Release date: March 17, 2022
The Section 31 Intel Dreadnought Cruiser is a Tier 6 Dreadnought Cruiser which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. All 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. 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 ultra rare chance to drop from a [Infinity Promotion R&D Pack] or a [Infinity Promotion 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 - Section 31 Intel Dreadnought Cruiser [T6]].
Deep beneath the altruism and honor of the United Federation of Planets, a darker underbelly may be found, and those who believe in the old saying that the "ends justify the means" may find like minds within the ranks of the secretive Section 31. Although their clandestine nature may run counter to the concept of fielding large flagships, the needs of this organization occasionally necessitate a strong arm to enforce their drastic measures.
|I||Rapid Repairs||Regenerates 1.25% of your maximum hull every 3 seconds in Space. Twice the amount is regenerated out of combat.|
|II||Enhanced Hull Plating||+25 All Energy Damage Resistance Rating.|
+25 Radiation Damage Resistance Rating.
|III||Devastating Weaponry||+2.5% Critical Chance.|
|IV||Armored Hull||+10% Hull Hitpoints.|
|V||Interference Drones||Your ship's hangars are outfitted with fleets of tiny drones, designed to interfere with incoming fire, and distract enemy targeting sensors. While this trait is slotted, launching Hangar Pets will grant your ship Temporary Hit Points. This will trigger upon activating your Launch ability, even if no new hangar pets are created. Additionally, while you have Temporary Hit Points from any source, all of your summoned pets (hangar, consoles, devices, etc.) deal increased damage. This bonus will be checked once per second, and only affects your pets if they are within 20km of you.|
The Section 31 Intel Dreadnought Cruiser comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Invasive Control Mechanisms].
Dark Mode (Combat Variant)
The Section 31 Intel Dreadnought Cruiser has a special type of cloak that allows the ship to "power down" and essentially run dark, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon powering up known as Dark Mode. Dark Mode is visually unique, but functionally the same as a regular Battle Cloak. This special variant of standard Dark Mode can be activated while in combat.
The Section 31 Intel Dreadnought Cruiser comes with a built-in Swarm Mode, Deploy Swarm. When activated, hundreds of fighter vessels will pour out of your ship, and fire on anything hostile that approaches you. A number of these drones will frequently peel off from the main swarm to attack any larger vessels that approach you.
Activating Swarm Mode will increase your ship’s maneuverability, but at a small price to hull capacity. Swarm Mode cannot be activated while Dark Mode is active.
The Section 31 Intel Dreadnought Cruiser supports the following cruiser commands:
This starship has a single hangar bay equipped with the Section 31 Drone Squadron.
- Carrier Command - Attack
- Carrier Command - Escort
- Carrier Command - Intercept
- Carrier Command - Recall
The Section 31 Intel Dreadnought Cruiser features the following specialist seats:
Active Sensor Arrays
As an Intelligence starship, the Section 31 Intel 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 (1.55 for the Section 31 Intel 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 Section 31 Intel 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.
