The Negh'Var class was a powerful new form of warship developed by the Klingon Empire in secret, with very few even among the Klingon High Council knowing of the project's existence. It was a significant departure from "traditional" Klingon designs which favored swift, agile vessels, instead offering heavy firepower and pure brute strength.
Negh'Var class ships were slightly smaller than Starfleet's Galaxy-class ships, and were capable of carrying a security detail of 2,700 personnel. They were armed with disruptors, heavy disruptors and photon torpedoes. (video games: Armada, Armada II)
- It is unknown if all ships of this class had cloaking devices, as none other than Martok's flagship were capable of engaging cloaking. However, in a future timeline where the Klingon Empire conquers the Romulan Star Empire, a ship resembling the Negh'Var was capable of cloaking to escape battle. (video games: Armada, Armada II)
The Negh'Var-class was also present in the mirror universe under the command of the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance. Regent Worf used one of these vessels, also called IKS Negh'Var, for his flagship. The vessel led an attack on Terok Nor in 2372 but was forced to retreat after suffering heavy damage at the hands of the Terran Rebellion. In 2375 both she and a cloaking device stolen from the prime universe Klingon Empire were captured by the Rebellion. (DS9 episodes: "Shattered Mirror", "The Emperor's New Cloak")
