K't'ingaKlingonShip121713

The seventh issue of the Star Trek Official Ships Collection features a K’t'inga class Klingon battle cruiser.

The ship released differs in color from an early promotional image of the ship.

The ship released is based on the flat-grey ship featured in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, instead of the green ship from Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country.

The color may be less bright than the green ship, but there is still plenty of detail on the ship to keep it from looking dull. There is a golden dome on the underside of the ship, and a grill on top of the ship is dark red.

The magazine accompanying the ship gives an overview of the ship with a four-page history and a feature spread of the ship showing the K’t'inga master systems display, all in Klingon. Also included is a behind-the-scenes section, from design to film digitization, and photos of the miniature.

The next Klingon ship, from the Vor’cha class, will appear in issue twenty.

The K’t'inga class ship from this collection can be purchased from Amazon.co.uk, Things From Another World, Entertainment Earth, Forbidden Planet and other various websites.

    My favourite Klingon battle cruiser from the original series and TMP. When will they release the collection in Australia?

  • 1moreRobot

    Can this collection be started at any time, or do you have to begin with whatever ship is released when you join up?

    NOW we’re talkin’. So glad they didn’t go with that annoying green.

    It was blueish-green in Motion Picture and was repainted gray with burgundy plating by ILM for Undiscovered Country. The lighting and compositing process makes it look a different color. The original Romulan Warbird from TNG is almost gray and it didn’t get its over-saturated green hue until post production. Cool model for the K’T'Inga, but this paint job really represents neither the Amar nor Kronos One.

    The K’t'inga is a gorgeous ship. It was a remarkable design achievement in that it managed to be virtually identical to the basic Jefferies D7 design from the series, while at the same time looking like a Ralph McQuarrie “Star Wars” ship. The opening birds-eye rotation around the Amar in TMP is one of the most striking single shots in all of Trek.

    I cant wait for mine to arrive. I am really enjoying this collection. Maybe since Kronos One is the chancellors ship its more dolled up.

  • Kang the Unbalanced

    Aye, she’s a beauty.

    It’s an interesting mix though. I like it. I blame the craze for green on Klingon ships is the fault of that stolen Romulan ship from III (well possibly traded, perhaps for some disruptors and a case of Pabst) and the inconsistently scaled stock footage thereof. After that, even the K’tingas were all turned that ghastly green. No, the gray is much more dignified. To which I say, Bleh.

    Oh, agreed. I very much prefer the gray myself as well. I even like the blinged-up Kronos One to a degree, although I recall that many fans thought that ILM destroyed the filming miniature with that paint job and all the brass etchings. Personally, I thought it was quite cool looking, and the detailing work they did in on the bridge area IMO really made it for me.
