New Klingon Ships!
The new Klingon ships will be available in game and in the C-store:
Varanus Fleet Support Vessel
Gorn-designed Science Vessel with integrated subsystem targeting.
3 fore, 3 aft weapon slots.
Lt. Tactical, Ens. Engineering, Lt. Engineering, Lt. Cmd. Science, and Cmd. Science officer seats.
2 Tactical, 2 Engineering, and 4 Science console slots.
Special ability: This ship can launch up to 5 Repair Platforms that will deploy drones to assist itself or allied ships.
Each repair platform can only spawn 2 repair drones. So a full complement of repair platforms can provide healing drones for every member of the team.
If your drones get destroyed you can fly back to the platform and get more.
4 fore, 4 aft weapon slots.
Lt. Tactical, Lt. Cmd. Engineering, Cmd. Engineering, Ens. Science, and Lt. Science officer seats.
2 Tactical, 4 Engineering, and 2 Science console slots.
Crew: 1200 (from 800)
Special ability: The player is able to deploy a wing of Orion Interceptor Fighters through a click ability. These fighters drop mines, disable subsystems, and capture crew from enemy ships.
Known Issue: The Icon for this special ability is currently a plain white icon. It will be fixed soon.
B’rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit
4 fore, 2 aft weapon slots.
2 Lt. Universal, 1 Lt. Cmd. Universal, 1 Cmd. Universal officer seats.
3 Tactical, 3 Engineering, 2 Science console slots.
Special ability: Enhanced Battle Cloak. This ship can use mines and torpedoes while remaining cloaked, as well as most Bridge Officer and Captain abilities.
Cardassian and Dominion fleets have added the Cardassian Hideki Frigate and the Dominion Heavy Escort to their roster.
Federation and Mirror Universe Federation fleets have added the Peregrine Fighter to their roster.
Information for the new Klingon ships has been added to the database in Qo’noS.
Lieutenant Marrien now has eyes.
Added improvements to game stability.
Audio has been updated for "Fire at Will" and "Beam Overload" when using Original Series-era ship phasers.
Skills and Abilities
The Bridge Officer ability, Photonic Officer, now has Klingon or Starfleet-specific audio when used.
Fire at Will, Mines, Tricobalt Device, and High Yield Plasma Torpedo no longer "misfire."
Fixed an issue causing Turret ship weapons to drain energy for a little longer than expected, causing players to drain too much power when firing multiple turrets in succession.
All player Captain skills now display messages to include the names of the ships they modify.
The Vor’cha retrofit now uses the Battle Cruiser Retrofit skill.
Updated the Klingon skill tree at the General tier with new and altered captain skills.
Brigadier Generals and higher will get a respec token to account for the skill changes.
Negh’Var Battle Cruiser Captain has become Heavy Battle Cruiser Captain to support a broader range of ships.
Added Battle Cruiser Captain Retrofit.
Added Patrol Cruiser Captain.
Hegh’ta Bird of Prey Captain has become Heavy Raider Captain to support a broader range of ships.

Qin Raptor Captain has become Heavy Raptor Captain to support a broader range of ships.
Vo’Quv Carrier Captain has become Carrier Captain to support both the Vo’Quv and Kar’Fi.
Kar’Fi Battle Carrier Captain has become Fleet Support Captain to support a different ship type. The conversion from Kar’Fi to the unrelated Fleet Support was needed to properly handle a skill point respec.
Certain dead Cardassians can no longer be healed by players.
Everything Old is New Again
