The Qin-class Heavy Raptor is the spearhead that pierces its enemy's heart.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free|
The Birok-class Raptor is considerably bulkier than the Qin-class model, and shows clear design influences from Gorn and Orion sources: for example, ship's nacelles (especially the secondary ones) are highly reminiscent of standard Gorn nacelles.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free|
The Qin class lacks red nacelles, has considerably smaller wings and the much smaller neck stem due to the enlarged forward hull. Overall structure is vaguely reminiscent of early Andorian Kumari Escorts due to the design of the wings, as well as the forward hull being dwarfed by the forward command module.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Qa'Tel Flight Deck Raptor, 3,000 |
Inspired by Starfleet's Armitage class and Republic's Ar'kif class, the Qa'Tel class, unlike its Qin-class predecessor, is capable of deploying a wing of fighters. Larger than the Qin, Qa'Tel sports a bulked up version of the Birok's "head" section, thicker "neck" with additional windows and large red nacelles.
The Qin Heavy Raptor doesn't come equipped with any universal consoles.
However, it can equip [Console - Universal - Destabilized Tachyon Emitters] obtainable with the Qa'Tel Flight Deck Raptor (T6).
The Qin-class Heavy Raptor has a cloak that allows the ship to cloak when not in combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
The Qin-class Heavy 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.

- The class name "Qin" appears to be a misspelling of the tlhIngan Hol word "QIn", meaning "sharp end" (e.g. of a spear), defined in Klingon for the Galactic Traveler by Marc Okrand.
