The Federation Tactical Escorts (comprised of the Defiant, Vigilant and Gallant classes) are heavily-armed vessels designed to defended less maneuverable or lightly-armed ships.

Gameplay

Players will be able to choose a Tactical Escort once they achieve the rank of Captain 1. Like most escort ships, the Defiant, Vigilant, and Gallant are highly maneuverable ships with small crew complements, compared to Heavy Cruisers and Long Range Vessels. Compared to the Science vessels and especially the Cruisers, the Tactical Escort has a relatively weak hull and less advanced shielding. However, using it's speed and maneuverability, she's able to punch through enemy ships and at least put up a good fight. 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.
