The latest Star Trek Online ship to be revealed is the Starfleet Type VII Commercial Laboratory. See what this research ship looks like and read a small portion of its description below:
The Type VII is most often used for scientific purposes, rather than transport or defense. It is equipped with limited weaponry, and upgrading the offensive capabilities of a Type VII ship come at the cost of limiting power for sensors and laboratories. However, that has not stopped some captains from adding additional weapons. Captains are warned not to assume that a Type VII will be ill-equipped for battle.
