The Game dev’s are very excited to announce the release of the Hestia Class Advanced Escort. This Tier 6 starship is based upon the original design of the Prometheus Class Multi-Vector Advanced Escort. Like other Tier 6 ships, it has been heavily upgraded to include a powerful new console effective for hunting for STO Credits, starship trait and a 2410 visual update.
Items and Abilities for Hunting STO Credits
The Hestia Class Advanced Escort comes equipped with the High-Energy Plasma Expulsers universal console. Specially designed to weaponize excess fusion plasma, this system of special heat sinks and particle exciters allow the ship to vent dangerous plasma fire, causing plasma damage to nearby enemy ships. When installed, this system is present on all sections of separated Multi-Vector Assault Mode escorts, allowing all sections to coordinate the use of these dangerous plasma expulsers. In addition, this console provides a passive bonus to plasma and tetryon damage resistance rating as well as a boost to Weapon Power.
This starship can unlock the Numerical Superiority starship trait by achieving level 5 in their Starship Mastery. While this trait is slotted, you gain a damage bonus that increases as more allies target your targeted foe, including yourself. This includes pets like Saucer Separation or Multi-Vector pets, but not hangar pets.
The Hestia Class Advanced Escort can use all costume parts from any existing Advanced Escort or Multi-Vector Advanced Escort regardless if you own the Multi-Vector Advanced Escort or not.
