The Mirror Ki'tang-class Bird-of-Prey Retrofit is a Tier 5 (Level 40) Raider which may be flown by Klingon Defense Force characters and their allies, excluding Klingon Empire-aligned Romulan Republic characters. All 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.
Players can obtain this starship as a ultra rare drop from the [Infinity Lock Box]; it comes in an [Infinity Prize Pack - T5 Ship] choice package, which is bound to you until a ship is chosen. It can also drop from the older [Xindi-Amphibious Lock Box]. The boxed ship is not bound and so may be traded to other players or bought and sold on the Exchange for energy credits under the name [Special Requisition Pack - Mirror Universe Ki'tang Bird-of-Prey Retrofit].
The Tholian Assembly has been utilizing multi-dimensional phasing technology to penetrate the barriers of the space-time continuum, resulting in retrieval of technology, weapons, personnel and even entire starships, pulled from distant times and places. Ripples from their activity have caused uncontrolled temporal anomalies to appear up to several hundred light years from their source.
Daredevil profiteers from the Lobi Crystal Consortium have set up an intricate supply chain dedicated to seeking out these uncontrolled ripple anomalies, and exploiting them to retrieve goods that they can then sell to the highest bidders. Starfleet, Klingon Defense Force and Romulan Republic all have an obvious interest in these valuable time-displaced artifacts, for it may be that the fate of time itself will be in the hands of the faction that controls them.
One of the recovered starships is the Klingon Ki'tang-class Bird-of-Prey Retrofit, a Mirror Universe variant of the Empire's own low tier Bird-of-Prey.
Birds-of-Prey are small, fast and fill a variety of roles for the Empire. They can be used as scouts, raiders or patrol ships. They're vulnerable when cloaked, but their speed and maneuverability make them hard to hit. Also, the Bridge Officer spaces on a Bird-or-Prey are mostly universal, which makes them more versatile.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free|
The Ki'tang class has a very angular design and a much narrower wing-span than the lower tier Birds-of-Prey. The ship has a very-stripped down look, more reminiscent of the QulDun class than the Norgh-class Bird-of-Prey.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Ch'Tang Bird-of-Prey, 1,500 |
The Ch'Tang variant has a very staggered wingspan and foreign hull extremities, giving it a more insect look than previous Birds-of-Prey. This Bird-of-Prey design was clearly influenced by engineers of the factions allied to the Klingon Defense Force.
The Mirror Ki'tang-class Bird-of-Prey Retrofit has a battle cloak that allows the ship to cloak during combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
The Mirror Ki'tang-class Bird-of-Prey Retrofit 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.
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.
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.
