The symbol of the Klingon Empire, a bit blurred from the scrambling  the message has been put through to hide the transmission source, fills the screen.
After remaining for several seconds, it is replaced by the view of the bridge of a Klingon warship, a prominent Klingon sitting in the central command position, staring into the viewscreen. By his uniform, and the baring he exudes, it can be determined that he is very high in rank.
After several seconds, letting the image remain, he stands, and steps forward, opening his mouth to speak, his eyes gazing with sharp penetration into the screen, and seemingly, through it.
"Greetings, I am nI' aj'yo' Shra'Hawk, commander of the Klingon vessel IKS Negh'var. This message is to inform the galaxy, and those within the Klingon  Imperial Empire, that I, of my own free will, as well as the crew of my ship, have  left the service of the Qang, and joined the Brotherhood of honor. I call upon those Klingons loyal to the true empire, to bring their crews and ships to help the Brotherhood in this time of struggle, to restore the honor to the Klingon Empire, as well as their personal honor.
We must stand together, to restore the honor of the Klingon Imperial Empire as a whole, and repair the damage that the most recent actions of Qang Krotoc have done.
To that end, I also renounce the government of the Qang, and pledge myself and my ship to restore the true Klingon Empire to it's rightful place within the galaxy.
Long live the true Klingon Imperial Empire."
With that, he raises his hand in a traditional Klingon imperial salute to the screen, as does his entire bridge crew, and the image fades, replaced once again with the symvol of the empire, which too fades after several seconds, leaving the screen blank.
