Character Actor Episodes
Hugh Jonathan Del Arco I, Borg, Descent, Descent, Part II (TNG), The End is the Beginning, The Impossible Box, Nepenthe (PIC)
First human drone to be de-assimilated by the Federation. After reestablishing his individualism on the Enterprise D, he was later returned by his choice to the Borg. Hugh unintentionally disrupted Borg systems and was left stranded. He was found by Lore, Data's brother, and kept under his control. He was found by Captain Picard and again was freed. Hugh was last working on the partially destroyed Borg cube under control of the Romulans. There, he worked to de-assimilate any that still could be saved. Hugh was killed there protecting his friends by a Romulan agent named Narissa.[4]


Character Actor Episodes
Ihat None Masks (TNG)
A masculine personality associated with a ceremonial neckplate with a wings-like design. Data assumes the personality of Ihat multiple times.[5][6][7][8]
Ilia[9] Persis Khambatta TMP
A female native of Delta IV, she was once involved in a romantic relationship with Willard Decker. As a Starfleet lieutenant, she was assigned to the Enterprise as navigator during the V'ger crisis. She was killed on the Bridge by one of V'ger's probes, but her appearance was later given to another V'ger probe, which was put aboard the Enterprise and assigned to learn about the human "infestation". However, this "Ilia probe" was constructed so perfectly by V'ger that it even contained the real Ilia's memories, which were deeply suppressed. Decker, however, was able to access those memories and establish a personal rapport with the probe. Later, when he learned that V'ger needed a "human element" to reveal its data – and, in so doing, stop its attack on Earth – he input the final code sequence manually, and, together with the Ilia probe, merged with V'ger. Ilia was later listed as "missing" in action.

Blood Oath (DS9),
Flashback (VOY)
Legendary Klingon warrior and Dahar Master whose exploits assured him a place in the Hall of Heroes, as told in G'Trok's poem "The Fall of Kang", an epic so important it is required reading at Starfleet Academy. Commander Kang once faced James Kirk in 2269, but later joined him to defeat their true enemy, an energy life form living off their shared hatred when trapped aboard the Enterprise as undying fodder. Captain Kang later squared off against Captain Sulu's USS Excelsior during the tensions preceding the Khitomer Conference in 2293. Kang had already met Curzon Dax by then on the Klingon colony Korvat, when Dax intentionally angered Kang to foster a bond—a calculated risk as he walked out during a long diatribe by the shocked Klingon. The Trill envoy became such a trusted family friend that Kang's firstborn, a boy, was made his godson and named "Dax" in his honor. The boy was among those later killed in revenge by the marauding Albino and fostered a blood oath of revenge in turn among Kor, Koloth, and Dax that was finally carried out in 2370 and led to Dahar Master Kang's death as he struck the death blow on his enemy. He also had defeated T'nag and his army with only colleagues Kor and Koloth, according to Kor's tale in 2372, and later feasted on the leader's heart.
Rayna Kapec Louise Sorel Requiem for Methuselah (TOS)
Android created in the perfect likeness of a young human woman
Kargan Christopher Collins A Matter of Honor (TNG)
Klingon captain of the IKS Pagh in 2365. He was short, heavyset, and demanded strict adherence to his authority. When he learned of the space organism eating away at a small section of the Pagh's hull, and that the Enterprise-D had directed an intense scanning beam at that specific area for two minutes, Kargan believed the Federation starship had landed a first strike against his vessel, so he vowed to attack and destroy the Enterprise-D. He suspected that Commander William Riker, his acting first officer, was complicit in the Enterprise-D's attack, so, to test his loyalty, Kargan demanded to know the surest method of attack against the Federation starship. When Riker refused to break his oath to Starfleet, Kargan relented, knowing at least that Riker wasn't a traitor or a coward. When Riker activated an emergency transponder given to him by Worf, Kargan, believing it was a weapon, demanded that Riker give it to him. Kargan was then beamed aboard the Enterprise-D, and Riker was able to assume command of the Pagh and defuse the brewing battle. Later, when Kargan was returned to the Pagh, Riker refused to resume his station, so Kargan slugged him and ordered him removed from the ship. That action allowed Kargan to save face and regain honor in the eyes of his officers, and likely averted an assassination attempt by Lieutenant Klag.

