The '''Ja'chuq''' is a [[Klingon]] ceremony that is sometimes part of the [[Rite of Succession]]. The ''Ja'chuq'' was used in the ancient rite, and rarely used in modern times. However the ''Ja'chuq'' can still be used as part of the Rite if desired by the [[Arbiter of Succession]].

In the ''Ja'chuq'' the two strongest challengers would each have to, among other things list the battles they had won and the honor they had gained in the process – proving to the [[Klingon High Council]] why they were worthy to lead the Klingon people.

The ''Ja'chuq'' eventually became obsolete and was rarely used in the modern rite. In the modern rite, all that was required was a declaration that two challengers had been chosen. However when [[K'mpec]] died, the chosen [[Arbiter of Succession]], the [[Human]] [[Captain]] [[Jean-Luc Picard]], decided to require [[Gowron]] and [[Duras, son of Ja'rod|Duras]] to undergo the ''Ja'chuq'' in order to delay the process so that the crew of the {{USS|Enterprise|NCC-1701-D|-D}} could investigate possible [[Romulan]] interference in the Rite of Succession. This marked the first time that the ancient ways were used in quite some time. ({{e|TNG|{{ed|Reunion}}}})
