What's the secret to this? I've tried it three times now and failed every time. There's just not enough time to pillage three ships before they warp with at least two Fed ships coming to interrupt you. I'm getting a little annoyed.

Okay a few things.

1: You cannot loot eh freighters whilst you arte being shot at so dont bother trying as soon as the escort ships appear destroy them as quick as possible.

2: Do you have any disabling powers at all? Eject Warp Plasma can bring the transports to a grinding halt as can a tractor beam or a gravity well.

3: I don't want to be rude but your DPS is obviously low. Have a hunt around and see what you can do to improve that. Average DPS players can achieve the optional which is 5 transports.

DPS:
- Is your equipmet of the highest mark available to you?
- Are you using tac consoles to improve your principle damage type?
- Have you arranged you weapons so you can bring all of the to bear on target?
- Broadside attacks for beam arrays
- Frontal attacks for dual cannon/dual beam with turrets in aft slots

The trick is cloaking, then fly way, way around to the top of the map where the last beacon is. You will get a message about Starfleet calling in reinforcements once you reach the spot.

At that point the freighters will begin moving towards you. If you time it right and are in a good position the fed ship will be out of range and wont attack you. You can pick off and loot the freighters without interference as they head towards you.

If you go in too far you might have to fight one fed ship but that's not too hard to do and still loot 5 freighters. After you're done you can go back towards where you came in and destroy the other fed ship.

Lastly, all Sorties were designed for tactical ships so make sure you bring high DPS weapons like cannons. And any abilities that slows ships down helps too.

You can also always ask for support. Me is running the Sortis each day, looking for some fellows to come along. If you want, you can PM me about this ingame.

What mission/story on the KDF side is this about? I don't remember any Fed Transport attacks when I was grinding my klink.

Here's what I do. Jam sensors on the escort & don't shoot at it. this gives you enough time to loot a freighter.

You may also want to try cloaking, going to the front of the convoy, and disabling the forward freighters first. I did that a lot to buy time when doing this on toons that didn't have the capability to hinder ship movement.

They are the best patrols in game. Originally added when KDF crafting went live as a more "Klingon" way to obtain crafting materials... Raid Federation supply lines and commandeer their goods for use within The Empire!

Look for Pi Canis Sortie Alpha, Pi Canis Sortie Bravo, and Path of the Warrior in your mission list. Each Sortie has optional objectives. If you complete all the optionals, Path of the Warrior will complete for extra XP and even Dilithium (for general ranks). The Sorties can be done every 30 min and Path of the Warrior daily.

Indeed. Before I unlocked Klingon I expected the same type of extra-curricular activities as Fed, but instead I get to raid and pillage, as Kahless intended.
