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 Zen small icon.png, or separately for 500Zen small icon.png.

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.

In a nod to the technology of the 22nd Century the SCE has added a [Console - Universal - Grappler], which is less efficient than a tractor beam but can hold an enemy for a short time.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
NX Class Light Escort (NX).png
NX-class
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 NX class skin is unlocked with the purchase of the NX Class Light Escort for 500 Zen small icon.png, or 1315 Zen small icon.png as part of the Enterprise Era Pack in the C-Store.

NX Refit.png
NX-class refit
The 23rd century refit of the legendary NX-class of the 22nd century, this escort vessel is both tough and nimble in battle.


The NX-class refit skin is unlocked with the purchase of the NX Escort Refit (T6) for 900 Lobi Crystal icon.png.

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.
