History and specificationsEdit
In the year 2409, the Starfleet Corps of Engineers (SCE) had been working on a special new destroyer class starship, designed for high-level combat situations. The project was so secret that access to the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards was restricted for months while the project was completed.
The Chimera-class heavy destroyer was similar to an escort, but had many qualities of light cruisers and science vessels. While in its innate regenerative mode, excess power was transferred to the auxiliary systems and deflector shields. It was equipped with a prototype Dynamic Tactical System (or DTS). This system allowed the Chimera to transform between regenerative mode and tactical mode. In regenerative mode, the tachyon inversion beam was enabled, which could siphon shields from multiple targets. Activating tactical mode transfered additional power to weapons. In tactical mode, the DTS enabled a powerful multi-targeting Lotus, which was capable of piercing multiple targets. However, while in tactical mode, the deflector shields and auxiliary power systems were weakened and the tachyon inversion beam was disabled.