Starfleet captain and commanding officer of the USS Horatio who warned Picard about an alien invasion.
Edith Keeler Joan Collins The City on the Edge of Forever (TOS)
In 1930, during the Great Depression, Keeler was a social worker who died in a traffic accident. Centuries later, during a survey of the Guardian of Forever by the USS Enterprise, the ship's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Leonard McCoy, during a temporary bout of insanity brought on by an accidental injection of cordrazine, escaped into Earth's past. While there, he saved Keeler's life, which sparked a chain of events throughout the timeline, essentially changing history. In the altered timeline, Keeler, a passionate believer in peace, founded a movement which delayed the entry of the United States into World War II, thus paving the way for an Axis victory. Subsequently, Starfleet, the Federation, and the USS Enterprise were gone, but the proximity to the Guardian of Forever by the landing party allowed Captain James T. Kirk and First Officer Spock to follow McCoy into the past. Kirk and Spock were able to prevent McCoy from saving Keeler's life, thus restoring the timeline. These events were particularly stressful for Kirk, as he had fallen in love with Keeler.
Keenser[10] Deep Roy ST09
In 2258, in the alternate reality, Keenser worked with Montgomery Scott at an automated Federation outpost on Delta Vega. He was Scott's only company for months before Spock and James T.

The Romulans had "conditioned" Geordi La Forge to receive E-band transmissions through his VISOR. Kell carried the transmitter that instructed La Forge to kill Governor Vagh, but the attempt failed. Kell was taken into custody by Vagh.

In GEN Kirk is presumed dead; in fact he has been in the Nexus for 75 years when he is discovered by Jean-Luc Picard; at the end Kirk helps save the universe at the cost of his own life at the age of 137 years; a running gag in the film series is that although Kirk has many love affairs with women, he has only one child: his son David Marcus from an affair with Dr. Carol Marcus.

Klaa Todd Bryant TFF
Young Klingon captain of a Bird-of-Prey. He is also the gunner, as the tactical scope is mounted above his command chair and lowers like a periscope when he wants to fire the ship's disruptors. He is bored with shooting space garbage, such as Earth's Pioneer 10 probe, and longs for a bigger challenge to make a name for himself. When he learns that the Enterprise-A and Captain James T. Kirk are headed to Nimbus III, he arranges to intercept them. Klaa shoots at but misses the Enterprise, which suddenly engages warp speed. He follows her to Sha Ka Ree and this time scores a hit. He orders the Enterprise to surrender, but General Korrd calls him off and forces him to rescue Kirk from the surface of Sha Ka Ree. At a "cocktail party" aboard the Enterprise, he salutes Kirk as a fellow warrior. One of Klaa's more memorable features, besides his muscles, is his wild "shock rock" hair.[original research?] Noncanon: In the movie novelization, Klaa's Bird-of-Prey is called Okrona.
Klag Brian Thompson A Matter of Honor (TNG)
Klingon lieutenant and second officer of IKS Pagh in 2365. He challenged Commander William Riker's authority over him as first officer of Pagh during an officer-exchange program. After Riker demonstrated his authority over him, Klag agreed to take his orders and even respected the commander for his strength. Klag's father had once been captured in battle by Romulans, but not allowed to die. He eventually escaped, and now lives on Qo'noS, honorless, waiting for death by natural causes. For that reason, Klag refuses to see him. When Captain Kargan suspected that Riker was complicit in Enterprise-D's "attack" on Pagh, Klag disagreed and defended the commander.

When he learned that the criminals Korris, Konmel, and Kunivas had been rescued by the Enterprise-D, he plotted an intercept course and demanded that Captain Jean-Luc Picard turn them over when he arrived. By that time, however, all three Klingons had died from injuries or were killed during their escape attempt.
Kodos Arnold Moss The Conscience of the King (TOS)
Governor of Tarsus IV, also known as "the Executioner", who engaged in a large-scale eugenics program to counter the impending threat of starvation to the colony; later assumed the role of actor Anton Karidian leading a traveling Shakespeare company called the "Karidian Players".

Konmel Charles H. Hyman Heart of Glory (TNG)

In 2364, the trio stole the Talarian freighter Batris and subsequently destroyed the IKS T'Acog, which had been sent to retrieve them. After being rescued by the Enterprise-D, Korris and Konmel lied to Captain Jean-Luc Picard about the battle, but later revealed their true intentions to Lieutenant (j.g.) Worf. By then, Klingon commander K'near had apprised Picard of the Klingons' criminal status, so Picard detained them in the brig. They escaped, but Konmel was killed in a firefight with Enterprise-D security. To his credit, though, it took three phaser shots to bring him down.
Konsab None Face of the Enemy (TNG)
Romulan commander and former instructor of military history at the Romulan Intelligence Academy. His main theme consisted of theories on the differences between the military and the Tal Shiar. He believed that military officers must trust one another to function. (The dialogue was unclear, but Konsab may have been Commander Toreth's father. She described him as an "idealistic old man" and a "devoted citizen who only tried to speak his mind". The Tal Shiar dragged him from his home in the middle of the night, and Toreth never saw him again.)

