Other involvement[]

  • In Tales of the War #19, the Bortasqu' is engaged in combat with the Heralds, Doctor Harza-Kull struggling to keep up with the wounded among her crew.


  • The Bortasqu' was added to the game in Season Seven: New Romulus, though her existence had been implied in earlier missions.
  • bortaSqu' means "fierce revenge" in Klingon. The name derives from the word bortas ("revenge") which itself was used on a D5-class and a Vor'cha-class warship.
  • At the launch of Season Seven, the Bortasqu' used a "KDF" prefix rather than the conventional "IKS". As of April 2, 2013, this has been resolved.
  • In the 2014 “Day of Honor” mission, the playable Bortasqu' could be seen with Federation emblems on her hull instead of the proper KDF insignia.
  • Following the Victory is Life expansion, the Bortasqu' can be seen parked near Deep Space 9.
  • The Bortasqu' was released as issue #4 in the Star Trek Online Starships Collection.
