The IKS Krim (IKC-1050) was a Klingon starship, a Tajtiq-class fighter/bird-of-prey in QuchHa' service in the 2150s and 2160s decades. The Krim was under the command of Captain Laneth. (ENT episode: "Affliction", ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: Live by the Code)
In November 2154, Laneth and her crew were augmented by an experimental strain of what would become the Qu'Vat virus. Soon after, the Krim attacked the Earth Starfleet vessel Enterprise, which investigated the abduction of Doctor Phlox from the wreck of a Rigelian freighter. Despite being smaller, the Krim was a match for the NX-class starship. A boarding party sabotaged Enterprise so that its destruction would appear as an accident. The Humans captured Marab, son of K'Vagh, but the rest of the party escaped. Believing their mission successful, Laneth brought the Krim back to Qu'Vat colony to report to K'Vagh. (ENT episode: "Affliction")
In 2165, Laneth commanded the Krim in the battle to defend the QuchHa' colony on Mempa VII from extermination by the Klingon HemQuch forces of Borel and Ja'rod, son of Duras. By then, the small bird-of-prey had a crew of six. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: Live by the Code)
