The Qib Intel 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 Delta Operations Pack.

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]

Introduced with the launch of the Delta Rising expansion, the Qib-class Intel Battlecruiser is the most stealthy and agile battlecruiser in the Klingon fleet. Lighter than most other Klingon battlecruisers, it sacrifices a measure of hull strength for additional maneuverability.

The Intel Battlecruiser features a Battle Cloaking Device and Active Sensor Arrays. The former allows the starship to cloak even while in combat, and the latter allows the Intel craft to gather information about the target to expose a vulnerability.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
Ship Variant - KDF - Qib Intel Battlecruiser (Alpha) (T6).png
Qib-class Alpha
The Qib-class has been designed alongside Starfleet's Phantom-class, Eclipse-class and Scryer-class and Romulan Republic's Faeht-class to conduct covert missions and high-risk strikes in hostile space. The ship's minimal profile helps to evoke a sense of a ship so sleek and with such a miniscule energy profile it could swiftly and silently ‘slip’ past foes undetected.

Taking inspiration from the classic Klingon battlecruisers, such as the Negh'Var-class and the Vor'cha-class, the Qib-class features the same basic outline, but has additional thin, blade-like shapes on the head and nacelles which give it a more aggressive look, as well as long, tapering, angled shapes that evoke more agility and maneuverability

While the ship doesn't have many customization options, the player can choose between three different wing layout options (Alpha, Beta, Gamma) - vertically placed wings, slightly swung downward and slightly swung forward.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Universal Consoles[edit | edit source]

The Qib Intel Battlecruiser comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Weapon Systems Siphon].

Specialization Seating[edit | edit source]

The Qib Intel Battlecruiser features two specialist seats:

  • Commander Engineering/Intelligence Commander Engineering/Intelligence
  • Lieutenant Science/Intelligence Lieutenant Science/Intelligence

Active Sensor Arrays

As an Intelligence starship, the Qib Intel Battlecruiser is capable of deploying an Intel sensor drone with the Gather Intelligence ability.

While the target is Vulnerable, one of three Expose Vulnerability abilities can be used. These powerful abilities find a critical weakness in the targeted foe and allow players to briefly exploit it.

Intelligence vessels also have a built-in passive ability which renders them undetectable at long range.

Battle Cloak

The Qib Intel Battlecruiser has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.

Cruiser Commands[edit | edit source]

As an Intel Cruiser, this ship supports the following cruiser commands:

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 1 3 0 2 2
10-19 2 3 1 3 2
20-29 2 4 1 3 3
30-39 3 4 2 4 4
40+ 3 5 2

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 (1.25 for the Qib Intel Battlecruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
