"The writeup of the Vor'cha class is designed to be used after the Star Trek Six: The Undiscovered Country up to and including Star Trek: Next Generation episodes as well as during Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager Episodes.

The Vor'cha class cruiser is one of the most common ships in the Klingon fleet and is the Klingon equivalent of the Federation Excelsior class although construction was started later. While the ship class is slightly smaller than the Excelsior class, the ship has about the same firepower, defenses, and armor. The ship class is newer that the Federation Excelsior class but is older than the Federation Galaxy class. Unlike the Birds of Prey, these ships often act as heavy combatants. A unique feature of this ship is that it has facilities for diplomatic missions. Like most Klingon ships, the Vor'Cha class cruiser has a cloaking device.

The ship is well armored and has shields as powerful as those carried on the Excelsior class even though the Vor'cha class is slightly smaller. The ship has two impulse engines to give the ship a higher survivability…"

I like how a kligon ships that first shows up I'm mid series TNG has shields as powerful as a Excelsior class ship which is about 80 years old by TNG

Number of shields isn't the same as powerful shields.

It is not the number of shields,it is the damage absorbtion level of the shields.In the next gen/ds 9 era even a bird of prey,s or Ktinga,s shields can absorb 20 units of damage.

Is it cannon, the cannon I've read says even the nag'vah the most powerful kligon ship in the TNG era is still less powerful than a galaxy class.

What is your definition of canon?

I'm just curious because I don't remember any real number cited during the show, and most of the tech manuals only cover Federation vessels with any detail.

Klingon Negh Var from DS9,and its shields absorb 40 points of damage apiece.
