"U.S.S. Voyager - J. That's, what, ten generations of evolution?"
"Eleven. I'd love to hear those stories."
-Silvia Tilly/Joann Owosekun, Star Trek: Discovery
Now those stories will be yours to tell. From March 4th at 8am PT (17:00 CET) to March 25th at 10am PT (18:00 CET), we are running a promotion that will provide an additional bonus when opening a Research and Development Pack or a Duty Officer Pack. These packs will have a chance to open into a rare Tier 6 Ship, including the Janeway class that first appeared in Star Trek: Disovery! From March 4th at 8am PT (17:00 CET) to March 8th at 10am PT (19:00 CET), all of these packs will be 20% off!
When you purchase a Research and Development Pack or a Duty Officer Pack from the C-Store during this promotion and open it, you will receive either 10 Lobi Crystals or a Special Requisition Choice Pack - Tier 6 Promotional Ship Choice Pack in addition to the Research and Development Pack or Duty Officer Pack.
We are excited to announce a new addition to this Promotional Ship Pack: The Janeway Class Command Science Vessel! This ship was one of the first 32nd Century Federation ships encountered by the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery.
In a distant future timeline, Federation starships have undergone a number of interesting evolutions of both technology and aesthetics. Some still reflect elements of their original lineage though, as is true with the Janeway-class Command Science Vessel. Drawing its original inspiration from the Intrepid-class starships of the late-24th century, this ship has been updated to focus on speed and maneuverability in local space, without sacrificing its scientific capabilities. Unlike classic science vessels, this ship focuses its power output on hull integrity rather than shield capacity, and has also been specifically outfitted to serve as a fleet command vessel.
This starship features a Commander Science / Command Specialist Bridge Officer seat and a Lieutenant Universal / Miracle Worker Specialist Bridge Officer seat.
Command ships are impressive vessels designed to inspire those around them. When the Command ship or its teammates activate a Bridge Officer ability, all Command Ships on the team will receive a small amount of the Inspiration resource. Command Bridge Officer abilities generate additional Inspiration. Once a Command ship's Inspiration meter is full they can use one of three powerful abilities that can turn the tide of battle.
This weaponry was originally theorized in the late-24th century as an ingenious way to utilize photonic/holographic technology, but application of those theories only came to fruition with the introduction of programmable matter. Now that it has been realized, starships with both capabilities may rapidly deploy this technology while in the field. Deployment includes a sensor-masking suite that acts as a defensive countermeasture for the ship, while simultaneously creating an additional source of firepower to soften up any enemy starships unfortunate enough to be lingering in your ship's forward arc.
Your ship's systems have been tuned to grant additional benefits when entering and exiting cloak. Entering cloak will restore Hull over time and boost maneuverability, while exiting will grant a burst of Firing Cycle Haste for all ship weaponry. This works with any cloaking device variant.
32nd Century Phaser space weapons have a chance to recover the recharge time of Bridge Officer Abilities, providing an upfront burst of recovery and accelerating the recharge for a significant duration thereafter. Repeated triggers of this effect provide the upfront burst again and refresh the duration of the over time bonus. The versions of these weapons that come with the Voyager J will not be upgradeable, but these weapons will be available elsewhere in the future.
In addition to this new starship, opening this Special Requisition Choice Pack - Tier 6 Promotional Ship Choice Pack will give the recipient a choice of any Tier 6 ship found in any previous Research & Development or Duty Officer Promotional Pack.
The player fortunate enough to win this ship pack will be presented with a choice of claiming a package containing this exciting new starship, or any one of the following ships:
The Special Requisition Pack - 23rd Century Tier 6 Ship opens into one of the ships below, depending on faction:
