During Star Trek Online’s 10th Anniversary event, you will be able to unlock the all new Khitomer Alliance Battlecruiser [T6] for all characters on your account!
Once this starship is obtained by any character on your account, all of the characters on your account will be able to claim the Khitomer Alliance Battlecruiser [T6] from the Account Claim tab within the Event Store (in the Event Tab of the Mission Journal).
We are also excited to announce that this starship will be available January 28th on PC, and Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on a later date!
Here are the complete ship details related to this exciting new starship!
The Allied Cooperative Starship Development Board (ACSDB) is excited to announce their first vessel with unified design philosophies. While the ACSDB has been involved in the later design states of many new starship designs, this is their first jointly-designed starship built from the ground up. Its launch is a cause to celebrate - especially a starship such as this.
The Alliance Battlecruiser has performed exceptionally in all of its trials, with its command and coordination abilities noted as exceptionally helpful in larger fleet actions. Its staying power and offensive capabilities in combat have clearly demonstrated that the cruiser and battleship expertise that went into the ship’s design has paid off well. Alliance engineers have noted that the success this design has achieved so far makes them optimistic for a unified future.
This starship features a Lieutenant Commander Command Specialization seat.
This starship can be used by characters of any level upon completion of the tutorial experience. As you level up, this ship gains additional hull, weapon slots, and console slots.
The Alliance Battlecruiser comes equipped with the Aligned Antiproton Shielding Universal Console. When activated, you gain a temporary boost to Energy Weapon Haste, Shield Regeneration, and Shield Capacity that scales up as you get take incoming fire. After that boost ends, or when you re-activate this ability, your ship will deal significant antiproton to each nearby foes.
This technology was made possible by combining some unique methods of distributing shield power automatically into advanced weapon power distribution grids, and the architects of its design say they “couldn’t have done it without the Alliance sharing technology together.”
This console also provides a passive boost to Antiproton Damage and Starship Shield Capacity. It can be equipped in any console slot and equipped on any ship. You may only equip one of these consoles.
After achieving level 5 in the Alliance Battlecruiser, you will unlock the Automated Shield Alignment Starship Trait. While this trait is slotted, you gain bonus damage based on what percentage of your shields is missing. When you defeat a foe, you will restore a substantial portion of your shields.
While comparing ship power level and sensor data with events occurring in combat, a group of analysts noticed that power can be diverted from some sub-components of a weakened shield facing for other systems. As more power in weapons has a correlation with decreasing shield strain, that was deemed the optimal subsystem to shunt that newly discovered excess. Then, after the shield systems have cooled down more from the decreased overall power flow, the power can be shunted back, to give a significant boost to shield strength. The Alliance Battlecruiser was designed to make optimal use of this knowledge, but with more testing they believe it can be used on other ships as well.
NOTE: The above stats and systems are subject to change.
