Among the crew serving on the ship during the attack was the brother of Sirella, who was the helmsman.
In 2376, the Orantho remained loyal to Martok after Gothmara and Morjod's coup d'état. Sirella later boarded the ship and assumed command for the coming attack on Boreth. During the battle, the Orantho came to the aid of the IKS Ch'Tang, Martok's ship, which was under heavy fire from the IKS Chak'ta. The Orantho drew the enemies fire, before ramming one of the enemy cruisers, destroying itself and its target. (DS9 - The Left Hand of Destiny novels: Book One, Book Two)
