The Barge of the Dead

For the VOY episode of the same name, please see "Barge of the Dead".
"This is a Federation starship, not the Barge of the Dead."

The Barge of the Dead was a mythological Klingon barge that ferried the dishonored souls of the dead to Gre'thor, captained by Kortar (also known as "Kotar"), the first Klingon. When Kortar became more powerful than the gods who created him, he destroyed them, and, as punishment, he was condemned to ferry the souls of the dishonored.

Along the Barge's path, the Kos'Karii try to lure the dead off the Barge, like the sirens of ancient Greek mythology. (VOY: "Barge of the Dead")

In the Star Trek Online missions “Afterlife” and “The Gates of Gre'thor”, the player visits the Barge of the Dead and travels to Gre'thor.
