Cryptic showed off a new Star Trek Online ship class overnight, namely the Klingon Raptor.
It’s a scout frigate with lots of guns and torpedoes, basically. From the update:
If the Raptor class ships have a weakness, it is that so much of the available space in the ships is taken up by weapons and shield generators that the limited medical facilities are ill-equipped to deal with large numbers of wounded crew. When asked, Kurak retorted that this was not a failing of the Raptor class, rather it was a reflection of the Klingon warrior ideal to fight with honor, to strive for success and, if necessary, to die in glorious battle. “Klingon warriors do not need healers to lick their wounds. Klingon warriors fight only one way – to the death.”
The MMO’s out next year.
