A Qa'Tel Flight Deck Raptor.

Flight Deck Raptors are a type of Klingon playable starship. They are powerful, medium-sized warships of the Klingon Defense Force. Flight-Deck Raptors are available at tier 6, to Klingon characters from the rank of Lieutenant General upward. They are built for firepower, with the added versatility of a single Hangar Bay. They are heavily inspired by the Federation Escort Carriers and the Romulan Tactical Warbird Carriers.

Flight Deck Raptors Raptors share with other Raptors the triangular configuration typical of the Klingon fleet, with bridge forward at the narrow point of the hull, and warp nacelles at the aft corners. The main body of the Raptor follows the center line of the ship from the bridge to the stern, increasing in volume toward the stern. Wings taper back from the neck forward, to the nacelles aft-starboard and aft-port.

All Klingon Flight Deck Raptors have 2 device slots and gain a bonus +15 weapons power and +5 engines power.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Qa'Tel Flight Deck Raptor[edit | edit source]

Qa'Tel class

The tier 6 Qa'Tel Raptor is the largest ship of its kind in the Klingon Fleet. It is durable, maneuverable and can deploy a wing of fighters. This innovative design was inspired by Starfleet's Heavy Escort Carriers and the Romulan Republic’s Tactical Carrier Warbirds. It was designed from the ground up to battle the Iconian threat. This starship features a Lieutenant Commander Engineering/Pilot specialist seat. The Qa'Tel Flight Deck Raptor has a single hangar bay equipped with To'Duj Fighters. These light craft are equipped with Disruptor Pulse Cannons and Micro Photon Torpedoes.

Performance[edit | edit source]

The Flight Deck Raptor is a formidable ship for any opponent, and for a player it brings a large amount of firepower to a fight. The ship is quite maneuverable and can out-match most Federation vessels (except for the Escort type starship). Flight Deck Raptors, like most Klingon vessels, have the ability to equip cannons into their arsenal. The brunt of a Raptors firepower comes from the front of the ship which holds more weapon slots than the aft section.

Flight Deck Raptors unfortunately have weak shields due to sub-par Science and Engineering stations, while due to their small crew size they are also limited by a poor repair rate. They are very quick ships at impulse speeds and are only slightly slower than a Bird-of-Prey. In comparison to Federation vessels are equal to Escort Carrier class ships and faster than Cruisers and Science vessels. This provides the player with a good ability to maintain their firepower on specific sections of the opponents shields and hull.

All Flight Deck Raptors are fitted with a single hangar bay equipped with To'Duj Fighters, adding more firepower and the ability to harass targets while cloaked, in comparison to standard Raptors. Alternatively the hangar bay can be loaded with support craft, to partially offset the minor amount of defensive options.

Klingon Flight Deck Raptors are also fitted with a Cloak cloaking device, though battle cloak technology is reserved for Birds-of-Prey.
