  • Exceptional kinetic turret armament, along with phasers to deal with shielded opponents.

  • Limited classification means it will be targeted very often.
  • Has a poor health pool.
  • DPS is entirely hull focused, minus the phaser spinals.
  • Extremely expensive.
  • Underwhelming overall damage output compared to other Limited Battleships.


  • Do not use this ship in a battle unless you are sure your ship won't be at risk of being destroyed.
  • Use this ship as a distraction, or as a support ship in PvP engagements.
  • Don't try to tank in this ship, it isn't capable of taking a beating unlike ships like the Sovereign or Cutlass.
  • Keep moving fast in this ship during a battle, it's one of the key things that helps this ship survive.
