A definite case of TropesAreNotBad, as the Ferasans have had a chance to distance themselves a bit from their source material and become a unique race: In this continuity they're the progenitors of the Caitians, who broke from Ferasan culture over genetic engineering (the Ferasans were for it, the Caitians were against).

* RoleReprisal: Starting with "Sphere of Influence", Creator/MichaelDorn voices him where he was unvoiced before, and his in-game model is an InkSuitActor version of Dorn-as-Worf.

* GoodAllAlong: At least by Klingon standards. B'vat and Torg were the real evil in his regime.



* NotSoAboveItAll: Has a childlike enthusiasm for the ''Age of Discovery'' simulations and is actually angry if you don't do them with him. He often comments about the things he tries to do in them like kill J'Ula despite it being impossible by historical accuracy.



* WorthyOpponent: ''Finally'' develops a respect for the Federation due to the ''Age of Discovery'' simulations showing them battling his fellow Klingons head on, particularly Landry and her girlfriend Patel.






* TheDragon: To J'mpok. [[spoiler: It's a good thing he dies early in the game.]] The Klingon PC more or less takes over in that role after that.
* FourStarBadass: Was a Klingon General before he became a Ambassador, which is not that unusual in Klingon politics.

* DirtyCoward: Martok accuses J'mpok of being this for refusing to fully commit the Empire to fighting the Hur'q. It is only J'mpok's authorizing of a volunteer expeditionary force led by Martok that prevents the General from pulling a KlingonPromotion on him, though Martok still isn't entirely satisfied.

* GoodAllAlong:



* NotHisSled: J'mpok was believed to have defeated Martok unfairly due to his supporter, B'vat, being the arbiter of the challenge. Most players assumed J'mpok was TheUsurper and defeated him using dirty tricks. [[spoiler: Martok indicates that he lost fair and square.]]



** The fact that he is the one who orders [[spoiler: Martok rescued]] despite them being political enemies.



* TheUsurper: Martok was a well-beloved character among Klingon fans (and still is), so his death at J'mpok's hands as well as reversal of many of Martok's policies, gave J'mpok this reputation. [[spoiler: Martok, amusingly, believes that J'mpok is the Chancellor fair and square.]]



* WhatTheHellHero: See most of the above. Even Worf thinks he's unhinged, and Martok's widow Lady Sirella has sworn vengeance against him. Any member of the House of Martok ''will'' kill him if they can find a reason besides plain old revenge to do so.

!General Rodek, formerly Kurn, son of Mogh

-->Played by Creator/TonyTodd

Leader of the Tzenkethi assault force designed to stop the militaristic group from wrecking havoc across the universe. He was formerly Worf's brother before he was surgically altered and had his mind wiped to restore his honor.

* BloodKnight: He seems particularly excited by the prospect of battle, even by Klingon standards.
* FourStarBadass:
** He's a General, which, in gameplay terms, means he's somewhere between Level 55 and 60. He's also one of the highest-ranked returning characters, surpassing Tuvok, who was a Rear Admiral.
** He also wears a Klingon Honor Guard uniform, which means he's [[ElitesAreMoreGlamorous even more badass]] than your typical Klingon officer.
* RoleReprisal: Voiced by Tony Todd, the actor who played the character in ''TNG'' and ''[=DS9=]''.
* WasItAllALie: [[spoiler:In "Brushfire", Martok talks to Rodek as if he's still Kurn, not realizing the changes Worf had done to him. It shakes him to the core and he decides to hunt down answers.]]

!General (formerly Chancellor) Martok

-->Played by Creator/JGHertzler

Once a general for the Klingon Defense Force during the Dominion War, Martok became Chancellor after Worf slew Gowron in honorable combat and Worf passed the role to him, leading the Klingons and the other forces to victory. During the Klingon/Gorn conflict that would start the Federation-Klingon War, J'mpok and Martok confronted each other in secret and only J'mpok emerged, with Martok presumed dead... or was he?

