Bortasqu' War Cruiser
This vessel is available from the C-Store either as a single ship for 2,500 , or in a 3-pack containing all 3 variants for 5,000 .
The Bortasqu' War Cruiser comes with a [Console - Universal - HoH'SuS Bird-of-Prey], which allows the ship to launch a single HoH'SuS Bird-of-Prey, which follows the player and attacks their target.
The Bortasqu' War Cruiser version also includes an HoH'SuS Bird-of-Prey console. The HoH'SuS Bird-of-Prey is a a mini ship which detaches from the aft mission pod on the Bortasqu', which will attack your selected target. It comes equipped with Disruptor Quad Cannons, Disruptor Turrets, Subspace Jump and Transphasic Torpedoes. When it is destroyed it will return to your ship and will take 3 mintues to recharge and be usable again.
Of the three Bortasqu' variants, the War Cruiser is the most Engineering focused, and in that role it outshines even the Fleet Negh'Var Heavy Battle Cruiser. 5 Engineering consoles, a Commander Engineering and 2 Universal Bridge Officer slots mean the ship can be an extremely durable tank, surviving and healing incredible amounts of damage. 4 Tactical Consoles and selective application of the Universal Bridge Officers means the ship can also deal out a fair amount of damage in kind. Due to the ship's extreme slowness, players should rely on Beam Arrays, and Turrets to have as wide a firing arc as possible. Ultimately, if players want an excellent tank and don't mind sacrificing the maneuverability of other Klingon Battle Cruisers, this is the ship for them.
