I like the DSC/DIS designs so far.  But these reinterpretations are pretty cool too.  Nice work!

I have to say that they're definitely a lot better than the spike-filled ... things that are in the actual show.

I like your versions of the Klingon Ships from DIS. They look more utilitarian and fit for mass production.  The sarcophagus ship in particular looks much more studier at the nacelle connection points and manages to look older while not looking like an overblown Sagrada Familia.

Wow. You really pumping these out like a machine, yes? All of them have different attitudes, Which I like. I really like the Carrier ship with the launch pads.

Okay, time to address the proverbial "elephant in the room"...the D-7.  I have seen stills of what ST: Discovery has called the D-7 and it is a travesty to us fans (again, I love the design, just not for the ship it was supposed to represent).  So, originally I was not going to do the D-7 as we all know what she is supposed to look like (even all her re-interpretations and re-uses are generally more true to form then what we have seen in ST:Discovery), so I saw no point in redrawing her... But I then gave it some thought and figured, why not take this opportunity to add to the D-7 family as a fielded variant in the Klingon fleet.  So here she is... The D-7XL (now for all you aircraft aficionados you will get this designation's connection to the F-16XL).

Enjoy:

I rather like that little one.  Wonder if there's a Klingon word for Soyokaze.  ;D

Well, here is the TOS Klingon Bird-of-Prey that had to be made.

Looks like the Duras family has been conspiring with Romulans again...

Playing devil’s advocate for a moment…  Did you know that there are two Akula-class submarines?  There’s the one that the Russians call “Akula-class” and there’s the one NATO calls “Akula-class”.  Perhaps this is a similar situation, Starfleet calls one ship a “D-7” while the Klingons call a different ship “D-7”.

Hey thanks!
I am also keenly aware of designations of NATO vs the "native" designations (glad you brought it up :)  )... But the non-canon Klingon designation of the "Koloth" (canon Starfleet designation TOS D7), and later the "K'Tinga" (a different, more modern variant of the D7 design in TMP) are the Klink designations for the classes.  Now from my understanding, Discovery stated the Klingon ship was a D7...meaning it was the Starfleet designation, not the Klingon one.  I designed another variant of said TOS D7 but this one was made to follow the hull lines of both the original D7, and marry it up with the one from Discovery.

I really like, and would have vastly preferred your interpretations of these Klingon ships.
