Vigilant-class Ship Unveiled

Vigilant-class Ship Unveiled -

A sleek new starship to be featured in Star Trek Online has been revealed on the official STO website. The new ship is a Federation Vigilant-class starship, whose central focus is on combat operations. Due to this singular focus, living quarters are sparse, even for crew, and recreational and lounge areas have been combined into one multi-purpose area for the crew to get a bit of R&R.

More on the Vigilant:

The Vigilant's small size can be used to its advantage. It is fast and maneuverable, able to turn quickly to fire a torpedo salvo or present its strongest shield to an enemy. It is ideal for pursuing raiders or defending a larger vessel, and Starfleet has leaned heavily on the Vigilant class and its sister ships, the Defiant and the Gallant, to protect convoys in contested areas or track pirates to their bases.

What the Vigilant lacks in size it more than makes up for in power and defense. Two layers of ablative armor protect the Vigilant, and its reinforced shield generators can be modified to protect against different types of energy weapons. It packs a powerful punch both fore and aft, and can be outfitted with tetryon, plasma or polaron weapons. Some Vigilants have been outfitted with quantum torpedoes, although they are not standard to the class.
