The Mek'hlar Class Destroyer was first designed in the early 2320s as a replacement for the aging K'Tinga Class.  Smaller and more maneuverable than its predecessor, but every bit as powerful, the Mek'hlar was supposed to become the Klingon Empire's premiere attack vessel.  However, the advent of the Federation's Ambassador Class starship prompted the Klingons to delay the Mek'hlar in favor of designing an all new, much larger class of attack warship, the Vor'cha. 

The Mek'hlar remained in a state of flux for many years before the first ships were launched in 2360.  However, after the initial unit run was built, the Klingons again scaled back their efforts in order to concentrate on designing larger warships like the Negh'var. But with the expierience of the Dominion War and the loss of many Birds of Prey against the agile Dominion Fighters, the Empire replace the losses with alot of Mek'hlar class Destroyer.

I'm curious - what's with the gun off the port side of the neck?

Whats with it? What is the question about?
Kittamaru's avatar
It just seems a bit odd - though, looking up other angles, it appears it has them on both sides, and is angled to be a bit above the prow of the ship (at first I thought it was just sticking out the one side, and basically was shooting at the prow lol). I should clarify - it isn't that there is anything odd with your picture of it - it's that the design of the ship itself seems a bit odd.

Yeah, if i had designed the ship, i had changed the Disruptor guns to another place, more to wings.

*nod* I think that would have made more sense - as they are, they couldn't cover the bottom (ventral?) side without risking hitting the front end of the ship :)

Very cool work.  Isn't this like Emporer Worf's ship in the DS 9 episode ... the last one of the Mirror, Mirror series they did one a year or so during the series?
