The Tactical Escort is a Captain (Tier 4) level Federation Escort vessel. This particular type of ship class was a rescued project from the Utopia Planitia Ship Yards by Captain Benjamin Sisko. It was designed to be a new type of warship created to fight the Borg but later revived to fight the Dominion War.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Fleet Tactical Escort T6 Defiant.jpg
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.

Default Gallant Class.jpg
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.

Default Vigilant Class.jpg
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.
