After the Dominion War, the Klingon Empire embarked on an aggressive period of starship design and construction to replace ships lost during the war and subsequent conflicts.
Facing the increasing demands of Chancellor Martok and the Klingon High Council to create more ships in less time, the design teams at the shipyards of Ty'Gokor looked to the past for inspiration for new ships for the Empire.
When asked, Kurak retorted that this was not a failing of the Raptor class, rather it was a reflection of the Klingon warrior ideal to fight with honor, to strive for success and, if necessary, to die in glorious battle. "Klingon warriors do not need healers to lick their wounds. Klingon warriors fight only one way – to the death."
I love this bit, tip of the hat to who ever wrote it.
Very nice. I look forward to taking this fine ship into battle against the Federation and Romulan petaQ!
I also like how nicely Keith R.A. DeCandido's character "Kurak" has a part in this design. I hope this also means the Chancellor class or its refit will be a part of the klingon Defense Force.
