The Federation Escort is a Lieutenant Commander (Tier 2) level Escort. It is the first set in the Escort category of starships that players in Star Trek Online are available to purchase if playing on the Federation faction. These ships are available from the Lieutenant Commander rank. Escorts are focused around forward firepower and are one of the several Federation ship types that can equip Dual Cannons, along with Destroyer, Battle Cruiser, and Multi-Mission Explorer. Escort vessels suffer from weaker shields and hulls compared to Science and Cruiser vessels of the same tier.
