The São Paulo-class was a type of tactical escort or corvette in Starfleet service in the early 25th century. It was an advanced variant of the Defiant-class, named for USS São Paulo which had been renamed USS Defiant in 2375, which was in turn named for the Brazilian city São Paulo. (Star Trek Online)


Six Defiant-series escorts including at least three São Paulo-class ships were assigned to Commodore Tyria Sark's mission to Yarmta in 2411. These included USS Erbil, USS Cape Town, and USS New Samarkand. (The War of the Masters: "A Good Compromise")
