Did anyone play Star Trek: Klingon Academy? It's not canon, but it's worth
watching the in-game videos if only for Chris Plummer's reprisal of the
role of General Chang.

Anyway [spoilers follow for a game released in 2000, so not really spoilers
at this point]...

In the game, someone betrays you. It's supposed to be a surprise, but it
was obvious who it was going to be from the beginning because the
character's name was "Jaghjech". (One of the game's writes had obviously
thought themselves very clever by naming the would-be traitor "enemy [in]
disguise".)
