Founded over 1,500 years ago on the planet of Qo'nos by Kahless the Unforgettable, the Klingon Empire is a feudal government that is centered on the pursuit of honor and conquest.



Officially the Klingon Empire is led by a clone of Kahless the Unforgettable who serves as Emperor; however, the true leadership of the Empire rests with the Klingon High Council consisting of a Councilor from each of the 24 Great Houses and a Chancellor chosen from among the High Council membership. By law the Chancellor is selected after ritualized combat where the victor is named Chancellor and the loser is typically killed. While a woman may lead a Klingon Great House she may not pursue Chancellorship under current regulations. To administrate the territory of the Klingon Empire Governors are normally appointed to oversee regions on behalf of the leaders of the Great Houses.


While a race may petition to join the Klingon Empire the more common means by which a race joins the Empire is following their world being claimed by the Empire in combat.

Dominant Member Species

The stubborn and territorial natives of Gornar, the Gorn are extremely stronger and taller than other humanoids. With slitted silvery eyes, sharp teeth, claws on their hands, and scaled green rubbery skin, the Gorn were conquered by the Klingon Empire in the late 24th Century.
A proud warrior race from Qo'noS, the Klingons can be identified by their cranial ridges, dark skin, muscular build, and multiple redundant organs. Feared and respected throughout the Milky Way Galaxy, the Klingons are the dominant race of the Klingon Empire and value tradition, honor, and strength.
Originating from the planet Orion, the Orion species is a matriarchal society where the women dominate the men through the emission of highly powerful pheromones. Conquered by the Klingon Empire, the Orions are a green skinned species who are still involved in multiple underworld dealings through their control of the Orion Syndicate.

Klingon Defense Force

Also known as the Imperial Klingon Defense Force or the KDF, the Klingon Defense Force is the military branch of the Klingon Empire. While the individual Houses own the vessels that constitute the Klingon Defense Forces, all Houses have sworn loyalty to defend the Empire if it becomes threatened.
