Defiant Class Escort

The Defiant (and her sister ships, the Vigilant and Gallant) are Tactical Escorts in the fourth tier of escort starships available for command in Star Trek Online.


The Defiant and her sister ships become available once the player attains the rank of Captain. Like most escort ships, the Defiant is highly maneuverable with a small crew complements, compared to Heavy Cruisers and Long Range Vessels. While the hull is relatively weak, swift movement and forward-biased weaponry punch through enemy targets before they can return fire. These advantages are emphasized by the use of heavy cannons, relying on the escorts high maneuverability to bring targets into the relatively small firing arcs of these damaging weapons.
