The Sao Paulo-class Tactical Escort Refit is a Tier 4 (Level 30) Escort which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters.

Players can obtain this starship from the Zen Store for 1,500 Zen small icon.png. This ship can be purchased individually, or as part of the console-only Federation Pack for 4,000 Zen small icon.png. It is also available as part of the console-only All Faction Mega Bundle for 8,000 Zen small icon.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The original Defiant, commanded by Captain Benjamin Sisko, was on the front lines during the Dominion War. When it was lost to the Breen at the Second Battle of Chin'toka, Starfleet assigned the U.S.S. Sao Paulo to Deep Space Nine, but gave Sisko and his crew permission to rename the ship to Defiant. Almost 35 years later Starfleet has launched the Tactical Escort Refit: Sao Paulo class in honor of that ship.

Class variants

Class Information
Federation Tactical Escort (Defiant).png
Defiant class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Defiant class was the first of the Tactical Escort designs, with a prototype originally designed to fight the Borg. The project ultimately failed at Utopia Planetia because its initial engine designs tore the ship apart, though then Engineer Miles Edward O'Brien took the project under his wing and corrected most of its issues. The class design later entered production due to the Dominion threat.
Federation Tactical Escort (Gallant).png
Gallant class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
Launched in response to the fallout from the Khitomer Accords in 2399, the Gallant class was born. These ships were made to fight on the front lines of Borg conflict. Gallant is a variant of Defiant, just as capable and bares just as many teeth.
Federation Tactical Escort (Vigilant).png
Vigilant class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Vigilant was a design inspired by the Defiant class. It is just as powerful and nimble but is larger and features an updated nacelle design. The Vigilant is also equipped with a multipurpose space that is adaptable to any situation including relaxation or training.
Federation Tactical Escort (Sao Paulo).png
Sao Paulo class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free with this starship
The Sao Paulo class is a 25th century refit of the famed Defiant class. It has exposed, forward-swept warp nacelles and a more faceted main deflector. It also has the white hull texture common to refit vessels.

Valiant class
SKIN UNLOCK: Valiant Tactical Escort, 3000 Zen small icon.png
The Valiant-class Tactical Escort is based upon the highly successful Defiant-class design. Unlike the Defiant, which was designed specifically to combat the Borg, the Valiant class was built with the Federation's new enemies in mind.

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.

Special equipment[edit | edit source]

The Sao Paulo comes with [Phaser Quad Cannons [Dmg]x3]. These Quad Cannons can be equipped by any starship capable of equipping Dual Cannons, and have a base damage 3% higher than Dual Cannons (before [Dmg] modifiers), as well as an innate 15% boost to their own damage. This fearsome energy weapon draws power from the ship's engines to deal massive damage to an enemy. The Quad Phaser Cannons scale in effectiveness with you up to Mk XII, and then may be upgraded. They may also be re-engineered.
