The Klingons are a humanoid warrior species that originated from the planet Qo'noS (pronounced Kronos), an M-class planet. One of the major powers of the galaxy, the Klingons are a proud, tradition-bound people who valued honor and combat. The aggressive Klingon culture had made them an interstellar military power to be respected and feared. Klingons believe that they have the instinctive ability to look an opponent in the eye and see any intent to kill.

Once an ally with the Federation of Planets, the Klingons were strong supporters of the Federation. However, due to multiple disagreements (politcal and combative), in 2381 the Klingons disavowed the Federation and closed off its borders. There have been several conflicts between the Federation and Klingons since then, but for the most part, the Klingons have remained in seclusion, a trait uncommon with their usual aggressive and forthright behavior.

Notes of Interest

The Federation has sent Peace Ambassadors to Qo'nos to re-establish a cordial relationship with the Klingons, but thus far, there has been little progress.
