# 1 Regarding Klingons
02-02-2010, 09:42 PM
I have always been a big fan of star trek and esp. the klingons and their ships.

I played starfleet command and the best time i had playing that, was in either the K'Tinga and Bird of Prey ships.

I dont know a lot about this game, but is it possible to only play in one of these ships and not be forced to ''get a better ship'' to progress?

I have learned that you progress with your created character and that characters ship constantly gets better and better and bigger and bigger. Do i have the option to stay in one specific ship, for the whole time i play STO and not have a need to go up from like, scout, light cruiser, battlecruiser then dreadnought?

Not to say Vor'Cha, B'Rel etc etc are terrible ships but i really loved the klingons tactics of stalking prey in a cloaked bird of prey undetected, decloaking to blast the enemy with all available weapons before cloaking again to vanish from sight.

Actually, the Klingons have upgraded versions of the Bird of Prey at all tiers, so the little cloak-demon remains viable all the way into endgame. Still likely a good idea to pick up a new one at each promotion, though.

Upgraded versions of the bird of prey? Tiers? You mean like variants?

Something like, in SFC3 with the ''same'' ship you could get better and better weapons, shields, thrusters, armour, engines etc etc? But instead of buying a straight up weapon upgrade, its the same ship sort of, but like... has the ability to support weapon types or modules that the previous and older version of the same ship could not?

Right, something like that. Not actually sure about the stats of the improved BoPs (though they prolly get higher hull strength, more weapon and device slots, and the ability to mount better stuff), since I didn't do much with the Klingons, but you'll be able to play a bird of prey all the way into endgame without becoming obsolete, is my point.

About Teirs: there's five of them, and your starter ship is teir 1. Every ten levels, you get promoted a rank and get access to the next tier of ships. For the Feds, each tier includes a Cruiser, Escort and Science Vessel. For the Klingons, there's a Bird of Prey variant at each tier, and then various other sorts of ships that don't necessarily follow a linear class structure. The major advantage of the Bird of Preys is that they can cloak in combat, which is something no other ship class can do-- though all Klingon ships can cloak out of combat, so you've always got the option of using ambush tactics, even in a Neg'Vhar.

OMG that is awesome.

In every game i always play the supporting class/characters/aspects of the game. In the battlefield games i was always the medic trailing behind with my paddles, medic packs or support with my suppressive fire and ammo boxes. In ****, i was the cleric who kept others alive with my heals and buffs. In wow, i play a healer priest who excelled at healing others and buffing.

I never really liked the ''in your face'' styles of gameplay. In a battle, i would either play a science vessel, supporting my fleet or the bird of prey hit and ran attackers.

What i would love, is if i had the ability to always have a bird of prey, that excelled at staying cloaked most of the time until the time was right to decloak unload a fresh bucket a pain in one quick burst and then cloaking and escaping to recharge and prepare for the next attack.
