Klingons (Klingon (TNG)) are a proud warrior race from the planet Qo'noS that values tradition, honor, and strength above all else. Klingon culture is rooted in aggression and military prowess, and they are a feared and respected race throughout the galaxy.
Typically Klingons can be distinguished by their cranial ridges, dark skin, and muscular build. Their internal organs feature multiple redundancies, allowing them to survive even the most severe battle wounds. The average Klingon lifespan can reach up to 150 years.

Klingons encountered in missions set in the 2260s and 2270s use the aesthetic from Star Trek: The Original Series which featured smooth headed Klingons (see Klingon augment virus for background information). This style is available for Klingon players to recreate, along with the uniform style.
Klingon (Discovery) is a playable subrace following the redesigned Klingons from Star Trek: Discovery. Missions set in the 2250s, or otherwise featuring Klingons from that era, follow this aesthetic. "Regular" Klingons, and the TOS aesthetic, are classified in-game as "Klingon TNG".
However, although players can create a Starfleet-aligned Klingon once they have bought the race from the zen store, they only have access to the TNG subrace. They do not gain access to the DSC subrace as KDF players do.
