Class Description

A Negh'Var Class vessel at warp

The Negh’Var-class warship was the pinnacle of Klingon design where machines of war were concerned. By far the largest and most heavily armed vessel to data in the Klingon inventory, the Negh’Var found use as a capital ship almost from the beginning. While the Negh’Var shares many of the same design principles that nearly all of the vessel’s predecessors were developed from, the sheer size and several minor aesthetic and design modifications place the Negh’Var in a class all her own. True in form, the Negh’Var takes cues from the ‘avian’ design theme, featuring the forward mounted bridge and long connecting ‘neck’ that flares out into the main body of the craft. One item of note is the complete integration of the nacelles into the ‘wings’ of the vessel. Additionally, a long ‘spike’ stretches for several feet behind the outer edge of the wing, its purpose known only to the original designers. It is, however, speculated that this was merely a design aesthetic that never made it to the cutting board.

The first of the Negh’Var-class was seen in early to mid-2371, when it displaced the Vor’cha-class attack cruiser as the primary capital ship as well as the flag ship for many of the ruling members of the Klingon High Council, including the Chancellor himself. One such notable vessel, the IKS Negh’Var, participated in several of the more famous conflicts in the Empire’s history. This included the invasion of the Cardassian Union by Klingon forces in the beginning of 2372, as well as several major engagements during the Dominion War era; most notable among them was her participation in the First Battle of Deep Space Nine.

Given the extremely high cost, even after nearly a decade and a half of developmental practice, the Negh’var remains a much more rare sight in the armadas of the Klingon Defense Force than most other vessels. While this does limit in some ways their inherent utility with respect to more cost effective vessels such as the K’Vort and the Vor’cha-class, the sheer battle power even one of these vessels can add to any engaging Klingon battle group makes the Negh’Var a continued force to be feared and respected by any who cross her path.
