The Order of the Bat'leth is an ancient organization within Klingon society which honors the Empire's greatest warriors. It was founded by Lady Lukara, the widow of Kahless the Unforgettable, who wished that her husband's vision of honor be maintained and upheld.
Over the centuries, the original aims of the Order fell by the wayside; however, when Chancellor Martok came to power, he renewed the Order's ancient mission to ensure that all activities of the Empire were made honorably.
The medallion given to Order members upon their induction contained a hidden transceiver tuned to a reserved subspace frequency, allowing members of the Order to call their fellow members into action.
