Back in June, Michael Okuda posted a photo of a Klingon battle cruiser kitbash he did while working on Star Trek: The Next Generation. It was his proposal for the K'Vort-class featured in "Yesterday's Enterprise" (TNG 3x15). The Visual Effects folks decided to go with ILM's trusty Bird-of-Prey model and just ignore any scaling issues between a scout ship and battle cruiser.

Okuda's battlecruiser has a solid, rugged appearance that appeals to me. It is obviously based on a K't'inga-class model kit, but kitbashing has a long and proud history in sci-fi television and cinema. I plan to borrow the design to add a little variety to the Klingon fleet next time I run a Star Trek Adventures game. To that end, I was inspired to write up a nice, fluffy background to explain both its existence and why it was never seen in canon.
