14KLINGON BIRD OF PREY FROM STAR TREK
One look at the Klingon Bird of Prey warship and you can’t help but think you best turn away and run as fast as you can. Or else open fire immediately. Because it, like just about anything Klingon, does not look friendly – especially when it has lowered its
wings, primed for attack, with weapons pointed forward, ahead of everything else.
Interestingly, when it was designed for Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, it was originally going to be a Romulan vehicle, and the feather designs remained on its wings as a result. Also because of this, it’s the first of many Klingon vessels to have a cloaking device. It went on to be a hugely popular design, appearing in five films and two TV series.
