STO: Ship Variants

Photo CR: stowiki.orgFor those that do play or are thinking about playing Star Trek Online. I thought it was time to have a weekly news and update article about the new features and additions of the game, with some reviews and notes that i gather while playing the game.

First off as you all know there is a new federation cruiser, the Odyssey Class. When it was first introduced there was an event were the player could test the ship in a small testing ground, then a small confrontation with the Klingons. The ship could only be used if you held the Rank of Admiral or above. Since that event closed players had this new vessel in their inventory. Now there are configuration variants of the class. There is now a tactical, operations, and science. The tactical version of the ship has a small escort ship that will follow you and attack your targets in battle. The operations version has the feature of saucer separation like the Galaxy class refit, and finally the science version has work bees that repair the hull of the ship. There are options of buying all three ships, or just one. For the price of two ship you can have all three variants. Once you purchase is made the vessel is unlocked for all Federation characters on you account.

There is a vessel for the Klingon faction as well that was introduced that same way with the testing event.The Bortas Class vessel. As with the federation the Klingon variants were introduced, the Bortasqu’ variant. The tactical variant has a disruptor autocannon,  the war cruiser has a command pod that can be separated, into a bird of prey, then last but not least the command class. This one has the feature of a subspace snare, it will take the target and move it directly in front of your vessel. The pricing is the same for this also.

So there are the choices for the new Star Trek Online vessels. In my next article,the review of the daily mining and Defera Borg ground event.

Until next time…
