Overview[edit | edit source]

The Tier 6 Hestia-class Advanced Escort is a heavily modified version of the Multi-Vector Advanced Escort. It has been refitted to take advantage of the Multi-Vector capabilities of its predecessor. The Hestia Class Advanced Escort is the pinnacle of tactical starship design.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Federation Advanced Escort (Prometheus).png
Prometheus-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Prometheus class is one of the most versatile ships ever designed by Starfleet. Intended for combat, the original prototype USS Prometheus employed a multi-vector assault mode; the ship divides into three semi-autonomous sections capable of fighting independently from each other. Each section is also capable of achieving warp speed. According to the Star Trek Online ship description, the multi-vector aspect was removed due to moving parts that were easy to damage.
Federation Advanced Escort (Cerberus).png
Cerberus-class
SKIN UNLOCK: free
Unlike other Starfleet ships designed for exploration with defense as a secondary concern, the Cerberus is primarily a warship. While it resembles the experimental (and slightly larger) U.S.S. Prometheus, that doesn’t mean it’s not an impressive warship.
Federation Advanced Escort (Phoenix).png
Phoenix-class
SKIN UNLOCK: free
Phoenix Class resembles earlier Starfleet designs that opt for a more dome-like saucer section and a shorter base. The nacelles are also the shortest but significantly wider. Its very nimble and efficient design may allay initial fears as a warship but it's essentially a wolf in sheep's clothing that's just as capable as other Prometheus variants.
Federation Advanced Escort (Hephaestus).png
Hephaestus-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Fleet Advanced Escort (T6), 20,000 Fleet Credits, 5 Fleet Ship Module icon.png
The Hephaestus class is more angular than other Advanced Escort designs, dominated by straight lines and sharp edges. Its saucer has a sharp "nose" and small fins link the hull to the ventral surface. This class was previously available as an extra ship skin at the C-Store for 440 Zen small icon.png, but as of Season 7 is exclusive to the Fleet Advanced Escort. Players who purchased the skin prior to the Season 7 update may still use the Hephaestus skin on any Advanced Escorts or Multi-Vector Advanced Escorts they own.
