- This article is about the playable ship. For the NPC vessel see Federation Frigate.
The Federation Light Cruiser is a Lieutenant (Tier 1) level cruiser and the first starship that players of the Federation faction have access to. New players are given command of a Light Cruiser on completion of the tutorial. Players can obtain the vessel again, if dismissed, through the Shipyard for 5,000 .
Variants[edit | edit source]
Miranda class[edit | edit source]Miranda class starship has been in service since at least 2285. The version available in Star Trek Online is of the Reliant subtype (with a "rollbar" atop the saucer housing the photon torpedo launcher and main deflector). There are other Miranda variants in Star Trek canon, such as the Lantree configuration (lacking the rollbar) and the Saratoga configuration (also without the rollbar, but with additional sensor pods on the sides of the hull). Neither of them can currently be created through ship customization.
Centaur class[edit | edit source]Centaur class is based on the Excelsior class, built in the 2370s from salvaged components in response to the Dominion threat. It has a main saucer section with two aft nacelles at the end of its down-swept pylons. Out of the three sub-types for the Light Cruiser, it is arguably the one that mostly resembles a Cruiser style ship.
