In these trying times, constant conflict and ever-present hostility have made exploration and reconnaissance at the edges of the frontier an even more dangerous endeavor than normal. The Recon Raptor has been designed in response to this galactic atmosphere, providing a distinct combat-focus to a ship that is otherwise dedicated to scientific study and intelligence gathering.
The Ketha-class Recon Raptor has been named after the home province of one of the Klingon Empire's modern heroes, General Martok. Despite being a Raptor, it has the Starship Mastery package of a Destroyer.

The Ketha-class Recon Raptor is the Klingon counterpart to the Lafayette-class Recon Destroyer and a fierce addition to the Imperial Fleet. Its design faithfully follows the rules set by previous Raptors, but also takes inspiration from Klingon designs seen on Star Trek: Discovery.

The Ketha-class Recon Raptor features the following specialist seats:
- Lieutenant Commander Universal/Intelligence
The Ketha-class Recon Raptor has a cloak that allows the ship to cloak when not in combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
The Ketha-class Recon Raptor 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.
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.
This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.
Equipment slots and seating
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, science console slots and available bridge officer (boff) abilities will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:
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 (0.9 for the Ketha-class Recon Raptor), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
|Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP||Level||Multiplier||Hull HP|
By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Ketha-class Recon Raptor may be upgraded to T6-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait.
Note that upgrading the Fleet Ketha Recon Raptor, the fleet version of the Ketha Recon Raptor, will not apply the upgrade to this starship.