* BadassBoast: Is prone to taunting his opponents with these in battle.
--> '''Martok:''' "You tried to end me once before, it won't go any better for you now!"
* BadassInDistress: [[spoiler:He's been held captive by the [[Film/StarTrekInsurrection Son'a]] thanks to Torg.]]
* BareHandedBladeBlock: [[spoiler:He stops being cut down by Torg by catching his ''bat'leth'' with his bare hands.]]
* CoolSword: One of the available rewards for completing the mission "Scylla and Charybdis" is a mek'leth sword called the "Butcher's Mek'leth" (based on the nom de guerre given to Martok by the Tzenkethi after the Battle of Tzenketh III) with the crest of Martok's house on the butt of the blade.
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler:As it turned out, Martok was revived using metaphasic radiation, healing his wounds. Torg would continuously beat him to the edge of death, then let the radiation revive him.]]
* KlingonPromotion: [[spoiler:Martok slays Torg in battle and takes command of his flagship. Torg's crew is quite happy to let him do so.]]

to:

[[folder:Crew [[folder: Galera]]
[[quoteright:250:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/galera_3565.png]]
A half-Bajoran member of Klingon Intelligence who acts as the main quest giver for KDF player characters in "The Delta Quadrant", the first episode of ''Delta Rising''.
----

* HalfBreedDiscrimination: Mentions traveling between two worlds and belonging in neither. But in Klingon Intelligence, ''everyone'' is an outsider in their own way, so she feels K'Men gave her a purpose in life.
* NonHumanHumanoidHybrid: She's half-Klingon, half-Bajoran, apparently the product of a brief, ill-advised love affair.
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: When she's telling the KDF player about The Doctor, she sounds like she's ready to bust out laughing over how silly it seems that a hologram is now a fully-fledged member of Starfleet. She has to calm down before talking about the mission.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: B'Eler]]
A Klingon engineering officer assigned first to Klingon Intelligence at Ganalda Station, then to [[spoiler:House Pegh]]. Openly lesbian with a committed mate.
----

* CallBack: Her {{backstory}} includes a reference to the ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode "[[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS03E03TheHouseOfQuark The House of Quark]]": her mother was apparently a servant in the House of D'Ghor before Chancellor Gowron discommendated them for D'Ghor's dishonorable attempt to destroy the House of Kozak (later the House of Grilka), [[spoiler:and then being one-upped in bravery by Quark, of all people]].
* TheChick: By her own admission she's not much of a warrior, but she's a ''hell'' of an engineer. She also comes off as something akin to the LipstickLesbian to her mate Trevana's ButchLesbian (Trevana acts much more like a stereotypical Klingon warrior).
* IndyPloy: Improvises a way to [[spoiler:eliminate an Iconian's NighInvulnerability]] using the Omega generators you were sent in to sabotage.
* KlingonScientistsGetNoRespect: By her own admission she's not much of a warrior; her skills lie in engineering. "House Pegh" demonstrates exactly what the ''[=Bortasqu'=]'''s chief engineer Tarol is complaining about when she says that the engineers do all the work and the warriors get all the credit. [[spoiler:Captain Kagran gives Kahless all the credit for wounding T'Ket despite the fact he wasn't even able to dent it before B'Eler {{technobabble}}d away its NighInvulnerability.]]
* StraightGay: If she hadn't explicitly mentioned it in optional dialogue in her first appearance one might not have known. She was supposedly originally written to be male but there was a miscommunication.
* UpThroughTheRanks: Joined the KDF as a common soldier before being commissioned as an engineering officer in Klingon Intelligence.
* WrenchWench: She's an engineering officer. In her first appearance she adapts a stolen Federation weapon, the Synchronic Distortion Prototype Rifle, to work on Devidians. Later she comes up with the IndyPloy to [[spoiler:use the Omega generators to make T'Ket vulnerable to a sword]].

[[folder: Kahless II]]
[[quoteright:274:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kahless.png]]

The clone of the legendary Klingon figure Kahless the Unforgettable [[spoiler:and head of the House of Pegh]]. He is ostensibly the Klingon Emperor but has no real power. Instead, he serves as the head of the Klingon religion and serves as a figurehead monarch. Disappears pre-game to hunt down the missing Sword of Kahless. [[spoiler: Ultimately ends up being killed by an Iconian.]]
----

