Built as a prototype for a heavily modified Vor'Cha before the Dominion
the Torath Torpedo Cruiser proved to be a valuable addition to the
Klingon fleet. While this ship is a rare sight in Klingon fleets due to
expense, it is often seen reinforcing Vor'Cha squadrons, providing them
more stand off firepower from its large torpedo armament.
The Torath keeps the mega disruptor of the Vor'Cha, and a medium disruptor
firing aft, but trades its heavy disruptors and forward firing mediums for
more torpedoes. With two forward heavy tubes and four medium tubes it can
quickly collapse the shields of even the largest ship and cause critical
damage. The class proved particularly successful against Cardassian Galor
class craft in the Dominion war. While it sacrifices heavy disruptor power
it gains an additional four light disruptors to intercept enemy fire and
provide the ship with short range crunch ability.
This ship cannot stand up to an enemy cruiser at close range, but excels
its assigned role, long ranged sniping of key enemy ships.
