Battle Cruiser

From Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
A Negh'Var Battle Cruiser.

Battle Cruisers are a type of playable starship used primarily by the Klingon Defense Force. These are among the largest vessels in the KDF fleet. Battle Cruisers are slow but tough warships. In comparison to a raptor, the battle cruiser carries slightly more in the way of firepower due to its increased size, but takes a hefty reduction to maneuverability in the process. Battle Cruisers do however have improved larger warp cores which allows them the luxury of more power to their systems. They also have a much stronger hull therefore can take more damage before being destroyed.

Over the 4 Tiers that Battle Cruisers are available to players their crew size different significantly, going from 400 to 2,500. Although still conforming to the standard Klingon ship design of long narrow hulls for the main body and a wing-like aft section, there are striking differences between the four tiers. The K't'inga configuration is roughly equal in size to that of a Raptor but the Negh'Var configuration is over three times bigger in length and height. Much like the other Klingon vessels they can also equip cannons to give them a good boost to firepower.

Federation and Klingon Battle Cruisers have 3 device slots and gain a bonus +10 weapons power and engine power. They also have access to three cruiser commands, as opposed to the four available to Federation cruisers:

Although they lack the conventional cruiser's ability to attract fire for crowd control, they can equip Dual Cannons in exchange. The Romulan Republic does not field any Battle Cruisers per se, although their Warbird Battle Cruisers share some similarities.

Variants[edit]

Klingon Battle Cruisers[edit]

K'Tanco Battle Cruiser[edit]

K'Tanco class
The K'Tanco is the first Battle Cruiser that players of the Klingon Empire will gain access to. It matches to the Federation Cruiser in most respects. However it has a higher turn rate and a slightly stronger hull than its Starfleet equivalent, but is one device slot short. Also it can mount Dual Cannons and Dual Heavy Cannons, a trait passed on to all further iterations of Battle Cruiser. The K'Tanco class is named for the famed battle cruiser IKS K'tanco. A lighter but more modern version of the K't'inga class Battle Cruiser, the K'Tanco has a squarer and more angular design. The forward command module is flatter and has an under-slung torpedo launcher. Unlike the traditional Klingon battle cruiser arrangement, the warp nacelles are integrated into the aft engine assembly, similar to a Bird-of-Prey, leaving the main forward battery to be mounted on Bird-of-Prey-style feather-patterned wings.

K't'inga Battle Cruiser[edit]

K't'inga class
The K't'inga class Battle Cruiser is a monster of a starship for its tier. It is the first vessel of both the Federation and Klingon Empire factions that has four frontal weapon slots (which can hold cannons). In comparison to the Federation Cruiser at this Tier (the Heavy Cruiser) it has a better turn rate, 300 additional crew, and comes equipped with a cloaking device. It does, however, have a weaker hull by 2,000 hit points, and due to its 4 forward weapon slots it only has 2 slots aft. Its lineage can be traced back to the D7 class encountered by Starfleet in the 23rd century. The K't'inga class is a prime example of the classic Klingon cruiser design, having its warp nacelles on fixed pylons with a feather pattern, and a large spheroid forward section on a long neck. The K't'inga class was first introduced in the early 2270s, but despite the vessel's age its popularity among officers of the Klingon Defense Force remains strong.

Koro't'inga Battle Cruiser[edit]

Koro't'inga class
The aging K't'inga class was refitted near the turn of the 25th century, updating a classic design to more modern requirements. The Koro't'inga variant is based on the first K't'inga design and has a thinner neck with braces. The hull is also thinned out which is dissimilar to typical Klingon rugged designs. It features a standard Klingon design with fixed wings that lead to the nacelles at the aft section of the ship, a neck stem connected to the main hull and the bridge located towards the front.

