T-5 "Throne Seeker" class   ●   Assault Ship

ot much different from the T-3, the T-5 is another fictional and fabricated Klingon vessel with a tad more power and a pad more protection than the T-3. As with most assault ships, the T-5 is great as "window dressing" for campaigns involving planetary invasion as part of their goal. Keep these ships out of harms way for as long as you can. With a superstructure this weak, it only takes one or two well-placed torpedo shots from a cruiser to destroy the T-5 outright. The one saving grace of this class, in my opnion, is the fact that the game designers (click here to see original graphic) did a decent amount of extrapolation from the classic "Klingon" look; wings, neck-and-pod, slung warp nacelles, and a predator-like appearance. Too bad this vessel type never made it beyond the pages of the ill-fated FASA manuals.
