|— In-Game Description|
|!THIS CAN ONLY BE EQUIPPED ON THE JAVELIN FLAGSHIP!|
|Wormhole Drive Type-O||I|
|Minimum Range||1 AU|
The Wormhole Drive Type-O is a flagship utility that is pre-built onto a Javelin Flagship when directly obtained through an event. Only the MK I variant was ever released, and it first appeared in the event Zero Hour.
It has the functionality to warp inside a sector, from any location to any destination, carrying along a maximum of four escorts no matter the level.
All players automatically have access to the Type-O Drive by default.
Strategy and Setup
The Wormhole Drive Type-O is the most abundant and quickest-to-use drive as it is pre-installed into one's (non-crafted) Javelin Flagship and is available to all players.
Just like other drives, it is an immense tool in farming, enabling the player to get to supply run or cargo fleets faster than normal. In PvP, it also serves as a carrier of fleets which can quickly get into battle, to retreat or jump past blockades.
However, just like other drives, it has an extremely long repair making it devastating to have destroyed as you will have at least 12 hours of repair.
It is easily outclassed by the better Type-E and Blitz Drive which are faster and/or give buffs which this drive does not give.
It also requires an alliance and a captain's permit to use. This will often make these hulls useless if you have no alliance or are in bigger ones which can't support that many permits making it hard to manage with on bigger players.
- Type-O could mean type original, denoting the first of its kind as a wormhole drive.
- Some consider this drive to be a beta version and for the wormhole drive type-E to be its successor.
- The Type-O Drive would be useful if you haven't gotten yourself a Type-E or a Blitz Drive.
