===Scout model===
The ''B'Rel''-class is usually classified as a scout or fighter.  It is a small, agile and very light craft with a crew between 12 and 36.  The class was first encountered on screen during the [[Genesis device|Genesis Incident]], when Captain Kruge took his Bird of Prey deep into Federation space and destroyed the ''[[USS Grissom]]'' and ambushed and crippled the ''[[USS Enterprise]]''.  [[Pavel Chekov]] detected the Bird of Prey for a moment on the scanners before she cloaked and identified her as a "scout class vessel"  (''[[Star Trek III: The Search for Spock]]''). [[Sulu]] verified that the crew compliment of as about a dozen. The Bird of Prey in the movie novelization is described as a Klingon fighter.
