Star Trek Attack Wing IKS Negh`Var Klingon warship build

The I.K.S. Negh'Var is the flagship of the Klingon Empire and is commanded by the extremely effective General Martok. It has led several Klingon invasions and has won much honor for the Empire.
The Negh'Var is surprisingly maneuverable for its large size. It can also target an enemy ship's shield generators in order to facilitate a massive boarding action against that ship.

Another article in the "Builds" series, as usual I am following the no more then 50points rule, faction pure and only the cards that come in the pack.  so what can I create for one of the Empires most Fearsome ships?
The Negh`Var is a combat beast, good firepower tough hull, good manoeuvres but low defence as is standard with the Klingons I mean defence has no honour right? But it does have some tricks up its sleeve


As ususal for Klingon ships she can cloak, and The  ships inbuilt ability is an action and allows you to target a ship at range1-2, and try to knock the shields down, if you can then you can play the Klingon boarding party crew card for free.  I like the theme of this you discard the boarding party for them to go over and disable all upgrades on the enemy ship and take away any battlestations.  I can Just imagine them causing havoc over on the ship.  It is a discard card, but its fun and thematic and goes well with the ships ability.

For captain we have Martok, he allows friendly ships to get a free action if lower in captain skill, and with Martoks 8 that's a good chance he can support the ships in the centre of the line.  He has the elite talent option and has In`Cha, which you can play to do another manoeuvre.  Very handy to reposition yourself, or leave an enemy thinking he is safe then appear up in his face, again very thematic so long as you shout it when you use it!

Rounding out the loadout is Photon Torpedoes, these ones get a bonus when fired from a Negh`Var class giving them more punch, and since torps in this game are not one use like Xwing, you just have to reanble them it makes a powerful choice!.

A great and solid ship and a fine addition to the Klingon Empires fleet.
