The Fleet Patrol Escort is an Admiral (Tier 5) level Federation Escort. Players can obtain the vessel through the Shipyard for 20,000 Fleet Credits and 4 Fleet Ship Modules as long as the player’s Fleet has a Tier I shipyard.
Fleet Patrol Escorts have expanded Engineering facilities intended to support a battle group during difficult missions. The Fleet Patrol Escort has been specifically designed to support your Fleet. Fleet Starships are built to the highest standard and have increased Hull Hit Points, Shield Strength, and an additional Console slot.
Dervish Class:The Dervish Class has a more traditional saucer section with the largest deflector nose of all the variants. It has four Reaction Control Thrusters and protruding Impulse Thrusters at the back of the saucer. Its nacelles are the largest of the three with wide angle Bussard collectors at the front. Its center pylon is the largest with side pylons that sweep backward. (The Dervish Class was named by fans through a competition on the Star Trek Online official website.)
Gryphon Class:The Gryphon variant has an elongated saucer section with a deflector nose that has a Klingon style fin underneath. Below the saucer are rib like sections that lead to the impulse thrusters. Its the only variant that has smaller Defiant Class style deflectors on both sides of the saucer. Its also the only variant that has only two Reaction Control Thrusters. Its nacelles are much longer with bigger recessed Bussard collector ports and arched side pylons. Its center pylon is wing shaped with carved triangular shapes in the front.
Hermes Class:The Hermes class is the shortest of the three variants. Its saucer has carved front out front end which accents a smaller deflector nose. Its side pylons are forward sweeping with a lower angular center pylon. Its nacelles are the shortest with smaller Bussard ports and a dark red Particle Aperture strip at the center front. Its Reaction Control Thruster ports are much larger as well.
Maelstrom Class:The Maelstrom class primarily features sharper angles, flatter surfaces, and a generally more “armored” look. Its saucer is the widest of all the Patrol Escorts, and gives the impression of a Bird-of-Prey with forward-swept “wings”. Its nacelles are flat and straight, with the bussard collectors located on the underside. Its nose-mounted deflector is also smaller and square-shaped. This class was previously available as an extra ship skin at the C-Store, but as of Season 7 is exclusive to the Fleet Patrol Escort. Players who purchased the skin prior to the Season 7 update may still use the Maelstrom skin on any Patrol Escorts they own.
