Fleet Tor'Kaht Battle Cruiser Retrofit
The Fleet Tor'Kaht Battle Cruiser Retrofit is a General (Tier 5) level Klingon Battle Cruiser and is a retrofit of the Vor'cha Battle Cruiser. Players can obtain the vessel through the Shipyard for 20,000 and 4 , as long as the player's Fleet has a Tier II shipyard.
The Fleet Tor'Kaht Battle Cruiser Retrofit is much larger compared to the K't'inga models (nearly double the length), and due to this has nearly double the crew.

Vor'cha classVor'cha class was the main attack cruiser of the Klingon Defense Force during the mid-24th century. One of the first Klingon cruisers to deviate from the classic design of vessels like the K't'inga class 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.

This versatile ship, though severely lacking in Science abilities, possesses the ability to cloak, mount Dual Cannons, and has a good Turn Rate (10), making these ships a prime choice for strafing runs and surprise Alpha strike-type attacks. These ships, while often being described as ’ugly’ or ‘ungainly‘, are in essence superior to the much more aesthetically pleasing Federation ships of similar class and size. Tactical and Engineering captains will get the most out of this line of vessels.
The Fleet Tor’Kaht Battle Cruiser Retrofit has a Bridge Officer orientation similar to that of the Fleet Assault Cruiser Refit, but with several key differences. Being a Battle Cruiser, this Fleet variant has a very high turn rate for a cruiser and is only outmatched by the K't'inga Battle Cruiser Retrofit, Fleet K't'inga Battle Cruiser Retrofit and Fleet Kamarag Battlecruiser Retrofit. However, this small base turn rate difference is a very small price to pay for the abilities this ship has.
Being a Battle Cruiser, it can be set up like any other cruiser. With the Lt. Commander Tactical and Lieutenant Tactical stations on the ship, players can utilize Attack Pattern Omega 1 and cycle Cannon Rapid Fire 1 should they wish to mount those weapons. Playing as an Engineer will grant this ship great survivability and damage-dealing abilities, but playing this ship as a Tactical will grant the player the ability to do damage on-par with Escorts while having superior survivability.
The disadvantage this ship has is the Turn Rate and Inertia rating compared to actual Escorts. A good pilot can utilize Evasive Maneuvers, an Engine Battery and possibly Emergency Power to Engines to help speed up its Turn Rate significantly. The Fleet Tor’Kaht’s only other disadvantage is the lack of Science abilities, which is common on most Klingon Battle Cruisers. As long as the player is able to fit Hazard Emitters for extinguishing plasma fires from Borg ships in STF missions (as well as the recent surge of playable Romulan Warbirds with plasma weapons as standard) and has the basic grasp of learning to fly the ship like an Escort should it possess cannons, then this ship should not be a problem to deal with.
