The B'rel Bird-of-Prey is a Lieutenant (Tier 1) level Raider and the first starship of Klingon Defense Force players.

New players are given command of a B'rel during the tutorial. This ship can also be purchased for 5,000 Refined dilithium icon.png from the Starship Requisition Officer.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Birds-of-Prey are small, fast and fill a variety of roles for the Empire. They can be used as scouts, raiders or patrol ships. They're vulnerable when cloaked, but their speed and maneuverability make them hard to hit. Also, the Bridge Officer spaces on a Bird-of-Prey are mostly universal, which makes them more versatile.

The B'rel-class Bird-of-Prey is a very maneuverable starship, easily outdoing the Starfleet's Light Cruiser.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - KDF - B'Rel Bird-of-Prey (T1).png
B'rel-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The B'rel-class has some interesting design features. Ship's wings have a feathered wing pattern. The main hull has a dual ridged dorsal section with a neck leading off to the bridge. Like all Birds-of-Prey, the vessel's wings are ordinarily in upward position, and only move down when entering combat.
Ship Variant - KDF - Koloth Bird-of-Prey (T1).png
Koloth-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Koloth-class follows a very similar design including the iconic feathered pattern on the wings. The ship has a larger engine assembly and the tips of the wings fold outward rather than down.
Ship Variant - KDF - B'Rotlh Bird-of-Prey (T1).png
B'Rotlh-class
SKIN UNLOCK: B'Rotlh Bird-of-Prey, 500 Zen small icon.png
The B'Rotlh-class is a modern variant of the classic B'rel design, featuring a lower-pitched head section, a beefed up engineering section and wings that fold forward more than the original. The ship also features larger wing-mounted disruptor cannons.
Ship Variant - KDF - Kor Bird-of-Prey (T6).png
Kor-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Kor Bird-of-Prey, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
The Kor-class Bird-of-Prey is based on the famed B'rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit's original design, however it has been heavily modified to be better suited for battle against the Klingon Empire's current foes.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

The B'rel Bird-of-Prey doesn't come equipped with any universal consoles.

However, it can equip [Console - Universal - Enhanced Induction Coils] which is part of the Stealth Fighter Set. This console is obtainable with B'Rotlh Bird-of-Prey (T1) , but can also be equipped on the B'rel Bird-of-Prey.

Despite being a B'rel variant, Kor Bird-of-Prey (T6)'s [Console - Universal - Quantum Warhead Module] is not equippable on this vessel.

Cloak

The B'rel Bird-of-Prey has a cloak that allows the ship to cloak when not in combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Raider Flanking

Light Escorts, Raiders, and Scout Ships come with a built-in passive damage boost available when striking an enemy's rear arc. To make up for the flimsy nature of Raider-type vessels, and to support their high turn rate and maneuverability, standard raider flanking grants:

  • +25% damage to NPC enemy when attacking rear arc.
  • +8.25% damage to Player enemy when attacking rear arc.

Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]

Klingon starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The B'rel Bird-of-Prey was a starting ship for Klingon Empire characters prior to Season 5 when starting level was raised to Level 20 (Commander) and this vessel was removed from the playable ship roster, the Norgh Bird-of-Prey taking its place. With the Legacy of Romulus expansion and the reinstatement of KDF players starting at Level 1, this ship was returned to the regular playable Klingon ship roster and once again became the starting vessel.
  • Federation players command the B'rel-class vessel, the I.K.S. Targ, during the Klingon War episode “The Doomsday Device”.
