Release Notes - November 12, 2010
 
New Klingon Ships!
  • The new Klingon ships will be available in game and in the C-store:
  • Varanus Fleet Support Vessel
    • Gorn-designed Science Vessel with integrated subsystem targeting.
    • 3 fore, 3 aft weapon slots.
    • Lt. Tactical, Ens. Engineering, Lt. Engineering, Lt. Cmd. Science, and Cmd. Science officer seats.
    • 2 Tactical, 2 Engineering, and 4 Science console slots.
    • Crew: 750
    • Special ability: This ship can launch up to 5 Repair Platforms that will deploy drones to assist itself or allied ships.
      • Each repair platform can only spawn 2 repair drones. So a full complement of repair platforms can provide healing drones for every member of the team.
      • If your drones get destroyed you can fly back to the platform and get more.

    • 4 fore, 4 aft weapon slots.

    • Crew: 1200 (from 800)
    • Special ability: The player is able to deploy a wing of Orion Interceptor Fighters through a click ability. These fighters drop mines, disable subsystems, and capture crew from enemy ships.
      • Known Issue: The Icon for this special ability is currently a plain white icon. It will be fixed soon.
  • B’rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit
    • Klingon Fighter.

Skills and Abilities
  • The Bridge Officer ability, Photonic Officer, now has Klingon or Starfleet-specific audio when used.
  • Fire at Will, Mines, Tricobalt Device, and High Yield Plasma Torpedo no longer "misfire."
  • Fixed an issue causing Turret ship weapons to drain energy for a little longer than expected, causing players to drain too much power when firing multiple turrets in succession.
  • All player Captain skills now display messages to include the names of the ships they modify.
  • The Vor’cha retrofit now uses the Battle Cruiser Retrofit skill.
  • Updated the Klingon skill tree at the General tier with new and altered captain skills.
