Is there a federation equivalent to a klingon bat leth?

Keep in mind that the players you tend to encounter in ground PvP are characters that have spent their points in skills related to ground combat. So even if you can use a Bat'leth, if your captain is mostly specced for space combat, your performance may be significantly different.
I don't know if it's possible for a Fed character to use the Bat'leth. It is possible to get one, as I noticed there were three of them in my Fed fleet's bank, but I haven't attempted to use them. Presumably these were mailed to a Fed character from a Klingon character.
Also, in addition to Palm Strike, if you leave one of your weapon slots free, you get two martial arts attacks. There are also kits that offer a few more melee attacks.
