Klingon - Star Trek - The Original Series

Star Trek featured a range of alien races which would become as famous as the show. In the original series, the so-called main alien antagonists were the Klingon, who look different to what they do now. In the original series, there were only three episodes that they appeared in but that was enough for them to be seen as the main antagonists. In Star Trek - The Next Generation, the Klingons had been a lot less hostile and a Klingon, Lieutenant Worf served as a member of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701D crew with distinction.

The original Klingons were bronze in colour with facial goatees beards. In the rebirth series of films and Next Generation, the Klingons become dark skinned with ridges on their faces. In the series Star Trek - Enterprise which was set before the original, the Klingons appeared with the new look. The Star Trek excuse for why they looked different in the Original Series was that a disease caused their looks to change. The Klingons originate from a planet called Kronos where they are governed by Klingon High Council at the Great Hall. The Klingons place a lot of emphasis on Honour, it is better to die with Honour that live as a coward.

Klingon Death

Honour is something that the Klingon respect more than anything else. An honourable death will enable a person to enter Sto'Vo'Kor which is equivalent to Valhalla in Viking religion. If a person commits suicide then they are denied going Sto'Vo'Kor.

When the House of Mogh, the house that Worf belongs to is dissolved because of a dispute, Kurn cannot bring himself to commit suicide. Kurn comes to Deep Space 9 and asks his brother Worf to kill him. Worf is willing to do this but when he strikes Kurn's chest with the knife, Jadzia Dax and Odo break into the room and save Kurns life. In order to prevent Kurn from trying to commit suicide again, Julian Bashir clears Kurns memory and implants him with a new memory. The Sons of Mogh
