Species Name: Klingon

Origin: Qo’noS, Kronos

Description: Klingons are arguably the most famous alien species in all of Star Trek history. Klingons are characterized by their strong sense of pride and a rather short temper. In their culture, a Klingon is only considered worthy of honor if he/she proves him/herself in battle. Great physical ability and fighting skills trump all other characteristics. In Voyager,  the only Klingon on board is B’ Elanna Torres, who is half-human, half-Klingon. As a result, B’ Elanna has a bad temper but still some control. For further description of B’ Elanna, see Characters – B’ Elanna Torres on this site.
