The Second Federation-Klingon War was a brief war between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire in 2372 and 2373.

The war has its roots in the Klingon-Cardassian War in early 2372, when the Federation refused to side with the Klingons. In response the Gowron withdrew the Khitomer Accords. The two powers barely avoided all out war when the Klingon fleet attacked the Starfleet administered Deep Space 9. (DS9: "The Way of the Warrior")

In late-2373, the Klingons demanded the Federation abandon their bases within the Archanis sector and deployed a force to reclaim the sector. (DS9: "Broken Link")

The Federation refused to yield Archanis and the two powers went to war. Following three months of fighting a ceasefire was brokered between the Federation and Klingons following the revelation that General Martok was a Changeling impostor. (DS9: "Apocalypse Rising")

The ceasefire was broken a few weeks later by the Klingons. At least four Klingon battlegroups attacked the Federation along the border. The Second and Sixth Battlegroups pushed Starfleet out of the Archanis sector while the Fourth Battlegroup struck at Belis IV and the Third Battlegroup launched a number of attacks against Federation planets and outposts along the border. In response the Fifth Fleet sortied after the Fourth Battlegroup while the Twentieth and Twelfth Fleets assaulted the Klingon forces in Archanis. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Chariots of Korvat")

The Klingon Fourth Battlegroup's attack on Belis IV resulted in the death of over 12,000 civilians. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Vengeance")

The ceasefire was reinstated several days later. (DS9: "Nor the Battle to the Strong") The war would not officially be over until later that year when Gowron reinstated the Khitomer Accords following the Cardassian Union joining the Dominion. (DS9: "By Inferno's Light")
