Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]

Klingon starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The K'Tanco Battle Cruiser did not exist when Star Trek Online first launched, and was added later by Cryptic in response to a lack of variety in lower tier Klingon ships.
  • When starting level for Klingon Defense Force characters was raised to Level 20 (Commander) with Season 5 release, the K'Tanco Battle Cruiser was removed from the playable ship roster. With the Legacy of Romulus expansion and the reinstatement of KDF players starting at Level 1, this ship was returned to the regular playable Klingon ship roster.
