The Klingon Bird-of-Prey is a small, agile frigate deployed by the Klingon Defense Force in a wide variety of combat scenarios. This extremely versatile starship excels in raids and hit-and-run encounters, due to its high maneuverability and cloaking device.

The appearance of the Bird-of-Prey depends on its level, though its armament and abilities remain the same.

  • When KDF players use the Fleet Support ability, a Bird-of-Prey has a chance to appear to aid them in battle.
  • The HoH'SuS-class Bird-of-Prey is typically deployed from Bortasqu' Dreadnought Battlecruisers, such as the I.K.S. Bortasqu'.
