Overview

In 2267, when war broke out with the Federation, Kor occupied the neutral planet of Organia. He served as military governor over the pacifist population at the same time as Federation officers Captain James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock were on the planet. The two resisted the Klingon occupation, but were captured and forced to escape. Kirk and Spock confronted Kor just as the Federation and Klingon Fleets were about to take part in a battle. The Organians stopped the fighting before it could start by making all instruments on both sides red hot. The Organians revealed themselves as beings of pure energy (rather than the humanoids they had initially appeared as) and forced the Federation and Klingons to sign what became known as the Organian Peace Treaty. Kirk and especially Kor were upset with the race's interference, but complied. James Tiberius Kirk, played by William Shatner, was captain of two starships Enterprise (NCC-1701 and NCC-1701-A) in the fictional Star Trek universe. ... Spock, commonly called Mr. ...


Kor would next appear in the animated series episode "The Time Trap" as Captain of the IKS Klothos, in which he engaged Captain Kirk in battle. The two were forced to work together in order to escape from Delta Triangle region of space. As the canonical status of the series is questionable, Kor's appearance in the animated series has not been established as part of the official history of the character. The Time Trap is an episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series. ...


Kor is a dahar master. When his firstborn was killed by a genetic virus unleashed by an Albino Klingon, along with the firstborns of Kang and Koloth, they swore a blood oath with Curzon Dax to exact revenge on the Albino, carried out with Jadzia Dax in 2370 (Blood Oath). In 2372, Kor, Dax, and Worf journeyed to the Gamma Quadrant in search of the legendary The Sword of Kahless. The trio found the sword, but Kor and Worf realized that if the sword was reintroduced to Klingon society, it would cause division rather than unity. The sword was later beamed into space. Kor said of the trio's discovery, "It was our destiny to find it, but not our destiny to keep it." Kang is a character from the fictional Star Trek universe. ... Curzon Dax is a fictional character in the Star Trek universe. ... Lieutenant Commander Jadzia Dax (played by Terry Farrell) was a fictional character in the first 6 seasons of the television show Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. ... Blood Oath is a second-season episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. ... Worf (worIv in the Klingon language) is a Klingon in the Star Trek fictional universe. ...


The episode Once More Into The Breach (set in the year 2375) depicted Kor as a hero to the Klingon Empire. As third officer aboard a Klingon vessel commanded by General Martok, Kor seemed to rise to the occasion by seizing command when Martok and first officer Worf were injured in a Dominion attack. However, in mid-battle, the senile Kor had a flashback to a battle with the Federation, and as a result of his momentary break with reality, his reputation was instantly ruined, as Martok and other Klingons began to mock him ruthlessly. Martok is a fictional character in the Star Trek universe. ...


To prevent the Jem'Hadar from destroying all four remaining Birds of Prey before they could reach Sisko's re-enforcement squadron, Worf agreed to command one of the ships in a suicide attack on the pursuing Jem Hadar fleet. However, Kor tricked Worf and took his place as commander of the attack, the success of which disabled the Jem'Hadar just long enough for the rest of the Klingon fleet to avoid a battle in which they may have been somewhat outgunned. Thus, Kor redeemed his reputation and died gloriously, as a warrior, a prerequisite for Klingons to enter Sto-Vo-Kor. To honor his self-sacrifice, the crews of the remaining ships sang the "Qoy qeylIs puqloD" (Hear sons of Kahless), to show their devotion; -the most respected song for a most respectable move. Ikatika, a JemHadar soldier in 2373 In the fictional Star Trek universe, the JemHadar are the shock troops of the powerful Dominion located in the Gamma Quadrant. ... Benjamin Lafayette Sisko is a character in the fictional Star Trek universe. ... In the fictional Star Trek universe, Sto-Vo-Kor is the state of existence that Klingons believe that honorable members of their society will go to in the afterlife. ...


On that episode it was not clear if Kor did die; Worf was monitoring Kor's ship as they fell beyond sensor range. His death was left as a logical assumption. As John Colicos had died on March 6, 2000, it is unlikely that Kor would make any further appearances in a Star Trek related movie or television series. March 6 is the 65th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (66th in Leap years). ... This article is about the year 2000. ...
