To me, the iconic Klingon is the D-7. That hull style (pod, neck, flared out "wingy" main body w' nacelles on ends, and deckhouse) just screams "Klingon" to me, whether it's the classic TOS version, the TMP K'tinga, or the TNG-itized Vor'cha, much as saucer (arrowhead), neck, secondary hull, pylons, nacelles = Enterprise.
However, since the BOP went Klingon in ST III, it's the most reused Klingon ship, and therefore the one the majority of people would most likely recognize as Klingon. Heck, it was a BOP that ended the careers of two Enterprises (Kirk's in ST III, Picards in Generations). Sadly, I'd have to recognize the BOP as the "most iconic" Klingon ship...
Well, with the upgrade announcement leaving NX and Connie fans in the dust
, can we restart / revisit the T5 Connie and NX threads - since they will no longer be "truly" endgame ships... (after we get the T5 versions, it'll be time to see them added to the T5U upgrade charts too...
