No matter how many new forms of the Bird of Prey the Klingon Empire might produce, or how many technological leaps they make, they keep coming back to the B'rel class. You simply cannot improve on perfection. The Legendary B'rel Pilot Bird-of-Prey is the latest and most powerful B'rel. It marries the classic asthetics of the B'rel with the most modern of KDF technology, and an eye on the systems that worked the best for this class in the past.
Purchasing the Legendary B'rel Pilot Bird-of-Prey for 25,000 unlocks all existing ship variants.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free|
The B'rel class has some interesting design features. The ship's wings have a feathered wing pattern. The main hull has a dual ridged dorsal section with a neck leading off to the bridge. Like all Birds-of-Prey, the vessel's wings are ordinarily in upward position, and only move down when entering combat.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free|
The Koloth class follows a very similar design including the iconic feathered pattern on the wings. The ship has a larger engine assembly and the tips of the wings fold outward rather than down.
|SKIN UNLOCK: B'Rotlh Bird-of-Prey, 15,000 |
The B'Rotlh class is a modern variant of the classic B'rel design, featuring a lower-pitched head section, a beefed up engineering section and wings that fold forward more than the original. The ship also features larger wing-mounted disruptor cannons.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Kor Bird-of-Prey, 3,000 |
The Kor-class Bird-of-Prey is based on the famed B'rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit's original design, however it has been heavily modified to be better suited for battle against the Klingon Empire's current foes.

The Vo’n’talk-class Bird of Prey patrolled the Empire’s borders in the latter half of the 22nd Century. Bristling with weapons and sporting powerful engines for its time, the Vo’n’talk was a fearsome predator and its crews would often enjoy impressive bounties from campaigns of piracy and looting in the unaligned systems that neighbored the Klingon Empire during its heyday.

Enhanced Battle Cloak
The Legendary B'rel-class Pilot Bird-of-Prey has an enhanced battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking. The enhanced cloak also allows the use of mines, torpedoes, and most Bridge Officer and Captain abilities while remaining cloaked.
Frigates, Light Escorts, Raiders, and Scout Ships come with a built-in passive damage boost available when striking an enemy's rear arc. To support their high turn rate and maneuverability, standard raider flanking grants:
- +33% damage to NPC enemy when attacking rear arc.
- +11% damage to Player enemy when attacking rear arc.
Pilot ships can perform a sudden maneuver in each horizontal direction: Forward, Backward, Left or Right. Executing each maneuver will rapidly reposition your starship while granting very brief damage immunity, but costs all available thruster fuel which takes several seconds to recover.
The Legendary B'rel-class Pilot Bird-of-Prey features the following specialist seats:
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 (.95 for the Legendary B'rel-class Pilot Bird-of-Prey), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.

By using an [Experimental Ship Upgrade Token], the Legendary B'rel-class Pilot Bird-of-Prey may be upgraded to T6-X, unlocking an extra ship device slot, universal console slot, and the ability to slot an extra starship trait.
