- This article is about the playable ship. For the NPC vessel see Federation Frigate.
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 .
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
||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.
|| 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.
|| 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 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.
|| 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.
|| 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 Soyuz-class variant parts are based on the ship commanded by Captain Morgan Bateson in the late 23rd century, the U.S.S. Bozeman.|
