Oberth-class
 ~Science Vessel Variants

The Oberth-class Light Science Vessel is a Tier 1 (Level 1) Science Vessel which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. The 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 any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 15,000 Refined dilithium icon.png. This ship was previously available on its own from the Zen Store; players that purchased it from there can still reclaim it from there on all their characters.

The Grissom class was a 25th century Federation starship type, a light science vessel class in Starfleet service in the 2410s decade.

Abilities[]

Universal console[]

The Light Science Vessel comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Enhanced Plasma Manifold]. This universal console may be placed in any console slot and when activated provides a short-duration increase to auxiliary, engine, and shield power levels, as well as repairing disabled auxiliary, engine, and shield subsystems.

Sensor Analysis[]

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.

Standard configuration[]

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.
