 Fleet Galaxy Dreadnought

Star Trek Online Season 8 STO MMORPG F2P Sci-Fi MMO Game Legacy of Romulus
Fleet Galaxy Dreadnought

The first time the Galaxy Dreadnought was introduced to the franchise was in the series finale of Star Trek: The Next Generation titled “All Good Things.” I don’t think any of us can forget the visual of a high speed Enterprise-D decloaking and vertically charging towards the Klingon vessel that was set out to destroy Captain Picard and the TNG crewmembers onboard the U.S.S. Pasteur, firing a massive phaser beam out of the Spinal Phaser Lance, obliterating the KDF Vessel with one powerful shot, and speeding through the debris with 3 nacelles on its back. Such a strong scene has certainly remained one of the most memorable in all of TNG lore.

The Fleet Dreadnought is also capable of equipping the following:

  • Universal Cloak Console – The Fleet Galaxy Dreadnought will support the use of the Universal Cloak Console, but will not come with the console itself (If you own the C-Store Galaxy Dreadnought, you can equip the console from that ship onto the Fleet version).
  • Hangar Bay – The Fleet Galaxy Dreadnought will have one Hangar Bay Slot, filled with 1 Type 8 Shuttle pet, although it can also equip any standard Federation hanger pet.
  • Saucer Separation – The Fleet Galaxy Dreadnought will also support Saucer Separation. The Fleet Galaxy Dreadnought does not come with the Saucer Separation Console itself (You may equip it if you have purchased the Galaxy Class Exploration Cruiser Retrofit from the C-Store, which includes the console).
    • The separated saucer pet of a Fleet Galaxy Dreadnought has a more tactical flavor than the standard Galaxy Saucer pet. It is equipped with Dual Phaser Cannons, and a mini-Phaser Lance.
    • Phaser Lance Wide Beam – When the Saucer is separated, the Fleet Galaxy Dreadnought’s Phaser Lance standard beam becomes a Wide Beam attack (like a sawed-off shotgun). Damage is only slightly reduced, but the affect area is much larger.
  • Antimatter Spread on Saucer – When equipping the Antimatter Spread console on the Fleet Galaxy Dreadnought, the separated saucer pet will gain the Antimatter Spread ability.


  • Set Bonus – The Antimatter Spread Console and Saucer Separation Console will enjoy a 2 piece set bonus. Equipping both will grant you:
    • +20 Starship Starship Hull Plating skill
    • +20 Starship Armor Reinforcement skill
    • +2 Turn Rate bonus


NOTE: Details are subject to change.
