Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki
For the mirror universe counterpart, see Khitomer (mirror).

Khitomer was a planet in the Klingon Empire, near the border with the United Federation of Planets.


Mapmaker K'tark placed Khitomer just outside Klingon territory on his 2266 Imperial Klingon Empire star chart. (ST reference: Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library)

Khitomer was the site of a peace conference convened in 2293 between the Klingons and the Federation. As a result of this conference, the Khitomer Accords were drafted, creating an alliance between the two powers. (ST movie: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

The Klingon settlement on Khitomer was attacked in 2346. Many of the inhabitants of the colony died, including Worf's parents Mogh and Kaasin. Ja'Rod, the father of Duras, was also killed in the attack. A number of other Klingons were captured by the Romulans during the attack. (TNG episodes: "Sins of the Father", "Birthright")

The The Transinium Challenge video game lists the destroyed colony as the "Federation Outpost Khitomer".

Eventually the settlement at Khitomer was rebuilt. William Ross met Gowron at Khitomer prior to late 2375. (DS9 episode: "When It Rains...")

Khitomer served as the site of a summit in 2376 among the allies of the Dominion War. (TNG - The Brave and the Bold, Book Two novella: The Final Artifact)

Borg attacks[]

During an invasion by the Borg Collective in 2381, Khitomer was one of five simultaneous attacks from Borg cubes, along with Korvat and Federation starbases 157, 234, and 343. The Klingon High Council felt the invasion was a purely internal Federation matter, until the USS Arimathea, USS Constant, and USS Ranger sacrificed themselves to save the planet. Governor Talgar, who had watched the skies from Khitomer City, delivered Starfleet's sensor readings to Chancellor Martok, who was able to convince the rest of the High Council to devote Klingon Defense Force assets to the fight. (ST - Destiny novel: Gods of Night)

Though saved from the Borg once, this planet was again attacked and fell to the Borg Invasion of 2381. None of the population survived this attack, including presumably Governor Talgar. (ST - Destiny novel: Lost Souls)

Romulan takeover[]

At some point between August of 2381 and 2382, the Romulan Star Empire took control of this planet from the Klingon Empire and established an outpost and a mining station in the Khitomer system (ST video game: Infinite).

Against the wishes of the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire took back control of Khitomer from the Romulan Star Empire in 2382. This action upset galactic politics in 2383 even though the extremely recent Romulan claim had lasted less than a year.

In 2385, Martok demanded that all non-Klingons leave Khitomer. Due to the large population on this planet, many ships were required. (STO website: The Path to 2409)

Republic summit[]

In 2409 Khitomer was the site of an international summit on the political status of D'Tan's Romulan Republic movement. The Klingon Empire, the Federation, and the Romulan Star Empire all sent delegations to the planet. The Tal Shiar under Colonel Hakeev tried to break up the summit, planting multiple bombs and undercover operatives in Starfleet uniforms in an attempt to paint the Republic as untrustworthy. His ship IRW Khnial was discovered in orbit by the Virinat Survivor, who drove him off with help from Captain Ja'rod of the IKS Kang. The Survivor then beamed back to the conference hall and helped Commander Temer defuse Hakeev's bombs.

During the conference itself Ambassador Woldan stated that he did not believe the Republic was a worthy ally, at which moment a final bomb was discovered behind him on the podium. Temer rushed forward, extended his personal deflector shield around the device to shield Woldan, and was killed instantly when it exploded. This act motivated the Federation and Klingon Empire to officially recognize the Romulan Republic as a sovereign political entity, and they began supplying military and humanitarian aid to the fledgling government on New Romulus. (STO - From the Ashes mission: "Turning Point")

Alternate timelines[]

In a version of the Kelvin timeline, Khitomer was a world within the Klingon Empire. In the year] 2261. construction of a colony was underway. On stardate 2261.147, a Romulan fleet led by L'Nar attacked and destroyed the settlement while it was still under construction. The USS Enterprise responded to the Klingon signal about the attack. A landing party led by James T. Kirk visited the site but found no survivors. Kor captured them. While the Enterprise fled, Kirk and his officers were brought to Qo'noS as prisoners. The brazen attack led to the Khitomer Conflict between the three major powers. (TOS - The Khitomer Conflict comic: "Part 1")

By 2262, Khitomer was a major location within the Empire. The system was patrolled by the Klingon Defense Force but open to Klingon traders and Independents from the Neutral Zone. A Klingon space station, Nu'Daq Station, was in place in the planet's orbit. (ST video game: Fleet Command mission: "Excess")

Kras was stuck at the station when Mokgar sabotaged his ship's impulse engines. Kras hired an Independent to track the Klingon outlaw. The Independent ship found Mokgar at Fek'lhr, and the destruction of Mogkar's ship satisfied Kras. (ST video game: Fleet Command mission: "The Noose")

Kang hired an Independent to seek and destroy a Federation informant operating in the system. (ST video game: Fleet Command mission: "Eyes Open")

In that year, the Klingon ambassador Kuron was ferried by an Independent ship from Nu'Daq Station to Deneva for diplomatic meeting with Starfleet. (ST video game: Fleet Command mission: "And the Blood Was Ankle Deep")
