History and FeaturesEdit
An evolution of the B'rel/K'vort design family, the K'vort Cha class was one of the newest starships employed by the Klingon Empire in the late 2370s, entering service shortly before the Klingon invasion of Cardassian territory in 2372, which later led to the Empire's withdrawl from the Khitomer Accords and the outbreak of hostilities with the Federation due to the latter's condemnation of the invasion shortly thereafter. Carrying a newer, more powerful type of disruptor cannon, the cannons were equipped with a phasic shield inhibitor, allowing them to penetrate shields and even the hulls of some enemy starships, which quickly made the class a favorite of aggressive captains favoring a 'lone wolf' style of combat.
