Tier 2 Variants

The Saber-class Escort is a Tier 2 (Level 10) 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.

Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 2,500 Refined dilithium icon.png.  

This ship can also be obtained by Federation players for free upon reaching level 10 by using their free SRFED2.png Starship Requisition token.

Overview

It is the first set in the Escort category of playable starships that players in Star Trek Online are available to purchase if playing on the Starfleet faction. Escorts are focused around forward firepower and are one of the several Federation ship types that can equip Dual Cannons, along with Destroyers, Battlecruisers and a host of others. Escort vessels suffer from weaker shields and hulls compared to Cruisers and Science Vessels of the same tier.

Class variants

Class Information
Ship Variant - FED - Saber Escort (T2).jpg
Saber class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Saber class Escort is a late 24th century model, brought into service to combat the Borg. The design saw extensive action in the Dominion War, where Starfleet officers enjoyed its heavy armament and compact target profile.
Ship Variant - FED - Rapier Escort (T2).jpg
Rapier class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Rapier-class Escort represents a balance between the more traditional design philosophy of the Saber class, and the more radical-looking Andorian-inspired Ushaan class. The Rapier class was designed by staff from the Starfleet Corps of Engineers who served on the older U.S.S. DaVinci. It has several structural and functional improvements that the DaVinci's crew tested on Saber-class vessels during the Dominion War.
Ship Variant - FED - Ushaan Escort (T2).jpg
Ushaan class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Ushaan-class Escort takes its name from the traditional Ushaan, a historical Andorian duel to the death. The name is fitting, given the design's similarity to the ushaan-tor mining pick the duel is named for.
Ship Variant - FED - Gladius Escort Refit (T2).jpg
Gladius class
SKIN UNLOCK: Gladius Escort Refit, 37,500 Refined dilithium icon.png
The Gladius class is a variant on the Saber class that saw extensive action during the Dominion War. The Gladius has an updated look and technology for Starfleet captains in the 25th century.

Mirror
SKIN UNLOCK: Mirror Saber Escort Retrofit, Infinity Prize Pack - T5 Ship icon.png
