Klingon Vor'Cha Heavy Cruiser

Summary:

THE VOR'CHA (DESIGNATED AS EMPIRE CLASS BY STAR FLEET) HEAVY CRUISER WAS DESIGNED TO REPLACE THE AGING K'T'INGA CLASS BATTLECRUISER WHICH HAD BEEN IN USE FOR OVER SEVENTY YEARS. DURING THAT TIME FRAME THERE WAS LITTLE DEMAND FOR HEAVY CRUISERS DUE TO A COMBINATION OF FEW MAJOR INTERSTELLAR CONFLICTS AND THE KLINGON HIGH COMMAND'S PREFERENCE FOR SMALLER ATTACK CORVETTE'S AND PACKS OF BIRD-OF-PREY VESSELS. DURING THE PERIOD FROM 8725.0 THROUGH 37218.2 THE PRIMARY ROLES PLAYED BY HEAVY CRUISERS WERE AS DIPLOMATIC CURRIERS AND CEREMONIAL FUNCTIONS. IT WAS DURING THE ROMULAN ATTACKS ON THE KLINGON BORDER COLONIES ALONG THE NEUTRAL ZONE THAT THE HIGH COUNCIL DECIDED THAT HEAVY CRUISERS WOULD BE NEEDED TO COUNTER THE GROWING ROMULAN THREAT.

THE KLINGON/FEDERATION TREATY NEGOTIATIONS OF 42896.3 WERE HELD ABOARD THE KLiNGON HEAVY CRUISER "ALLIANCE" AND PROVIDED THE FEDERATION WITH IT'S FIRST CLOSE LOOK AT THIS FORMIDABLE VESSEL.
