Three-view orthographic plans of the K't'rika-class battlecruiser.
K’t’rika-class battle­cruis­er.

The basic design of the ubi­quit­ous Klin­gon battle­cruis­er has per­sisted for over a cen­tury. The K’t’rika (“Bring­er of Agony”) arrived at the end of the Klin­gon War of 2256, and was code­named “D7” by Star­fleet Intel­li­gence. Com­pared to its pre­de­cessor, the K’t’kara, the K’t’rika is about 10% lar­ger, boasts more phaser tur­rets and has addi­tion­al capa­city for ded­ic­ated ground forces. The Empire’s impress­ive con­struc­tion facil­it­ies turned out dozens of these ves­sels with­in a few years of its intro­duc­tion, and examples were traded to the Romu­lan Star Navy towards the end of the 2260s, appar­ently in exchange for improved cloak­ing technology.
