The Klingons in "Prophecy"

Do we have any ideas as to precisely when the ancestors of the Klingons encountered by Voyager left the Empire behind, or why? All their leader says is that it was because they considered the Empire to have lost its way, but that's it.

I can't remember if they mentioned it in the episode, but how did they get out there? If they traveled there without the caretaker to drag them out there, at least 40 to 50 years ago. It would have taken 70 years at maximum warp for Voyager to get back home from the Caretaker array. They probably sawed off 20-30 years with their shortcuts to get to where they met the Klingons. That Klingon vessel was slower than Voyager, so who knows? I wasn't buying it though.

It would have to have been prior to ST VI: TUC, as the Klingons in Prophecy believed the Federation were still their enemies. They also wore the type of uniforms first seen in TMP, so probably not before the early 2270s.

Interestingly, according to Star Trek Online, Miral Paris, the Kuva'magh they were searching for, was sent back in time to the year 2270, where her genes were used to cure the Qu'vat virus.
