The following is a list of unnamed Klingon starships of the Vor'cha-class.

24th centuryEdit

K'mpec's attack cruiserEdit

Vorcha class

K'mpec's attack cruiser

K'mpec's attack cruiser was a Vor'cha-class starship that carried K'mpec to a meeting with USS Enterprise-D Captain Jean-Luc Picard, where he asked the Federation officer to be his arbiter of succession. K'mpec died aboard his attack cruiser a short time later, the victim of veridium 6 poisoning.

The Sonchi ceremony with K'mpec's two possible successors, Gowron and Duras, took place aboard the ship shortly thereafter. Just as the ceremony was completed, one of Duras' aides detonated a bomb using a Romulan molecular decay detonator, killing himself and one of Gowron's men. (TNG: "Reunion")

This unnamed vessel represents the first of its class ever seen in Star Trek. According to the Klingon Bird of Prey Owners' Workshop Manual, on page 118, this ship was the prototype IKS Vor'cha. According to Decipher's RPG reference book, Starships, this cruiser was the prototype IKS Vor'cha with the registry IKC-11500, although they mistakenly refer to the class as battle cruisers. For more information, see IKS Vor'cha at Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek works. It's also possible this ship was the IKS Bortas, which served as the flagship of K'mpec's successor, Gowron.

Alliance attack cruiser, 2370 Edit

An alliance attack cruiser

This attack cruiser pursued the runabout from the prime universe, piloted by Julian Bashir and Kira Nerys, as they attempted to escape the mirror universe in 2370. (DS9: "Crossover")

Alliance attack cruiser, 2371Edit

These vessels were used in the mirror universe by the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance during the 2371. (DS9: "Through the Looking Glass")

In this appearance, Alliance vessels clearly had cloaking devices, however, it seemed by "The Emperor's New Cloak", the Alliance no longer had the cloaking technology that was previously found on these vessels.

Attack on the PrakeshEdit

Vorcha and Kvort class

The pursuing ships

This attack cruiser joined three Birds-of-Prey in their attack on the Cardassian Galor-class starship Prakesh (carrying members of the Detapa Council to Bajoran space), which had been interrupted by the USS Defiant in early 2372. The Defiant used its tractor beam to significantly reduce the effectiveness of the cruiser's disruptor weapons while it beamed the Prakesh passengers and crew aboard. The ship and the remaining active Bird-of-Prey then pursued the Defiant all the way to Deep Space 9, where they participated in the attack on the station. (DS9: "The Way of the Warrior")

Footage of these starships was later used to represent the IKS Rotarran rendezvousing with the IKS Vor'nak in the DS9 Season 6 episode "Sons and Daughters".

Ty'Gokor starshipsEdit


Ty'Gokor ships

These starships were among those that protected Klingon High Command at Ty'Gokor. (DS9: "Apocalypse Rising")

Gowron's fleetEdit

On stardate 50564.2 several unnamed Vor'cha-class starships were among the large contingent of Klingon warships that arrived at Deep Space 9 after falling back from Cardassian space, following the Cardassians declaration of joining the Dominion. Several more later arrived at DS9, and were among the last of Gowron's fleet to reach the station. (DS9: "By Inferno's Light")

Second Fleet Edit

Second Fleet

Several Vor'cha-class ships in the Second Fleet

In late 2373, several unnamed Vor'cha-class starships belonged to the Second Fleet.

While the Dominion attacked Deep Space 9, during the second Battle of Deep Space 9, several of these vessels crossed the Cardassian border and destroyed the Dominion shipyards on Torros III. These ships later joined with the USS Defiant and IKS Rotarran, following the evacuation of DS9, for a counterattack against the Dominion forces. (DS9: "Call to Arms")

Operation ReturnEdit

Klingon fleet, Sacrifice of Angels

The Operation Return ships

These ships were led by Martok and Worf in Operation Return, after they persuaded Chancellor Gowron to contribute them. The ships turned the tide on the battle and managed to outflank the Dominion. (DS9: "Sacrifice of Angels")

Sirella's transportEdit

Sirellas vorcha cruiser

Sirella's transport

This Vor'cha-class starship brought Sirella, the matriarch of the House of Martok, to Deep Space 9 in 2374, to officiate at Worf and Jadzia Dax's wedding. (DS9: "You Are Cordially Invited")

It was unclear if this ship belonged to the House of Martok, or was simply the transport that got Sirella to DS9.

First Battle of Chin'tokaEdit

Many Vor'cha-class starships were part of General Martok's fleet that participated at the First Battle of Chin'toka. At least two were destroyed.

Ninth FleetEdit

Vorcha Once More Unto the Breach

In 2375, this unnamed Vor'cha-class starship, belonging to the Ninth Fleet, was patrolling near Deep Space 9 during the departure of General Martok. (DS9: "Once More Unto the Breach")

26th centuryEdit

Battle of Procyon VEdit

In an alternate timeline, occurring during the 26th century, an unnamed Vor'cha-class starship participated as part of the Federation fleet involved in the pivotal Battle of Procyon V against the Sphere-Builders. (ENT: "Azati Prime")
