- This page is for the playable starship. For the NPC vessel, see Vedcrid Hive.
The Hur'q Vedcrid Hive-class Dreadnought Carrier is a Tier 6 Dreadnought Carrier / Engineering Carrier hybrid which may be flown by characters of any faction. 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 has a very rare chance to drop from a [Promotional R&D Pack] or a [Promotional Duty Officer Pack]. This box is bound to you until a ship is chosen. 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 - Hur'q Vedcrid Hive Dreadnought Carrier [T6]].
This ship could also be purchased as an account-unlock from the Zen Store as a possible choice from the Mudd's Choice Pack of Dread! as part of "Mudd's Market", available from November 20, 2020. Like all items in the Market, the Bundle periodically goes on massive discounts (upwards of 75% during special promotional sales).

Functionally little more than mobile starbases, Vedcrid Hives are specialized for the harvesting of resources that keep the two-thousand-year Hur'q cycles intact. Despite a relatively civilian design (when seen through the unique lens of Hur'q society), these vessels are capable of a surprising level of self-defense, and can easily stand toe-to-toe with warships of other species. With minimal retrofitting, their harmonic interfaces can be made to interact with more conventional technology, and can thus be flown by most sentient species.
Despite its name, the Vedcrid Hive is a hybrid Dreadnought-Engineering Carrier, with the weapon and device slots of a Dreadnought Carrier but the Engineering-focused bridge officer seating, console slots and Starship Mastery package of an Engineering Carrier.

The Hur'q Vedcrid Hive Dreadnought Carrier 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:
The Hur'q Vedcrid Hive-class Dreadnought Carrier 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.
The Hur'q Vedcrid Hive-class Dreadnought Carrier features the following specialist seats:
- Commander Engineering/Command
Automated Defense Screens
Automated Defense Screens is an innate ability unique to this starship, active at all times while in Combat. Each shield facing has a chance to add a stack of Automated Defense every few seconds when you receive damage - it grants the increased All Damage Resistance Rating and upon a sufficient number of stacks are obtained, a brief immunity to that damage.
These 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.
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:
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 (1.7 for the Hur'q Vedcrid Hive-class Dreadnought Carrier), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
|Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP|
By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Hur'q Vedcrid Hive-class Dreadnought Carrier may be upgraded to T6-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait.
