Destroyers are usually smaller, swift, long-endurance starships utilized to protect larger ships against enemy or hostile threats. They are usually lightly armed.

In 24th century Starfleet, the term "destroyer" was not favored, with the term "frigate" being used more often.

An escort may be the same or similar to a destroyer.
