If the Federation Assult Cruiser is too aggressive for you, but you still want the resilience of a Cruiser, then you may like the Star Cruisers. These have more of a Scientific advantage. Honestly I’m not too big on these designs. They seem too simple, too smooth. The starship types available are the Avenger Class, Emissary Class, and Vanguard Class.
Next in line for the Tier 5 starships of Star Trek Online are my personal favorites: the Federation Assault Cruisers. These big, beautiful, and powerful, ships consist of the Sovereign Class, Noble Class, and Majestic Class.
The alternate escort option for your Admiralty is the Fleet Escort. Fleet Escorts look more aggresive and come with a larger crew. This starship type consists of the Hermes Class, Dervish Class, and the Gryphon Class.
Once you have achieved the Rank of Rear Admiral, Lower-Half, not only are you granted access to the Tier 5 Starships, but you have more of a variety of the type of starship you can choose from. For those with the Tactical preference, your first option is the Advanced Escort, which includes the Prometheus Class, Hephaestus Class, and the Phoenix Class. At this point in your game, however, the Multi-Vector Assault mode is not available…yet.
Here are the orthographic views of the Odyssey Class U.S.S. Enterprise, NCC-1701-F. It would be nice if there were some detailed schematics released for this beauty. I’m sure someone will create them eventually…
I just came across these yesterday: some beautiful renders of the new Odyssey class starship, U.S.S. Enterprise, NCC-1701-F, fan-designed for Star Trek Online. We are anxiously awaiting her appearance within the game.
The Tier 4 Federation Exploration Cruisers inlcudes one of my favorite new starship designs to be released for play in Star Trek Online: the Envoy Class. Also included in this level are the classic Galaxy Class, and the Celestial Class.
