Funny you should mention Boreth.  We do know the name of one Klingon
constellation from KCD ("ST:Klingon").  It is {ghochwI'} "The Tracker",
which is also the title of a sculpture in Torghn's house, a 3D
representation of the constellation.  According to the Kahless myth, this
constellation contains the bright star Boreth orbits that Kahless pointed
to when he left his followers.
