The [[K'Vort class|K’Vort-class Bird-of-Prey]] takes the majority of its design cues from the old D12-class and [[B'rel class|B’rel-class]] vessels of the same type. The design principle behind the Bird-of-Prey is the closest to a truly ‘avian’ design that the [[Klingon Empire]] has constructed, featuring a clearly defined ‘head’, ‘neck’, ‘body’, and ‘wings’ that are indicative of most avian creatures throughout the galaxy. The designers of the Bird-of-Prey series of vessels even took great care in incorporating hull ‘feathers’ into the ‘wings’ to further accentuate the avian feel of the craft. This is one of the few instances in which aesthetics played any sort of a role in Klingon ship construction.

The [[K'T'Inga class|K't'inga-class]] battle cruiser is one of the oldest, most easily recognizable designs in the history of both the [[Alpha Quadrant|Alpha]] and [[Beta Quadrant|Beta Quadrants]]. The general design of the Klingon battle cruiser has remained the same for over seven hundred years. Although the general design has remained the same, the Klingon battle cruiser has evolved both internally, cosmetically, and externally to include the latest in Klingon design. The current evolution, the K't'inga-class, was first introduced into the Klingon fleet in the 2270s as the successor to the D7-class battlecruiser.
  
As with many Klingon vessels, the bulk of the K’Vort-class vessel is situated in the aft ‘body’ of the craft. Also, mirroring other designs, the bridge is a separate section connected to the main body by a long, thin ‘neck’. The ship’s ‘wings’ are the most unusual feature on the K’Vort-class, as well as all the other Bird-of-Prey style vessels. Depending on which flight mode the vessel is operating in (cruise, warp flight, and combat), the vessel’s wings would raise and lower. While it is somewhat conjectural as to whether this modification of the standard fixed wing design is overly practical, but it is agreed upon that the modification does accentuate the Bird-of-Prey theme on which the class was designed.

With the evolution of nearly every ship-based technology in the Klingon fleet within the twenty years prior the D7 had become nearly obsolete. While the general design of the battle cruiser was still favored as it had been for centuries, it was decided to simply revamp the general design into the K't'inga. Internally it was entirely a new warship, but the most noticable changes were externally. The K't'inga-class received completely new nacelle designs, new hull markings, and a slightly different "head" configuration.
  
The K’Vort-class vessel was first seen being placed into service in the early 2350s, with the first officially designated K’Vort being commissioned in 2354. Much the same as other vessels in the Klingon Fleet, the K’Vort has become a staple in the inventory, remaining a front-line vessel even after the introduction of larger, more heavily armed capital ships such as the [[Vor'cha class|Vor’cha]] and the [[Negh'Var class|Negh’Var]]. While normally relegated to the role of patrol vessel, it still finds itself in the role of squadron lead when grouped with its smaller B’rel-class counterparts, confirming its place as a command vessel even with the advent of ships specifically intended to replace it.

The K't'inga-class battle cruisers were heavily fielded during the [[ma:Federation-Klingon War (2372-73)|Second Federation-Klingon War]] and [[Dominion War]] but fared quite poorly to their newer [[Vor'cha class|Vor'cha-class attack cruiser]] counterparts. They are now considered as second line units, and are generally to be found patrolling friendly borders such as that with the Federation, general exploration, or acting in support of the Vor'cha-class attack cruiser.
 
 
Since the K’Vort-class’ introduction, it has served in several major confrontations in the service of the Klingon Empire. Most notably among the conflicts were the Cardassian War, the Klingon Civil War, the short lived Federation-Klingon War, and the [[Dominion War]]. While not the most heavily armed or armored vessel in the [[Klingon Defense Force]], its speed, maneuverability and utility have secured this class’ place in the fighting force for centuries to come.

Class Description

The K't'inga-class battle cruiser is one of the oldest, most easily recognizable designs in the history of both the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. The general design of the Klingon battle cruiser has remained the same for over seven hundred years. Although the general design has remained the same, the Klingon battle cruiser has evolved both internally, cosmetically, and externally to include the latest in Klingon design. The current evolution, the K't'inga-class, was first introduced into the Klingon fleet in the 2270s as the successor to the D7-class battlecruiser.

With the evolution of nearly every ship-based technology in the Klingon fleet within the twenty years prior the D7 had become nearly obsolete. While the general design of the battle cruiser was still favored as it had been for centuries, it was decided to simply revamp the general design into the K't'inga. Internally it was entirely a new warship, but the most noticable changes were externally. The K't'inga-class received completely new nacelle designs, new hull markings, and a slightly different "head" configuration.

In 2271 a large energy cloud named V'Ger was discovered penetrating into Klingon space. A wing of three K't'inga-class battle cruisers were dispatched to investigate, but as soon as they intercepted the cloud all three were destroyed. The K't'ingas have continued in service to the present day, having received the normal upgrades and refits over the years. The K't'inga-class battle cruisers were heavily fielded during the Second Federation-Klingon War and Dominion War but fared quite poorly to their newer Vor'cha-class attack cruiser counterparts. They are now considered as second line units, and are generally to be found patrolling friendly borders such as that with the Federation, general exploration, or acting in support of the Vor'cha-class attack cruiser.
