The standard Nova class design

The Federation Nova-class starship is a set of starship classes from the 24th century and redesigns from 2409 onwards.

The Nova class was designed for short-term planetary research missions. It was placed in service starting in the mid-to-late 24th century. It is not typically suitable for combat operations. In Star Trek canon, the Nova design has a maximum speed of warp 8 and approximately eighty crew members.

See the template to the right for a list of playable starships and NPC mobs in Star Trek Online based on the Nebula. Most ships parts from the design variants are interchangeable where the relevant ship has been bought.

Nova class

Class Information
Ship Variant - FED - Nova Science Vessel.png
Nova class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
Nova patch.png

The Nova class was designed for short-term planetary research missions. It was placed in service starting in the mid-to-late 24th century. It is not typically suitable for combat operations. In Star Trek canon, the Nova design has a maximum speed of warp 8 and approximately eighty crew members.

One unique feature of the Nova class is its Waverider shuttle, which is located in a special docking port on the ventral side of the primary hull, similar to that of the Aeroshuttle on the Intrepid-class. Unlike the Aeroshuttle, however, the Waverider is not currently included in the game. The Nova class also shares a nacelle design in-game with the Oslo-class Heavy Escort.

Ship Variant - FED - Aurora Science Vessel (T2).jpg
Aurora class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
Like its sister Nova-class ships, the Aurora class vessels were designed for short-range scientific missions, as well as scouting during military operations. Its slim, aerodynamic design was intended to maximize the efficiency of its high-frequency warp envelope.
Ship Variant - FED - Quasar Science Vessel (T2).jpg
Quasar class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
Named for the distant black holes that are the most luminous objects in the universe, the Quasar class boasts some of the most advanced technology available for small scouting and science vessels. It and its sister ships are equipped with deflector shields to prevent space debris and objects from damaging the starship.
Ship Variant - FED - Rhode Island Science Vessel Refit.png
Rhode Island class
SKIN UNLOCK: Rhode Island Science Vessel Refit, 37,500 Refined dilithium icon.png
The Rhode Island class is a refit of the Nova class for the 25th century. The first vessel of its kind, U.S.S. Rhode Island is commanded by Captain Harry Kim. More capable a ship than the Nova and rivaling her sister ships, the refit can handle combat with heavy Klingon warships from 2404 and travel at warp speeds high enough to conduct deep space exploration.
Ship Variant - FED - Mirror Universe Science Vessel Retrofit (T5).png

Mirror

Ship Variant - FED - Equinox Pilot Scout Ship.png
Equinox class
SKIN UNLOCK: Equinox Pilot Scout Ship, 3000Zen small icon.png
The nimble and versatile Nova-class experiences a resurrection for the modern era in this updated and improved design. The state-of-the-art propulsion and maneuverability of this successor, coupled with numerous improvements to its bridge station customization options, has reclassified this already-beloved class as a Scout Ship. It retains its scientific focus on short-range research and planetary surveying, while also embracing a modern need for improved starship speed at both impulse and warp speeds.

Notes[]

  • Both the Nova and Rhode Island-class models received revamps in late 2021 as part of Season Twenty-four: Reflections and the release of the Equinox-class. They were both given access to a new screen-accurate hull materials, as well as the new Type 7A hull material and all "legendary" materials.
