The IKS Buruk was a Klingon Bird-of-Prey that was in service with the Klingon Defense Force in the mid-24th century.

In 2367, the Buruk transported Gowron to the Gamma Arigulon system to attend the Sonchi ceremony after Chancellor K'mpec's death. Later, the Rite of Succession was held aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Reunion")

According to the script for this episode, the pronunciation for Buruk was "BOO-ruk". [1]
It's possible that the Buruk may have been the Bird-of-Prey that transported Gowron to Deep Space 9 in "The Way of the Warrior" and "When It Rains...".
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 65) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), there was a star system named Buruk, which might be the possible origin for the name of this starship, in the Beta Quadrant. The system's primary was a F-class star.
