|Federation Constitution II-A||Fast||Powerful||Low||Advanced|
The Constitution, often referred to as the “iia” or “con”, is one of the most powerful ships in the game. It is fast, it has excellent scan and weapons ranges, and it is heavily armed. In the hands of a skilled player, the II-A can be downright terrifying. However, there is a drawback: Once it has been damaged, it becomes highly vulnerable to attack. This ship is normally only recommended for advanced players.
If you’re piloting the II-A, ***DO NOT GET HIT***. Once you begin to take damage, your speed will be sharply limited and you will very quickly die. Use your long scan range to survey an area before you fight. Pick your targets wisely and avoid confronting multiple ships at the same time. Your long torpedo range will allow you to damage enemies from a safe distance, and you can cloak to deliver powerful mine attacks. Be cautious when firing phasers, because you’re not only exposing yourself to return phaser fire; you’re also reducing your available Power significantly. It will take several moments to recharge that energy, and the resulting loss of speed can get you killed.
When battling against a II-A, your goal should be to damage it quickly or to escape at all costs. Aggression may be required on your part, but keep in mind that some of the more defensive strategies can also get you out of trouble. Use unpredictable combinations of altering course, overwarping, and cloaking near the edges of the II-A’s torpedo range. If you have a cloaking device, consider letting the II-A hit your shields a couple of times with torpedoes; You can then cloak and use evasive maneuvers while your shields recharge. If you can waste the II-A’s torpedoes, you will most likely survive its attack. If you can deal even moderate damage to the II-A, you can probably kill it.
