The Blockade Runner Escort is a Lieutenant level (Tier 1) Federation Escort. It was originally obtainable from Steam as part of the Steam Starter Pack, and was made available to Xbox One players during the four week launch period of Star Trek Online's console debut. It is now available in the Cryptic Store for 2500 Zen small icon.png. The Vice Admiral level (Tier 5) Blockade Runner Escort Retrofit is also included.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Steamrunner class has been around since the late 24th century, but due to it's reliability and effectiveness, it is still in limited use today. The Steamrunner class saw significant action in the Battle of Sector 001 against The Borg, as well as countless battles and sorties during the Dominion War. Simply put, the Steamrunner is fast, agile, and tough.

The Blockade Runner Escort comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Resonance Cascade Modulator], which can enhance a team's shields for a limited time by eliminating bleedthrough from normal attacks, and decreasing overall damage sustained by the team's shields.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Steamrunner Class[edit | edit source]

Steamrunner Class
The Steamrunner-class starship's design serves as the basis for the 25th-century Zephyr-class Heavy Escort, and pioneered many of the Zephyr's signature design features. These include unusual catamaran nacelles that are mounted directly onto the saucer section and a trailing secondary hull, suspended between the nacelles. Thus the Steamrunner's nacelles effectively double up as the pylons connecting the saucer and secondary hull.

Unlike the Zephyr-class, though, the Steamrunner's deflector is not mounted on the saucer but on the trailing secondary hull, akin to the mission/weapons pod on an Akira-class ship. Like the NX-class escort, the secondary hull hangs below the saucer, with the connecting struts angling down. The saucer itself resembles an upside-down spade blade, sloping downward from the nacelles.
