The Mirror Universe Ki'tang Bird-of-Prey Retrofit is a Brigadier General (Tier 5) level Raider. This ship is available to Klingon Defense Force and Klingon-aligned players as a rare drop from the [Xindi-Amphibious Lock Box] or the [Infinity Lock Box]. They may also be found on the exchange.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Since the first known encounters with them, xenobiologists have supported theories suggesting that the Tholian Assembly actually spans multiple dimensions in spacetime. These claims are supported by their frequent involvement with the so-called “Mirror Universe,” as well as their apparent interest in the Temporal Cold War, and time displaced artifacts. It is said that the Tholian homeworld inhabits a region of space where the borders between dimensions are unnaturally thin, and that they have developed technology that allows them to cross those borders at will.

Within these areas, Tholian operatives have been utilizing multi-dimensional phasing technology to not only penetrate the borders between our spatial dimensions, but also the barriers of the space-time continuum itself. Their temporal incursions have resulted in the retrieval of technology, weapons, personnel and even entire starships, pulled from distant times and places.

Their temporal incursion technology is not perfect, however. Ripples from their activity have caused uncontrolled temporal anomalies to appear up to several hundred light years from their source. Daredevil profiteers from the Lobi Crystal Consortium have set up an intricate supply chain dedicated to seeking out these uncontrolled ripple anomalies, and exploiting them to retrieve goods that they can then sell to the highest bidders. Starfleet, Klingon Defense Force and Romulan Republic all have an obvious interest in these valuable time-displaced artifacts, for it may be that the fate of time itself will be in the hands of the faction that controls them.

One of the recovered starships is the Klingon Ki'tang-class Bird-of-Prey Retrofit, a Mirror Universe variant of the Empire's own low tier Bird-of-Prey.

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-or-Prey are mostly universal, which makes them more versatile.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - KDF - Ki'tang Bird-of-Prey (T4).png
Ki'tang-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Ki'tang-class has a very angular design and a much narrower wing-span than the lower tier Birds-of-Prey. The ship has a very-stripped down look, more reminiscent of the QulDun-class than the Norgh-class Bird-of-Prey.
Ship Variant - KDF - Ch'Tang Bird-of-Prey (T4).png
Ch'Tang-class
SKIN UNLOCK: Ch'Tang Bird-of-Prey, 1,500 Zen small icon.png
The Ch'Tang-variant has a very staggered wingspan and foreign hull extremities, giving it a more insect look than previous Birds-of-Prey. This Bird-of-Prey design was clearly influenced by engineers of the factions allied to the Klingon Defense Force.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Battle Cloak

The Mirror Universe Ki'tang Bird-of-Prey Retrofit has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Experimental Weapon[edit source]

The Mirror Universe Ki'tang Bird-of-Prey Retrofit 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.

Raider Flanking

Raiders and Scout Ships come with a built-in passive damage boost available when striking an enemy's rear arc. To make up for the flimsy nature of Raider vessels, and 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 Equipment[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.
