The Vor'cha-class Battlecruiser is a Tier 4 (Level 30) Battlecruiser which may be flown by Klingon Defense Force characters, including Klingon Empire-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. The faction restrictions of this starship can be removed by having a level 65 KDF character or by purchasing the Cross Faction Flying unlock from the Zen Store.

Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 10,000 Refined dilithium icon.png.  

This ship can also be obtained by Klingon Empire players for free upon reaching level 30 by using their free SRKDF4.png Starship Requisition token.


The main attack cruiser of the Klingon Empire during the mid-24th century, the first Vor'cha-class Battlecruiser were reserved for use by the Chancellor and members of the High Council.

The Vor'cha class is much larger than the K't'inga class (nearly double the length). The ship stands very well toe-to-toe with an Exploration Cruiser. It has nearly double the turn rate, but one less device slot and a weaker hull.

Class Information

Purchasing the Legendary Vor'cha Command Support Battlecruiser for 25,000 Zen small icon.png unlocks all existing ship variants.

Vor'Cha class
Ship Variant - KDF - Vor'cha Battle Cruiser (Beta) (T4).png
Vor'Cha class (Beta)
The Vor'cha class is one of the first Klingon cruisers to deviate from the classic design of the K't'inga or D7 class, the Vor'cha has a forked forward section housing the main forward battery. The command section is further back and the neck thicker to accommodate more crew quarters and internal systems.

Players may also select the "Vor'Cha Beta" preset, which applies yellow and red decals similar to the B'rel and Negh'Var classes', as seen on some Vor'cha-class ships starting with DS9: "The Way of the Warrior".

SKIN UNLOCK: Legendary Vor'cha Command Support Battlecruiser, 25,000 Zen small icon.png
In his youth, K’mpec was a powerful warrior, and an even more cunning politician. He managed to wrangle the ambitions of the great houses of the Klingon Empire and unify the Empire under one banner for a longer rule than any other Chancellor of the High Council had before. After the successful launch of the Vor’cha-class battlecruiser, K’mpec had plans drawn up for an even more powerful variant of the Vor’cha to serve as his personal flagship. Ultimately K’mpec died before the ship could be built, but its plans were recently discovered in the Imperial Archives.
Ship Variant - KDF - Vor'Kang Battle Cruiser (T4).png
Vor'Kang class
SKIN UNLOCK: Vor'Kang Battlecruiser, 150,000 Refined dilithium icon.png
Based on the classic Vor'cha class ships of the late 2360s, the new Refit Vor'Kang class was engineered to combat the growing threat from the Federation.
Ship Variant - KDF - Tor'Kaht Battle Cruiser (T5).png
Tor'Kaht class
SKIN UNLOCK: Fleet Tor'Kaht Battlecruiser Retrofit, 20,000 Fleet Credits, 4 Fleet Ship Module icon.png
OR Fleet Vor'ral Support Battlecruiser, 20,000 Fleet Credits, 5 Fleet Ship Module icon.png

One of the latest variants of the Vor'cha-class Battlecruiser, the Tor'Kaht class represents a radical departure from the classic Vor'cha design. Its design instead shares many similarities with the Vo'Quv Carrier.
Ship Variant - KDF - Vor'ral Battle Cruiser (T6).png
Vor'ral class
SKIN UNLOCK: Vor'ral Support Battlecruiser, 3,000 Zen small icon.png
Design of the Vor'ral class has been brewing for decades, but seen many changes and offshoots that eventually became entirely new designs across the whole spectrum of mission profiles. Thanks to the sharing of technology between Starfleet and KDF, the Vor'ral has finally launched from the Imperial Shipyards.

Despite having "Vor'ral" in its name, the Fleet Vor'ral Support Battlecruiser does not unlock the Vor'ral-class customization parts.
Ship Variant - KDF - Kamarag Battlecruiser (T3).png
Kamarag class
SKIN UNLOCK: Any Kamarag-class variant
The Kamarag class bridges the design gap between the K't'inga class of the late 23rd century and the Vor'cha class of the mid-24th century. While the ship's head section matches the K't'inga, the rest of it (its thick neck section, Vor'Kang class-styled nacelles) more closely resembles the Vor'cha and her sister classes.

Owning any Kamarag variant (Tier 3, Tier 5, or Tier 5 Fleet) will unlock the Kamarag variant for use on a Vor'cha class vessel.
Ship Variant - KDF - Fleet K'Maj Battlecruiser Retrofit (T5).png
K'maj class
SKIN UNLOCK: Fleet Kamarag Battlecruiser Retrofit, 20,000 Fleet Credits, 4 Fleet Ship Module icon.png
The K'maj class is a slightly modified variant of the original Kamarag-class design. The command section of the forward hull was replaced with a two-pronged variant, the mission pod features forward warp field stabilizers, the warp field stabilizers on the nacelles has been extended to the back of the nacelles, and the impulse generator has been replaced with four smaller ones.



The Vor'cha-class Battlecruiser has a cloak that allows the ship to cloak when not in combat, granting stealth and a damage bonus upon decloaking.
