The Courage-class Command Science Destroyer is a Tier 6 Science Destroyer 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 a [Special Requisition Choice Pack - Tier 6 Promotional Ship Choice Pack], which are available during special promotional events. The boxed ship is not bound and so may be traded to other players or bought and sold on the Exchange for energy credits under the name [Special Requisition Pack - Courage Command Science Destroyer [T6]].

Overview[]

Official promo video for the Courage Command Science Destroyer.

Centuries of starship design tradition from races across the Milky Way galaxy have allowed certain aspects of their construction to be matters that are designed by-rote, and rarely questioned or re-examined. Deflector dishes and emitters are mounted in the front, while impulse engines belong in the back, as an example. However, once in a while a group of ship designers decides to be courageous and inventive enough to buck trends, and explore new possibilities. The Courage-class is the culmination of similar exploration, as a starship designed to treat directional bias as a matter of purpose and forethought, rather than an afterthought.

This unique vessel is supported by a series of subsystems that allow the ship to transform its capabilities by reversing its direction. In its default configuration, a large secondary deflector and specialized set of sensors and emitters fuel the ship's scientific pursuits. However, by reversing its orientation, the ship's systems are redirected into a bulwark of defensive tactical capabilities that would not be out of place on its battlecruiser peers.

Abilities[]

Universal consoles[]

The Courage Command Science Destroyer comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Force Projector].

  • 24px Force Projector

Specialization seating

The Courage-class Command Science Destroyer features the following specialist seats:

Inspiration Abilities

The Courage Command Science Destroyer features special Inspiration Abilities. Every time one of the team members activates a bridge officer ability, player gains an Inspiration point. When the player's Inspiration meter is full, the following abilities become available:

Battle Cloak

The Courage-class Command Science Destroyer has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking. It has a unique cloaking effect as seen in Season 3 of Star Trek: Discovery.

Science and Tactical modes

A built-in Tactical Mode ability allows the Courage-class Command Science Destroyer to switch between a default Science Mode and Tactical Mode.

  • Tactical Mode (Courage) icon (Federation).png Tactical Mode

Activating the Tactical Mode transforms the starship from a typical Science Vessel into a combat-oriented Destroyer. This disables most of advanced science systems while activating additional tactical systems, and downgrades the Commander Science bridge officer station into a Lieutenant Commander, while the Lieutenant Commander Tactical station is upgraded to Commander. In Tactical mode, the ship's shield capacity will be reduced.

Science Mode Tactical Mode

  • Disabled Experimental Weapon
  • -20% Hull Capacity
  • Tactical-oriented bridge officer seating:
    • Commander Tactical-Command Commander Tactical/Command 
    • Lieutenant Engineering Lieutenant Engineering 
    • Lieutenant Commander Science-Command Lieutenant Commander Science/Command 
    • Lieutenant Commander Universal Lieutenant Commander Universal 
    • Ensign Universal Ensign Universal
  • Activated Experimental Weapon
  • +20% Maximum Hull Capacity

  • Disabled Secondary Deflector
  • -20% Shield Capacity

Tactical Mode may be deactivated at any time to return to the default Science Mode.

Sensor Analysis[]

Sensor Analysis is an active toggle ability available to the Courage-class Command Science Destroyer while it is in Science Mode. While maintaining a Sensor Lock on a target, the player gains a stacking effect that either improves the damage and power drain against an enemy, or improves any heal directed towards an ally. This effect stacks every 3 seconds, to a maximum of 6 stacks after 18 continuous seconds. To maintain the desired effect, the player must hold the sensor lock.

Subsystem Targeting[]

The Courage-class Command Science Destroyer comes with built-in Subsystem Targeting abilities that it may use while it is in Science Mode. These built-in abilities stay at Rank I and do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier Science starships. They are separate from Subsystem Targeting abilities gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities.

Activating a subsystem targeting ability will upgrade all energy weapons to inflict a stacking power drain on the foe's targeted subsystem for the next 10 seconds. They will also have a small chance to knock the targeted subsystem offline for a short duration.

Experimental Weapon[]

The Courage-class Command Science Destroyer comes with an Experimental Weapon slot, which is only activated while in Tactical Mode. 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 with the unique [Coherent Integrity Projector]. The Coherent Integrity Projector leverages your ship's structural integrity fields to generate a harmonic projectile that deals heavy kinetic damage to your target. A portion of this damage will bypass the target's shields. The damage inflicted by this weapon scales proportionally to your Maximum Hull Capacity at the time it is fired (scaling starts at 100,000 and continues up to 250,000).

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 (1.45 for the Courage-class Command Science Destroyer), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

T6-X upgrade

By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Courage-class Command Science Destroyer may be upgraded to T6-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait.
