New Temporal Lock Box and Lobi Ships

Star Trek Online STO MMORPG F2P Sc-Fi MMO game

The Tholians have been up to their old tricks. Their obsession with time travel, the mirror universe, quantum realities and related technologies seems to motivate their every move. Even their ships' warp cores often tear holes in the fabric of the universe when they breach. In addition, newly unclassified evidence suggests the Tholians were responsible, or at least heavily involved, in the loss of the Constitution class U.S.S. Defiant in 2268.

Recently detected activity reveals several Tholian asteroids bases in or around the Azure Nebula. Several Federation and Klingon Starships have been detected at these bases, many of which demonstrate an unusual quantum or temporal signature. A few covert strike teams have been sent to this region. These teams have brought back a handful of amazing discoveries - - among them, 29th Century Starships!

Unfortunately, much of the 29th century technology is missing from these ships - - presumably stripped and now in the hands of the Tholian Assembly. But still much can be learned from these vessels, and a few have been rebuilt with conventional equipment that takes advantage of some of these ships' secrets.

Wells Temporal Science Vessel

Among the ships that have been recovered were Wells Class Temporal Science Vessels. These appear to be the same class as the Federation Timeship encountered by Captain Kathryn Janeway in 2375 (so to speak). As Janeway described in a classified debriefing, "The U.S.S. Relativity's mission was to protect the timeline from temporal incursions." The Federation's interest in these vessels cannot be understated.

The Wells Class Temporal Science Vessel comes with a Tipler Cylinder Universal console module. The Tipler Cylinder can actually rewind time! The dense beryllium cylinder core of this module rotates at near light speed, allowing your ship to perform a Temporal Backstep and rewind time approximately 13 seconds. Your ship's position reverses, and some of your ship's hull and shield damage is restored. Additionally, the cooldown and recharge times on all your abilities are reset.

The Tipler Cylinder is part of a set, and can be used on any Timeship, including the Wells, Mobius, Korath, Krenn, Aeon or Rozhenko class vessels. If you also have a Manheim Device equipped, activating the Temporal Backstep will also cause all nearby foes to freeze in time until the sequence has ended.

Mobius Temporal Destroyer (Mirror Universe)

Mobius Class Temporal Destroyers appear to be similar to the Federation Timeship encountered by Captain Kathryn Janeway. Unlike the Wells Class, however, these ships appear to be from the Mirror Universe, and as mirror universe ships, it is not surprising they seem to be built more for combat, than for protecting the timeline.

The Mobius Class Temporal Destroyer comes with a Manheim Device Universal console module. This console is based on Dr. Paul Manheim's time-gravity work in the early and mid-24th century. His experiments caused ripples in time, now called the Manheim Effect. The Manheim Device console can create quantum duplicates of yourself -- one from your past and one from your future.

The Manheim Device is part of a set, and can be used on any Timeship, including the Wells, Mobius, Korath, Krenn, Aeon or Rozhenko class vessels. If you have the Manheim Device and the Tipler Cylinder console equipped, activating Temporal Backstep will also cause all nearby foes to freeze in time until the sequence has ended.

Korath Temporal Science Vessel

Similar to the Federation Wells Class, the Korath Class Temporal Science Vessel comes with a Tipler Cylinder Universal console module. The Tipler Cylinder can actually rewind time! The dense beryllium cylinder core of this module rotates at near light speed, allowing your ship to perform a Temporal Backstep and rewind time approximately 13 seconds. Your ship's position reverses, and some of your ship's hull and shield damage is restored. Additionally, the cooldown and recharge times on all your abilities are reset.

The Tipler Cylinder is part of a set, and can be used on any Timeship, including the Wells, Mobius, Korath, Krenn, Aeon or Rozhenko class vessels.

Krenn Temporal Destroyer (Mirror Universe)

The Krenn Class Temporal Destroyers are not only from the future, but they also appear to be from the Mirror Universe. They are very similar to the Korath Temporal Science Vessels, however, as a mirror universe ship, it is built more for combat.

The Krenn Class Temporal Destroyer comes with a Manheim Device Universal console module. This console is based on Dr. Paul Manheim's time-gravity work in the early and mid-24th century. His experiments caused ripples in time, now called the Manheim Effect. The Manheim Device console can create quantum duplicates of yourself -- one from your past and one from your future.

The Manheim Device is part of a set, and can be used on any Timeship, including the Wells, Mobius, Korath, Krenn, Aeon or Rozhenko class vessels. If you have the Manheim Device and the Tipler Cylinder console equipped, activating Temporal Backstep will also cause all nearby foes to freeze in time until the sequence has ended.

Aeon Timeship

The Aeon Timeships appear to be the same class as the Federation Timeship encountered by Captain Kathryn Janeway in 2373. The U.S.S. Voyager's encounter with one of these small crafts left them stranded in 1996. That same craft crashed in the High Sierras in 1967, where it was discovered by Henry Starling, who used the technology on the ship to drive Earth’s advancement in computers all through the late 20th century. The Federation's interest in these vessels cannot be understated.

The Aeon Timeships come with a Subatomic Deflector Array. This Deflector provides a small improvement to Starship Flow Capacitors, Particle Generators, Shield Systems and Shield Emitters. The Deflector also enables you to fire a Subatomic Disruptor. This devastating weapon fires a single massive sustained beam capable of breaking apart a target's molecular structure. It can be equipped on any small craft.

Rozhenko Timeship

Presumably named after Alexander Rozhenko, Son of Worf, who has recently funded research into temporal mechanics, the Rozhenko Timeships is a small craft with fantastic power.

The Rozhenko Timeships come with a Subatomic Deflector Array. This Deflector provides a small improvement to Starship Flow Capacitors, Particle Generators, Shield Systems and Shield Emitters. The Deflector also enables you to fire a Subatomic Disruptor. This devastating weapon fires a single massive sustained beam capable of breaking apart a target's molecular structure. It can be equipped on any small craft.

Mirror Mirror

Tholian incursions into the alternate dimension known as the "Mirror Universe" have resulted in ships being brought back for study. Starfleet and the Klingon Defense Force have obtained several of these vessels and found them fit for frontline duty with minimal modifications.

Unique Bridges

Star Trek Online STO MMORPG F2P Sc-Fi MMO game

The Wells Class Temporal Science Vessel, as well as the Mirror Universe Mobius Temporal Destroyer, has its own unique 29th century bridge. While visiting your bridge, you will also be able to access your Account Shared Bank, move into a Small Craft, and contact different ship departments for Duty Officer assignments.

The Korath Temporal Science Vessel, as well as the Mirror Universe Krenn Temporal Destroyer, also has its own unique 29th century bridge, complete with the same amenities listed above. In addition, warriors can also set trophies from a console on the bridge – while these trophies are not displayed, it will allow players to complete the “Bringing Down the House” mission.
