Tactical Escort (T6)
40,000 (Level 60)
The Tactical Escort (T6), or Valiant-class Tactical Escort, is a Tier 6 (Vice Admiral) Federation Escort. Players can purchase this ship from the C-Store for 3,000 , or as part of the cross-faction bundle for 6,000 .
Overview[edit | edit source]
The Tier 6 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.
Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]
||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.

||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.

||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.

||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.|

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

It can also equip the [Cloaking Device] console from the Tactical Escort Retrofit (Tier 5, C-Store, 2000 ) or the Dreadnought Cruiser (Tier 5, C-Store, 2500 ). These consoles, and the Phaser Quad Cannons, form the Stealth Fighter Set.

- Valiant-class is most likely named in honor of the U.S.S. Valiant, a Defiant-class starship destroyed in a battle against the Jem'Hadar in 2374.
