The D'Gavama-class (known in translation from Klingonaase, literally, as the Bird of Prey-class, alphanumeric designation K22A-class) was a Klingon class V bird of prey scout starship in Imperial Defense Force service in the 23rd century, becoming active on reference stardate 2/1805.

2/1805 is thirteen months after the events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and so would roughly correspond to 2274 on the standard timeline.

The K22A was created by the refit of stripped down Romulan S11-class starship hulls delivered to the Klingons in the late 23rd century as part of the short-lived Klingon-Romulan Alliance, and was among the earliest Klingon uses of the cloaking device, although the device was unreliable; radiation emissions from this model were known to cause mental aberrations in bird-of-prey crews. This early Klingon use of a Romulan starship hull showed numerous design influences of both species' shipbuilders, with adjustable wing mounts equipped for aerodynamic use as well as to increase number of firing solutions available.

This account of the vessel's design legacy predates Star Trek: Enterprise and assumes Bird-of-Prey-type ships were a product of the Klingon-Romulan technical exchanges implied by the TOS episode: "The Enterprise Incident".

The vessels crewed 12 officers and men. Additionally, the K22A could carry 250 metric tons of cargo, rated at 5 SCU (standard cargo units). Unloaded, the vessel weighed 46,300 metric tons, measured 88 meters in length, 130 meters in width and 16 meters in height.

The K22A's computer was of the ZD-4 type, and the vessel was loaded with 1 standard (6 person) personnel transporter and had landing and atmospheric flight capability.

The K22A warp engines were KWC-3 type, rated to cruise at warp seven and max out at warp factor 8. Impulse engines were of the KIB-1 type. The K22A had 2 KD-8 disruptor emitters, with arcs of fire to fore as well as port and starboard. The vessel a single KP-5 launcher weapon and was defended by KSC model deflector shields and equipped with KCB model cloak.

By the end of the 23rd century, the K22A was no longer in production, with 8 vessels having been built, none remaining in active service after the K22A class was phased out by the K22B-class. (FASA RPG module: Klingon Ship Recognition Manual)
