The B'rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit is a Lieutenant General (Tier 5) level Raider. This ship is available to Klingon Defense Force and Klingon-aligned players from the Cryptic store for 2,000 Zen small icon.png.

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 vulnerability make them hard to hid. 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.

The Klingon Defense Force upgraded the B'rel-class Retrofit with the latest acquired technology seized by the Klingon Empire in the early 25th century.

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 Retrofit doesn't come equipped with any universal consoles.

However, it can equip [Console - Universal - Enhanced Induction Coils] and [Console - Universal - Quantum Warhead Module] which form the Stealth Fighter Set. These consoles are obtainable with B'Rotlh Bird-of-Prey (T1) and Kor Bird-of-Prey (T6), but can also be equipped on the B'rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit. For each console added after the first, an additional passive bonus is unlocked.

Enhanced Battle Cloak

The B'rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit has an enhanced battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking. The enhanced cloak also allows the use of mines, torpedoes, and most Bridge Officer and Captain abilities while remaining cloaked.

Experimental Weapon[edit source]

The B'rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit comes with an Experimental Weapon slot. This additional slot does not fit standard weapons. Unlike standard starship weapons, Experimental weapons are not affected by weapon firing modes, such as those granted by bridge officer abilities.

Raider Flanking

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 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.
