The Gorn Varanus-class Support Vessel is a Tier 5 (Level 40) Science Vessel which may be flown by Klingon Defense Force characters, including Klingon Empire-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. All 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.
Players can obtain this starship from the Zen Store for 2,000 under the name Varanus Support Vessel.
This ship can also be obtained by Klingon Empire players for free upon reaching level 61 by using their free Starship Requisition token. Lifetime Subscribers will receive one of these tokens at level 50 as well. Note that obtaining this starship via the rank-up Starship Requisition token will not unlock it for your entire account, nor will it apply the fleet discount.

The Varanus class was designed by the Gorn Hegemony, which was absorbed into the Klingon Defense Force. The vessel has a long, narrow, compact design with warp nacelles mounted close to the primary hull.

Sensor Analysis is an active toggle ability. 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.
The Gorn Varanus-class Support Vessel comes with built-in Subsystem Targeting abilities. 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.
- Target Auxiliary Subsystems I
- Target Weapons Subsystems I
- Target Engines Subsystems I
- Target Shields Subsystems I
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.
Klingon 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.
By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Gorn Varanus-class Support Vessel may be upgraded to T5-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait.
Note that upgrading the Gorn Varanus Fleet Support Vessel, the fleet version of the Gorn Varanus Support Vessel, will not apply the upgrade to this starship.
