..would be laid out.

And no matter what I keep hitting pretty much the same lay out. The Starfleet faction has thier cruiser based Vesta.

Kdf version would be more of a light battle cruiser, almost a raptor.


so, right off if the Vesta has ia bunch of spiff basic systems so should the KDF soooooo............

The Tier-5 Technology Strike Cruiser (Klingon Science Ship)

Fighter Bay [sighs contenedly]
Mounts Cannon. [does happy Dance]
Sensor.A.
subsystem targetting
+10 power Aux
+5 power Weapons
Battle Cloak (yes Battle Cloak!) [yes battle cloak!]

Weapons 4 Forward, 2 Aft.
Turn Rate 15 (faster the battle cruiser, slower then most raptors, in there with Destroyers.)
Impulse Modifier 1.7

Crew 550
Hull 22,500 (fleet 25000? )
shields 1.35 (fleet 1.45 )

BOFF's
TAC - Lt
ENG - Lt
SCI - Cmdr
UNI - LtC
UNI - Ens (Fleet Lt)

Device slots x 3
Consoles Engineering 3
Science 4 (fleet 5)
Tactical 2

[there are 3 Vesta each with slightly differing console and bridge officer layouts, the same could be done here)

Warp Core ? (what ever is going to be standard for sci types)

Special Console... None.

SO, what we have is a ship as powerfull as starfleets Vesta but different in a Klingon way.
hull is slightly weaker, but with a frightening turn rate, and when you step on the gas she takes right off. The ship has the typical 2/3 firepower forward bias of Klingon ships which with the special effects availible to a well skilled science cptains should turn this particular ship into a nightmare for Starfleets multitude of Escort claasses. And packing some fighters along cant hurt that much of course.


I even have art work to go with this silly thing... I also don't want to make it uber powerfull either. No special Console comes with the ship. I figured Battle Cloak and a Hanger bay pretty much nixes a console to be fair. Power mods are not pure science, but then this is a KDF ship!

I'll see if I can scan my scetching sometime today and get it appended.

Let the happy old bug stomping commence, along with refinement toward enhancing each factions play experience!
