Klingon K'T'Inga Heavy Cruiser

Summary:

INTRODUCED IN THE EARLY 2270'S, THE K'T'INGA-CLASS CRUISER WAS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL WARSHIPS IN THE KLiNGON DEFENSE FORCES, EVEN SERVING AS A FLAGSHIP OF THE IMPERIAL FLEET FOR A TIME DURING THE 2290'S. K'T'INGA-CLASS CRUISERS WERE IN SERVICE AS EARLY AS 2272, WHEN THE EPSILON IX STATION RECORDED THE DESTRUCTION OF THREE K'T'INGA-CLASS VESSELS BY THE V'GER ENTITY. STARFLEET'S INTEREST IN THE K'T'INGA-CLASS CRUISER WAS SUCH THAT IN 2285, THE CLASS OF SHIP APPEARED IN THE KOBAYASHI MARU TRAINING SCENARIO AT STARFLEET ACADEMY.

FOR NEARLY A CENTURY, THE K'T'INGA-CLASS CRUISER PROVED TO BE A RUGGED, STURDY DESIGN THAT SAW CONTINUOUS USE. IN THAT ASPECT THEY WERE MUCH LIKE THEIR FEDERATION COUNTERPARTS THE EXCELSIOR AND MIRANDA-CLASS STARSHIPS, WHOSE USEFULNESS OUTLIVED CONTEMPORARIES SUCH AS THE CONSTITUTION-CLASS CRUISER. THE K'T'INGA-CLASS CRUISER WAS ONE OF THE MOST ADVANCED AND VERSATILE WARSHIPS IN THE KLINGON IMPERIAL FLEET, MORE THAN CAPABLE OF FACING AN EXCELSIOR-CLASS CRUISER IN A ONE-ON-ONE CONFRONTATION.

WITH MARKED IMPROVEMENTS, THESE WARSHIPS SAW CONTINUOUS USE AS FRONT-LINE AND BORDER PATROL SHIPS THROUGHOUT THE SECOND KLiNGON-FEDERATION WAR AND THE DOMINION WAR OF THE EARLY-2370'S. THEY WERE NOT ALWAYS THE SHIP OF CHOICE FOR ALL MISSIONS, HOWEVER, AS MORE AGILE CRAFT LIKE THE KLINGON BIRD-OF-PREY WERE BETTER SUITED FOR SOME TASKS.