Kamarag Battlecruiser[edit]

Kamarag class
The Kamarag class was first designed in the mid-24th century, but only a few prototype vessels were built. After problems were found in the ship's power transfer systems, the design was shelved. Empire engineers later created the mighty Vor'cha Battle Cruiser. Now that the Klingon Empire and its allies are looking for new ships, a team at the Ty'Gokor shipyards has revisited the Kamarag class. Its power problems were easily solved by modern EPS systems, and the Kamarag was reimagined as a mid-sized vessel that can be tougher than a Bird-of-Prey but more maneuverable than a standard Battle Cruiser.

Vor'cha Battle Cruiser[edit]

Vor'cha class
The Vor'cha class Battle Cruiser is obtained when a Klingon player achieves the rank of Captain. The Vor'cha was the main attack cruiser of the Klingon Defense Force during the mid-24th century. One of the first Klingon cruisers to deviate from the classic design of vessels like the K't'inga class or D7 class, the Vor'cha has a forked forward section housing the main forward battery. The command section is further back and the neck thicker to accommodate more crew quarters and internal systems. The ship size is much larger compared to the K't'inga models (nearly double the length), and due to this has nearly double the crew. The ship stands very well toe-to-toe with an Exploration Cruiser. It has more crew and nearly double the turn rate, but one less device slot and a weaker hull.

Vor'Kang Battle Cruiser[edit]

Vor'Kang class
Based on the classic Vor'cha class ships of the late 2360s, the new Refit Vor'Kang class was engineered to combat the growing threat from the Federation. This costume is only unlocked by obtaining the Vor'Kang Battle Cruiser but is then available on the Vor'cha Battle Cruiser, Vor'cha Battle Cruiser Retrofit and Fleet Tor'Kaht Battle Cruiser Retrofit.

Negh'Var Heavy Battle Cruiser[edit]

Negh'Var class
The Negh'Var class is obtained at the Brigadier General rank. It continues as its predecessors did in terms of the increased size and crew compliment. In comparison to the Rear Admiral Federation Cruisers, it has 2.5x to 3.2x the crew compliment, better turn rates and can load cannons, and has the same hull and shield strength. It is one of few vessels in the Klingon Defense Force that has eight weapon slots. It was first known to the Federation in 2372 during a skirmish with Deep Space 9. The Negh'var is an imposing vessel with broad, fixed wings carrying twin warp nacelles. Similar to the Vor'cha class, the Negh'Var has a large forked forward section and weapons array.

Mirror Universe Negh'Var Heavy Battle Cruiser[edit]

Negh'Var class
The Negh'Var Battle Cruiser exists in the Mirror Universe also, and a handfull of these ships have bled over into the Prime Universe via the Azure Nebula spacial rift. As opposed to the Regent's Flagship seen in the Mirror Universe decades ago, these Negh'var's are sized like their Prime-Universe counterparts. The differences between the Prime and the Mirror ships is the Mirror-version swaps the Lt. Cmdr Engineering and the Lt. Science bridge officer stations, to Lt. Cmdr Science and a Lt. Engineering stations. Additionally, the Mirror version is more versatile with the console layout, trading an Engineering console for an additional Science console.

Vor'cha Battle Cruiser Retrofit[edit]

Vor'cha class
This Retrofit vessel is a heavily modified version of the Vor'cha Battle Cruiser (Tier 4). The Klingon Defense Force upgraded this variant with the latest acquired technology seized by the Empire in the early 25th century. The Retrofit is more maneuverable than the Negh'var and features slightly more Tactical orientation than its huge counterpart.

Mirror Universe Vor'cha Battle Cruiser[edit]

Vor'cha class
The Vor'cha Battle Cruiser apparently exists in the Mirror Universe also, and a handfull of these ships have bled over into the Prime Universe via the Azure Nebula spacial rift. The differences between the Mirror and Prime versions is that this was constructed initially on-par with modern technology (hence, no retrofit) and features an Ensign Science Bridge Officer station as opposed to a Tactical Bridge Officer station on the Prime Retrofit.

