Star Trek Online Dares You to Try the Courage-Class Command Science Destroyer

A one-of-a-kind starship.
A one-of-a-kind starship. Perfect World

There’s no question that Starfleet has what can be described as the most inventive engineers in the galaxy. One of their exciting starships is none other than the Courage-class Command Science Destroyer. This new Tier-6 Starship is joining Star Trek Online as part of the Promotional Ship Pack: Courage-class Command Science Destroyer (T6).

Starting tomorrow, July 27, and all the way to August 17, the game is running a promotion where players get an extra bonus when opening a Research and Development Pack or a Duty Officer Pack.

Either Pack is available on the C-Store and opening it gives players either 10 Lobi Crystals or the Special Requisition Choice Pack - Tier 6 Promotional Ship Choice Pack. This is, of course, in addition to the normal items offered in the pack. By the way, opening the pack also gives players the choice of a Tier 6 ship found in any previous Research and Development or Duty Officer Promotional Pack.

In the Star Trek universe, the design of most starships is typically based on tradition. Every now and then, however, there are ship designers that go against the flow. The Courage-class is a good example of this.

The main feature of this starship is how it can change functionalities. From something focused on Science and Research, it can transform into a Destroyer. Once the transformation has started, the orientation is reversed. Its Shield Systems, for instance, lose integrity, and the power is rerouted to the Hull Integrity. In addition, some features are disabled while the Experimental Weapon is activated. Here’s what happens:

  • Enables Tactical Mode:
    • Upgrades Lt. Commander Tactical/Command station to Commander Tactical/Command.
    • Enables Experimental Weapon.
    • +20% Maximum Hull Capacity.
  • Disables Science Mode:
    • Downgrades Commander Science/Command station to Lt. Commander Science/Command.
    • Disables Secondary Deflector, Sub-System Targeting, and Sensor Analysis.
    • -20% Shield Capacity.

Talking about the Experimental Weapon, this refers to the Coherent Integrity Projector. It leverages the structural integrity fields of the ship and generates a harmonic projectile, which can deal heavy kinetic damage to the target. That’s not all since the damage inflicted by the weapon scales in proportion to the Maximum Hull Capacity at the time it is fired.
