The M'Chla-class Pilot Bird-of-Prey is a Tier 6 Raider which may be flown by Klingon Defense Force characters, including Klingon Empire-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. 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.

Players can obtain this starship from the Zen Store for 3,000 Zen small icon.png under the name M'Chla Pilot Bird-of-Prey (T6). This ship can be purchased individually, or as part of the Discovery Operations Pack for 12,000 Zen small icon.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

After Burnham's War ended and the Klingon Empire united under the leadership of Chancellor L'Rell, the 24 great houses began to consolidate their technology and the Klingon Imperial Fleet emerged as the united empire’s military. The technology base and method of each house differed wildly at the time, and to facilitate integration and mobilization under a broad imperial banner, KIF engineers made an effort to standardize and simplify the technology used in Klingon starships. Along the way, some of the craftsmanship and technology unique to each house was lost in favor of starships that could be quickly built by any yard in the Empire.

This Bird-of-Prey model was utilized by many Klingon houses prior to unification of the Empire under L'Rell's rule

As Starfleet has rediscovered relics from its past, so too have Klingons begun to look at the accomplishments of the 23rd century great houses. While acknowledging that unification was an important step for the Klingon people, many are able to appreciate their own relics of a bygone era and find renewed pride in the unique identity imbued into the ships of their house.

To that end, the High Council has ordered its generals to set aside several drydocks for the refit or construction of replicas of these old ships, using modern technology to maintain their operational relevance.

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 maneuverability make them hard to hit. Also, the Bridge Officer spaces on a Bird-of-Prey are mostly universal, which makes them more versatile.

Some concepts are timeless, and the Birds-of-Prey are such concept. The core is elegant in its simplicity - a ship that can appear anywhere, accomplish its goal, and quickly vanish. This trends it towards many of the same directions - a lightweight, highly mobile ship with heavy guns and powerful stealth systems, and a need for flexibility to adapt to the specific missions at hand. The M'Chla-class Pilot Bird-of-Prey is no different in its goals than the 23rd century Bird-of-Prey design that had inspired it, but is all the more fearsome with all the improvements that time and alliances have brought it.

M'Chla class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The M'Chla class, much like the ships of the era, establishes a clear design aesthetic which is carried over to modern Birds-of-Prey - elongated wings, a long neck with a beak-like head. Unlike other ships of its type, its wings are in a fixed position at all times.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal consoles[edit | edit source]

The M'Chla Pilot Bird-of-Prey comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Graviton Displacer].

Specialization seating[edit source]

The M'Chla-class Pilot Bird-of-Prey features the following specialist seats:

  • Commander Tactical-Pilot Commander Tactical/Pilot 
  • Lieutenant Universal-Pilot Lieutenant Universal/Pilot

Battle Cloak

The M'Chla Pilot Bird-of-Prey has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking. It has a unique cloaking effect as seen on Star Trek: Discovery.

Experimental Weapon[edit source]

The M'Chla Pilot Bird-of-Prey 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.
This vessel comes with the unique [Hypercharged Field Projector] which deals Electrical Damage in a 360° targeting arc.

Pilot Maneuvers

Pilot ships can perform a sudden maneuver in each horizontal direction: Forward, Backward, Left or Right. Executing each maneuver will rapidly reposition your starship while granting very brief damage immunity, but costs all available thruster fuel which takes several seconds to recover.

Raider Flanking

Frigates, Light Escorts, Raiders, and Scout Ships come with a built-in passive damage boost available when striking an enemy's rear arc. 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.


Scaling starship[edit source]

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

Equipment slots[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 1 1 2 1
10-19 2 2 2 3 1
20-29 3 2 2 3 2
30-39 3 3 3 4 2
40+ 4 3 3

Hull strength[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 (0.95 for the M'Chla Pilot Bird-of-Prey), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

Hull scaling table
