The chargh-class, also known as Chargh-class, was a Klingon starship class, a battleship in service to various Great Houses of the Klingon Empire in the 2250s decade. (DSC episode: "Battle at the Binary Stars", STO - Age of Discovery mission: "Battle at the Binary Stars")


The class name meant conquer in Klingonese. It was 773.6 meters long. (DSC reference: The Official Starships Collection size-chart partwork)

This was one of two related battleship classes, both variants of the same basic spaceframe. Besides the chargh, the other type was the Jach-class. The ship consisted of a miniscule primary hull with an impulse engine at its stern, flanked by a pair of enormous warp nacelles that held spikes and weapon ports. (DSC reference: The Official Starships Collection size-chart partwork)

The chargh was a battleship, armed with disruptor beam arrays and photon torpedo launchers. (STO - Mirror of Discovery mission: "Battle of the Binary Stars")

Service historyEdit

Ships of the class were employed by the Klingon Great Houses by 2256. (DSC episode: "Battle at the Binary Stars")

Ships of this class were also used by Klingons of the mirror universe around the same time. (STO - Mirror of Discovery mission: "Para Pacem")

Several vessels of this class fought in the war between the Federation and Klingon Empire, also known as Burnham's War, starting with the Battle of the Binary Stars in May 2256. (DSC episode: "Battle at the Binary Stars")

In late 2256, a pair of battleships of this class was part of an armada engaging the USS Gagarin, destroying the Shepard-class ship. (DSC episode: "Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum")

In 2257, a pair of bortaS bIr-class battleships were part of an armada gathering in the Sol system to attack Earth. The armada disengaged and returned to Klingon space when Chancellor L'Rell ended the war. (DSC episode: "Will You Take My Hand?")

In 2410, the temporal displacement of J'Ula and many of her forces of House of Mo'Kai from the Defense of Starbase 1 to present-day, the chargh class returned service. (STO - Age of Discovery mission: "Downfall")

Ships of the class, including from a 2256-era mirror universe, were involved with transtemporal events instigated by Sylvia Tilly at Pahvo. (STO - Mirror of Discovery missions: "Para Pacem", "Illusion of Communication", "Peril Over Pahvo")
