It featured the adventures of Klingon Captain Koth of the Vengeance, in conflict with alien races such as Humans, Romulans and Kinshaya and others, and trying to capture their ships. Koth was always triumphant, and each episode ended with him being asked who he was by those he had captured, and answering "I am Captain Koth. Koth of the Vengeance. And this ship is my prize." ("HoD Qotlh jIH. Qotlh BortaS. je Dujvam tevwI maj")
It often also featured Orion women on the captured ships, though they were played by Klingon women in green make-up.
Although Battlecruiser Vengeance ceased production in the 23rd century, it remained known in Klingon culture into the 24th century. As a child, G'joth used to play at being Koth with his friend Krom. (KE novel: A Burning House) In 2376, G'joth obtained a collection of Battlecruiser Vengeance recordings from Tarmeth following his death. (GKN novel: Enemy Territory) G'joth later gave copies of those recordings to Krom's son, Gurlk. (KE novel: A Burning House)
A number of Battlecruiser Vengeance novels were also produced. Ferengi trader Sekki had the entire run of these stories on a PADD, among other Klingon works. Upon discovering this, Starfleet security officer Ensign Altoss wondered aloud why anyone would read novels based on a serial drama. (ST novel: A Singular Destiny)
