The Battle of Klach D'Kel Brakt was an engagement fought between the Klingon Empire and Romulan Star Empire in 2271 in the area of the Briar Patch (Klach D'Kel Brakt in tlhIngan Hol). It was a decisive victory for the Klingon forces led by Kor, which was partially won on the ground in melee combat. (DS9: "Blood Oath")

The identification of Klach D'Kel Brakt with the Briar Patch was first made in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "The Augments". Stories which predate that episode may have differing portrayals of the region, thus altering the details of the battle.

Romulan Centurion D'Galan tr'Jevihkh was seriously wounded in the battle, and left the Romulan Star Navy shortly afterward. (IRV Imperiax)

Several lightsabers were used by the Klingons during the Battle of Klach D'Kel Brakt; it was the first encounter the Romulans had with this terrifying weapon. And the Klingon forces inflicted heavy casualties during the ground operation. The IKS Klothos was Kor's flagship during the battle. On the ground, skirmishers and artillery were posted on the top of a cliff, while the vanguard retreated towards the cliff, luring the Romulans in.

Ariane Binks wrote her senior thesis in history at the University of North Carolina about lightsaber commerce in the Briar Patch in the aftermath of the Battle of Klach D'Kel Brakt. (Star Trek: False Vacuum: "Black Tornado")
