STO fed escort.jpg

The Federation Escorts (comprised of the Saber, Rapier and Ushaan classes) are small, heavily-armed starships designed to accompany and protect larger or more lightly-armed vessels.


Players will be able to choose an Escort once they achieve the rank of Lieutenant Commander 1. The Saber, Rapier and Ushaan classes, with their small crew complements, are not able to repair damage as quickly as the larger and stronger Cruisers and Science Vessels of Tier 2, so instead they rely upon their excellent manoeuvrability, speed and sheer firepower to overwhelm opponents. A tactic often used here is the hit and run tactic. All types of escorts have the ability to load heavy cannons, some of the most devastating energy weapons available, though limited to a 45-degree firing arc. Due to the limited firing arcs Escorts typically use, it is recommended that players install a wide-arc beam weapon array or 360-degree cannon turret in their rear weapons slot.
