Peliar Zel escort vessel

A Peliar Zel escort vessel

In starship classification, an escort vessel was a starship whose primary purpose was to accompany other vessels as a means of protection. Escorts typically protected lesser armed vessels, or vessels carrying an important cargo.

In 2154, Degra's ship was protected by two Xindi-Reptilian warships, which served as escort ships, during initial testing of the Xindi test weapon in the proving ground of the Calindra system. (ENT: "Proving Ground")

In 2367, a radical faction based on the Beta moon of Peliar Zel intercepted the Federation shuttlecraft Hawking claiming to be an escort vessel. (TNG: "The Host")

The Defiant-class, originally developed to counter the Borg, was officially classified as an escort vessel, but was unofficially a warship. (DS9: "The Search, Part I")

Despite its euphemistic designation, the Defiant-class escort was the most advanced warship design in Starfleet in the 2370s. In Star Trek: First Contact, Worf protested Riker's statement that the Defiant was "little."
