From the minds of Starfleet’s most inventive engineers of the 32nd century, comes a ship unlike any other – the Courage-class Command Science Destroyer!
From July 27th at 8am PT (17:00 CEST) to August 17th at 10am PT (19:00 CEST), we are running a promotion that will provide an additional bonus when opening a Research and Development Pack, or a Duty Officer Pack.
When you purchase either Pack from the C-Store 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 pack's normal contents.
We are excited to announce a brand new addition to this impressive list of Tier-6 Starships that are included Promotional Ship Pack: Courage-class Command Science Destroyer (T6)
Centuries of starship design tradition from races across the Milky Way galaxy have allowed certain aspects of their construction to be matters that are designed by-rote, and rarely questioned or re-examined. Deflector dishes and emitters are mounted in the front, while impulse engines belong in the back, as an example. However, once in a while a group of ship designers decides to be courageous and inventive enough to buck trends, and explore new possibilities. The Courage-class is the culmination of similar exploration, as a starship designed to treat directional bias as a matter of purpose and forethought, rather than an afterthought.
This unique vessel is supported by a series of subsystems that allow the ship to transform its capabilities by reversing its direction. In its default configuration, a large secondary deflector and specialized set of sensors and emitters fuel the ship's scientific pursuits. However, by reversing its orientation, the ship's systems are redirected into a bulwark of defensive tactical capabilities that would not be out of place on its battlecruiser peers.
This ship's default configuration features a Lt. Commander Tactical / Command Bridge Officer Seat, and a Commander Science / Command Bridge Officer Seat. While transformed into Tactical Mode, these seats swap into a Commander Tactical / Command Bridge Officer Seat, and a Lt. Commander Science / Command Bridge Officer Seat.
The Courage-class utilizes a unique directional matrix to allow the ship to quickly transfer its functionality between being focused on Science and Research, and being a resilient Destroyer. The ship's default configuration is outfitted for scientific pursuits, but it can be quickly reconfigured on the fly by switching into Tactical Mode.
When this transformation is initiated, the ship's orientation will be reversed. The ship's Shield Systems will lose integrity while this power is instead rerouted to Hull Integrity (-Shield Capacity, +Hull Capacity). Access to Sensor Analysis, Subsystem Targeting, and the ship's Secondary Deflector Dish will be disabled, while the Experimental Weapon becomes available.
This technology suite is capable of translating the force of your starship's forward movement, combined with its mass, into destructive energy that can be immediately released upon nearby enemies. This energy translation stops all movement of your starship briefly, but is made more dangerous based on how massive your ship is (represented by Max Hull Capacity) and how quickly it was traveling at the time of activation (represented by Flight Speed).
This console also provides a passive bonus to Damage from Energy Weapons (based on Auxiliary Power) and Maximum Hull Capacity.
Hull Capacity Bonus calculations capped at 300,000
Flight Speed Bonus calculations capped at 300
When damaged from the forward 180' arc, the energy will be redirected into the deflector dish, manifesting as increased Damage for Exotic Damage Bridge Officer Abilities. The stacks built up from incoming damage are expended and reset when activating your next Exotic Damage Bridge Officer Ability.
When damaged from the reward 180' arc, a portion of the expended structural integrity field is reabsorbed as power that is spent on passive Hull Regeneration, or can be spent to increase the Healing from Bridge Officer Abilities. All built up bonuses are expended and reset when activating your next Hull Healing Bridge Officer Ability.
The Coherent Integrity Projector leverages your ship's structural integrity fields to generate a harmonic projectile that deals heavy kinetic damage to your target. A portion of this damage will bypass the target's shields. The damage inflicted by this weapon scales proportionally to your Maximum Hull Capacity at the time it is fired (scaling starts at 100,000 and continues up to 250,000).
In addition to this new startship, 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:
