Star Trek: Klingon Bird-Of-Prey Haynes Manualby Ben Robinson
Synopses & Reviews
The Bird-of-Prey is the classic Klingon starship—a tough raiding and scouting vessel that has served at the heart of the Klingon Defense Force for more than a hundred years. Life on board is harsh and brutal, with any sign of weakness leading to a challenge to the death. The ship itself is stripped back and lean, with everything designed for a single purpose—war.
This Haynes Manual traces the origins of a Bird-of-Prey from the moment it is commissioned by one of the Great Houses and constructed at the shipyards of the Klingon Naval Academy. It then proceeds to examine General Martok’s famous ship the I.K.S. Rotarran in unprecedented detail.
Featuring a stunning cutaway drawing and, for the first time ever, detailed deck plans and incredible new computer-generated artwork, the Haynes Bird-of-Prey Manual is a technical tour of the ship’s systems, from the bridge and engineering rooms to the disruptors, torpedo launcher, and the all-important cloaking device. In addition, the Manual provides a unique insight into life on board a Klingon ship and the Rotarran’s glorious history in the Dominion War.
This Haynes Manual is fully authorized by CBS. All the new artwork has been designed by STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION and STAR TREK: VOYAGER’s senior illustrator Rick Sternbach, who is the world’s leading expert on STAR TREK technology, with CG renders produced by STAR TREK VFX artist Adam ‘Mojo’ Lebowitz.
An all-new Star Trek technical manual of the legendary Klingon Bird of Prey, presented in the world-renowned Haynes Manual format!
A follow-up to the wildly popular U.S.S. Enterprise Haynes Manual, this new book exposes the secrets of the Klingon Empire’s Bird of Prey vessel. After a brief introduction to Klingon warships and the iconic Bird of Prey, this manual then takes the light B’rel-class scout as its main subject, providing specific coverage of propulsion, weapons, armor and defensive systems, bridge and tactical stations, and crew facilities. A size comparison chart, in-depth descriptions of key technologies—including the all-important cloaking device—are described in detail and supported by brand new full-color artwork, line art, photographs, ship specifications, and historic notes.
