Background
D12 bop


The Klingon Bird-of-Prey was a type of warship utilized by the Klingon Empire serving the Klingon Defense Forces from the late 23rd century into the late 24th century.

This type of craft, initially descended from its counterpart from a century earlier, was one of the most versatile warships employed by the Empire, serving a variety of mission roles, including that of a scout, raider, patrol ship, and cruiser.

The D-12 class, was a medium cruiser version of the bird of prey style. It was armed with apair of forward and a pair of rear firing disruptor cannons along with a pair of photon torpedo launchers, one forward firing and one rear firing. The class served early to mid 24th century but was retired from service to a plasma coil defects that casued many issues with their cloaking devices. Some ships remained in service however in a reserve roll.


Affiliation: Klingon Empire

Class: D-12 Bird Of Prey

Manufacturer: Klingon Empire

Crew: 85 + up to 325 passengers

Passengers: upto an additional 1,500 can be accomodated in an emergency


MDC BY LOCATION:


(1) Main Hull 28,000

(1B) Bridge Pod 2,900

(2) Main Sensor/Communications Array 2,600

Lateral Sensor Arrays (40) 300 ea

(4) Impulse Engine/Warp (1) 4,800 ea

Small Guidance thrusters (many) 100 ea

Small Airlocks/Access Hatches(6) 60 ea

Large Airlocks (1) 450 ea

Outer Hull (per 40 ft area) 75

Interior walls (per 20 ft area) 30

Photon Torpedo Launchers (2) 650 ea

Mk 9 Disruptor Cannons (2) 1,700 ea

(5) Shields 8,000 per side (48,000 total)

AR - 1

Armour - Stops Type V Phasers and Mk 5 Disruptors.


NOTES:

1 - Depleting the MDC of the Main Hull will put the ship out of commission. All internal systems will shut down, including life support and internal gravity.

1B - Destroying hte Bridge will automatically switch control to main engineering in the engineering section. ONce control is established in the battle bridge efficiency of the vessel will only be affected as follows, -5 to all combat rolls and attacks per melee are halved.

2 - Destroying the sensor will deprive the ship of all forms of long range communications, radar and targeting. The range and targeting capabilities of the secondary systems are equal to that of a shuttlecraft at best. The ship can still operate, but is at -3 on initiative, -3 to strike, and number of attacks per melee of the weapon systems are reduced by half.

4 - Depleting the MDC of the the warp nacelles will force the ship to rely on its Impulse engines. Depleting the MDC of the main engines AND secondary engines will leave the ship adrift in space with very minimal movement allowed by its docking thrusters. If in an atmosphere, the ship will crash.

5 - Shields regenerate at 60 mdc per melee. Only if a generator is damaged will the ability for shields to regenerate be hampered