Kamarag Battlecruiser Retrofit[edit]

Kamarag class
The Kamarag Retrofit is an upgraded version of the standard Kamarag Battlecruiser, and features an extremely versitile layout for a Klingon Battle Cruiser, with a Lt. Commander Science Bridge Officer station and Lieutenant and Ensign Tactical Bridge Officer stations, allowing multi-role to be emphasised on this ship.

Mogh Battle Cruiser[edit]

Mogh class
The introduction of Starfleet’s Avenger Class Battle Cruiser sparked a bit of an arms race between the Federation and the Klingon Defense Force. There was no way that the KDF’s engineers would let the Federation outdo them. As a result, several teams of engineers have been working on iterations of the Klingon Defense Force's battle cruiser technology.

Bortas Battle Cruiser[edit]

Bortasqu' Class
Born from the Ty'Gokor Fleet Yards at the command of Chancellor J'mpok, the Bortas class leads the KDF into a new era of honor and glory for the Empire. Durability and versatility is an understatement, sporting many armored sections and recessed bussard collectors. The Bortas continues the styling of the previous flagship Negh'Var and its sister Qu'Daj. The Bortas has three upgraded cousins; the Bortasqu' Tactical Cruiser, the Bortasqu' War Cruiser and the Bortasqu' Command Cruiser.

K't'inga Battle Cruiser Retrofit[edit]

K't'inga class
The K't'inga Retrofit is an upgraded version of the standard K't'inga Battle Cruiser, and features a systems layout to the Vor'cha Battle Cruiser Retrofit, with the exception of lower Hull strength and higher maneuverability.

Fleet K't'inga Battle Cruiser Retrofit[edit]

K't'inga class
The Fleet K't'inga Retrofit is an upgraded version of the standard K't'inga Battle Cruiser, and features a systems layout to the Vor'cha Battle Cruiser Retrofit, with the exception of lower Hull strength and higher maneuverability. The Fleet version features an additional Science console slot and generally stronger Hull and Shield strength.

Fleet Tor'Kaht Battle Cruiser Retrofit[edit]

Tor'Kaht class
The Tor'Kaht is a variant of the Vor'cha class cruiser, featuring a much more compact design and a generally bulky and beefed up Hull all-round. The Tor'Kaht's design is reminiscent of the Vo'Quv Carrier. The Fleet version features a heavy Tactical orientation, and replaces the Lt. Commander Engineering with a Lt. Commander Tactical, a Lieutenant Science with a Lieutenant Universal and an Ensign Tactical with an Ensign Engineering Bridge Officer stations. In addition, the ship features an additional Tactical Console slot and better Hull and Shield strength.

Fleet Kamarag Battlecruiser Retrofit[edit]

Kamarag class
The Fleet Kamarag Retrofit is an upgraded version of the standard Kamarag Battlecruiser, and features an extremely versitile layout for a Klingon Battle Cruiser, with a Lt. Commander Science Bridge Officer station and Lieutenant and Ensign Tactical Bridge Officer stations, allowing multi-role to be emphasised on this ship. The Fleet version features an additional Science console slot and generally stronger Hull and Shield strength.

Fleet Mogh Battle Cruiser[edit]

Mogh class
The introduction of Starfleet’s Avenger Class Battle Cruiser sparked a bit of an arms race between the Federation and the Klingon Defense Force. There was no way that the KDF’s engineers would let the Federation outdo them. As a result, several teams of engineers have been working on iterations of the Klingon Defense Force's battle cruiser technology. The Fleet Mogh has been upgrades with an additional Science console slot and stronger overall hull and shield strength.

Fleet Negh'Var Heavy Battle Cruiser[edit]

Negh'Var class
The Fleet Negh'var is a modern and upgraded version of the standard Negh'var Battle Cruiser. The Fleet version features an additional Engineering console, replaces the Ensign Engineering with an Ensign Universal Bridge Officer station and better Hull and Shield strength.

