The Kirk Class Takes Command

By Ambassador Kael | Fri 08 Oct 2021 09:00:00 AM PDT

In honor of one of Starfleet’s most celebrated (and occasionally controversial) Captains, we are proud to present the next in a line of ship’s pulled from the 32nd Century – the Kirk-class Temporal Heavy Battlecruiser!

From October 13th at 8am PT to November 3rd at 10am PT, we are running a promotion that will provide an additional bonus when opening a Research and Development Pack.

When you purchase a Research and Development 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 Research and Development Pack.

We are excited to announce a brand new addition to this impressive list of Tier-6 Starships that are included Promotional Ship Pack: Kirk-class Temporal Heavy Battlecruiser (T6)

Kirk Temporal Heavy Battlecruiser [T6]

While this class of starship was originally conceptualized to be a successor to the iconic and beloved Constitution-class, the rigors of the era in which it was built have necessitated rather distinct departures from its intended ancestor - not the least of which in terms of scale. Long-range, deep-space exploration and frontier support entail the need for increased crew capacity, additional systemic redundancies, and a suite of defensive capabilities robust enough to handle being a one-ship-fleet at the edges of the Federation. Additionally, this vessel has been outfitted with the latest in technologies useful for temporal analysis and manipulation. Although the use of this technology for actual time travel has been strictly forbidden in the time period from which this starship originates, there will always be a need to break such rules on occasion, if dictated by the needs of the many.

This starship features a Commander Engineering / Temporal Operative Specialist Bridge Officer seat and a Lt. Commander Universal / Command Specialist Bridge Officer seat.

Console - Universal – Field-Replicated Buster Pods

This specialized set of industrial replicator arrays are pre-programmed for maximum efficiency. When activated, they quickly create a series of devastating kinetic weapons nicknamed "Buster Pods." Each pod is outfitted with a miniaturized impulse drive capable of a single, quick burst of FTL travel before they burn out and fail catastrophically. On-board targeting suites provide the Buster Pod with rudimentary self-guidance protocols, allowing each one to choose an appropriate enemy target to aim at before activating its strategic failure. It will jump toward the designated target, dealing massive kinetic damage to each Foe it impacts along the way, then violently expire once reaching maximum combat distance, once more dealing kinetic damage to enemies in the range of the final detonation.

This console also provides a passive bonus to All Damage Resistance Rating that increases as remaining Shield Capacity depletes.

Starship Trait – Risk Is Our Business

Activating a Captain Ability will grant you a stacking amount of Temporary Hitpoints per Foe within 5km. Additionally, if "Threatening Stance" is active, this will also generate a large amount of Threat toward nearby foes, further encouraging them to attack your vessel.

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.
