Release date: February 2, 2010
The Sovereign-class Assault Cruiser is a Tier 5 (Level 40) Cruiser 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 20,000 .
Like most Cruisers, they also enjoy a bonus to their subsystem power granting +5 to Weapons, Engines, Shields and Auxiliary. The most well known Assault Cruiser is the U.S.S. Enterprise-E which was commanded by former Captain made Ambassador Jean-Luc Picard.
Purchasing the Legendary Sovereign Miracle Worker Assault Cruiser for 30,000 unlocks all existing ship variants.
The Sovereign class has an elongated saucer section connected to the main hull with a streamlined and interconnected neck area. The main hull has two up-swept pylons attached to it which lead to the ship's nacelles. The Enterprise-E is perhaps the most famous ship of the class.
The set includes the "Sovereign Beta" nacelles, which have animated bussard collectors. You may also choose standard "Sovereign" nacelles which are static; while not matching the Sovereign's canon look, this allows the collectors to be affected by material changes and shield visuals.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Legendary Sovereign Miracle Worker Assault Cruiser, 30,000 |
The Sovereign class refit as envisioned by John Eaves for the final scene of Star Trek: Nemesis. In the film, the U.S.S. Enterprise-E survives a devastating battle with the Reman ship Scimitar and is undergoing a refit to repair the damage from the battle. For the sequence showing the Enterprise being repaired, Eaves created a new version of the Enterprise that had some structural and material differences. The updated design sported larger pylons, adjustments to the saucer and engineering hull, and a darker, more metallic material.

The Majestic is the longest of all the Assault Cruiser classes, although only due to its nacelles having a spiked edge at the aft section. The design is otherwise quite typical of a Starfleet Cruiser. In terms of complexity of design, it is not as smooth as the Sovereign, but not as rugged as the Noble. It also shares several design features with the Typhoon class, such as the design of the saucer section and nacelle pylons.

This model is similar in design to the Sovereign. It has a bigger and more circular saucer section of the hull. The main hull is smaller than both the Majestic and Sovereign. It also has two up-swept pylons connecting the nacelles at roughly a 45 degree angle. Both the saucer and main hull are quite rugged in design compared to the other two types.
|Regent Assault Cruiser Refit, 2,500 |
Like many 25th century Starfleet refit vessels, the Regent class by default uses a brighter, stark white hull paint base, with black highlights in the default "Andromeda" pattern. Its design is much more elongated than the other Assault Cruiser classes, and features a flatter saucer tapering into an engineering section derived from the Odyssey class split-hull. The Regent also features bright dome-shaped structures on the underside of the saucer and on the dorsal hull, and the nacelle pylons are swept forward.
If Regent nacelles and pylons are paired with a shorter hull option (such as the Sovereign), the nacelles models will clip into the saucer.

The Imperial class is most notable for the prominent build up along the upper surface of the neck and rear of the saucer section. Its saucer is notably thinner than any other Assault Cruiser. The pylons are also very rigid and nacelles are placed very forward on the design.
This class was previously available as an extra ship skin in the Zen Store, but as of Season 7 is exclusive to the Fleet Assault Cruisers. Players who purchased the skin prior to the Season 7 update may still use the Imperial skin on any Assault Cruisers they own.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Archon Intel Assault Cruiser, 3,000 |
The Tier 6 Archon class Intel Assault Cruiser is based on the successful design of the Sovereign class, however it has been heavily retrofitted with state-of-the-art technology.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Vizier Command Assault Cruiser, 14,000 |
OR T6 Fleet Vizier Command Assault Cruiser, 20,000 , 5

- Prior to the game's release, Cryptic Studios prominently advertised the NX-91001 (image to the right), a refit of the Sovereign class. This design was ultimately never implemented into the game, but was reworked into the Noble class, albeit without the sensor pod between the nacelles, for its appearance in the game and on the book cover for The Needs of the Many.
- Players can mimic the appearance of the U.S.S. Enterprise-E on Sovereign class Assault Cruisers by choosing the default Sovereign preset in the ship customization editor.
- The Sovereign-class model was quietly redone in late 2016 to be more faithful to the canon appearance of the class in the latter 3 TNG films.
