Agreed. I HATE when writers use the term "warbird" or "raptor" or even, yes, "bird of prey" to refer to Klingon vessels. These are Rom descriptors! Kagga's crown, they're the ones who paint their ships like giant khest'n birds!!!
After the Dominion War, the Klingon Empire embarked on an aggressive period of starship design and construction to replace ships lost during the war and subsequent conflicts.
Facing the increasing demands of Chancellor Martok and the Klingon High Council to create more ships in less time, the design teams at the shipyards of Ty'Gokor looked to the past for inspiration for new ships for the Empire.
how come they always leave out how many crew member's its ment to take to run the ship's ....
I would like to know please so I can do an acurate RP using this ship ...thank you to anyone that know's appreciate it .
It ain't Klingon if it doesn't have the evil eye (torpedo launcher on the front). I'm glad this does. I can't tell whether its meant to be in the 'formidable' or 'weaksauce' category. Class 6 cloaking device? Pfft, my cat has a class 6 cloaking device.
As far as I'm concerned this is the Earthling translation of the ship class. toQ is the Klingon word for 'bird of prey'. And if you're worried it clashes with the B'rel Bird of Prey, well, the Klingons refer to the B'rel as bI'rel. So, no worries.
