Command the Protostar Temporal Science Spearhead

By Ambassador Kael | Mon 11 Sep 2023 08:00:00 AM PDT

The Protostar Temporal Science Spearhead [T6] was built around a prototype warp drive built around a literal protostar, and it represents a bold step into the unknown for Starfleet. The first ship of the class was drawn into a temporal anomaly fit to give the Department of Temporal Investigations nightmares, disentangling a disastrous first contact that threatened to leave two civilizations in ruins. Stranded across the galaxy and crewed by escaped child laborers led by a holographic advisor Janeway, the Protostar has proven itself to be a resilient and adaptable home for the wayward and hope for the hopeless. The advanced shielding technology required to keep its tiny star contained has borne fruit for protecting the hull, adding to the overall resilience and flexibility that is the hallmark of Starfleet's experimental ship design, and the integrated Living Construct onboard demonstrates the virtue of durability when keeping an open mind in the face of hostility. Whatever your troubles and wherever your home, the Protostar will get you there safely.

Console - Universal - Reformed Living Construct

Activating this Console causes the Living Construct to breach the systems of surrounding vessels, locking weapons on each other and engaging each other in combat. Does not affect Player starships or living stellar creatures.

The Vau N'Akat Living Construct was a powerful weapon against the Federation, but through persistence, understanding, and no small amount of gumption, a youth named Gwyndala was able to intercede and save the Federation fleet from ruin. How precisely a more friendly Living Construct came to serve aboard this Protostar-class vessel is highly classified, but it promises to be as powerful an ally as it once was an adversary.

This console additionally provides a passive bonus to Starship Control Expertise and Shield Power.


  •     Targets self
  •   Takes over up to 8 nearby starships for X sec, Confusing them, Placating them, and engaging them in combat with each other
  • While Confused and Placated, Foes receive Y% Bonus Damage (scales with Control Expertise and Aux Power) 


Starship Trait – Hexgrid Shield Focusing

After achieving level 5 in your Protostar Temporal Science Spearhead, you will unlock the Hexgrid Shield Focusing starship trait. While this trait is slotted, manually redistributing shields grants Critical Severity based on the total capacity of the forward Shields, up to a cap of 60,000 forward Shields.


This vessel has a powerful and experimental proto-warp drive that improves and replaces the slipstream drive used in sector space. It also replaces the visual elements of transwarp.
