In 2290, the T'Ong was dispatched on a "crucial" long-range mission from the Klingon Empire under the command of Captain K'Temoc. Due to the long travel time involved, the T'Ong's crew was placed into cryogenic suspension for the journey. The cruiser returned and was heard from in 2365, when the ship sent out an automated signal directed to the Klingon High Command. The crew awakened soonafter unaware that the Empire and the Federation were no longer at war.
The signal was also picked up by Starbase 336, notifying the Federation of its location as well. Realizing the danger to lightly-defended Federation colonies in the sector, including those in the Boradis system, the USS Enterprise-D was dispatched to intercept the T'Ong, with Special Emissary K'Ehleyr as an adviser. It was initially believed that the destruction of the T'Ong was unavoidable once the revived Klingons were confronted by their former adversary, but the T'Ong was saved when Lieutenant Worf masqueraded as the captain of the Enterprise and convinced K'Temoc that the Federation and the Klingon Empire were now at peace.