The Sword of Kahless,
Once More unto the Breach (DS9)

John Colicos reprised the role in three Deep Space Nine episodes, as an ally and friend of Jadzia and Ezri Dax. Dahar Master Kor was killed in glorious battle by acting as a decoy to hold off the Jem'Hadar while the rest of the Klingon fleet escapes ("Once More Unto the Breach"). James Doohan voiced the character in the animated episode.

Korax Michael Pataki The Trouble with Tribbles (TOS)
Klingon first officer of the IKS Gro'th under Captain Koloth. He instigates the bar fight on Deep Space Station K-7 by taunting Montgomery Scott, first calling Captain Kirk a "tin-plated dictator with delusions of godhood", then calling the Enterprise a "sagging old rust bucket that's designed like a garbage scow".

Younger brother of Worf and also a son of Mogh who was not on Khitomer when the Klingon colony was destroyed by the Romulans. Years later, as a member of the Klingon Defense Force, Commander Kurn participated in an officer-exchange program with Starfleet that landed him aboard the USS Enterprise-D and reunited him with Worf ("Sins of the Father"). More than a year later, Captain Kurn commands his own K'Vort-class bird-of-prey and sides with Gowron during the Klingon Civil War ("Redemption II"). More than four years later, a ruined Kurn appears on starbase Deep Space Nine ("The Sons of Mogh") and asks Worf to kill him to restore his honor, which, along with his seat on the Klingon High Council and the House of Mogh's most valuable possessions, were stripped from him because Worf fought against Gowron during the chancellor's takeover of Cardassia Prime ("The Way of the Warrior").

Lazarus Robert Brown The Alternative Factor (TOS)
Lazarus-A was a Time traveling scientist who went insane when he found out his parallel universe counterpart Lazarus-B had found a way to go between two universes (One positive matter and one anti-matter). While Lazarus in the Positive Universe kept changing from Lazarus-A (Insane) to Lazarus-B (sane) the only place Both versions of Lazarus could meet together at the same time was within a negative magnetic Warp corridor between both universes (if they ever meet each other outside the magnetic Corridor within either universe both the meeting of the Positive matter and Negative Anti-matter would result in the destruction of both universes). After Captain Kirk learns the truth from Lazarus-B about Lazarus-A plan [who is trying to reach the anti-matter universe], Captain Kirk threw Lazarus-A into his Timespaceship/doorway into the magnetic corridor and then had his time spaceship/doorway destroyed by the Enterprise phasers; this action saved both universes since it also destroyed Lazarus-B Timeship/doorway as well-leaving both Lazarus A and Lazarus B trapped fighting forever in the magnetic corridor.

Starfleet commander and scientist who had opposed Data's entry into Starfleet on the grounds that Data "is not alive"; later tried and failed to have Data assigned to him for dis-assembly and research then started receiving self-evaluation reports from Data (cf. "Data's Day"). The backstory of Star Trek: Picard reveals that Maddox attempted to reconstruct Data's positronic brain, resulting in the creation of Dahj and Soji. Following the attack on Mars and subsequent banning of synthetics, Maddox disappeared, and by the time of the series his whereabouts are still unknown, until Raffi Musiker tracks him to a place called Freecloud.

Kirk enters the Bridge and takes Maltz prisoner at phaser-point, promising to "kill" him later for not piloting the Bird-of-Prey away from Genesis. Maltz may have been Kruge's tactical officer, as he counted down the kellicams before the Bird-of-Prey came within firing range of the Enterprise.

Kirk and Spock rescue her, and then show her firsthand evidence of the alien "entity" that has invaded the Enterprise and pitted Starfleet officers and Klingons against each other. She explains to Kirk that her people are hunters because there are poor planets in the Klingon system, and they must push outward to survive. She brokers a meeting between Kang and Kirk, which eventually leads to a truce. With "good spirits" from both parties, the alien entity flees the Enterprise.

Mitchell also "aimed a little blonde lab technician" at Kirk, who almost married her. Later, on the planet Dimorus, Mitchell almost died from a poisoned dart thrown by "rodent things" who were aiming for Kirk. In 2265 aboard the Enterprise, Mitchell is "zapped" by the Galactic Barrier, which turns his eyes glowing silver and grants him enhanced ESP powers.

He also promoted Scotty to "captain of engineering" and reassigned him to the USS Excelsior NX-2000.
