Whipped this together over the course of 4 Star Trek TNG episodes, Samaritan Snare, Up The Long Ladder, Peak Performance, and Family.
It's been used as other ships, but its first appearance - I think - was The Samaritan Snare, where the Pakleds, fairly stupid - aggressive - aliens, captured Geordi, forcing him to build them weapons "To make them strong".
In a Keniverse story of mine, "Chippin' Away" (The villain, Chuck, is scamming a bank using copied Credit card chips). Chuck gets abandoned in a shuttlepod he stole, and the Pakleds rescued him. He stole from them, too, and they launched him in an escape pod.
The Pakled vessel of this class is named the Gnulkcalb (Nul-Kulb), which is actually the word Blacklung backwards. The Pakled captain in Samaritan Snare reminded me of both of an ex-roommate, "Cockroach", and another friend, who was obsessed with cigarettes, Dave Kornblet. I created a Pakled version named Evad Telbnrok, a cigarette-obsessed Pakled.
