INTRODUCTION

Encompassing nearly half a million square light years of space, the Klingon Empire is a large interstellar empire dominated by a single species. The government is largely oligarchical with the Emperor as little more than a figurehead for the most powerful families of the Empire.

Relations between the miltant Klingon Empie and its neighbors have been mixed. First contact between the Klingon Empire and the United Federation of Planets in 2218 led to decades of war before the Organians imposed peace and a Neutral Zone between the two powers in 2267. Following the imposed peace, the Klingons entered into an alliance with the Romulan Star Empire in 2268 which resulted in the exchance of military technology and spacecraft designs. Relations between the UFP and Klingon Empire continued to be poor until Federation assistance in the clean-up of the disasterous explosion of the Klingon moon Praxis. In 2293 the environment of peaceful cooperation following the accident, the Khitomer Accords were signed, demilitarizing the Neutral Zone. Relations between the Klingon Empire and Federation continued to improve and alliance was finally agreed upon in 2352 after a period of mutual hostility against the Romulans.

Federation interference in the First Klingon Civil War of 2367 would place a strain on the alliance. In 2411, the House of Duras, losers in the Civil War of 2367, seized control of the Empire resulting in the brief Second Klingon Civil War which ended with his being deposed in 2412. The new Klingon High Council declined to sign a formal peace accord with the Federation and has remained neutral since.
