The IKS Bortas, also known as the IKS Revenge, was a D7-class, specifically of the K't'inga-class, Klingon battle cruiser starship in Imperial Klingon Defense Force service in the 23rd century, operational in the 2280s and commanded by Kor.
Service historyEditIn 2289, Revenge and T'Cel's ChR Phoenix joined forces with James T. Kirk's USS Enterprise-A to plan a clandestine operation to expose the "Critters". The Critters were a race which had surreptitiously attacked ships from the Klingon Empire, Federation, Romulan Star Empire, Gorn Hegemony, and First Federation in a sector near the Romulan Neutral Zone throughout the 23rd century. Kor insisted that Revenge play the role of Trojan horse bait to attract the Critters. He was intent on regaining honor for his QuchHa' people, who were disgraced when a Klingon Dreadnought class vessel was lost to the Critters in 2273.
Starfleet lieutenant Jamie Finney was challenged by officer Khadri and won. Kor insisted that Finney rightly assume Khadri's position aboard the Revenge, and she accepted. She fought alongside Kor's crew during their engagement with the Critters.
