Combined knowledge of NOVA, search and you shall find.

Combat roles

The universe is wide and full of mysteries. We all need to be prepared for any threat that can be thrown at us. From a Vanduul attack to pirates coming to steal our supplies we worked hard for. We will be ready too.

To make this possible every member of NOVA are required to choose a combat role upon joining. In case of emergency NOVA will require you to fulfill your duty and protect what is ours. There is a combat role that will suit everyone.


  • Fighter pilot (ex.: pilot of Arrow, Hornet, Superhornet, etc)
  • Combat ship pilot* (combat multi crew ships ex.: Hammerhead, Retaliator, etc)
  • Marines (FPS combat, this also includes ground vehicles)
  • Gunner (ex.: gunner in Hammerhead, Retaliator, etc)
  • Support ship pilot* (ex.: pilot of Vulcan, Apollo, Valkyrie, Starfarer, etc)
  • Support (ex.: Engineer, Drone operator, scanning operator, etc)
  • Medic (ex.: Doctor in Apollo or endeavor. Medic in squad, etc)

*If you choose to be a pilot. You need to have the right NOVA Pilot License for it.


Due to current gameplay possibilities in game, combat role for commanders are currently not tied to a branch. However once more gameplay will be added you will need to choose a combat role from your branch. Ex.: Nova Relief commander will need to take Medical Commander as combat role.

  • Wing commander (Squadron leader)
  • Squad leader (FPS marines squad leader, also includes ground vehicles leader)
  • Captain combat ship (ex.: Hammerhead captain, Retaliator captain, etc)
  • Captain Support ship (ex.: Starfarer, Crucible, etc)
  • Medical Leader (ex.: Apollo, Endeavor Hope, etc)

We highly recommend you to to choose a combat role who has gameplay already implemented in the game. You can always change your combat role later on.
