|The Bortas is disabled|
- See IKS Bortas (Vor'cha class) for the Vor'cha-class vessel of the 24th century.
In that year, the Bortas was assigned to locate and capture a refugee ship from the Klingon protectorate of Raatooras. Tracking the ship to a system just outside of Klingon territory, the crew discovered that it had been rescued by the Human vessel Enterprise. The Bortas subsequently engaged in battle with Enterprise, but was disabled when Enterprise lured the Bortas into the rings of a gas giant and ignited the plasma. For his failure to apprehend the refugees, Duras was reduced in rank from captain to second weapons officer. (ENT: "Judgment")
