Young Martok

Little is known of the early life of Martok, save for a brief history sketched by himself in the Deep Space Nine episode Once More Unto the Breach. It is known that he was born into a Klingon house (The House of Martok) that was not part of the aristocracy. His family had been reputable soldiers, although not officers. Young Martok aspired to officer status and applied to become one. Unfortunatly, his application was denied because of the elitist views of the famous Kor about the "great houses". With a rejection on his record from such a legendary officer, Martok could no longer even serve as a common soldier. He opted to still serve, and spent five years as a civilian laborer on General ShiVang's ship. When, during a battle, Romulans boarded the vessel, Martok fought valiantly alongside the crew. His performance and bravery in battle caught the eye of General ShiVang, who granted him a battlefield commission as an officer.

We can infer that since that battlefield commission he has been a capable officer and leader, at Martok's introduction to the series he has attained the rank of General.

Around 2372, Martok was abducted by the Dominion and replaced with a shapeshifter. The exact date of this is unclear. The shapeshifter inadvertently revealed himself to Odo (who had been misled into believing that Gowron was the shapeshifter) at a Klingon award ceremony, and was quickly killed by the Klingons attending the ceremony.

In By Inferno's Light, Martok escaped and returned to the Alpha Quadrant with Garak, Worf, and Julian Bashir, and was made commander of the Klingon forces on Deep Space Nine (some of the Klingons under Martok's command took to calling him the "one-eyed giant", although never to his face for obvious reasons). Martok is an excellent judge of character, caring deeply about those under his command. Martok took command of a Klingon bird-of-prey, the Rotarran, and made it his personal flagship. Initially, the Rotarran's crew were beaten and fatalistic, but Martok and Worf helped rally their warrior spirit.

Shortly before the end of Dominion War (When It Rains...), Gowron came to Deep Space Nine to honor Martok by inducting him into the Order of Kahless, and then announced that he would be taking control of the Klingon forces from Martok because it was time for him to "take a more active role in the war." However, it became clear that Gowron was simply worried about Martok getting too powerful politically, and intended to lower Martok's standing by sending him into battles that he could not win. Worf tried to convince Martok to challenge Gowron but he refused, so Worf killed Gowron himself and, rather than accept the title of Chancellor, gave it to Martok.

Chancellor Martok

The Dominion forces suddenly withdrew into Cardassian territory. The Allies realized that the Dominion was withdrawing in order to gain time in order to lick their wounds, so that they could come back stronger a few years later. Martok said that the Empire voted to attack right away, and convinced the Federation and Romulans to attack as well.

Despite the refusal of Admiral Ross and Captain Sisko to drink bloodwine with Martok in the halls of Cardassian Central Command, the Federation and Klingons remained allies. Martok was happy to receive Lt. Commander Worf as the Federation Ambassador to Qo'noS. He commented that he had an Ambassador that he could go targ hunting with. A targ is a fictional animal in the Star Trek universe. ...


J.G. Hertzler — who played Martok — wrote two books on the future of Martok. While these books are not canon, they do paint an interesting picture of Martok's future after he became Chancellor.


Trivia

When Hertzler auditioned for the role of Martok, he threw a chair at a wall to demonstrate anger. He lost a thumbnail in the melee, but won the role.
