|Kang's battle cruiser|
|Operator:||Klingon Imperial Fleet|
Kang's battle cruiser was a Klingon D7 class battle cruiser that was in service with the Klingon Imperial Fleet in the mid-23rd century. This ship was commanded by Captain Kang. The ship had a crew compliment of 438.
In 2268, Kang's battle cruiser responded to a Klingon distress call transmitted from the planet Beta XII-A. En route the cruiser mysteriously sustained massive internal damage, caused by explosions, disabling the ship. The result was the death of 400 of the ship's crew.
As the ship drifted towards Beta XII-A, Kang beamed down to the planet to discover Captain Kirk on the surface. Kang accused Kirk of attacking his ship and took Kirk prisoner while claiming the orbiting USS Enterprise for the Klingon Empire.
Kang convinced Kirk to beam the group up to the Enterprise, where he and the remaining 37 survivors were transported aboard as prisoners. Kang's ship would further be destroyed by the Enterprise's phasers to eliminate the danger the cruiser posed from the massive amount of hazardous radiation it was emitting. (TOS: "Day of the Dove")
