'''Apella''' was a [[Neuralese]] man from the [[planet]] [[Neural]] in the [[23rd century]]. He was a [[merchant]] and handyman who allied himself with the [[Klingon Empire]] to become [[governor]] of the [[city]] of {{dis|Victory|city}}.

In early [[2267]], after a bad afternoon failing to trap a [[rabbit]]-like creature and being chased by a beast, Apella was approached by {{dis|Krell|23rd century}}, who identified himself as a traveler from a foreign land called the [[Klingon Empire]]. Krell became Apella's mentor and gave him a [[Klingon flintlock musket]], a significant advance over the [[bow]]s and [[arrow]]s then used on the planet. Krell would return several times over the next ten [[month]]s to secretly arm Apella and defy the [[Organian Peace Treaty]]. ({{c|TOS|sub=Klingons: Blood Will Tell|The Order of Things}})

Apella became the leader of his village, directing his people toward the [[Klingon]] way of life and conflict with the neighboring [[Hill People]]. In [[December]] [[2267]], Krell's presence was exposed by [[James T. Kirk]], forcing the Klingon to depart. Kirk armed the Hill People with [[weapon]]s equal to those of Apella.

Two months later, when Krell reappeared, Apella's village was in flames. Apella asked for further [[technology]]. Krell refused, but proclaimed that Apella and his villagers had become true [[warrior]]s. ({{c|TOS|sub=Klingons: Blood Will Tell|The Order of Things}})

However, eventually Krell returned and established a small [[outpost]] to export [[leutrinium]] [[metal]]. Apella grew power-hungry and united 20 tribes, greatly expanding his village into the [[city]] of {{dis|Victory|city}}, which he named for its psychological value after a word [[Nona]] spoke before her death. [[Governor]] Apella was responsible for maintaining a production quota for the [[mining|mine]] and smelting plant using [[slavery|slave]] labor. He saw himself as a partner to Krell.
 
 
In [[2273]], Krell spotted Kirk in surveillance footage and singled him out to Apella as representing forces against the Klingon Empire. Apella ordered a hunting party to capture Kirk but it failed, and Apella began to realize he was a puppet who would never earn the respect he wanted. When Apella discovered Kirk among newly-captured slaves, he kept that knowledge from Krell. A week later, hundreds of [[Freeholder]]s broke through the perimeter of the mine to free the slaves. During the fighting, Kirk convinced Apella that Neural's resources belonged to Neural, not the Klingon Empire. He joined with Tyree to call an end to the fighting and order the Klingons off the planet. Apella rode with Kirk aboard a Klingon [[freighter]] which Kirk used to destroy the smelting plant. Apella and Tyree agreed to rebuild the facility in a spirit of cooperation, using the leutrinium as a resource for interstellar trade. ({{n|TOS|Serpents in the Garden}})
