Escort ships are heavily armed and very maneuverable and fast. They pack more firepower than most other ships and can load cannons. Their cons are their lack of science, medical or engineering skills. If you’re a decent Star Trek fan, you’ll probably remember the Defiant from DS9: who wouldn’t want to ride one?
