The K'vort class (or K'Vort-class) was a type of Klingon bird-of-prey light cruiser starship in Imperial Defense Force service in the 24th century.

The K'Vort was similarly used as a patrol and pursuit craft in the mirror universe, by the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance. By the 2370s, the K'Vort was one of the most common and expendable vessels in Regent Worf's fleet. (DS9 episodes: "Shattered Mirror", "The Emperor's New Cloak"; CCG set: Mirror, Mirror)

It was a variation of the B'rel class bird of prey.


The K'vort-class was developed out of the highly successful B'rel class, and is essentially just a much larger version of the same design. (ST reference: Starship Spotter)

Despite its success, the class began to fall into obscurity towards the end of the 24th century following the introduction of more advanced cruisers such as the Vor'cha-class. Since the K’Vort-class’ introduction, it has served in several major confrontations in the service of the Klingon Empire. Most notably among the conflicts were the Cardassian War, the Klingon Civil War, the short lived Federation-Klingon War, and the Dominion War. While not the most heavily armed or armored vessel in the Klingon Defense Force, its speed, maneuverability and utility have secured this class’ place in the fighting force for centuries to come.


The K'vort-class is fitted with 4 disruptor cannons, 2 photon torpedo launchers and a cloaking device.
