The Shran-class Light Pilot Escort is a Tier 6 Raider 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.
Like their predecessor, the Shran-class Light Escorts began as a concept from a team of engineers trying to meet a variety of common wartime requests - a starship that didn't require too many resources to build or fly, one that packed a serious punch, and one that had the flexibility to adapt to the design at hand. Due a combination of the prototypes found at Yard 39 and convergent design, that concept ended up becoming a direct successor to the Magee, but one built up to modern standards and with the ability to realize what were just dreams of some of the Magee's original engineers.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free|
The Magee class was in service in the mid-23rd century. One of the smallest ship types of its era, its most distinctive feature are two warp nacelles that intersect the saucer hull.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free with this starship|
The Shran class is directly inspired by the Magee class from the 23rd century. The shape of the ship's saucer is similar to that of the Akira-class Heavy Escort, with two bulky nacelles intersecting the hull.

When damaging a foe that doesn't have you targeted:
(Placate can only occur once per 60 seconds per foe)
The Shran Light Pilot Escort comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Graviton Displacer].
The Shran-class Light Pilot 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.
This vessel comes with the unique [Hypercharged Field Projector] which deals Electrical Damage in a 360° targeting arc.
Pilot ships can perform a sudden maneuver in each horizontal direction: Forward, Backward, Left or Right. Executing each maneuver will rapidly reposition your starship while granting very brief damage immunity, but costs all available thruster fuel which takes several seconds to recover.
Frigates, Light Escorts, Raiders, and Scout Ships come with a built-in passive damage boost available when striking an enemy's rear arc. To support their high turn rate and maneuverability, standard raider flanking grants:
- +33% damage to NPC enemy when attacking rear arc.
- +11% damage to Player enemy when attacking rear arc.
The Shran-class Light Pilot Escort features the following specialist seats:
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 (.95 for the Shran-class Light Pilot Escort), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
|Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP|
By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Shran-class Light Pilot 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 Fleet Magee Light Pilot Escort, the fleet version of the Shran Light Pilot Escort, will not apply the upgrade to this starship.
