The Bortasqu' Tactical Cruiser is a (Tier 5) level Klingon Battle Cruiser vessel. The Bortasqu' is the KDF's largest, most powerful battle cruiser, and the new flagship of the Klingon Empire.

This vessel is available from the C-Store either as a single ship for 2,500 Zen small icon.png, or in a 3-pack containing all 3 variants for 5,000 Zen small icon.png.

The Bortasqu' Tactical Cruiser comes with a [Console - Universal - Disruptor Autocannon], which is a weapon that fires a single relentless disruptor barrage against a single target. This massive weapon has a very long cool down, and is not affected by Bridge Officer abilities like Rapid Fire or Scatter Volley.

Performance[edit | edit source]

The Bortasqu' Tactical Cruiser can be a tough option to play. On the one hand, it is the only Klingon ship outside of cross-faction ships like the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship to mount 5 Tactical Consoles. With these and 4 Engineering consoles (on top of the ship's already high durability) the Bortasqu' Tactical can play like a very dangerous tanking Battle Cruiser, soaking up almost as much damage as it inflicts.

Beam Arrays and Turrets, paired with abilities such as Beam Overload and Emergency Power to Weapons, can be highly useful (especially considering the ship's +15 Weapons Power, giving it a bit more punch than other Beam-dependent Cruisers). The ship's flaws are its poor maneuverability (Turn Rate 5.5 and Inertia Rating 18) and its poor Science facilities. Players should focus on maximizing damage output in return for lower healing potential.
