The IKS T'Acog was a Klingon cruiser that was in service with the Klingon Defense Force in the mid-24th century.

In 2364, the T'Acog was sent to apprehend the Klingon criminals Korris, Konmel, and Kunivas, who had commandeered the Talarian freighter Batris. By feigning a power failure, the fugitives were able to lure the T'Acog into close range, and then destroyed it with a barrage of merculite rockets when the cruiser lowered its shields to board the freighter. There were no survivors. (TNG: "Heart of Glory")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 489), the T'Acog was a K't'inga-class battle cruiser. In the episode, it was referred to, simply, as a "cruiser".
Despite the ship's name being spelled as "T'Acog" in both the Encyclopedia and the episode's shooting script, K'Nera mispronounces the ship's name as "K'Atog" in the only occasion when the ship's name is mentioned in dialogue.
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 65), a possible origin for the name of the ship was the T'Acog star system. This was a single star system. T'Acog was a B class star with a magnitude of +7, which was 1/10 the brightness as Sol. This system was the site of a historic battle. It was located in or near Klingon space.
