NX Class Light Escort
The NX Class Light Escort is a Lieutenant level (Tier 1) Federation Escort, and the first available escort for Starfleet captains. It is obtainable from the C-Store as part of the Enterprise Era Pack for 1315 , or separately for 500.
Overview[edit | edit source]
After Starfleet starships were converted to a modular design, a group from the Starfleet Corps of Engineers working at Utopia Planitia wondered if vessels from the Federation's past could be constructed in this manner. Working with Federation historian Geoffrey Pacelli, the SCE officers chose the famed NX Class for reconstruction. The NX Class Starship Replica sports the classic look of Earth's starships from the 22nd century, but has been updated with modern technology to meet current Starfleet specifications for Lieutenant-rank missions. It carries a crew of 85.
Variants[edit | edit source]
||First launched in 2151, the NX class was humanity's first warp-5 capable vessel. Its first and most famous ship, the Enterprise (NX-01), was instrumental in defending Earth from a Xindi invasion, cementing early relations with other races, encountering new races and civilizations, and played a key part in the founding of the United Federation of Planets.|
|| The 23rd century refit of the legendary NX-class of the 22nd century, this escort vessel is both tough and nimble in battle.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
This vessel comes with a built-in ability, a grappler that acts similarly to a tractor beam. The grappler comes in the form of a console that can be removed and equipped on any vessel.
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 ship tends to vibrate when traveling at warp speeds faster than warp 5. (The effect is noticeable when zooming out - it becomes very noticeable when reaching warp speeds faster than Warp 10.) Whether this is intentional or a bug is not known.
- With the release of the Legacy of Romulus expansion, the "U.S.S." prefix can be removed from the ship.
- In the Foundry's ship costume editor, the Tier 1 NX-class Light Escort's modular parts, which can now be interchanged with those of the Tier 6 NX-class Escort Refit (in game, provided the player has access to them), are labeled as "Utopia". However, it remains uncertain if this is intended or not to be the ship's actual class-name.
