The baSro'-class was a Klingon starship class, a frigate bird of prey in Klingon Empire, and later Federation, service from the 2410s decade. The baSro'-class was an auxiliary vessel attached to the Durgath-class temporal heavy dreadnought battlecruiser. (STO - Season 12: Reckoning mission: "26 Century Dreadnought Stats!")
History and specificationsEdit
The baSro' class was launched at some point before the Battle of Procyon V, alongside the Federation Starfleet Cestus and Romulan Republic Craeul frigates. These frigates served as auxiliary vessels to their heavy dreadnought cruiser motherships. The baSro class resembled a futuristic version of the venerable B'rel-class bird of prey.
The baSro' class was powered by a warp core.
Due to the Temporal Cold War, this class became available to the Klingon Defense Force in the 25th century, where it was found aboard Durgath-class battlecruisers. In that era, ships of the class included four weapon slots. These were equipped with two disruptor beam arrays (fore and aft), a disruptor dual beam bank (fore) and one frontal quantum torpedo launcher. In addition, in-built abilities included the option to fire at will, "scratch the paint", fire a high-yield torpedo, and "channeled destruction". On frigates that were rated "advanced" and "elite", the weapon systems were the same but the abilities more effective in combat, and the additional ability to transfer emergency power to weapons was added.

The class was based on the experimental 24th century USS Altair design. This Federation Starfleet class entered production as Cestus-class, and was used as a heavy dreadnought cruiser auxiliary ship in the 26th century. Its Romulan and Klingon counterparts were the RRW Craeul and IKS baSro', respectively. Ships of these classes were pivotal in helping defeat the Sphere Builders during the war that culminated in the Battle of Procyon V.
