The Fleet Akira-class Heavy Strike Wing Escort (T6) is a Tier 6 Strike Wing Escort which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. All faction restrictions of this starship can be removed by having a level 65 KDF character or by purchasing the Cross Faction Flying unlock from the Zen Store. This starship can be used from any level upon completion of the tutorial experience. As you level up, this ship gains additional hull, weapon slots, and console slots.
Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 20,000 and 5 , so long as the player's Fleet has a Tier V Shipyard and one Starbase Military Fleet Ship Provision. If the player already owns the Alita Heavy Strike Wing Escort from the Zen Store, the Fleet Ship Module cost is reduced to 1.

The Fleet Heavy Strike Wing Escort [T6] 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. Tier 6 Fleet ships do not have a 5th Starship Mastery level and thus do not unlock a Starship Trait.

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.

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.

The Zephyr-class Heavy Escort is an upgraded and modified version of the earlier Steamrunner-class ship.
|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.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Armitage Heavy Strike Wing Escort, 2,500 |
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.
|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.

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.
This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.
Equipment slots and seating
As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, science console slots and available bridge officer (boff) abilities will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:
This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.173333 for the Fleet Akira-class Heavy Strike Wing Escort (T6)), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Fleet Akira-class Heavy Strike Wing Escort (T6) may be upgraded to T6-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait.
Note that upgrading the Alita Heavy Strike Wing Escort, the standard non-fleet version of the Fleet Akira Heavy Strike Wing Escort (T6), will not apply the upgrade to this starship.
