IKS Amar

Class: K't'inga-class
Owner: Klingon Empire
Operator: Klingon Imperial Fleet
Status: Destroyed (2273)

The IKS Amar was a Klingon K't'inga-class battle cruiser that was in service with the Klingon Imperial Fleet in the late 23rd century.

In 2273, the Amar and two other vessels intercepted the V'Ger cloud as it traversed Klingon space. Upon contact, the Amar and its sister ships were vaporized by the energy cloud, taking the three ships, and their crews, out of existence. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

Amar personnel


Background information

In Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the Amar is referred to as the "Imperial Klingon Cruiser Amar", as in IKC Amar.

The set for the Amar's bridge was built on Paramount Stages 12 and 14, its construction costing US$175,000. (The Making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, p. 95) The footage filmed on the Amar bridge set was shot during The Motion Picture's postproduction period. (The Making of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, p. 193)

The name of this vessel was the inspiration for the character Amar, who was later referenced in Star Trek: Voyager. (citation needededit)

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (pg. 64), a possible origin for the name of the ship was the Amar star system. This was a single star system. Amar was a G class star with a magnitude of +5, which was the same brightness as Sol. It was located in or near Klingon space.
