The K'vort-class (or K'Vort-class) was a type of Klingon Bird-of-Prey light cruiser starship in Imperial Defense Force service in the 24th century. (TNG episode: "Yesterday's Enterprise"; Decipher RPG module: Starships)

The K'Vort was similarly used as a patrol and pursuit craft in the mirror universe, by the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance. By the 2370s, the K'Vort was one of the most common and expendable vessels in Regent Worf's fleet. (DS9 episodes: "Shattered Mirror", "The Emperor's New Cloak"; CCG set: Mirror, Mirror)

History[edit | edit source]

The K'vort-class was developed out of the highly successful B'rel-class, and is essentially just a much larger version of the same design. (ST reference: Starship Spotter)

Despite its success, the class began to fall into obscurity towards the end of the 24th century following the introduction of more advanced cruisers such as the Vor'cha-class.

Features[edit | edit source]

The K'vort-class is fitted with 4 disruptor cannons, 2 photon torpedo launchers and a cloaking device.
