Two New Recon Ships!

By Ambassador Kael | Fri 11 Dec 2020 09:00:00 AM PST

 

Beginning December 18th, two new Recon Destroyers are being made available in the C-Store on PC! These new vessels in the Dominion and Romulan ship lineage were inspired by the Federation’s Lafayette-class and the KDF’s Ketha Recon Raptor. They feature many of the technological advances seen there, combined with the unique shipbuilding advantages employed by the Dominion and Romulans, respectively. These starships will be available in both Non-Fleet and Fleet variants.

Special Introductory Pricing Discount! From 12/18 @ 8am PT - 12/22 @ 10am PT, you can get these ships for 2400 ZEN each when purchased individually, a bundle with either the Federation & Klingon or the Dominion & Romulan ships for only 3200 ZEN, or a bundle with all four ships for only 5600 ZEN! Thereafter, they will return to their normal price of 3000 ZEN individually, 4000 ZEN for either two-ship bundle, or 7000 ZEN for the four-ship bundle.

Fleet versions of each of these starships will unlock upon completing your Fleet Starbase’s Tier 4 Shipyard. The standard Fleet Module discounts apply if you have purchased the ships from the C-Store.

Without further ado, here are the stats on these exciting new starships!

Jem'Hadar Vanguard Recon Destroyer [T6]

In these trying times, constant conflict and ever-present hostility have made exploration and reconnaissance at the edges of the frontier an even more dangerous endeavor than normal. The Jem'Hadar Vanguard Recon Destroyer has been designed in response to this galactic atmosphere, providing a distinct combat-focus to a ship that is otherwise dedicated to scientific study and intelligence gathering.

Vanguard Starships come included with two loyal Jem’Hadar ace pilots. These expert pilots fly their own Jem’Hadar Vanguard Raiders in formation with you, never straying far from your side. Their extensive experience in team-based tactics allow them to execute powerful maneuvers at your command. In case of catastrophic ship failure, they will return back to operations shortly and automatically after a brief lockout.

This starship features a Lieutenant Commander Universal/Intelligence Specialist Bridge Officer seat.

Rahhae Recon Warbird [T6]

The Romulan Republic, lacking the resources and industrial muscle of the Federation and the Klingon Empire, is often challenged to maintain a fine balance between innovation and economic necessity when it comes to the design of new starships. Fortunately, the engineers of the Republic are up to the task, and the Rahhae Recon Warbird is their latest triumph in that arena. This new vessel brings potent scientific and intelligence gathering tech to the Republic fleet.

Warbirds are powered by a Singularity Core, unlike other starships. This unique form of propulsion grants extra abilities compared to Warp Cores, but comes at the cost of lower overall power levels for the starship.

Like most warbirds, this starship comes with innate Romulan Battle cloaking, allowing the starship to stealth even during combat.

This starship features a Lieutenant Commander Universal/Intelligence Specialist Bridge Officer seat.

Console – Universal – Hyper-focusing Trinary Arrays

This technology was originally conceived as a hyper-accurate long-range scanning device, capable of dissecting quantum data from distances previously unheard of. However, once prototyping began, it quickly became evident that the trinary emitter-beams used to scan and receive such data caused irreparable damage to matter caught in the crossfire - an issue further confounded by the fact that without targeting parameters designed for precise weaponry, the system takes several seconds to focus on its intended target. While these compounded issues resulted in the scanner functionality of the device being abandoned, the easily-weaponized emitters found a new home in this starship defense project.

This console also provides a passive boost to Shield Hardness and Shield Penetration skills.

This console can be equipped on any starship, in any console slot. Only one of these consoles may be equipped on a ship at a time.

Jubilant Cadence (Starship Trait)

While this trait is active, defeating enemies or healing allies will grant you one stack of Jubilant Cadence a maximum of once every 4 seconds, which last until you leave combat or are defeated. After reaching 5 stacks, you and your teammates will receive a large boost to speed and turn rate, while also having all bridge officer ability recharge timers reduced.

 

Fleet Starship Variants:

Fleet versions of these ships will unlock upon completing your Fleet Starbase’s Tier 4 Shipyard. The standard Fleet Module discounts apply – these starships may be purchased for 5 Fleet Ship Modules, 20,000 Fleet Credits, and 1 Fleet Ship Provision normally, but will be discounted to 1 Fleet Ship Module, Twenty Thousand Fleet Credits, and 1 Fleet Ship Provision if you have the corresponding C-Store ship purchased already.

In addition to the new recon destroyers, we have also remastered the Starfleet New Orleans-class Recon Destroyer with the new Galaxy-type material and geometry that made its debut with the legendary bundle. The New Orleans and Lafayette variants also now have access to the Galaxy, Intrepid, Defiant, Sovereign, NX, NX Refit, Type 0, and Type 8 materials.

 

This remaster is free for everyone who already owns a Starfleet Recon Destroyer. To correctly apply the remastered parts, make your Recon Destroyer your active ship, then visit the ship customization screen and select the “New Orleans” template.
