Traveling through time and space & Doing timey wimy stuff.

It’s easy to cling to your principles when you’re standing on a vessel with its bulkheads intact, manned by a crew that’s not starving.“– Rudolph Ransom2375 (“Equinox“)

During this year of November 2021 and the year of 2021 of the eleventh anniversary of Star Trek Online in which during that month there’s been many surprises of updates one is the new hulling plating customisations of The Galaxy Class Starship in which introduces more of the updates from the tenth Anniversary out from the legendary bundles in Star trek Online Legacy .. in which many the standard hulling textures that’s given throughout each series in which various new hulling outfitting’s that’s been displayed throughout each star trek series. In which come with in which this month of September 2020 there’s been numerous amounts of texturing extremely detailing in which to get that sense of realism …..

During this November 2021  is the introduction of new Theme is being Agile Small Cute, fast, stealthy adaptively adorable introducing the Equinox Pilot Scout Ship – Tier Six – the very youngest sister but cutest like her eldest sister the Rhode Island, Nova Class in which are within their own rights   the Equinox the class name comes from the 24th Century Nova Class- USS Equinox NCC 72381 featured in connection with the Delta Quadrant with USS Voyager storyline also being pulled from the Federation from the Caretaker. This science vessel was constructed at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards and launched in early 2370…..

By 2371, Captain Rudolph Ransom assumed command of the vessel. The Equinox was a limited role starship, designed for short-term planetary research and boasted a top speed of only warp 8; however, it was one of the first vessels to be equipped with an Emergency Medical Hologram. As a Nova-class science vessel, it was much smaller and thus not as well armed or provisioned as larger starships, such as the Intrepid-class had been, while Captain Ransom himself was primarily a scientist, and with arguably little command experience; he showed tendencies towards misdirection and overall avoidance of direct combat.

In early 2371, the Equinox was pulled into the Delta Quadrant by the entity known as the Caretaker. During the vessel’s first week in the region, 39 crewmembers – roughly half the crew – were killed in a conflict with the Krowtonan Guard. The Krowtonan Guard claimed that the Equinox had violated their borders, but Captain Ransom gave the order to continue through their space. The decision would haunt Ransom for the rest of his life.

As years passed struggling to survive in the Delta Quadrant, the crew of the Equinox believed that the principles of the Federation and the regulations of Starfleet would not be effective in their situation (in a direct contrast to the similar situation of USS Voyager and Kathryn Janeway who insistently clung to the rules). The few members of the now small crew came close together often neglecting protocol. Addressing each other by first name was an example of this…

The Equinox Class is cute, nimble and versatile Nova-class experiences a resurrection for the modern era in this updated and improved design. The state-of-the-art propulsion and maneuverability of this successor, coupled with numerous improvements to its bridge station customization options, has reclassified this already-beloved class as a Scout Ship. It retains its scientific focus on short-range research and planetary surveying, while also embracing a modern need for improved starship speed at both impulse and warp speeds…. Its newest bridge stationing keeping comes with Commander Science / Pilot Specialist Bridge Officer seat.

Tactically it can be armed in with two ways depending on you bridge crew abilities also yours, yours as captain abilities. Basically the ship is counter to the Defiant and Saber class variants with more of style of being not a single hulling, small, nimble and cute basically also it’s a Dual cannon/ dual beam array/ torpedoes and turrets at the rear   ship in which the bridge stations can give you many options Bridge Officer Stations: One Commander Science / Pilot,  One Ensign Universal, One Lieutenant Universal, Two Lt Commander Universal… in with  the consoles of three Tactical, two Engineering and Five sciences… your advantages is with the agile turn rates of sixteen with inertia of seventy five, with plus five of weapons and engine power in which best to equip with engine to weapons warp core in which keeping your auxiliary power to power up your subsystems…

Console – Universal – Nucleogenic Ignition Synthetic nucleogenic energy can be used to generate an inverse reaction within the warp cores of enemy vessels, causing them to generate radiation-like energy that is harmful to that ship’s connected EPS conduits, but can be beneficial to other nearby starships when their deflector shields are properly configured. This technology is designed to replicate and emit a pulse of synthetic nucleogenic energy across a wide area. Each enemy ship in the area will suffer the deleterious effects of this injection, while being forced to restore hull and shields of your allies in their vicinity.

This console also provides a passive bonus to Control Expertise and Shield Regeneration.

Starship Trait – Synthetic Good Fortune Activating any Control Bridge Officer Ability or any Pilot Bridge Officer Ability will grant a minor, but long-duration, bonus to global Critical Hit Chance, along with increases to Starship Control Expertise. These bonuses last for an extended duration and are allowed to stack to high values, but increment in very small amounts.

This Starship Trait also provides a passive boost to travel speed in Sector Space.
