Science Team is a shield repair and science debuff cleansing ability. It does not scale with Auxiliary power and has lower global and basic cooldown, compared to other shield healing abilities.

Basic Information[]

  • Profession: Science
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: Science Team repairs shield damage for your own ship or an ally and removes any science debuff for the duration. Can be activated even if you are held or disabled.

Detailed Information[]

Ability Ranks[]

Ability/User Rank CD Ability Effects
Rank I: Ensign
(in Tier 1 ship)
30 sec
  • 450 Shield Regeneration applied once to each facing

Rank II: Lieutenant
(in Tier 2 ship)
30 sec
  • 900 Shield Regeneration applied once to each facing
  • Removes science debuffs for 5 sec

  • The numbers given above are based on 0 points in the Starship Shield Restoration skill.
  • The heal provided by Science Team depends heavily on three factors.
  • Originally, using any team ability (Science Team, Engineering Team, and Tactical Team) would cause a 15 second shared cooldown on other team abilities. This shared cooldown was removed in the patch released on March 6th, 2014.[1] Now, using Science Team will only start a self cooldown as well as a duplicate cooldown on any other Science Team ability the player may have, but Engineering Team and Tactical Team will be unaffected.
  • Fractional points in skills, which do not show in the Star Trek Online interface, will affect the formula below. This may cause the formula to be lower than the value displayed in the game. Items such as Threat-Scaling Science Consoles will contribute to this.
  • Formula for Heal
    • Heal = ((Ship Tier + 4) / 2) * ((Ability Rank + 2) / 3) * ((Skill / 200) + 1) * 450
  • Usage: It can also be used as a counter to many debilitating science debuffs such as Jam Sensors. Example: NPC 1 (Or Player 1) activates Jam sensors to Player 2. Player 2 seeing the signs of Jam sensors (target vanishes and sparkles around player 1 ship) activates Science Team to clear the science debuff and NPC/Player 1 is once again visible.
