The Klingon Empire is first and foremost a race of warriors. Their legendary devotion to honor combined with their prowess in combat has made them greatly feared and respected across the galaxy.
The Klingon Empire was the official state of the Klingon people. It was founded in the 9th century by Kahless the Unforgettable, who first united the Klingon homeworld of Qo’noS. Since then, the Klingon Empire expanded its sphere of influence by conquering numerous systems and incorporating them. This made the Empire a major power in its region of the galaxy, as of the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th centuries.
