Class variants

Class Information
 
Akira class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free

The Akira class continues the design philosophy of the 22nd century NX class, albeit with its nacelles swung downward instead of upward. It retains the long, thin deflector at the front of its primary hull, the small secondary hull connected to the warp nacelles by pylons, and the long, thick stanchions connecting the primary hull to those pylons.

In lieu of the long, thin deflector of the NX class, it has a forward hangar bay, and a standard deflector attached underneath the primary hull. It also has standard shuttle bays in the aft section where the NX class has its EVA staging area, instead of a vertical shuttle pod launching bay.

 
Oslo class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Oslo-class Heavy Escort is an upgraded and modified version of the earlier Norway-class ship. It has an elongated primary hull and lacks a secondary hull, instead having weapon hardpoints attached to the nacelle pylons directly. It shares the same nacelle design as the Nova-class Science Vessel.
 
Zephyr class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Zephyr-class Heavy Escort is an upgraded and modified version of the earlier Steamrunner-class ship.
 
Thunderchild class
SKIN UNLOCK: Thunderchild Heavy Escort Refit, 75,000  
The Thunderchild-class Heavy Escort is a tribute to the U.S.S. Thunderchild (NCC-63549) which engaged the Borg in Sector 001.
 
Armitage class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free with this starship

The Armitage class features low-slung, forward-swept pylons and long, tapered nacelles. Its saucer is built around a thick central spine that contains the deflector and elevates the bridge above the split hull. A battery of cannon apertures is concentrated in the nose, above and to the sides of the deflector dish. Torpedo and turret fire comes from the top-mounted launcher in the rear pylon.

If made to use components from standard Heavy Escorts such as the Akira or Thunderchild, its size will shrink to match.

 
Alita class
SKIN UNLOCK: Alita Heavy Strike Wing Escort, 3,000  
The Alita-class Heavy Strike Wing Escort is based upon the highly successful Armitage-class design. This new heavy escort has been built from the ground up to most efficiently combat the Iconian threat.

AbilitiesEdit

Universal consolesEdit

This ship includes the [Console - Universal - Torpedo Point Defense System], which is part of the Heavy Escort Modifications Set. The Armitage may also equip the other items from that set.

Hangar bayEdit

The Heavy Strike Wing Escort comes with built-in abilities that cannot be ranked up, and abilities that are based on the craft loaded into the hangar bay.

This ship can launch attack wings of Peregrine Fighters in its standard configuration, though other small crafts can be equipped to be launched. The carrier can also give commands to those craft to order them to attack or defend selected targets.

Carrier commandsEdit

Experimental WeaponEdit

The Armitage-class Heavy Strike Wing Escort comes with an Experimental Weapon slot. This additional slot does not fit standard weapons. Unlike standard starship weapons, Experimental weapons are not affected by weapon firing modes, such as those granted by bridge officer abilities.

Standard configurationEdit

Federation starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.

T5-X upgrade

By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Armitage-class Heavy Strike Wing Escort may be upgraded to T5-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait. Note that upgrading the Fleet Akira Heavy Strike Wing Escort (T5), the fleet version of the Armitage Heavy Strike Wing Escort, will not apply the upgrade to this starship.
