Starfleet Science Vessel Classification Starships

 

In starship classification, a science vessel (or research vessel) was a limited-role starship. It was not well armed, but instead carried several laboratories, advanced sensors, and in some cases, advanced deflector shields.

Ships of this class were used for scientific research missions, such as observing the collapse of a star, mapping newly discovered planets and nebulae, or simply being an isolated location for hazardous experiments. Most science vessels were not designed for long term missions. Popular Science Vessels are the Olympic, Interpid, Nova and Oberth Classes.

In Star Trek Online Federation Science Vessels are medium-sized, versatile ships. They have good all-round performance compared to escorts and cruisers, and have their weaker hulls compensated for by stronger shields.
Science vessels are typically deployed in research and exploration missions, but are also effective in combat using powerful buffs, debuffs, and shield healing abilities, in addition to integrated sub-system targetting.

Compared to other Federation vessels, Science Vessels have weak
hulls and strong shields, gaining a 30% bonus to shield strength over
Cruisers of the same tier. All Federation Science Vessels have 3 device slots and gain a bonus +15 auxiliary power.

Federation Science vessels come with built-in abilities. These
abilities do not automatically rank up when acquiring higher tier
Science starships and must be gained through Tactical Space Bridge officer abilities.

After activating a subsystem targeting ability, the player will have 30 seconds to attack an enemy ship with any form of beam weapon. The attack will lower power to that system, and have a small chance of completely taking the system offline. If the system is taken offline it renders all abilities that use that subsystem temporarily inert. For
example, if you target the shields and subsequently take them offline, then all of the enemies shield facings will go down.

The Sensor Analysis passive ability grants the player a stacking damage bonus of 3.33% per minute against a single target whilst the player maintains target lock on an enemy. Once the player switches targets the bonus is reset.

Bellow is a table containing statistics for all Federation Science Vessels.
