General[edit | edit source]
The Wormhole Drive DS-1 is advanced ship operations technology that can be equipped on any ship with an operations slot, including but not limited to: Javelin Flagship, Prophet Flagship and Harvester. It is well-suited for exploration in Deep Space.
It grants the jump ship functionality to warp anywhere within 3 sectors.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Wormhole Drive DS-1 can be equipped on any jump ship, in particular non-Prophet Flagships, which unprecedentedly allows them to also travel across sectors in a single jump. Compared to the Wormhole Drive Type-E and Wormhole Blitz Drive, it also offers these ships a much lower repair time of 3 hours instead of 10 hours, and a max level build time of only 5 hours compared to 5 days.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
For non-Prophet Flagships, the Wormhole Drive DS-1 has a minimum escort level of 70, meaning that escorts of level 70 are unable to escort a fleet equipped with this jump drive. Morever, this jump drive has a longer charge time than both Wormhole Drive Type-E and Wormhole Blitz Drive when jumping in the same sector. It has a significantly lower escort limit than Wormhole Drive Type-E, and does not provide any jump bonus unlike the Wormhole Blitz Drive.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Wormhole Drive DS-1 is the first jump drive that is not locked to any hull.
- The "DS" in its name stands for Deep Space.
