The [Nimbus Pirate Distress Call] is a Unique re-usable Ship Device, which summons three support vessels: a Tuffli-class freighter, a Breen Chel Grett-class Cruiser and an Orion Corsair-class Flight Deck Carrier for a short period of time. It does not need to be equipped in a device slot and can be activated from the player's inventory via the powers tray. The device is one of the rewards from completing the “Installation 18” mission. It can only be activated while in combat.

Game Description[]

This device is a distress call beacon that will call in a strike team of Pirate vessels from the groups that roam Nimbus space. These ship captains will not risk their lives on your behalf for very long though, and will leave after 45 sec[1] whether you require further assistance or not!

Cannot be used while piloting a Small Craft.

Notes[]

  • It can only be activated while in combat, with a 5 minute recharge time. It activates a 2 minute shared cooldown on Fleet Support, and other reinforcement beacons.
  • When initially released as part of the Legacy of Romulus on May 21, 2013, the [Nimbus Pirate Distress Call] summoned a Hirogen Hunter Escort vessel, which had the Subnucleonic Beam ability. This ability was unintentional[2] and the Hirogen ship was later replaced by the Orion Corsair-class Flight Deck Carrier on January 30, 2014[3]. In addition, the device originally could be used by players in shuttles. Starting on February 6, 2014, the device is no longer accessible from the powers list while players are in a shuttle[4].
  • The summoned ships actually remain for 45 seconds, even though the tooltip full item description do not reflect this correctly.
  • The device does not need to be equipped to use. As long as the item is in the player's inventory, the ability can be added to the tray and used in combat.
