The SoCT’s Metamorphosis-class exploration frigate shares the same basic hull profile as the stripped down Apotheosis-class shuttle. The Metamorphosis is a far more capable vessel, fully able to operate as scouting and surveying vessel in the depths of unknown space. While the vessel has some combat capability for defensive purposes in potentially dangerous territory, it is more suited to its intended exploration, hacking, and archaeological surveying purpose.

In typical SoCT fashion, the Metamorphosis has a balanced module fitting layout and is capable of using a wide variety of weapons and equipment for its class. While by no means as potent as the Gnosis- and Praxis-class vessels, this handy little frigate is a remarkable transformation of the hull it is based on into an agile and swift option for explorers.

Summary

The Metamorphosis is the Society of Conscious Thought frigate introduced as a login award for Capsuleer Day XX. This ship has a bounty of bonuses, such as 100% bonuses to Small Energy Turret, Small Hybrid Turret, Small Projectile Turret, Light Missile, and Rocket damage. Additionally, it offers a 50% bonus to Drone hit points, a +2 bonus to ship warp core strength, a 100% reduction in Cloaking Device, Probe Launcher, Relic Analyzer, and Data Analyzer CPU requirements, and a 37.5% reduction in Core Scanner Probe scan deviation. It also has all the role bonuses of an Astero, namely a 37.5% bonus to Core and Combat Scanner Probe strength, as well as a +10 bonus to Relic and Data Analyzer virus strength. Notably, the ship features a Mobile Depot Bay capable of carrying any of the three types of Mobile Depots. The Metamorphosis and the Astero are the only Tech 1 frigate hulls that can fit a Covert Ops cloak and warp while cloaked.

The Metamorphosis is primarily designed as a stealthy exploration ship, with a specific focus on extended operations away from stations. It can be easily outfitted for either exploration or PvP purposes at any time by deploying a Mobile Depot from the Mobile Depot bay. With the hard points for a turret and a launcher, drone hit point bonus, and a cloaking ability that empowers it to initiate fights at its choosing, this hull is particularly effective for engaging other explorers outside of high-security space. However, it comes at a significantly higher cost than a Tech 1 exploration frigate, and even surpasses the price of a Tech 2 Covert Ops frigate. Nevertheless, all the ship’s bonuses are role-based, and any pilot with Spaceship Command I can fly the ship, making it a suitable alternative to the Astero without the same expenses or skill requirements.

Thanks to its 100% reduction in CPU requirements for Probe Launchers, the Metamorphosis has the necessary fitting capacity to serve as a cloaking, probing scout for PvP. It doesn't necessitate fitting compromises to accommodate the expanded probe launcher required for using combat probes, unlike the Astero.

Skills

  • The only skill required to fly the Metamorphosis is Spaceship Command I.
  • To be successful flying the ship, especially for exploration, there are some skills that really should be trained sufficiently.
  • It is essential to train Cloaking to IV in order to use the Covert Ops Cloaking Device II.
  • Astrometrics IV, Astrometric Acquisition III, Astrometric Pinpointing III and Astrometric Rangefinding III make a good skills base for scanning.
  • If you intend to develop long term scouting skills, which will require fast accurate scans in a ship that's so nimble it warps almost instantly, it will become essential to train the Covops and Astrometric scanning skills to V.

Tactics

Notes

While the ship has a mobile depot bay, returning the mobile depot requires scooping the mobile depot into the cargo bay first before dragging it to the mobile depot bay. If the ship lacks the required cargo space, the pilot will need to jettison (jet can) enough cargo to make space for the mobile depot, scoop the depot, move it to the mobile depot bay, and then recover the cargo from the jet can.
