The Klingon ship has more in common with Streamline Moderne than Deco, but it's really neither. There's some Googie architecture in some of the matte paintings.
Here's a great site for seeing actual Deco and Moderne.
The Streamline Moderne or Art Moderne style is generally considered a later phase of Art Deco, the earlier phase being Zigzag Moderne.

The Klingon battlecruiser had elements of both styles in surface treatment if not in overall form.
