The ship and much of its crew were introduced in the novel Diplomatic Implausibility, and also appeared in The Brave and the Bold, prior to the launch of its own series Star Trek: IKS Gorkon. Three Gorkon novels were released before, in 2008, the series was renamed Star Trek: Klingon Empire for the release of the fourth novel A Burning House. The new title is an attempt to re-brand the series, allowing story-telling to be opened up and to explore more of the Klingon Empire, though still through the eyes of the Gorkon crew.
