The Gorkon Science Battlecruiser is a Lieutenant General (Tier 6) level scaling Battle Cruiser. This ship is available to Klingon Defense Force and Klingon-aligned players from the Cryptic store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png, or as part of the the cross-faction 3-pack T6 Bortasqu bundle for 6,000 Zen small icon.png, or a 9-pack cross-faction bundle for 12,000 Zen small icon.png.

This starship can be used from any level, upon completion of the tutorial experience. As you level up, this ship gains additional hull, weapon slots, and console slots.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Bortasqu'-class and its improved sister classes are some of the largest, most powerful battle cruisers in the Klingon arsenal. Their massive hulls afford them incredible resilience in battle, but they sacrifices turn rate for their bulk. They are designed to take on any foe no matter how powerful, and because of that are designed with versatility in mind.

The Gorkon-class Science Battlecruiser has a strong Science focus, and features more Science Bridge Officer seating and Science console slots than the Martok-class and Kahless-class variants.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - KDF - Bortasqu' Battlecruiser (T5).png
Bortasqu'-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The first in a new generation of Klingon starships, the original Bortasqu'-class introduced various weapons and technologies that would be used in the design of other powerful warships in the future. The ship features many armored sections and recessed bussard collectors.
Ship Variant - KDF - Gorkon Science Battlecruiser (T6).png
Gorkon-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
Of all the Klingon Flagships the Gorkon-class most closely resembles the original Bortasqu'-class. Compared to its predecessor, the ship is somewhat flatter in design. Instead of one larger warp nacelle, the Gorkon has three, circularly-oriented nacelles on the tip of each wing.
Ship Variant - KDF - Kahless War Battlecruiser (T6).png
Kahless-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Kahless War Battlecruiser, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
Like other Klingon Bortasqu'-class Flagships, the Kahless-class is lathered in weapons, features powerful engines and enough space for all the multi-purpose war-time goodness. While based on the original design for the Bortasqu', the ship also shares similarities with the Mogh Battle Cruiser.
Ship Variant - KDF - Martok Tactical Battlecruiser (T6).png
Martok-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Martok Tactical Battlecruiser, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
A tactical variant, the Martok-class is a bit more slender and aggressive when compared to its sister classes. A set of four big cannons on the front of this ship helps bring out a bit more of the "battle" in the battlecruiser classification.

  • Lieutenant Commander Universal/Command Lieutenant Commander Universal/Command

Cloak

The Gorkon Science Battlecruiser has a cloak that allows the ship to cloak when not in combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Cruiser Commands[edit | edit source]

As a battle cruiser, this ship supports the following cruiser commands:

Sensor Analysis[edit source]

Sensor Analysis is an active toggle ability. While maintaining a Sensor Lock on a target, the player gains a stacking effect that either improves the damage and power drain against an enemy, or improves any heal directed towards an ally. This effect stacks every 3 seconds, to a maximum of 6 stacks after 18 continuous seconds. To maintain the desired effect, the player must hold the sensor lock.

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.

Scaling Starship[edit source]

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment Slot Scaling[edit source]

As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, and science console slots will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Level Console tac icon.png Console eng icon.png Console sci icon.png Fore weapons Aft weapons
0-9 2 2 1 2 2
10-19 2 2 2 3 2
20-29 3 3 2 3 3
30-39 3 3 3 4 4
40+ 4 4 3

Hull Strength Scaling[edit source]

This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.475 for the Gorkon Science Battlecruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

Notes[edit | edit source]

The Bortasqu' Bridge
  • This vessel comes with the unique Bortasqu' bridge.
  • The Gorkon Science Battlecruiser is named for Gorkon, a Chancellor of the Klingon Empire in the late-23rd Century until his assassination shortly before the Khitomer Conference in 2293.
