The Vishap-class frigate was a Gorn Hegemony starship class in service in the early 25th century. It was equipped with 2 disruptor beam arrays and 2 photon torpedo launchers. Vishap-class frigates were outmatched by Tuatara-class cruisers and Balaur-class dreadnoughts in terms of size and armament. It was among the Gorn ship classes not acquired by the Klingon Defense Force after the Hegemony became a vassal state of the Klingon Empire. (ST video game: Star Trek Online)


In the year 2409, the Gorn participated in the Klingon war effort against the Federation. Vishap-class frigates were among the Gorn fleet blockading a planet in the Tostig system. They were also part of fleets roaming the Regulus sector block and patrolling Klingon space. (STO missions: "Halting the Gorn Advance", "Defend the Regulus Sector Block", "Defend the Pi Canis Sector Block")

Ships of this class were used both by the Hegemonic High Command and by the Gorn resistance to attack Starfleet and KDF starbases. (STO missions: "Fleet Alert", "Starbase Fleet Defense", "Fleet Transport Defense")

Vishap-class frigates were part of the Gorn flotilla invading the Gamma Eridon star system in the Tau Dewa sector block. (STO mission: "Gamma Eridon System Patrol")
