The Kelvin Constitution II!

By Ambassador Kael | Wed 10 Apr 2024 09:00:00 AM PDT

In this age of universes colliding, a peek into another way events could have gone is nothing new. Starfleet generally has regulations on technology from other universes crossing into our own, but there’s a few backdoors that have been used by enterprising Starfleet Captains. The results of one such loophole bring us a ship that many never thought they’d see in action: The Constitution II, of the Kelvin Timeline. You'll have the chance to get this ship when you open an Infinity Crafting Pack or Infinity Duty Officer pack on PC from April 11th at 8am PT to May 2nd at 12pm PT.

Kelvin Timeline Constitution II Intel Cruiser

This successor to the ill-fated U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701), which was lost in the Altamid nebula, was envisioned as being one of the most advanced ships in Starfleet for its time. Purpose-built for exploration of that selfsame nebula, it has been outfitted with cutting-edge navigational sensor equipment as well as impressive maneuverability for a ship of its size. Originally constructed at Yorktown Station, this ship has also been outfitted with experimental gravitational manipulation technology, and prototype defensive capabilities imagined as a direct countermeasure to the unfortunate attack that destroyed its predecessor and namesake.

This ship comes with a Commander Engineering / Intelligence Bridge Officer Seat, and a Lt. Commander Tactical / Pilot Bridge Officer Seat.

Console - Universal - Proximity-Based Anti-Opposition Emitter

This defensive countermeasure was developed in direct response to the Altamid Drone Swarm attack which destroyed the U.S.S. Enterprise within the dense nebula near Yorktown Station. The devastation caused by those unanticipated hull-to-hull contacts can now (hopefully) be remedied. This technology sets up a harmonic resonance between the interior of the ship’s deflector shields, and a polarized hull plating, allowing the ship’s phaser emitters to “bounce” energy around between them, resulting in a field of devastation that is intended to be deadly to enemy vessels caught in its emissions. Increasing the ship’s impulse speed results in a natural increase in the harmonization potential, further amplifying the phaser damage potential.

This console also provides a passive increase to Phaser Damage, Flight Speed and Turn Rate.

Starship Trait - Gravitational Nexus

Adapted from the complex gravitational technology used at Yorktown Station, this artificial nexus can generate gravitational eddies to aid in the flight of starships, projectiles, and exotic particles that are attuned to the gravitational fields being generated.

Activating any Bridge Officer Anomaly ability will simultaneously deploy an Artificial Gravitational Nexus at the location of the target. Allies within 5km of this Nexus will receive increased Flight Speed and Maneuverability, as well as Bonus Damage with Exotic Damage Abilities, and Projectile Weapons.

This buff extends to the 24 allies nearest to the Nexus in the affected area, including summoned allies, hangar pets, targetable torpedoes, and mines.

Event & Sales

We’re pleased to announce the return of the Research and Development Weekend! This event will run from April 11th at 8am PT to April 15th at 12pm PT on PC, and features several bonuses throughout STO that will give Captains of all levels a leg up advancing their rank in the Research and Development school(s) of their choice.

For those Captains looking specifically for extra help with their projects, all R&D packs throughout the game will give out an extra 25% of the items they currently disperse for the duration of this event. Queue R&D Material Reward Packages (Normal, Advanced and Elite) will reward 25% more R&D Materials and have a chance to reward a Catalyst.

Alternatively, Captains wanting to advance through Research and Development schools as fast as possible should seek out Harvest Nodes, located in mission maps throughout STO, which will not only disperse 2 extra R&D Materials each time they are used, but will also reward 10 Dilithium Ore and have a chance to give out a R&D Catalyst during this event.

For all Captains that work on a Research and Development project during this weekend event, those projects will reward an extra 50% of the appropriate Research and Development School XP. This includes projects to make components as well as those to make items.

From April 11th at 8am PT to April 15th at 12pm PT on PC, we are running a special weekend event where you can earn Bonus Commendation XP by completing any Duty Officer assignments! 

To those junior officers who work tirelessly in cramped Jefferies Tubes, perish namelessly on away missions, or provide the endless streams of reports and analysis necessary for a starship to function – this event is dedicated to you!

During this event, you’ll gain a 50% increase in all Commendation XP earned by completion of Duty Officer assignments. You don’t need to do anything special for this bonus – it’s automatic.

Receive a FREE* special Purple quality duty officer with a unique active roster power by speaking with your duty officer contact. For Starfleet officers and Romulan allies, this is an engineering Exocomp duty officer; for KDF officers and Romulan allies, it is a Reman duty officer.

*This is not available if you already claimed it the last time we ran the event.

Duty officer packs** opened during the event will each have a FREE additional Green quality or better duty officer inside. This only applies to C-Store purchased packs, not to those awarded during rank-up, from recruitment assignments or mini-packs. Also, it applies only to packs opened during the event, even if they are purchased prior to the event. 

**The packs included in this offer are: Delta Alliance Duty Officer Pack, Gamma Quadrant Duty Officer Cadre, Reinforcements Duty Officer Pack, Fleet Support Duty Officer Pack, Romulan Survivor Duty Officer Pack, Fleet Support Duty Officer Pack, Klingon Empire Duty Officer Pack and Federation Duty Officer Pack.

The Academy particle scanning events are now part of the Junior Officer Appreciation Event! Visit Starfleet Academy or Klingon Academy during the event and speak to Professor Meyer or Commander B’Tama. Pick a cadet to train, then engage in scanning particles all about the academy grounds. As you scan and capture particles you’ll help to train the cadet, and in exchange your faction will release a new random Duty Officer to you. The more particles you scan, the better the quality of the officer you can claim!

  • Scan a minimum of 5 traces to be rewarded a Common Duty Officer
  • Scan a minimum of 25 traces to be rewarded a Uncommon Duty Officer
  • Scan a minimum of 50 traces to be rewarded a Rare Duty Officer
  • Scan a minimum of 75 traces to be rewarded a Very Rare Duty Officer

Remember, additional reserve roster duty officer slots (in increments of 25 and 100) are available from the in-game C-Store, for up to a maximum of 500 reserve roster spaces.

Have fun, and try not to send too many duty officers to Sickbay!
