Klingon Vor'Cha Battle Cruiser
from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (1987-1994)
About the Design
Continuing the Klingon tradition of small, forward thrust command modules and massive engineering hulls, the Vor'Cha was the Empire's new flagship when it was introduced halfway through the run of ST:TNG. Bigger and more powerful than any other ship in the Klingon fleet, the ship presented a somewhat flatter profile than previous Klingon designs as well as a bridge superstructure unique among Klingon spacecraft.
About the Kit
The Vor'Cha (Still simply called a "Battle Cruiser" by its manufacturer) was a well-made but not overly popular kit from the AMT/Ertl "Star Trek" line. Part of its lackluster sales was no doubt due to the fact that, unlike the B'rel-class "Bird of Prey," the Vor'Cha never played a principal role in any Star Trek movie, nor was it ever more than a background ship in most TV episodes.
This model was built from an original issue.
