Class Information
Tactical Escort T6 Valiant.jpg
Valiant-class
New costume variant, available exclusively through the C-Store purchase of the Tactical Escort (T6).
Class Information
Fleet Tactical Escort T6 Defiant.jpg
Defiant-class
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.

The Defiant class skin is unlocked for free.

Default Gallant Class.jpg
Gallant-class
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.

The Gallant class skin is unlocked for free.

Default Vigilant Class.jpg
Vigilant-class
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.

The Vigilant class skin is unlocked for free.

This vessel can equip the [Quantum Warhead Module] from the Tactical Escort (T6), which must be purchased separately from the C-Store; this console can be used on all Tactical Escort variants. The Fleet Tactical Escort (T6) can also equip the [Cloaking Device] console from the Tactical Escort Retrofit (Tier 5, C-Store, 2000 Zen small icon.png) or the Dreadnought Cruiser (Tier 5, C-Store, 2500 Zen small icon.png).

Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]


Scaling starship[edit source]

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment slots[edit source]

As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, and science console slots will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Level Console tac icon.png Console eng icon.png Console sci icon.png Fore weapons Aft weapons
0-9 3 1 1 2 2
10-19 3 2 2 3 2
20-29 4 2 2 3 3
30-39 4 3 3 4 3
40+ 5 3 3

Hull strength[edit source]

This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.1 for the Fleet Defiant Tactical Escort), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
