Mogh Battle Cruiser
Overview[edit | edit source]
Several teams of engineers have been working on iterations of the Klingon Defense Force's battle cruiser technology. One team, led by Ambassador Worf, developed a smaller, more nimble ship intended to combat enemies who rely on speed as a defense. In honor of his contributions to the project, Ambassador Worf was allowed to name the new starship class. He chose the name "Mogh" in honor of his father, a Klingon warrior who died in the Khitomer massacre of 2346.
The Mogh Class Battle Cruiser is more offensively focused than the Negh'Var Heavy Battle Cruiser, but slightly less durable. It was designed with versatility in mind and offers a balance between offense and defense. It features a Dynamic Defense Deployment System, which is a versatile rapid defense deployment weapon designed specifically for the Mogh Battle Cruiser.
Variants[edit | edit source]
Mogh class[edit | edit source]Bortasqu' class and Peghqu' Heavy Destroyer. The Mogh has short, stout proportions, and its outer hull is covered in thick, segmented armor plating.
Weapon hardpoints are readily visible on the hull, and the ship's few windows are secured in recessed niches that can be covered up in combat. The Mogh's wings and nacelle pylons angle downward slightly by default, though a straightened pylon option is available for the Fleet Mogh Battle Cruiser. Like the Vor'cha Battle Cruiser, the front of the hull is "forked", separated into two sections by a large, blocky deflector array.
Performance[edit | edit source]
With 5 fore weapons slots, 4 Tactical and 4 Engineering Console slots, the ability to use the innate Cloaking Device, the ability to mount Dual Cannons, and a high Turn Rate (9), the Mogh is a very formidable ship, besting the Federation's otherwise equivalent Avenger Battle Cruiser in crew complement and innate cloaking.
The ship's main weaknesses are its lack of Science abilities and only 3 aft weapons slots, leaving the ship vulnerable to Alpha-Strike tactics, especially by other decloaking enemy vessels. To counter this, the ship is equipped with its own innate Cloaking Device, granting the ship a strong Alpha-Strike capability of its own.
