|USS Sao Paulo|
The USS Sao Paulo was a Federation Defiant-class escort/destroyer starship in Starfleet service in the 24th century. This ship was in active service around the 2370s decade. (ST video games: Armada, Armada II)
In the early 25th century, the Sao Paulo underwent an extensive refit that replaced or updated all of its major components, including the addition of quad phaser cannons tied directly into the ship's engines for power. (STO video game: Star Trek Online)
- No specific history or definitive final fate was established for this vessel in the Armada series as its name was selected for a destroyer by the Armada I, II game developers, and is placed randomly each time the ship appears. In Star Trek Online, it is revealed that the second Defiant-class USS Sao Paulo was the first ship of a refit subclass named for itself, some 35 years after the first USS Sao Paulo was renamed Defiant.
