Description:

Meaning "fire blade", the BaH'Taj Breaching Pod was developed alongside the SuQ'Jagh Assault Cruiser to act as a direct assault craft for deploying marines. For centuries transporters were the mode of choice for deploying marines aboard enemy craft, but during the Dominion War the Klingons decided they did not have the luxury of battering down the strong shields of Dominion cruisers in order to beam over troops. Instead, the BaH'Taj is designed to actually ram through weakened enemy shielding and attach themselves to craft. In this regard they suffer heavy attrition, but out of a wave of breaching pods at least a few will break through to attempt to attach to the enemy ship.

Design Notes:


The BaH'Taj was created to make sense of the SuQ'Jagh's fluff text that said it used assault craft as breaching pods to attach
to enemy ships. The way the Star Trek universe works makes this a highly dubious endeavor, but I decided to depict it
nonetheless. I guess the stupid or hated Klingons get assigned to these things.
