The Bortas Battle Cruiser is a Lieutenant General (Tier 5) level Battle Cruiser, first introduced as a limited-time reward for participating in the 2 Year Anniversary Event. This ship is currently available to Klingon Defense Force and Klingon-aligned players from the Tier V Fleet Starbase Shipyards for 200,000 Fleet Credits.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Not content to rest on their laurels, the Klingon Defense Force engineering teams at the Ty'Gokor Fleet Yards have been hard at work advancing Klingon ship design into the 25th century. When Chancellor J'mpok demanded a new, more powerful flagship to lead the Empire, they were ready with the Bortas-class Battle Cruiser, a ship that will bring swift vengeance to enemies of the Empire.

Until the Operation: Delta Rising, the Bortas-class Battle Cruiser was the largest, most powerful battle cruiser in the Klingon arsenal. Its massive hull affords it incredible resilience in battle, but it sacrifices turn rate for that size. It comes with a standard cloaking device, but its massive energy signature means the cloak is less effective than it would be on a smaller vessel. The Bortas-class is designed to take on any foe no matter how powerful, and because of that is designed with versatility in mind.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

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-class continues the styling of the previous flagship Negh'Var-class and its sister Qu'Daj-class.
