Well, we knew this was going to happen – just how soon was the question. And it’s been renamed the Annorax Science Dreadnought. What’s even more interesting is that this ship can utilize the Tipler Cylinder and the Manheim Device from the Temporal Destroyer and time ships. Both consoles recently had performance fixes which makes them possibly viable. I was planning on using this on my Sci-toon who happens to have the other ships – now even more so 😉 The good news I need duty officers, and hopefully my RNG luck is strong 😉
From @LaughingTrendy’s post this morning:
Chance to win a Krenim Annorax Science Dreadnought!
We are running a promotion from 9AM PDT on August 13th to 10AM PDT on August 27th! for a limited time that will provide an additional bonus when opening a Delta Alliance Duty Officer Pack!
When you purchase a Delta Alliance Duty Officer Pack from the C-Store, a container will be put into your inventory. Upon opening it, it will contain either 10 Lobi Crystals or a Tier 6 Krenim Annorax Science Dreadnought, in addition to a Delta Alliance Duty Officer Pack!
This massive starship comes with Temporal Distortion universal console. This device allows the Krenim Science Dreadnought to create a local temporal distortion field that causes your starship to partially phase out of time. While in this state your starship gains significantly increased flight speed and turn rate. In addition, the distortion causes the starship to become immune to energy damage, but also deal less energy damage for the duration of the effect. When your starship returns to normal space you will create a temporal disturbance that will cause a moderate amount of Antiproton damage, hold enemies and reduce the rate at which their abilities recharge.
This console also provides a passive boost to Exotic Damage. This console may only be equipped on the Krenim Annorax Science Dreadnought.
Additionally, upon achieving level 5 in the Krenim Annorax Science Dreadnought’s Starship Mastery you will unlock the Time to Kill starship trait. While slotted, this trait will provide a boost to all damage each time you activate a science bridge officer ability. This buff stacks up to 3 times.
The Krenim Science Dreadnought has a built in Chroniton Lance. This devastating weapon is capable of dealing tremendous amounts of antiproton damage, holding affected targets and reducing the speed at which their abilities recharge.
No dreadnought would be complete without a hangar bay, and the Annorax is no exception. It comes with a single hangar bay equipped with a single Krenim Heavy Raider hangar pet.
This ship can equip either of the Consoles found on the Krenim and Zahl ships recently introduced by the Year of Hell Lock Box, and as an added bonus, the Krenim Annorax Science Dreadnought can also equip the Tipler Cylinder and the Manheim Device. These universal consoles are found on the Temporal Science Vessels and Temporal Destroyers from the Temporal Lockbox and Lobi Store.
NOTE: Newly purchased Delta Alliance Duty Officer packs will only offer the chance to win the Krenim Annorax Science Dreadnought during this promotional event. Once this event ends, the packs will revert back to their previous state and no longer offer the Annorax.
Here is some information about the Delta Alliance Duty Officer Pack:
With the Iconians waging war on all fronts, the Delta Alliance has been hard at work negotiating with the various races of the Delta Quadrant. These negotiations pay off in the form of the Delta Alliance Duty Officer Pack. The duty officer pack brings Delta Quadrant species encountered during the events of Delta Rising to the Duty Officer system, allowing captains to staff their ships with Benthan, Hierarchy, Kazon, Malon, Ocampan, and Talaxian duty officers. The new active-roster powers are listed in this Dev Blog (link to Delta Alliance Blog).
Each Delta Alliance Duty Officer Pack will include:
- 4 Common or Better Duty Officers
- 2 Uncommon or Better Duty Officers
- 1 Rare or Better Duty Officer
- A Bonus Item!
Bonus items available are:
- A Stack of Gamma Quadrant Commodities
- A Stack of Embassy, Dilithium Mine or Spire Provisions
- A set of 4 Fleet Modules
- 1 of 3 new Starship Trait packs:
- Starship Trait: Attack Pattern Delta Prime
- Starship Trait: Point Defense Protocols
- Starship Trait: Scramble Fighters
