The new spirit of détente in Operation Delta Rising has led to more cooperation between engineering teams throughout the Alpha Quadrant. When the Starfleet Corps of Engineers shared some of the specifications for Starfleet's new Command Battlecruisers with the teams from the Klingon Defense Force, the Empire's engineers decided to take the technology and give it a uniquely Klingon spin. While Klingon Command Battlecruisers can act as mobile command centers that inspire and inform fleet allies, they are designed specifically for battle. The Command Battlecruiser incorporates innovations from KDF battlecruisers to make it into the ultimate vessel for fleet operations.
The Klinzhai-class Command Battlecruiser is a science centric variant and as such features more science console slots and science bridge officer seats than the other Command Battlecruiser variants.
|SKIN UNLOCK: An'quat War Command Battlecruiser, 3,000 |
Like their main inspiration, the Bortasqu' class, the Command Battlecruisers feature a stocky hull with short wings. An engineering-focused variant, the An'quat class is relatively smaller and simpler in design when compared to its sister classes. A short and bulky "neck" section connects the primary hull to the boxy "head" of the ship.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Free with this starship |
A science-focused vessel, the Klinzhai class features a small mission pod placed near the front of the "neck" section. Unlike the other two variants, the Klinzhai has two large pod-shaped structures on the underneath of its primary hull. It is unknown whether these are disruptor cannons or tertiary warp nacelles.
|SKIN UNLOCK: Ty'Gokor Tactical Command Battlecruiser, 3,000 |
While similar to the Klinzhai in overall shape, the Ty'Gokor class seems slightly more combat ready with a bulkier "neck" section, more aggressive-styled head section and huge warp nacelles. Like the other Command Battlecruisers, the ship features a quad nacelle configuration. One shuttle bay is placed on top of each wing, between the two warp nacelles.

This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.43 for the Klinzhai-class Science Command Battlecruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
