"The first vessel that I ever served on as captain was called the Stargazer. It was an overworked, underpowered vessel that was always on the verge of flying apart at the seams. In every measurable sense, my Enterprise is far superior. But there are times when I would give almost anything to command the Stargazer again."
It was Picard's first command, and arguable his first love. So how could Star Trek Online be complete without her. We are very proud to bring you the Heavy Cruiser Refit – Constellation class. This C-store ship is available for 1000 ZEN.
The recent Refit of Starfleet's Heavy Cruiser extends the life of one of the oldest ships in the fleet. This workhorse of the Federation has been used for the past 125 years for everything from deep space exploration, transport, blockade and patrol missions. It is one of the few Starfleet designs to have more than two nacelles.
The Heavy Cruiser Refit is available to all Starfleet of Rank Commander or greater. This is a Tier 3 ship.
The Heavy Cruiser Refit comes equipped with a Warp Burst Capacitor console. This unique piece of equipment allows you to execute a short-duration high-warp burst that confuses enemy sensors into thinking there are two versions of your vessel for a short period of time. This quick burst of coherent warp travel facilitates a Federation tactic known colloquially as the "The Picard Maneuver." The Picard Maneuver grants you a few moments of untargetable status, and moves your ship a good distance forward along your current trajectory in an instant. It also offers you a noticeable tactical advantage. You will be granted a short duration ambush damage bonus immediately after the warp burst.
The Warp Burst Capacitor console can be equipped on any starship, and can be put into any of their console slots. You may only equip one of these consoles.
The Heavy Cruiser Refit configuration includes the Constellation, Cheyenne, Stargazer, and Dakota class costumes. Purchasing the Heavy Cruiser Refit unlocks the Constellation costume for all Heavy Cruiser ship variants.
