Release date: January 26, 2021

The M'Chla-class Bird-of-Prey Refit is a Tier 6 Raider which may be flown by Klingon Defense Force characters, including Klingon Empire-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. The faction restrictions of this starship can be removed by having a level 65 KDF character or by purchasing the Cross Faction Flying unlock from the Zen Store. 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.

Players can obtain this starship as a limited-time reward for participating in the Klingon Recruitment event.

Overview[]

With the recent return of some House Mo'Kai warriors to the fold – previously lost to time and Aakar’s influence – Klingon engineers have gained a boon. Some of these warriors are engineers, who carry with them secrets of the ancient Klingon technology that guided the empire before the houses were united. They have combined this with the modern technology and ship design to make some startling breakthroughs, the first of which is the M’Chla Refit Bird of Prey. This ship, designed for new Klingon Recruits, is a breakthrough in technology that allows mass production on a scale the Klingon Empire had never before reached.

Class variants

Class Information
Ship Variant - KDF - M'Chla Pilot Raider (T6).png
M'Chla class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The M'Chla class, much like the ships of the era, establishes a clear design aesthetic which is carried over to modern Birds-of-Prey - elongated wings, a long neck with a beak-like head. Unlike other ships of its type, its wings are in a fixed position at all times.
Ship Variant - KDF - M'Chla Raider Refit (T6).png
M'Chla class Refit
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
A 25th century refitted version of the original M'Chla-class Bird-of-Prey. While keeping the overall shape the same, the Refit is much closer in design to the classic B'rel-class Bird-of-Prey, with a standard hull livery, dorsal mission pods and beak-shaped saucer section.

Abilities[]

Universal consoles[]

The M'Chla Bird-of-Prey Refit comes equipped with the [Console - Universal - Enhanced Induction Coils].

Enhanced Battle Cloak

The M'Chla-class Bird-of-Prey Refit 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.

Raider Flanking

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.

Standard configuration[]

These 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

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:

Hull strength[]

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 M'Chla-class Bird-of-Prey Refit), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
