    New Zen Ship

    Post by verbena on Wed Oct 31, 2012 2:30 pm

    New Zen-store ship coming with season seven: The vesta class.

    Devblog link: http://sto.perfectworld.com/blog/?p=738141

    It'll be a three-pack, like the odyssey is. Each of the three with a different unique console that can only be used on the vest class, and a slightly different slot layout.

    This ship looks kinda sick. It's a science vessel that can fit dual cannons and has a hangar bay. It's also got a universal lt. commander slot. Base turn rate is nearly that of an escort. They also come with special dual cannons that use auxiliary power instead of weapons power. So, I'm assuming, you can keep your power setting to max aux power to maximize your sci abilities and still be pumping out good damage with those dual cannons.

    Base stats:

    Base Stats (for all Multi-Mission Science Vessels):
    Rank Required: Vice Admiral
    Hull Strength: 27,800
    Shield Modifier: 1.35
    Crew: 750
    Weapons: 3 Fore, 3 Aft
    Device Slots: 3
    Bridge Officer Stations: 1 Lieutenant Tactical, 1 Lieutenant Engineering, 1 Commander Science, 1 Ensign Universal, 1 Lieutenant Commander Universal
    Base Turn Rate: 13 degrees per second
    Impulse Modifier: 0.16
    Sensor Analysis
    Subsystem Targeting
    Can Equip Cannons
    Aux Phaser Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XII [Acc] [Dmg]x2
    1 Hangar Bay – with 1 wing of Danube Runabouts

    The three variants:

    Multi-Mission Surveillance Explorer: Vesta Class

    The Vesta Class also comes equipped with a Sympathetic Fermion Transceiver universal console. The Sympathetic Fermion Transceiver creates a large Fermion Field around your ship. This field will continuously repair you and your allies’ hull and shields while also providing a buff to Starship Particle Generators.

    +15 Power to Auxiliary Systems
    Console Modifications: 3 Tactical, 2 Engineering, 5 Science
    Console – Universal – Sympathetic Fermion Transceiver

    Multi-Mission Reconnaissance Explorer: Aventine Class

    The Aventine Class also comes equipped with a Quantum Field Focus Controller universal console. The Quantum Field Focus Controller can reroute main power to the Deflector Dish and fire a high intensity Quantum Field Focus Phaser through the Main Deflector.

    +10 Power to Auxiliary Systems, +5 Power to Weapon Systems
    Console Modifications: 4 Tactical, 2 Engineering, 4 Science
    Console – Universal – Quantum Field Focus Controller

    Multi-Mission Strategic Explorer: Rademaker Class

    The Rademaker Class also comes equipped with a Multidimensional Wave-Function Analysis Module universal console. Multidimensional Wave-Function Analysis Module can create a Multidimensional Graviton Shield which protects you from control effects such as Gravity Wells and Tractor Beams. It can also repel close targets and reflect the damage of weapons that deal kinetic damage such as torpedoes.

    +10 Power to Auxiliary Systems, +5 Power to Shield Systems
    Console Modifications: 3 Tactical, 3 Engineering, 4 Science
    Console – Universal – Multidimensional Wave-Function Analysis Module

    Console Set

    The Multidimensional Wave-Function Analysis Module, Quantum Field Focus Controller, and Sympathetic Fermion Transceiver may be equipped on any Multi-Mission Science Vessel. They are each part of the Experimental Systems set.

    The two-piece set bonus grants you Chroniton Integrated Quantum Slipsteam. When this set bonus is active it will upgrade your standard Quantum Slipstream. Chroniton Integrated Quantum Slip Steam is the fastest Slipstream Drive in the Federation and offers a 4X Slipstream turn rate modifier.

    The three-piece set bonus grants you a Quantum Focused Shield Bubble. A Quantum Focused Shield Bubble is effectively a perfect shield. While active, your ship’s hull is invulnerable and will take no damage, including damage caused to yourself from Ramming Speed. Your shields too become hardened – the more Auxiliary power the more resistant they become – up to 100%. However, while active, all weapons are offline.

    All special abilities from the Multi-Mission Science Vessel consoles, including the set bonus, are mutually exclusive and only one can be active at a time.

    ---

    I gotta say, I like the look of this stats-wise. I was pretty much set on buying a temporal destroyer, mostly because I wanted dual cannons and gravity well combo on a fed ship and it was either that or the multi-vector thing. But now I may skip that and just wait for the vesta instead.

    I hope the klingon side gets something as nifty.

    WOW, impressive stats. Almost seems OP until you look at the hull points. Experience with BOP's says, unless you're careful, well buffed and attentive, it'll still go *POP* rather quickly. But with the right buffs it could still be powerful. I was initially wowed by the consoles but on re-reading I suspect they won't be as impressive in fact as they seem on paper. Guess we'll find out.

    I don't know, bop's have weak hull AND shields. They're really designed to rely on the battle cloak more than anything.

    This is a science ship, so it's got impressive shielding and should be doing mostly shield-tanking. The hull will still go down fast, but hopefully you're only hitting hull rarely.

    The consoles are definitely up in the air until we see actual numbers, including durations and cool downs. I still kind of like the ship itself, though.

    I'm thinking of flying it mostly like an escort. Dual cannons. Have gravity well III. Use the lieutenant commander universal for a tac boff. It'll be a lot like flying a kar'fi, really.

    If this is really the fastest slip stream, I may have to get it to run the Tour the Universe event also.
