I was just wondering, what's the difference between those 2 ships? Because they look EXACTLY the same (at least the BC-models)...

Only thing I DO know that the K'Vort is a (Battle)cruiser and the B'Rell is an Escort, and the K'Vort is a little bit bigger, but WHY do they look the same?

Or did the one that made the K'Vort-model instead used the B'Rell, made it bigger and added some more weapons?

It's kinda hard to believe that a ship that's supposed to be twice the size looks exactly the same...

That is precisely what a K'Vort class is!!! A giant version of the B'rel Class. There are other differences, such as armaments, shield strength, etc. But their basic design is identical.

The wing shape of the K'Vort is slightly different then that of the B'Rel. The wings are longer, in perspective to the primary hull, and he chord is thinner at the tip, while being wider at the root. The K'Vort's 'wings' are also fixed in an 'upright' position, much like the B'Rel's cruise position. This could be because the wings were simply too large to move affectivly. The servos to move something that large would have to be huge, not to mention that most of the weight (The disruptors) are on the tips of the wings..

The Kvort is an alternate timeline ship seen in yesterdays enterprise. 3 of them can easily take out a galaxy class.

Thats odd, I could have sworn that the two variants where used interchangably in TNG and DS9. Sometimes with wings up sometimes down, and often at different scales.

They were seen in quite a few TNG episodes...Remember hte episode with the Romulan defector? When the Enterprise went to check out the suspected Romulan base in the Neutral Zone, two Warbirds decloaked..a few threats were exchanged, and 3 K'Vorts decloaked, 1 behind the warbirds, and two flanking the Enterprise. 'You will still not survive our assault..' 'And you will not survive ours..' Yeah..That was a cool episode.

Actually, those ships in "The Defector" were a LOT bigger than a K'Vort.

Note the BoP/Warbird on the left. The BoP's wingspan is about half as wide as the Warbird itself, yet it is BEHIND the Romulan ship (look at the nose).