* AuthorityInNameOnly: Deliberately so, as a result of the agreement that restored the monarchy. As your average modern-day constitutional monarch, he's just a figurehead as Emperor; J'mpok and the High Council hold the real power. It gives him time, though, to do whatever he wishes.
* BadassInDistress: ... Despite which, in his first appearance chronologically he has to be bailed out by the KDF player character after his flagship comes under attack by the Breen. And then he has to get bailed out ''again'' by B'Eler when he challenges an [[spoiler:Iconian]] with a sword and can't even dent it until [[spoiler:she {{technobabble}}s away its NighInvulnerability. And then he dies anyway because he was too busy babbling about how honorable he was to kill it.]]
* CloneJesus: His origin. The equivalent to the Klingon Catholic Church manufactures him from some millennium old blood samples.
* DamningWithFaintPraise: Worf basically says he's a terrible warrior but a decent enough guy in the most tactful way possible.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:T'Ket runs him through bare-handed.]]
* LeeroyJenkins: Goes charging off the plan mid-mission babbling about "glorious battle" [[spoiler:and dies horribly against an opponent that outmatched him from beginning to end]].
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Kahless II has a lot of flaws (see MilesGloriosus) but he genuinely seems to possess supernatural powers of some kind. Which is strange enough in Star Trek as his advice to take a VisionQuest to defeat the Fek'Ihri seems to pan out despite them possibly being technological constructs. There's almost no other way to explain why their attacks on the Klingons cease after the Player Character defeats their leader in a JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind.
* MilesGloriosus: He pretty much trades entirely on the reputation of the guy he was cloned from; his actual usefulness isn't anything to write home about. Worf clobbered him in his debut episode "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS6E21RightfulHeir Rightful Heir]]", [[AuthorityInNameOnly he has no actual power as Emperor of Qo'noS]], he has to be rescued from the Breen by the PlayerCharacter, and then [[spoiler:can't even scratch T'Ket until B'Eler {{technobabble}}s away the Iconian's NighInvulnerability. He's such a non-threat that T'Ket also pretty blatantly ignores him until he implies T'Ket's scared of him, at which point s/he kicks his ass until B'Eler does her thing. [[KlingonScientistsGetNoRespect And then Kagran gives HIM all the credit anyway.]]]]
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Worf is apparently someone Kahless II trusts with his life while Worf seems almost embarrassed by him. It makes sense given Worf is a RealMenLoveJesus type and Kahless II is someone he views as a gross aberration despite having nothing against the man himself.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Kahless found the original Sword of Kahless and played an instrumental role in stopping the Fek'Ihri. [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Probably.]] However, nobody is ever going to compare him favorably to the man he was cloned from.
* RememberTheNewGuy: The clone Kahless only turned up in one episode of TNG (season 6's "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS6E21RightfulHeir Rightful Heir]]") and apart from that barely got an offhand mention in [=DS9=] (season 4's "[[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS04E09TheSwordOfKahless The Sword of Kahless]]"). And in STO his only previous appearance is a brief mention in the Path to 2409 and as a supporting character in the KDF-exclusive Fek'Ihri arc, so Federation and Romulan players unfamiliar with every episode of the TV shows are likely to end up going, who's this guy and why is he suddenly important?
* ShootTheShaggyDog[=/=]StupidSacrifice: Hey, Kahless, dude, really? Kill the [[spoiler:Iconian]] first, ''then'' monologue about honor. [[spoiler:Oops, too late, you're dead. And to add insult to injury, the Klingons leading the mission panic, leave his sword where he dropped it, and completely bail on completing the mission objective.]]
* SoProudOfYou: He's quite proud of how awesome you were in stopping the Fek'Ihri invasion that he makes a copy of the Sword of Kahless for you to wield.
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:Hey, Kahless, don't you think you should ''finish off'' your self-teleporting, Klingon High Council-vaporizing opponent before you start gloat--Wow, you walked right into that one.]]
* UltimateBlacksmith: Say what you will about the guy's martial talents but he creates an Epic Bat'leth which remains useful even up to Level 60.

