D7 battlecruiser

D7-class cruiser.

A Klingon cruiser is a type of cruiser starship operated by the Klingon Empire and the Klingon Defense Force.

Over the course of history, Klingons have had many different types of cruiser vessels of various designs. Klingon cruisers were ships of the line with performance levels slightly below that of full-fledged battlecruisers, but hull designs such as the D7-class could be outfitted as either cruisers or battlecruisers. An early 23rd century bird-of-prey design, the Z'gavva-class, was classified as a cruiser. (FASA RPG module: Klingon Ship Recognition Manual)

Theta 116 surveyEdit

In the year 2365, a Klingon cruiser passed the Theta 116 star system and performed a sensor sweep. The Klingons detected spacecraft debris in orbit, and notified the Federation of the discovery, moving on in their course without further investigation. (TNG episode: "The Royale")
