The K'Tanco Battle Cruiser is a Lieutenant Commander (Tier 2) level Klingon Battle Cruiser vessel. It is the first Battle Cruiser that players of the Klingon Empire will gain access to. The K'Tanco Battle Cruiser matches to the Federation Cruiser in most respects. It has, however, a higher turn rate, is able to mount Dual Cannons and has a cloaking device. Its Starfleet equivalent has a stronger hull and one extra device slot.

The K'Tanco Battle Cruiser did not exist when Star Trek Online launched, and was added later by Cryptic in response to a lack of variety in lower tier Klingon ships.

Between the launch of Season 5 and the launch of Legacy of Romulus, this ship was not available for requisition; during this period KDF players started at Commander.

Variants[edit | edit source]

K'Tanco class[edit | edit source]

K'Tanco class
The K'Tanco class is named for the famed battle cruiser IKS K'tanco. A lighter but more modern version of the K't'inga class battle cruiser, the K'tanco has a squarer and more angular design. The forward command module is flatter and has an under-slung torpedo launcher. Unlike the traditional Klingon battle cruiser arrangement, the warp nacelles are integrated into the aft engine assembly, similar to a Bird-of-Prey, leaving the main forward battery to be mounted on Bird-of-Prey-style feather-patterned wings.
