The Legendary Galaxy Dreadnought Cruiser is a ship born of needs, not wants, and this solemn realization made for a starship that is a presence of sad fear. The Federation wants to strive to be peaceful, and then so the Galaxy-class came to be. It contains weapons to defend itself or others, but at its heart, it’s an exploration ship filled with optimism and families and joy. Conversion into the Galaxy Dreadnought has corrupted this joy and optimism into a weapon of war and open hostility, to spread fear and authority. The time for speaking softly has ended, and as night rises, the time has come to carry that big stick, and demons run at the sight. The Legendary Dreadnought Cruiser, like the other ships of its line, is one of Starfleet’s most intimidating vessels. The third nacelle is an indicator of how the ship is outfitted for war, and the spinal lance and cloaking device drive the point home for anyone who sees them in action. It features an impressively sturdy hull, and other potent defensive systems to back up its firepower.
Purchasing the Legendary Galaxy Dreadnought Cruiser for 6,000 unlocks all existing ship variants.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free|
The Galaxy class was refitted at the turn of the 25th century, after the collapse of the Khitomer Accords in 2399. In response to increased hostility with the Klingon Empire, the newly redesigned ship carries a cloaking device and a devastating spinal lance weapon.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free|
An alternative version of the Galaxy class' refit that features none of the aesthetic differences with the Exploration Cruiser, with the exception of the spinal lance, the third nacelle, and the split main impulse engine.
The Galaxy Beta ship parts must be selected manually through Ship Customization and are not part of a starship preset.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free |
Though similar in layout to the Galaxy, the Monarch class takes on harder edges, banked nacelles, and other structural changes throughout the spaceframe, incorporating lessons learned from its older siblings' 50 years of service.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Venture Exploration Cruiser Refit, 150,000 |
This refit of the Venture class shares the sleeker lines of more modern classes such as the Sovereign.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Yamato Dreadnought Cruiser, 3,000 |
The Yamato-class Dreadnought Cruiser was built for battle with the Federation's current enemies in mind. It was heavily influenced by the advances made in the Andromeda-class Exploration Cruiser's design and has incorporated its state of the art systems to create a truly formidable starship.

First introduced in IDW Publishing's Mirror Broken comic series, this Mirror Universe version of the Galaxy-class dreadnought was commandeered by Jean-Luc Picard's Terran counterpart. It is emblazoned with the insignia of the Terran Empire and distinctive yellow pin-striping.
The Legendary Dreadnought Cruiser also unlocks a unique "Galaxy Gamma" saucer variant, this is the Mirror Galaxy saucer without the Terran pinstriping while retaining a lack of Fleet Emblem and its unique detailing for the underslung Spinal Lance. This Gamma saucer is manually selected through Ship Customization.

The Legendary Galaxy Dreadnought Cruiser comes equipped with [Console - Universal - Saucer Separation], [Console - Universal - Antimatter Spread], and [Console - Universal - Molecular Cohesion Nullifier]. These consoles form the Enhanced Engineering Systems Set.
Phaser Spinal Lance
The Legendary Galaxy Dreadnought Cruiser comes with the built-in Phaser Spinal Lance. While in saucer separation mode, the Phaser Lance becomes a larger more encompassing weapon and can be used against multiple targets for the cost of only a slight damage reduction.
Additionally when separated, the saucer section gains the Antimatter Spread and Phaser Lance ability.
The Legendary Galaxy-class Dreadnought Cruiser supports the following cruiser commands:
- Carrier Command - Attack
- Carrier Command - Escort
- Carrier Command - Intercept
- Carrier Command - Recall
The Legendary Galaxy-class Dreadnought Cruiser features the following specialist seats:
Active Sensor Arrays
As an Intelligence starship, the Legendary Galaxy Dreadnought Cruiser is capable of deploying an Intel sensor drone with the Gather Intelligence ability.
While the target is Vulnerable, one of three Expose Vulnerability abilities can be used. These powerful abilities find a critical weakness in the targeted foe and allow players to briefly exploit it.
- Expose Vulnerability: Critical Systems
- Expose Vulnerability: Defenses
- Expose Vulnerability: Weapon Systems
Intelligence vessels also have a built-in passive ability which renders them undetectable at long range.
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.
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 (1.5 for the Legendary Galaxy-class Dreadnought Cruiser), 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 Legendary Galaxy-class Dreadnought Cruiser may be upgraded to T6-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait.

- With the ship's release on October 21, 2020, there was a bug with this ship's Bridge Officer seating; the Lieutenant Commander Engineering-Command station was not the intended Universal-Command station. It did not initially include the Active Sensor Arrays innate ability synonymous with other Intelligence starships.
- In addition, the blog erroneously states that the Legendary Galaxy Dreadnought Cruiser does not come pre-equipped with the Molecular Cohesion Nullifier console; this is not the case.
- The Mirror Universe skin is based on the I.S.S. Enterprise seen in IDW Publishing's "Star Trek: The Next Generation – Mirror Broken" six issue comic book series.
