:Translated from the Klingon language, the ship's name means "continuing death" or "everlasting death".
Is there a source for this? I know HeghtaH means "he/she/it goes on dying" and Heghta' means "he/she/it has purposely died", and I'd probably pick the former over the latter, but unless there's a source to back this up I could also see how it might be an anglicization of Hegh ta', which means "deed of death" of "accomplishment of death". --220.127.116.11 12:48, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
In this episode we can clearly see that the two attacking ships as well as the Hegh'ta are all K'Vort class ships and not standard Birds of Prey - Gordon – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk).