Federation Battle Cruisers[edit]

Avenger Battle Cruiser[edit]

Avenger class
Since the war with the Klingon Empire began, Starfleet engineers have been working on ship designs intended for battle as well as exploration. One of the designs to come out of this effort was the Avenger Class Battle Cruiser. The Avenger Class Battle Cruiser’s design aims to provide a durable warship that is more maneuverable than Starfleet’s existing cruisers, and can carry a devastating amount of firepower. However, it does sacrifice a measure of hull strength for this extra maneuverability. There is nothing subtle about this starship class. The Avenger’s aggressive silhouette and available firepower makes it a formidable and intimidating presence in any battle.

The fleet version gains an additional Science console slot as well as stronger overall hull and shields.

Cross-Faction Battle Cruisers[edit]

Ferengi D'Kora Marauder[edit]

D'Kora class
The D’Kora Class is a Ferengi built Marauder, designed to function to serve as a Freighter for the Ferengi Alliance, exporting and importing trade goods to and from the Ferengi Alliance. The Marauder has also been known to serve as a Ferengi Battle Cruiser, possessing impressive firepower and the ability to survive over an extended period of time in certain circumstances. The ship is also equipped with a Battle Module, which allows the Marauder to literally transform into a configuration designed specifically for combat situations. Using this module and combining it with an EMP Pulse Generator as well as Swarm Missiles, the Marauder has its own fair share of fearsome weapons to hold its own in combat situations.


Tal Shiar Adapted Battle Cruiser[edit]

Khnial class
The Khnial Class is a series of powerful Tal Shiar Battle Cruisers based on the design of the D'deridex and upgraded with adapted Borg technology. By augmenting the D'deridex, the Tal Shiar designed this vessel to focus on crippling and disabling enemy ships, or even turning them against one another. Due to its advanced technology, the Khnial has access to Sensor Analysis, allowing to gradually increase its damage dealt to a single target, based on how long it keeps that target as its focus. Heavily resembling Nero's Narada from the 2009 Star Trek, the Khnial bears little, if any, resemblance to the sleek lines of Romulan Warbirds. The ship's jagged fore extrusions and angular appearance are due to incorporation of Borg technology in the ship's design.


Elachi Monbosh Battleship[edit]

Monbosh class
The Elachi Monbosh Battleship's distinctive silhouette has become a fearful sight to behold for any starship confronted by the Elachi fleet. The menacing upswept design of this battleship seems designed to instill dread in their opponents, even before the first shots are fired. Angular and menacing, the ship has a distinct horizontal upswept appearance, slightly reminiscent of the appearance of Nausicaan Destroyers. The ship performs much like the Fleet Tor'Kaht Battle Cruiser Retrofit, only this ship is more more flexible and more survivable than the Klingon ship.


Hirogen Apex Heavy Battlecruiser[edit]

Apex class
With an appearance derived from the large Hirogen ships seen by the U.S.S. Voyager, the Apex is a monster of a ship, with an in-game model as large as the (1300m) Vo'Quv Carrier. The prominent command section and massive body give the ship the appearance of something that could take an immense beating and still come back for more. The Apex is a truly fearsome vessel that is well suited to hunting down even the most deadly prey. The Apex lacks the maneuverability of its Hunter counterpart, but compensates with tremendous hull and shield strength.


Performance[edit]

The Battle Cruiser has a significant armament being the most well equipped Klingon Empire vessel in terms of weapons slots that players can customise. This is also strengthened by the fact, like all Klingon vessels, they can equip cannons for a damage boost.

The K't'inga variation is more of a forward facing vessel since 4 of the 6 available slots it gets are located at the fore end of the ship. At the General rank though when players are able to get the Negh'Var Battle Cruiser this is evened out and players will get 4 each at the fore and aft sections of the ship. This suits the ship well given it's sub-par maneuverability.

Battle Cruisers are not very fast in comparison to other ships in the Klingon fleet, although compared to Federation ships they are on par with the exception of the Escort type vessels. These ships have the most dedicated Engineering slots of any of the Klingon vessels, and at General rank can have three Engineering officer stations of various ranks
