The Vudar were a Subject Race of the Klingon Empire. Tens of thousands of Vudar served in the Klingon military as starship crews and ground troops; more were colonists on new worlds discovered by the Klingons. Because the Vudar had a higher natural resistance to radiation, they could be employed in starship engine rooms and on colonies with higher radiation than other species found tolerable. Because of higher radiation along the edge of the Galaxy, the Klingons allowed the Vudar to operate some small police patrol vessels to make sure these areas were not used by pirates, rebels, or other enemies. Over time, these ships ceased to carry Klingon guards in shielded spaces, and as the threats by pirates increased, these Vudar police ships became larger and better armed. During the second half of the General War, the Klingons hit upon a clever idea. They spread rumors that the Vudar had rebelled and become the independent Vudar Enclave, taking over several Klingon provinces along the galactic rim. These included some captured Hydran territory. (In reality the Vudar Enclave remained a part of the Klingon Empire.) The primary purpose of this deception was to convince the Hydrans to stop trying to recapture those provinces by declaring them “neutral territory of a separate nation.” The Hydrans were unsure if this were true, but it meant fighting on a narrower front and so they accepted the Klingon story. The Federation fell for it hook, line, and sinker and thought it meant that the Klingon Empire was on the verge of collapse. The Federation decided to concentrate on destroying the Romulan Empire, figuring that the Klingons were a lesser threat than they actually were.
This ship is a combination of a Vudar design for a dreadnought and a Klingon design for the same class that was used in their simulators in case the Klingons ever had to crush the enclave. Rumors were spread by the Vudar that such ships were under construction or had been completed and were being held in reserve. The Hydrans reported fighting one but this was never confirmed. While it is questionable if the Vudar could have assembled the resources to build such a ship, they would have had to find the money somehow if they ever wanted to be truly free of the Klingons. The design had considerable firepower and would have presented difficulties for a Klingon C8K, Federation Guided Weapons Dreadnought, or Hydran Paladin.
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.
