Mr. Sternbach:

Another conversation surfaced over at the Starship Modeler discussion thread about the size of the Kronos One as compared to the standard K'T'inga battlecruiser. Apparently (and I don't have the book in front of me right now, but) the Haynes Klingon Bird of Prey manual shows Kronos One to be around 349 meters in length, whereas the standard K'T'inga is supposed to be 214m (awfully small by comparison).
I must confess I didn't have a lot to do with the other ships shown in the KBOP manual; most of my time was spent with the Bird-of-Prey. I think in a lot of cases I was given a length, and I calculated the proportional heights and widths. Since we posited that Klingon ships could be scaled "on the fly" as it were in the shipyards, some similar looking vessels might have different lengths. A cheat, I know, and hopefully the discussions will continue.
