The Federation Cruiser is a Lieutenant Commander (Tier 2) level Cruiser, and is acquired as a free ship from Admiral Quinn upon reaching the rank of Lieutenant Commander. This vessel is the first Cruiser possible through normal player progression, and introduces cruiser-style gameplay strategies to new Federation players.
The Cruiser utilizes the standard "saucer, engineering hull, and nacelle" configuration utilized in the design of most Starfleet vessels. Its most iconic variant, the Constitution-class refit, is often used by players familiar with the Star Trek universe.
Obtaining[edit | edit source]
The Cruiser is the first cruiser, and is available for all players when they become a Lieutenant Commander. It can also be obtained at the Dilithium Store after dismissal.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Essential upgrades were made to the Constitution-class' critical systems, some of which would be reflected on in Starfleet designs in the 25th century. The Constitution Refit costume is unlocked for free.|
||Starfleet as a vessel used to resupply planets, space stations, and other starships. The power systems make it possible to run industrial replicators indefinitely, making this class the ideal choice for evacuation and mercy missions.

||The Vesper class is reminiscent of the Excelsior class line of ships. However the general layout reflects that of the more traditional Cruiser. The saucer, unlike that of the Excalibur, is completely round.
