By 2273, the Ghargh was under the command of Commander Kral. That year, the Ghargh went to the planet, Cragon V, to take the planet for the Klingon Empire, but the Ghargh was disabled by the planet’s ruler, Weyland.
First Officer Kbrex took command from Commander Kral. Kral escaped to the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) and was able to retake the Ghargh. The Ghargh was recalled to Outpost 27. (TOS novel: Home is the Hunter)
