History[edit | edit source]

In 2270, Kor commanded the IKS Klothos during the Klingon Empire's victory over the Federation at the planet. (DS9 episode: "Once More Unto the Breach", ST website:, ST references: Klingon Bird of Prey Owners' Workshop Manual, The Klingon Art of War: Ancient Principles of Ruthless Honor)

This battle, the Battle of Caleb IV, had Federation starships lead by Admiral Issac Garrett attempt to drive off Klingons attacking communication arrays. However, it ended up being an ambush as Klingons made the first usage of a cloaking device on their starships. One starship captain, aided by the Temporal Agent Daniels, boarded the Klothos, sabotaged the ship and rescued the captured Federation ships before serving as a decoy to allow the other ships to escape. The ship was lost with all hands. (STO mission: "Battle of Caleb IV")
