Engineering captains have the Oddysey pack, and Science Captains have the Vesta and Dyson packs, but I've noticed that Captains who prefer dedicated escorts are left out in the rain when it comes to having the now standard iconic ship of their own. I don't count the Aquarius or chimera destroyer because one is a veteran reward, and one is an after thought of the odyssey and really just a novelty. So when is STO going to do Escort Captains justice? Any thoughts on this? I would love to see an iconic escort released with the three variations for freedom of play style.

Well, there is the Andorian escort 3-pack. Not a canon hero ship, but it is there. I would really like to see a Defiant 3-pack, with Quads included as well as a Dual Quantum launcher similar to what we see onscreen. Can just be a visual change, maybe with a reduced arc but faster recharge, and some 360 beam array for the third varient - that will give a (mostly) fully canon Defiant right out of the gate, and I would pay good money for it.

The dyson pack is basically a escort and science ship. also said before the kumari escort is the fed 3 pack. Honestly there are more end game escorts then either science or cruisers...

You get new tac ships each release with the lockboxes. The last time I can remember them releasing a sci ship in a lock box was the Wells.

I failed to mention the Andorian escorts or lockbox ship because I was speaking with the traditional federation ships in mind. I tend to discount the more "alien" ships like the Andorian and Catian ships etc. When I mention an escort pack I was speaking more distinctly federation ships. And of course a Klingon version for the KDF.

Ive seen that before and I absolutely love it. but I think that an iconic escort would have to be sleek but sturdy and compact, kind of like a tactical escort meets a patrol escort
Here is a link I found that has some concepts including the one you found.

What does your characters career have to do with the ship you fly?
You can fly any ship you want. I surely know what you mean, but the titles word choice is rather unfortunate IMO.

And btw. there are more escort type ships in STO than any other ship class, although it is a Star Trek game and Escorts aren't very classy Trek ships IMO.
Almost any new ship is more or less escort-ish. Even the new lockbox "Dreadnought" is basicly a Destroyer-Carrier.

I was clicking the imaginary +1 button for your post there so much that the imaginary button got stuck and I gave you an imaginary +9001.
