The Fleet Cardenas-class Command Dreadnought Cruiser is a Tier 6 Dreadnought Cruiser 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 any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 20,000 Fleet Credits and 5 Fleet Ship Module icon.png, so long as the player's Fleet has a Tier I Starbase Shipyard and one Starbase Military Fleet Ship Provision. If the player already owns the Buran Command Dreadnought Cruiser from the Zen Store, the Fleet Ship Module cost is reduced to 1.

Overview[]

The Fleet Cardenas-class Dreadnought Cruiser is a powerful frontline vessel, ready to lead from the frontline of whatever conflict it finds itself in. Fleet starships are specifically designed to support your Fleet. They are built to the highest standard and have increased Hull Hit Points, Shield Strength, and an additional Console slot.

SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Cardenas class was one of the largest ship types utilized by Starfleet in mid 23rd century. The design featured a large oval saucer connected to four warp nacelles by a small engineering hull. The U.S.S. Buran captained by Gabriel Lorca was a vessel of this class.

Named after the famed Starfleet flagship lost in the Federation-Klingon War of 2256, the Buran class represents a modern interpretation of the original Cardenas. It features the same basic hull layout with changes in design matching the innovations of the early 25th century.
