The IKS Chot was a Klingon Negh'Var warship in service with the Klingon Defense Force under the command of Captain Kadek. It was used in the attack on the USS Leviathan and abduction of Captain Masc Taggart in 2409.
On stardate 83164.0, the Chot attacked the Federation vessel USS Leviathan, sending a distress call under the guise of a cargo vessel called the SS Break Even. Captain Kadek sent boarding parties over to try to take over the Leviathan, but was unsuccessful in doing so. Instead, his teams managed to capture the Leviathan's captain, Masc Taggart. Kadek then attempted to use Taggart as a bargaining chip to gain what he wanted: Starfleet's fleet strategy on the Federation-Klingon border, as well as their ships' technical schematics. He then gave Ensign Jason Fredricks the choice between giving him the information or watching his captain die. Taggart convinced Fredricks that the Federation's safety was more important than his own, and they ended communications. Fredricks attempted to ram the Chot with the Leviathan, but luckily, the USS Renown warped in before he could. Unfortunately, the Chot warped out of the system, just as the Renown received a distress call from another Starfleet vessel. It remained unknown what became of Captain Taggart, and he was listed as missing in action.