Despite which, in his first appearance chronologically he has to be bailed out by the KDF player character after his flagship comes under attack by the Breen. And then he has to get bailed out ''again'' by B'Eler when he challenges an [[spoiler:Iconian]] with a sword and can't even dent it until [[spoiler:she {{technobabble}}s away its NighInvulnerability. And then he dies anyway because he was too busy babbling about how honorable he was to kill it.]]\n* CloneJesus: His origin. The equivalent to the Klingon Catholic Church manufactures him from some millennium old blood samples. \n* DamningWithFaintPraise: Worf basically says he's a terrible warrior but a decent enough guy in the most tactful way possible.\n* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:T'Ket runs him through bare-handed.]]\n* LeeroyJenkins: Goes charging off the plan mid-mission babbling about "glorious battle" [[spoiler:and dies horribly against an opponent that outmatched him from beginning to end]].\n* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Kahless II has a lot of flaws (see MilesGloriosus) but he genuinely seems to possess supernatural powers of some kind. Which is strange enough in Star Trek as his advice to take a VisionQuest to defeat the Fek'Ihri seems to pan out despite them possibly being technological constructs. There's almost no other way to explain why their attacks on the Klingons cease after the Player Character defeats their leader in a JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind. \n* MilesGloriosus: He pretty much trades entirely on the reputation of the guy he was cloned from; his actual usefulness isn't anything to write home about. Worf clobbered him in his debut episode "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS6E21RightfulHeir Rightful Heir]]", [[AuthorityInNameOnly he has no actual power as Emperor of Qo'noS]], he has to be rescued from the Breen by the PlayerCharacter, and then [[spoiler:can't even scratch T'Ket until B'Eler {{technobabble}}s away the Iconian's NighInvulnerability. He's such a non-threat that T'Ket also pretty blatantly ignores him until he implies T'Ket's scared of him, at which point s/he kicks his ass until B'Eler does her thing. [[KlingonScientistsGetNoRespect And then Kagran gives HIM all the credit anyway.]]]]\n* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Worf is apparently someone Kahless II trusts with his life while Worf seems almost embarrassed by him. It makes sense given Worf is a RealMenLoveJesus type and Kahless II is someone he views as a gross aberration despite having nothing against the man himself.\n* OvershadowedByAwesome: Kahless found the original Sword of Kahless and played an instrumental role in stopping the Fek'Ihri. [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Probably.]] However, nobody is ever going to compare him favorably to the man he was cloned from. \n* RememberTheNewGuy: The clone Kahless only turned up in one episode of TNG (season 6's "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS6E21RightfulHeir Rightful Heir]]") and apart from that barely got an offhand mention in [=DS9=] (season 4's "[[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS04E09TheSwordOfKahless The Sword of Kahless]]"). And in STO his only previous appearance is a brief mention in the Path to 2409 and as a supporting character in the KDF-exclusive Fek'Ihri arc, so Federation and Romulan players unfamiliar with every episode of the TV shows are likely to end up going, who's this guy and why is he suddenly important?\n* ShootTheShaggyDog[=/=]StupidSacrifice: Hey, Kahless, dude, really? Kill the [[spoiler:Iconian]] first, ''then'' monologue about honor. [[spoiler:Oops, too late, you're dead. And to add insult to injury, the Klingons leading the mission panic, leave his sword where he dropped it, and completely bail on completing the mission objective.]]\n* SoProudOfYou: He's quite proud of how awesome you were in stopping the Fek'Ihri invasion that he makes a copy of the Sword of Kahless for you to wield.\n* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:Hey, Kahless, don't you think you should ''finish off'' your self-teleporting, Klingon High Council-vaporizing opponent before you start gloat--Wow, you walked right into that one.]]\n* UltimateBlacksmith: Say what you will about the guy's martial talents but he creates an Epic Bat'leth which remains useful even up to Level 60.\n[[/folder]]



* OverrankedSoldier: Inverted.

* RememberTheNewGuy: As a consequence of the {{Orwellian Retcon}}s of his earlier appearances, his apology to the Federation player character at the end of "The Cure Applied" no longer makes sense.



* SpoiledBrat: Despite the fact that she's a 35-year-old woman with command of a combatant ship ([[TierInducedScrappy if you can call a Bortasqu' a combatant ship]]), Koren quickly devolves into what amounts to feet stomping and whining. This can be seen when the Joint Command team finds [[spoiler:the Jenolan Dyson Sphere]] and Koren throws a fit because the Klingons don't have something cool, which turned into a MexicanStandoff with Shon and Jarok that Tuvok was barely able to defuse. It get worse when [[spoiler:you go save Qo'noS from the Undine]] and she spends the opening moments of the battle whining about the lack of Starfleet ships. And then continues to whine about it almost every time she opens her mouth for the remainder of the battle, up until [[spoiler:Captain Shon makes a seemingly suicidal attack run on the planet killer in a desperate bid to save her homeworld]].

** A bit of a downplayed trope example as J'mpok is also in an IronicHell as events force him to discommendate his closest ally in House Torg and leave him without his strongest supporter in Ambassador B'vat. They then force the Federation and Klingon Empire to ally against the Iconians, which effectively ruins his entire strategy of defeating the Federation.
