Andorian Light Escort
The Andorian Light Escort is a Lieutenant (Tier 1) level Federation Escort vessel. The ship was available as part of the Hero of the North Founder’s Pack for Neverwinter, and made available to PS4 players during the four week launch period of Star Trek Online's console debut. At the moment, there is no other way to obtain this ship.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Andorian Kumari Escort line is named in honor of the first Andorian Battle Cruiser, the Kumari, captained by Commander Thy'lek Shran in the 2150s. The Andorian Light Escort is a lightweight vessel that uses a similar design to Shran's Kumari, but comes equipped with the latest developments in Federation technology. The Kumari line's integrated Wing Cannons are among the most powerful weaponry ever seen in the Alpha Quadrant, designed to deliver powerful bursts of Phaser energy too quickly for an enemy vessel to recover.
The Andorian Light Escort comes with an additional fore weapon slot compared to other ships of its size. This weapon slot is equipped with [Light Kumari Phaser Wing Cannons], powerful weapons that scale with the user’s level. This ship unlocks for all Federation characters on an account.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
||The Kumari-class design is sharp and tapered, with a forward hull resembling a flattened bullet. Its wings extend out to the sides of the rear hull and have a slight fold. Its distinctive Wing Cannons are mounted a few meters inward towards the main hull maintain a tapered shape, accented by a pair of protrusions enclosing the cannons. Small fins protrude from the dorsal and ventral hull to give a sharper appearance.|
|| The Charal-class has a distinctively bulkier and more armored appearance than its peers. The dorsal and ventral blisters have a distinct appearance, its hull is also by default a slightly more purple-red shade. The forward hull is more blunted, and the Wing Cannons are placed at the tips of the wings rather than several meters inward. The cannons themselves are also thicker and have more a pronounced "recoil" animation when firing.
