The Ushaan class Escort was introduced into Starfleet in the late 24th century, and has many basic design similarities to her sister ship, the Rapier classes. Continuing the weapons-themed name of the Saber and her sister ships, the Ushaan was named for the Andorian honor ritual of Ushaan, and its signature weapon, the Ushaan-tor.
The Rapier (and her sister ships, the Saber and Rapier) are the Escort class ships of the second tier of starship for available for command in Star Trek Online.
The Ushaan and her sister ships become available once the player attains the rank of Lieutenant Commander 1. Like most Escort class ships, the Saber, Rapier and Ushaan are relatively fragile compared to Science Vessels and Cruisers, but compensate by having more forward firepower than either of those classes, and the unique ability to be loaded with heavy cannons. In addition, these ships are fast and highly maneuverable which allows them to strike quickly, agressively, and efficiently at their targets.
