The Fleet Phantom-class Intel Escort is a Tier 6 Escort which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. The 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 II Shipyard and one Starbase Military Fleet Ship Provision. If the player already owns the Phantom Intel Escort from the Zen Store, the Fleet Ship Module cost is reduced to 1.
The Phantom Escort was designed for stealth, speed and delivering withering volleys of weapons fire upon its intended target. The Phantom is equipped with a Cloaking Device and Active Sensor Arrays. The former allows the starship to cloak while not in combat, and the latter allows intel craft to gather information about their target to expose a vulnerability in their defenses.
The Fleet Phantom Intel 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.
|Able to conduct surprise ambushes and hit-and-run attacks upon enemy formations, the Phantom Escort's profile is designed to maximize its ability to stay hidden while it approaches hostile ships under cloak.
To this end, the ship's hull consists of a small, flattened saucer hull with two compact, low-profile warp nacelles. Its rounded silhouette is similar to that of the Tactical Escort, though without a distinctive deflector "head" portion, more reminiscent of the Gallant-class Tactical Escort variant.
The Phantom's main deflector dish is almost hidden, within a recessed niche along the dorsal surface of the main hull. The slightly raised bridge area is flanked by two armored secondary hull compartments which extend out slightly past the trailing edge of the saucer, then link up in a spoiler-like "tail" configuration, similar to the aft sections of the Blockade Runner Escort and Norway-class Heavy Escort.
The ship's basic hull material is black, with no visible windows, rendering the Phantom difficult to see against the background of space, if not for thin, blue running light strips. Translucent panels along the front edges the saucer shield instruments that coordinate data from the Phantom's active sensor probe once launched.

Active Sensor Arrays
As an Intelligence starship, the Fleet Phantom Intel Escort is capable of deploying an Intel sensor drone with the Gather Intelligence ability.
While the target is Vulnerable, one of three Expose Vulnerability abilities can be used. These powerful abilities find a critical weakness in the targeted foe and allow players to briefly exploit it.
- Expose Vulnerability: Critical Systems
- Expose Vulnerability: Defenses
- Expose Vulnerability: Weapon Systems
Intelligence vessels also have a built-in passive ability which renders them undetectable at long range.
The Fleet Phantom-class Intel Escort has a cloak that allows the ship to cloak when not in combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
The Fleet Phantom-class Intel 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.
The Fleet Phantom-class Intel Escort features the following specialist seats:
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 (1.045 for the Fleet Phantom-class Intel Escort), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Fleet Phantom-class Intel Escort 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 Phantom Intel Escort, the standard non-fleet version of the Fleet Phantom Intel Escort, will not apply the upgrade to this starship.
