Gorkon was a prominent Klingon politician in the late 23rd century. The Klingon spelling of the name is ghorqon.


Gorkon, son of Toq, of the house of Makok, was Chancellor in 2293 when the Klingon moon Praxis exploded. With the Empire left in disarray, Gorkon sued for peace with the Federation. En-route to Earth for the peace negotiation, Gorkon was assassinated by a team of Federation, Klingon, Romulan and Vulcan conspirators. His daughter, Azetbur, succeeded to his position as Chancellor and carried on the peace negotiations(1).

At a dinner reception about Enterprise, Gorkon stated that "You have not experienced Shakespeare until you have read him in the original Klingon."
