Frigates (also known as Corvettes or Light Cruisers) are small, maneuverable vessels used by almost every faction. They are generally the weakest NPC vessels in the game (aside from fighters), and as such they typically appear in groups of three.

Frigates generally carry three or four weapons and only a couple of abilities.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The term "frigate" dates back to the 17th century, where it was used to refer to ships smaller and faster than ships-of-the-line. Frigates were generally used as patrols and escorts, and their role in Star Trek Online generally reflects this well.
