Tagugar is a Kilrathi was tactic which involves suicide to destroy an enemy. Doing this engance the strnegth of the clans and was considered the highest honor.
Warriors volunteered to commit tagugar before a battle to attain the highest honor. Until leaving for their mission they are treated as semi-divine, and females who gave birth to their cubs are held in honor, and their offspring granted the honorific ka-tagu.
On the wake of the McAuliffe Ambush, tagugar volunteers were to pilot two light smuggler-type craft carrying a warhead, and pretend that they are pursued by Kilrathi ships, in the demilitarized zone before McAuliffe. The "smugglers" wowuld then approach the Confederation frigate who is on picket duty in front of the jump point to McAuliffe, and once overhauled, they would detonate the warhead, killing themselves and destroying the frigate, scheduled with the arrival of the 6 carriers of the Second Claw Fleet.
