Star Trek Online: Herald Lockbox and Lobi Ships

By LaughingTrendy | Mon 26 Oct 2015 08:00:00 AM PDT


During the earliest armed confrontations with Iconian and Herald forces, many allies proposed seizing their advanced technology in order to turn it back against these powerful aggressors. Undertaking these efforts came at the price of vast resources and manpower, but thankfully resulted in much of the Heralds' advanced technology now being reverse-engineered sufficiently to be used by the allied forces of the Milky Way, even if many of their underlying scientific principles are still beyond the understanding of most modern specialists. The pinnacle of these efforts is undoubtedly the acquisition and refitting of a number of fearsome Herald starships, now capable of being manned and flown by the most worthy captains of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.

The formidable Quas Flight Deck Cruiser is the workhorse of the Iconian Herald fleet. This incredibly durable starship has both excellent shields and hull strength and boasts a single hangar bay.

This vessel also features both a Lieutenant Science/Command bridge officer seat and a Lieutenant Commander Universal/Intel bridge officer seat.

The Herald Quas Flight Deck Cruiser [T6] has a single hangar bay equipped with Herald Mir Fighters. These light craft are equipped with Herald Antiproton Beam Arrays and the Impact ability.
