Overview[edit | edit source]

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.

The Qaw'Dun-class Bird-of-Prey (also known as M'Char class) is a Refit version of the standard QulDun Bird-of-Prey.

Class variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information

QulDun class
The QulDun class is slightly different from the B'rel-class Bird-of-Prey. While using a classic Klingon design for the starship, the QulDun features no feathered wing pattern on the wings. The bridge section of the hull is more pointed and not as big as the B'rel's. The main hull is also slightly larger.
