gradually increases the damage the vessel deals to a single target, the longer it keeps that target focused.

This ship comes with a universal Shrapnel Torpedo Launcher console. This console provides your armory with a supply of replicator nanites specifically programmed for the task of fabricating Shrapnel Torpedoes. These deadly warheads are designed to fracture into smaller self-propelled projectiles shortly before reaching their target, providing each individual source of damage additional opportunity to penetrate the enemy's shields. Even though each bit of shrapnel may seem inconsequential alone, the total potential damage inflicted by such a barrage of incoming fire could be gigantic.

In addition, this ship comes with a Tal Shiar Adapted Borg Warp Core. The Tal Shiar Adapted Borg Warp Core is designed based on modified Borg techology. It provides the ship with enhanced hull regeneration, as well as augmenting the ship's Auxiliary power systems. By utilizing a modified version of the Borg's Transwarp technology, this advanced Warp Core also increases your maximum Warp speed in sector space. Utilizing this Warp Core in conjunction with both of the consoles found on Tal Shiar Adapted vessels will result in additional Exotic Particle damage being dealt to targets of most offensive science abilities.

Although equipped with a Cloaking Device, the use of Borg technology interferes with its overall effectiveness, resulting in a weaker Cloak than most other vessels.

Tal Shiar Adapted Battle Cruiser

Star Trek Online STO MMORPG F2P Sc-Fi MMO game Legacy of Romulus

The Khnial Class is a series of powerful Tal Shiar Battle Cruisers based on the design of the D'deridex and upgraded with adapted Borg technology. By augmenting the D'deridex, the Tal Shiar designed this vessel to focus on crippling and disabling enemy ships, or even turning them against one another. Due to its advanced technology, the Khnial has access to Sensor Analysis, allowing to gradually increase its damage dealt to a single target, based on how long it keeps that target as its focus.

This ship comes with a universal Indoctrination Nanite Dispersal System console. The Indoctrination Nanite Dispersal System utilizes adapted Borg technology to deploys advanced nanites to infiltrate the weapons systems of an enemy vessel. Once the nanites have taken over the target's weapon systems, they will cause the target to fire randomly at nearby vessels. The enemy vessel will be unable to disable their own weapons systems during this time.

In addition, this ship comes with a Tal Shiar Adapted Borg Warp Core. The Tal Shiar Adapted Borg Warp Core is designed based on modified Borg techology. It provides the ship with enhanced hull regeneration, as well as augmenting the ship's Auxiliary power systems. By utilizing a modified version of the Borg's Transwarp technology, this advanced Warp Core also increases your maximum Warp speed in sector space. Utilizing this Warp Core in conjunction with both of the consoles found on Tal Shiar Adapted vessels will result in additional Exotic Particle damage being dealt to targets of most offensive science abilities.
