D-7 Battle Cruiser
|Date Entered Service:||
The D-7 Class battle cruiser was introduced into the Klingon Imperial Fleet in 2249 and quickly became the backbone of the fleet throughout the 2250s and 2260s. Ships of this class were heavily armed and were equipped with strong shields making them the equal of the Constitution Class ships fielded by Starfleet and during the short Klingon-Federation war in 2256 ships of the D-7 class made up the bulk of the front line of the Klingon fleet.
In 2268 the Klingon Empire and Romulan Star Empire entered into an agreement were the Klingons got access to the new cloaking device created by The Romulan Star Empire who received a handful of D-7 battle cruisers in return.
At the start of the 2270s the ship designers of the Empire introduced the K'T'Inga class building off the success of the now ageing D-7s and by 2278 the last of the D-7s were decommissioned. All except for one. This last hold out was encountered by the USS Voyager while in the Delta Quadrant.
