The Klingon Bird Of Prey Manual

The book Klingon Bird of Prey - Owners' Workshop Manual is sometimes also called after its publisher's name as "Haynes Bird of Prey Manual". It's a book with many colored images describing technical issues about the Klingon spaceship "Rotarran" commanded by general Martok in Deep Space Nine. It has been written by Star Trek Designer Rick Sternbach and Ben Robinson.

It contains only one new Klingon word (petqaD), but all the titles are written in pIqaD and both the KLI and Marc Okrand have reviewed the Klingon parts(1).

All of the Klingon titles are displayed in a variation of pIqaD. The font itself looks a little unfamiliar, but one gets used to it quite quickly.
