Overview[edit | edit source]

Starfleet upgraded this vessel with latest standard equipment and systems available in the early 25th century.

Class variants

Class Information
Federation Tactical Escort (Defiant).png
Defiant class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Defiant class was the first of the Tactical Escort designs, with a prototype originally designed to fight the Borg. The project ultimately failed at Utopia Planetia because its initial engine designs tore the ship apart, though then Engineer Miles Edward O'Brien took the project under his wing and corrected most of its issues. The class design later entered production due to the Dominion threat.
Federation Tactical Escort (Gallant).png
Gallant class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
Launched in response to the fallout from the Khitomer Accords in 2399, the Gallant class was born. These ships were made to fight on the front lines of Borg conflict. Gallant is a variant of Defiant, just as capable and bares just as many teeth.
Federation Tactical Escort (Vigilant).png
Vigilant class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Vigilant was a design inspired by the Defiant class. It is just as powerful and nimble but is larger and features an updated nacelle design. The Vigilant is also equipped with a multipurpose space that is adaptable to any situation including relaxation or training.
Federation Tactical Escort (Sao Paulo).png
Sao Paulo class
SKIN UNLOCK: Sao Paulo Tactical Escort Refit, 1500 Zen small icon.png
The Sao Paulo class is a 25th century refit of the famed Defiant class. It has exposed, forward-swept warp nacelles and a more faceted main deflector. It also has the white hull texture common to refit vessels.
Federation Tactical Escort (Valiant).png
Valiant class
SKIN UNLOCK: Valiant Tactical Escort, 3000 Zen small icon.png
The Valiant-class Tactical Escort is based upon the highly successful Defiant-class design. Unlike the Defiant, which was designed specifically to combat the Borg, the Valiant class was built with the Federation's new enemies in mind.
