The Heavy Escort is a Commander (Tier 3) level Federation Escort vessel. This type of ship was made popular by the Akira class starship which appeared in both Star Trek: Deep Space 9 and Star Trek: Voyager.

The Heavy Escort is the second tier of Tactical Escorts in the game. This type of escort loses a point in maneuverability but gains hull strength to make up for it. The ship also gains an aft weapon slot allowing for rear torpedo attacks. As a result, the ship is very deadly to enemies during that phase of the game when equipped appropriately.


Akira Class:The Akira class is the most popular of the three Heavy Escort classes. The design of the NX-01 Enterprise in the TV series Star Trek: Enterprise was partly inspired by this class. Ships of the class include the U.S.S. Kelvin and U.S.S. Thunderchild (NCC-63549).

Oslo Class:The Oslo class Heavy Escort is an upgraded and modified version of the earlier Norway class ship. It shares the same nacelle design as the Nova Class Science Vessel.

Zephyr Class:The Zephyr class Heavy Escort is an upgraded and modified version of the earlier Steamrunner class ship.
