Star Trek Online – Special Starships – Gladius Class

Just recently added as a new class available for the Tier 2 Federation Escorts comes the Gladius Class. 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.

This console may be equipped in any console slot of any Escort.
