The IKS Hegh'ta was a Klingon Bird-of-Prey that was in service with the Klingon Defense Force in the mid-24th century. In 2367, the Hegh'ta was under the command of Captain Kurn.

In that year, the Hegh'ta fought for the forces loyal to Gowron during the Klingon Civil War in late 2367, successfully assisting in repelling an attack on Gowron's flagship, the IKS Bortas.

By early 2368, Worf had been assigned to the Hegh'ta as tactical officer. During an engagement with two other enemy Birds-of-Prey, Kurn was able to elude and destroy both vessels by flying close to the surfase of a star, then jumping to warp, triggering a solar flare which consumed both pursuing ships.
