Turret Fabrication creates a fixed position energy weapons platform that will attack nearby enemies. Depending on the level created, it will use a different type of attack, from single beams, to a Gatling-type rapid burst mode. The damage type and associated special effects depend on the user's affiliation. Starfleet turrets use phasers, KDF turrets use disruptors and RRF turrets use plasma weapons.

Like many of the Engineers offensive fabrications, and a Tactical players' Security Escort, these can be useful in laying down additional fire from multiple vectors, allowing for opportunities for flanking damage.

  • Your Captain requires a kit to use this ability. Bridge officers do not.
  • The extra turrets that can spawn when you have a Fabrication Engineer slotted are limited to one set per character. If they are already active when they spawn again, the previous bonus turrets will disappear.
    • You can however have one set of bonus turrets from your captain, and another, different set of bonus turrets summoned from one of your engineering bridge officers.
