This next update skips forward into the Future era to present a successor to the KDF’s venerable B’Rel class Bird of Prey – from a production standpoint, the MiG-21 of the 23rd/24th Centuries. I don’t know what really gave me the inspiration for this, as the idea took shape I just rolled with it. Doing some research and trying to nail down the number of examples active led me to briefly broaden my focus and do the same for the rest of the KDF proper. Nailing those down and establishing the future classes I wanted to cover formed the basic framework for a ‘State of the Klingon Fleet’ – yet another future project to work on.
Anyhow though, back to the topic at hand. The Mave’Q class was the brainchild of ‘Raven Night’, a prolific designer/modeler whose work in one form or another, stretches all the way back to the days of the first Starfleet Command PC game. I have it positioned as a frigate and the larger of two ‘birds’ slated to replace B’Rel (though not nearly as large as K’Vort). The history is somewhat barebones, describing the impetus behind its conception and what led to its development with a little blurb thrown in about the Federation Alliance’s conflict with the Typhon Pact. Am also hoping to brainstorm a little more before proceeding further in this direction, but we’ll see what I come up with.
