In 2269, Nargov was working at Site wej on Beta Thoridar when Krov was killed. During the investigation of Krov's death he said that he had heard that Krov was buried under a rockslide. Later that same day, he would offer his condolences to Krov's friend Malvak, son of Jorq.
Nargov eventually rallied the other QuchHa' mine workers, who struck back at their HemQuch comrades due to widespread prejudice and injustice against the QuchHa' who were working in the mine. While Nargov's group held little regard for Klingon law and tradition ("Honor is a coin we cannot afford"), and were even met with howls of laughter when they attempted to carry out ritual Klingon challenges against the HemQuch, the group was eventually successful in drawing attention to the QuchHa' plight.
