The Escort Destroyers (ESDs) in the Galactic Federation of Allied Worlds Navy came from the FAR Project as a classification of Starships used as large support craft for flagships and carriers. These would typically have limited hangar space in favor of more weapons. These also would have faster acceleration then the craft it would escort but with very low maneuverability.
