The Hermes-class Patrol Escort is a Tier 5 (Level 40) Escort which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters.

Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 80,000 Refined dilithium icon.png.  

This ship can also be obtained by Federation players for free upon reaching level 40 by using their free SRFED5.png Starship Requisition token.

Overview[edit | edit source]

A small vessel, the Patrol Escort's weaponry, speed and maneuverability and decent Engineering capabilities give it a good balance of offense and defense.

Class variants

Class Information
Ship Variant - FED - Hermes Patrol Escort (T5).jpg
Hermes class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Hermes class is the shortest variant. The saucer has a more carved out front end with a smaller deflector nose. Its side pylons are forward sweeping with a lower angular center pylon. Its nacelles are the shortest of the four variants, with smaller Bussard ports and a dark red Particle Aperture strip at the center front. Its Reaction Control Thruster ports are much larger as well.

This is the default starship class of the prime universe Patrol Escort.

Ship Variant - FED - Dervish Patrol Escort (T5).jpg
Dervish class
Dervish patch.png
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Dervish Class has a more traditional saucer section with the largest deflector nose of all the variants. It has four Reaction Control Thrusters and protruding Impulse Thrusters at the back of the saucer. The large nacelles feature wide-angle Bussard collectors at the front. Its center pylon is the largest with side pylons that sweep backward.

This is the default starship class of the mirror universe Advanced Escort.

Ship Variant - FED - Gryphon Patrol Escort (T5).jpg
Gryphon class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Gryphon class has an elongated saucer section with a deflector nose that has a Klingon style fin underneath. Below the saucer are rib like sections that lead to the impulse thrusters. Uniquely, it has deflectors similar to the Defiant class on both sides of the saucer, as well as having only two Reaction Control Thrusters. The nacelles are much longer with bigger recessed Bussard collector ports and arched side pylons. Its center pylon is wing shaped with carved triangular shapes in the front.
Ship Variant - FED - Tempest Patrol Escort Refit (T5).jpg
Tempest class
SKIN UNLOCK: Tempest Patrol Escort Refit, 2500 Zen small icon.png
The Tempest class features a stark white hull material with black accents, bearing similarities to other Refit vessels, including the Regent and Sao Paulo classes. The Tempest class is similar in profile to the Dervish class, with a round saucer section. The central deflector hull is less pronounced, and the main deflector is set deep into the area where the central hull merges with the saucer.
Ship Variant - FED - Fleet Maelstrom Patrol Escort Refit (T5).jpg
Maelstrom class
SKIN UNLOCK: Fleet Maelstrom Patrol Escort Refit, 20,000 Fleet Credits, 4 Fleet Ship Module icon.png
The Maelstrom class primarily features sharper angles, flatter surfaces, and a more "armored" look. Its saucer is the widest of all the Patrol Escorts, and gives the impression of a Bird-of-Prey with forward-swept "wings". Its nacelles are flat and straight, with the Bussard Collectors located on the underside. Its nose-mounted deflector is also smaller and square-shaped.

This class was previously available as an extra ship skin in the Zen Store, but as of Season 7 is exclusive to the Fleet Patrol Escorts. Players who purchased the skin prior to the Season 7 update may still use the Maelstrom skin on any Patrol Escorts they own.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Experimental Weapon[edit source]

The Hermes Patrol Escort comes with an Experimental Weapon slot. This additional slot does not fit standard weapons. Unlike standard starship weapons, Experimental weapons are not affected by weapon firing modes, such as those granted by bridge officer abilities.

Standard configuration[edit | edit source]

Federation starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Dervish class was named by fans through a competition on the Star Trek Online official website.
  • The Dervish class name was the subject of some controversy from portions of the Star Trek Online community who felt that the term's religious connotations were inappropriate to the Star Trek setting. This controversy did not extend to the Hephaestus, Oracle or Prometheus in-game classes.
  • Prior to the introduction of Fleet starships, this starship was known as the "Fleet Escort."
