The IKS Rotarran (IKC-62127) was a K'vort-class bird-of-prey in service for the Klingon Empire's Defense Force in the 2370s. Martok commanded it from 2373 to 2375, and the ship saw action in many battles of the Dominion War. (ST:CCG: The Dominion, ST roleplay module: Starships)


Service history

In every engagement over the seven months before Martok took command, the Rotarran was defeated again and again in combat by the Cardassians and later the Jem'Hadar.

Martok was given command of the Rotarran to use in locating the IKS B'Moth, which had been patrolling the Cardassian border and had not reported in in several days.

During the journey, Martok ordered the ship to go around the Tong Beak Nebula, lest they encounter any Dominion ships there. The General also refused to attack a Jem'Hadar attack ship conducting sensor scans. When the Rotarran discovered the B'Moth damaged and adrift, Martok decided against mounting a rescue attempt, as the ship had drifted into Dominion territory. He then gave the command to withdraw.

Worf later turned the ship around, and mounted a challenge against Martok. The General defeated Worf and, given confidence by him, engaged another Jem'Hadar ship and rescued the survivors of the B'Moth. (DS9 episode: "Soldiers of the Empire")

The ship was assigned to watch the Cardassian border for signs of a Dominion fleet heading to Deep Space 9 to stop the wormhole minefield from being activated. The Rotarran was able to stop the Jem'Hadar ships from stopping the USS Defiant. The ship later docked at Deep Space 9 where Worf boarded his new assignment. (DS9 episode: "Call to Arms"; DS9 novelization: Call to Arms...)

After convincing Chancellor Gowron to aid Benjamin Sisko's forces during Operation Return, the Rotarran led the Klingon forces to the battlefield in 2374. (DS9 episode: "Sacrifice of Angels"; DS9 novelization: ...Sacrifice of Angels)

In 2375, the Rotarran was awaiting repairs at Deep Space 9. Its scheduled repairs were later changed, to allow Chief Miles O'Brien to make repairs to the Romulan warbirds IRW Dividices and IRW Genorex. (DS9 episode: "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges")

Several weeks later, the Rotarran and the IKS Koraga were attacked by the Dominion in the Badlands. The Rotarran was able to rescue six escape pods. (DS9 episode: "Penumbra")

Soon after the disastrous defeat at the Second Battle of Chin'toka, the Rotarran participated in the attack on Avenal VII, where Martok was seriously injured. (DS9 episode: "Tacking Into the Wind")

In 2376, Worf and Ezri Dax used the Rotarran to search for the Sword of Kahless. After retrieving the sword, they were forced to crash the ship on Boreth to bring the sword to Martok. (DS9 novel: The Left Hand of Destiny)

The IKS Rotarran was a Klingon B'rel-class starship that saw service during the 24th century.

The Rotarran had a poor combat record prior to 2373 and low crew morale. It was made General Martok's flagship in that year and despite some initial problems under his command the honor was restored to the ship and its crew. (DS9: "Soldiers of the Empire")

The Rotarran was commanded by Martok throughout the Dominion War. (DS9: "A Time to Stand", "Once More Unto the Breach", "Tears of the Prophets", "What You Leave Behind"; Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 1: The Ships of Starfleet)
