If you’ve ever wanted to know how to keep your Klingon Bird of Prey ship in working order, a Haynes manual for the Star Trek vehicle will hit bookshelves in November.

Star Trek UK licensing representative CPLG announced that CBS Consumer Products and Haynes Publishing had struck the deal for the book, following the success of 2010’s U.S.S. Enterprise Owners’ Workshop Manual. This recently launched in China.

The new Bird of Prey manual will follow a similar format, with cutaways, CGI renders and other diagrams that detail key technologies such as the cloaking device.

Iain Wakefield, Brand Licensing Manager at Haynes, said: “We are very excited to be launching this new manual, and with the fabulous success of the Haynes Enterprise Manual, we expect the Klingon Bird of Prey version to be equally popular.”

Liz Kalodner, Executive VP and General Manager of CBS Consumer Products, added: “We’re always looking for ways to bring Star Trek fans exciting new products. The manual will give fans the opportunity to explore the intricate details of the Klingon Bird of Prey.”
