What we have here is a nice new Kligon Construction ship (though, with the amount available on the site, I would suggest it to be used as a heavier version of it) which is a great model even using the stock Klingon textures. It's design is rather interesting but still fits in with common construction ship requirements and it really is just a "beefier" version of the basic one bar the addition of an extra forward disruptor beam.
For those who have lots of structures or would simply like to build some of the bigger Klingon ships via constructor (Bird of Death, perhaps), this would be ideal. For those who don't have the above, it doesn't matter, it certainly is worthy of an addition to the Empire. In addition to the actual ship, the mod contains all files for a complete add-on, such as a wireframe and build button (which both look very nice indeed). Anyhow, a fine creation overall, well done!

In times of war, these highly gifted workers are used to create a sophisticated infrastructure for the Empire. The construction ship deploys a team of single-manned construction bots who swiftly and skillfully assemble a stations superstructure while the construction ship transports the necessary raw materials to the workers who promptly finish off the station’s interior. The ship is armed with two forward-firing disruptor cannons for defense and is also equipped with a tractor beam to tow derelicts and ships with disabled engines.
