The Federation Light Cruiser is a Lieutenant (Tier 1) level cruiser and one of the first starship that players of the Federation faction have access to. New players are given command of a Light Cruiser on completion of the standard tutorial. Players can obtain the vessel again, if dismissed, through the Shipyard for 5,000 Refined dilithium icon.png.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Default Miranda Class.jpg
Miranda-class
Miranda class starships have been in service since at least 2285, used well into the 24th Century during conflicts such as the Dominion War. The Miranda-class design included a roll bar equipped with torpedo launchers and phaser banks.

Miranda parts are available by default.
Miranda Class Beta.png
Miranda-class Beta
A refitted Miranda-class designed to more closely reflect its CGI appearance on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, including a greyer hull, lit nacelles and redesigned saucer with additional lights. The Miranda Beta pylon option also includes an in-built deflector dish, referencing the original STO model of the Miranda-class from the launch of the game.


Each piece is freely available and must be selected manually.

Default Centaur Class.jpg
Centaur-class
The Centaur class is based on the Excelsior class, known to be active in the 2370s during the Dominion threat. It has a main saucer section with two aft nacelles at the end of its down-swept pylons.

Centaur parts are available by default.
Saratoga Class.png
Saratoga-class
Saratoga-class variant parts are based on the ill-fated starship Benjamin Sisko served on during the Battle of Wolf 359.

Saratoga parts are available by default.
Default Shi'Kar Class.jpg
ShiKahr-class
The ShiKahr class is similar to the Miranda in appearance, though it sports a bulkier hull design. The class is most likely named after the Vulcan city ShiKahr.

ShiKahr parts are available by default.
Reliant Class.png
Reliant-class
The Reliant-class modernizes the utilitarian aspects of the Miranda design with a strong focus on mobility and utility, while improving the overall capabilities of this workhorse cruiser to match those of its fellow Tier 6 starships.


The Reliant class skin is unlocked with the purchase of the Advanced Light Cruiser (T6) for 3000 Zen small icon.png.

Soyuz Class.png
Soyuz-class
The Soyuz-class variant parts are based on the ship commanded by Captain Morgan Bateson in the late 23rd century, the U.S.S. Bozeman.


Soyuz parts are only available for use if the player owns the Fleet Advanced Light Cruiser (T6), and must be selected manually..
