Kruge was a main character of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The romanized Klingon spelling of Kruge is Qugh, which is also the word for disaster.

Fittingly, he was commander of a Klingon Bird of Prey on an ill-fated mission to collect all available information on the Federation's secret weapon known as The Genesis Device. Serving this mission, he lost his mate, his pet, all but one of his crew, Maltz, who was captured, and his ship, which had also been captured by Kirk. He was defeated while bravely fist-fighting the infamous Kirk on the Genesis Planet. (1)

Kruge was the first Klingon speaking character after the creation of the Klingon language and therefore represents one of the best resources for pronunciation.
