"If you were not an ambassador I would disembowel you right now!" (Worf to Iyaaran Amb. Byleth, who had accused Worf of lying during a poker game [TNG "Liaisons"])

Known Klingon diplomats/ambassadors are Kamarag (ST4 & SAREK) and Kell (TNG "The Mind's Eye").  Have we seen any others?  (Note that K'Ehleyr was a Federation ambassador (TNG "The Emissary" & "Reunion".)
