 ~Blockade Runner Escort Variants

Release date: October 1, 2021

The Appalachia-class Blockade Runner Escort is a Tier 6 Escort which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. The faction restrictions of this starship can be removed by having a level 65 KDF character or by purchasing the Cross Faction Flying unlock from the Zen Store. This starship can be used from any level upon completion of the tutorial experience. As you level up, this ship gains additional hull, weapon slots, and console slots.

Players can obtain this starship from the Zen Store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png. This ship can be purchased individually, or as part of the Blockade Runner Bundle for 5,000 Zen small icon.png.

Overview[]

Official promo video for the Appalachia Blockade Runner Escort.

This well-rounded escort is durable, agile and outfitted with an excessive amount of weapon mounts, by Starfleet standards. Redundant power couplings run along the length of nearly every subsystem, cross-linking them with the ship's various energy and torpedo emitters, ensuring that all weapon systems remain operational for as long as possible in any conflict, regardless of the damage the ship may receive in return.

Class Information
Steamrunner class.jpg
Steamrunner class
Steamrunner class aft.jpg
Aft
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Steamrunner-class starship's design serves as the basis for the 25th-century Zephyr-class Heavy Escort, and pioneered many of the Zephyr's signature design features. These include unusual catamaran nacelles that are mounted directly onto the saucer section and a trailing secondary hull, suspended between the nacelles. Thus the Steamrunner's nacelles effectively double as the pylons connecting the saucer and secondary hull.

Unlike the Zephyr class, though, the Steamrunner's deflector is not mounted on the saucer but on the trailing secondary hull, akin to the mission/weapons pod on an Akira-class ship. Like the NX-class escort, the secondary hull hangs below the saucer, with the connecting struts angling down. The saucer itself resembles an upside-down spade blade, sloping downward from the nacelles.

SKIN UNLOCK: Free
This variant of the Steamrunner class has its impulse engines mounted on the pylons connecting the secondary hull to the nacelles, rather than on the primary hull. It also has altered livery.

This is the default skin when commissioning a Blockade Runner Escort.

Specialization seating

The Appalachia-class Blockade Runner Escort features the following specialist seats:

Experimental Weapon[]

The Appalachia-class Blockade Runner Escort comes with an Experimental Weapon slot. This additional slot does not fit standard weapons. Unlike standard starship weapons, Experimental weapons are not affected by weapon firing modes, such as those granted by bridge officer abilities.
This vessel comes equipped with the [Experimental Hull Spike Battery]. This experimental piece of weaponry was designed to deal catastrophic damage to a target starship's hull by bypassing its shields entirely and then drilling through the starship's armoring directly into the vulnerable starship components.

Standard configuration[]

Federation starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.


Scaling starship

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment slots and seating[]

As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, science console slots and available bridge officer (boff) abilities will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Hull strength[]

This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.15 for the Appalachia-class Blockade Runner Escort), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

T6-X upgrade

By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Appalachia-class Blockade Runner Escort may be upgraded to T6-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait.
