In the Kelvin timeline, Sho'Tokh was a 23rd century Klingon albino male. In the 2260s decade, Sho'Tokh served as commanding officer of the Klingon Empire battlecruiser IKS Chonnaq. (TOS - Manifest Destiny comic: "Issue 1")


Sho'Tokh was born on Qo'noS and left to himself as an infant because of his albinism. Despite his status as outcast and freak, he survived and group in the battle-slums of the First City, eventually earning a commission in the Klingon Defense Force. (TOS - Manifest Destiny comic: "Issue 4")

By the 2260s, Commander Sho'Tok had attained command of the battlecruiser IKS Chonnaq.

In the year 2262, Sho'Tok personally led a landing party to a technologically primitive settlement. The defenseless aliens stood no chance against the KDF troops. A flag was placed among the huts, and the planet claimed in the name of the Klingon Empire.

A month later, the Chonnaq intercepted the Federation flagship USS Enterprise at another planet. (TOS - Manifest Destiny comic: "Issue 1")

While Sho'Tok's second in command, Divash, led troops on the surface that captured an Enterprise landing party, Sho'Tokh and his warriors donned environmental suits and, assisted by D4-class birds-of=prey, boarded the outer hull of the Enterprise. Captain James T. Kirk and his forces fought the Klingons on the outer hull but were forced to retreat. (TOS - Manifest Destiny comic: "Issue 2")

Divash made a deal with Doctor Leonard McCoy - spare his landing party's lives for help in her mutiny against Commander Sho'Tokh. They made a pact and Divash returned with her captives to the Chonnaq. Sho'Tokh's troops killed Kirk's guard Kai, and reached the starship's bridge. (TOS - Manifest Destiny comic: "Issue 3")

To his officers, Sho'Tokh declared his intention of forming a new empire of his own, starting with the Chonnaq and Enterprise. His troop command addressed Sho'Tokh as general then.

Kirk and his officers retook the Enterprise. Sho'Tokh and Kirk fought about the military shuttle until the captain knocked him out. Kirk returned to the Enterprise and spoke with Commander Divash, in command of the Chonnaq. They returned their respective troops, and Divash promised that Sho'Tokh would face humiliation on Qo'noS by the High Council of the Klingon Empire.

Soon after, a defeated Sho'Tokh sat on the floor of a cell while the aliens the Chonnaq had conquered continued to chafe under Imperial rule, and the Enterprise crew mourned their lost ones. (TOS - Manifest Destiny comic: "Issue 4")

Alternate timelineEdit

In an alternate timeline where Kirk was raised by the Klingons, Commander Sho'Tokh served as loyal first officer to the Orphan, the Human commander of the IKS Chonnaq. Sho'Tokh advised his captain during a trap they had laid for the USS Enterprise of Christopher Pike in the Lelas system. With a computer virus, the Chonnaq temporarily disabled critical systems on the Enterprise and began an attack run. (TOS - IDIC comic: "Part 1"

In another timeline created by the intervention of Gary Mitchell that was later undone,[1], another Enterprise arrived during a chronotonic storm and helped defend Pike's Enterprise. (TOS - IDIC comic: "Part 1")

The storm intensified, transposing the vessels into a realm filled with Enterprises. A cybernetic Enterprise disabled the Chonnaq and transported the Orphan away but left Sho'Tokh and the rest of the crew behind. (TOS - IDIC comic: "Part 2")
