Command the Orion D'var!

By Ambassador Kael | Wed 13 Mar 2024 09:00:00 AM PDT

Starting March 14th, a brand new ship will be available in the Infinity Lock Box on PC. Though many know the Orion throughout history by their stereotype as bloodthirsty pirates, the truth is that no species in the galaxy should be defined by shallow generalities. The Orions of the 23rd Century had interests in science as well as plunder, and they had a ship that was well suited for both. The D’Var class famously nearly took down the original Enterprise, peppering it with attacks at a speed too fast to return fire. But a D’Var class ship also is on record as making an important scientific discovery, being the first to locate the mysterious portal on Krulmuth-B.

Now, you can take the helm of this ship.

Orion D'Var Temporal Science Vessel

The D'Var is an Orion workhorse field research vessel, equipped and optimized for the unusual environments they tend to find themselves in. It specializes in rapid collection and embarkation, and for good reason -- science takes time, and it's a great deal easier to steal someone else's discovery than make a new one. When the worst happens and a priceless alien artifact is indeed stolen, the Temporal Operations specialization proves crucial: simply tagging the fleeing ship with Temporal Anchor is enough to bring them right back to the scene of the steal, allowing the artifact to be repatriated more conveniently. The D'Var is an unusual vessel by most standards, but it's an unusual galaxy by any standard and the results speak for themselves.

This ship comes with a Commander Science/Temporal Ops and a Lt. Commander Engineering/Intel seat.

Console - Universal - Temporal Anchor

Activating this Console anchors the target Foes to their place and time, as well as dealing some Radiation damage via the massive release of chronotions in the area. After a delay, the Foes return to their position at the exact moment of activation and take the Radiation damage again.


Initially developed as means of protecting scientific discoveries from theft by ensuring enemies could not escape, the Temporal Anchor proved useful in other contexts as well. Its primary advantage is in enabling the combination of gravity wells and disruptive technologies, allowing foes to be gathered together, sent flying off into the distance, then returned, allowing the best of both worlds.


This console additionally provides a passive bonus to Flight Speed and Control Expertise.

 

Starship Trait - Temporal Artifact Scan

While this trait is slotted, your ship's sensors will scan the area for chroniton radiation coming from a Temporal Artifact housed aboard an enemy starship. Once the Artifact is located, defeating that ship will drop it into space as a pickup. Collecting an Artifact provides a significant bonus to Critical Severity until leaving the map. This effect has a long cooldown, but eventually another Artifact will be located.
