Star Trek Online welcomes two brand-new ships, the New Orleans class, updated in 25th century to the Lafayette Class, and the Klingon Empire’s Ketha-class Recon Raptor! They will soon be available for purchase at the C-store, individually and as a bundle!
In this perilous times, reconnaissance and exploration is a difficult task; the Lafayette-class Recon Destroyer is designed to be a vessel dedicated to information gathering and scientific study but with an armored hand ready to deliver a rather nasty punch! Not as tough as a cruiser or as swift as an escort ship, it can mount heavy canons and an experimental weapon, and comes equipped with the powerful Hyper-Focusing Trinary Arrays console.
The ship’s design is a combination of the Andromeda and the Galaxy class; the first was used as a base while the latter contributed the longer pylons, longer nacelles, and the signature mission pods.
The Ketha-class Recon Raptor is the Klingon counterpart to the Lafayette-class Recon Destroyer and a fierce addition to the Imperial Fleet. It’s a powerful adversary that can cloak, mount dual canons and an experimental weapon and is fitted with the Hyper-Focusing Trinary Arrays console.
The classic Raptor class design is used here with additions like the signature pods, also found in the Lafayette class ships, a large section of negative space and a new placement for the traditional Klingon piping which gave the starship a distinct new look when compared to other Raptor designs.
