3788 Scale Klingon SD7B Unrefitted Strike Cruiser

3D printed in white nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.
Product Description
Concerned over reports of the new Federation strike cruisers of the Prometheus class (about which the Klingons knew little), they responded by building an unusually short boom section to convert a D7B into an SD7B "strike cruiser." If the concept worked, the Klingons could easily switch construction of boom sections to the shorter design, and even retrofit existing ships with shorter booms.

In theory, such a cruiser would be slightly faster, slightly cheaper to build, and just as combat effective. This was, in a way, similar to the design concept of the war cruiser. Every fleet wanted to find a way to build a cruiser that cost less but did exactly the same thing. The term "strike" cruiser has no specific meaning in the Star Fleet Universe but is used for any number of "alternative cruiser designs" which have little to do with each other. The Klingons and Federation use the term to mean a cruiser with one smaller section reducing the overall cost while keeping the larger part of the design intact. The design was a disappointment, and the Federation design proved to be less of a threat than expected, so the one ship given the special boom was converted back into a standard D7 and the experiment was quietly forgotten.

If the Klingons had thought of the idea of a strike cruiser first, they would have used the D7B as the base. The SD7B would be the result. And perhaps as the first of its type, it would have been such a threat that more would have been made.

The ship is available in a variety of materials. Ships are unpainted, use standard flight stands available from many sources, and, while designed for gaming, make fine display pieces.
