An illusion of Fek'lhr


A closer view of Fek'lhr's face

Fek'lhr was a figure in Klingon mythology, a humanoid beast, resembling a feral, monstrous Klingon, who was the guardian of Gre'thor.

In 2367, a con artist claiming herself to be Ardra briefly appeared as Fek'lhr, using holographic technology. (TNG: "Devil's Due")

It was insinuated by Ardra that Fek'lhr is roughly the Klingon version of a devil. This is probably not a proper equivalent, however, as Kang says in TOS: "Day of the Dove" that Klingon beliefs do not recognize a devil archetype. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion) Fek'lhr is not considered a deity, either, because DS9: "Homefront" establishes that Klingon legend states that the Klingons killed their gods.

The IKS Fek'lhr was named after Fek'lhr. (DS9: "Image in the Sand", "The Siege of AR-558")

When B'Elanna Torres entered Gre'thor, she was surprised to not see a pit of despair and Fek'lhr torturing the dishonored. (VOY: "Barge of the Dead")

Background information Edit

Rehearsing Devils Due

Tom Magee, as the Fek'lhr, rehearses his lines for "Devil's Due" with Director Tom Benko

The Fek'lhr seen in "Devil's Due" was portrayed by Tom Magee.

It is unknown if there is an etymological or mythological relationship between Fek'lhr and the Fek'Ihri, an ancient enemy of Kahless, mentioned by Worf in "The Sword of Kahless".

In Star Trek: Armada, Star Trek: Armada II and Star Trek: Starfleet Command III, Fek'lhr is a class of Klingon starship.

In Star Trek Online, the Fek'Ihri strongly resemble Fek'lhr. They are real creatures from outside normal space that attacked the Klingon Empire in ancient times and were commanded by Molor during his reign; it may have inspired the legend. They have now returned to invade the Empire, and Fek'lhr himself appears as the final enemy of the Fek'Ihri campaign. After scanning Fek'lhr's corpse, the player's Bridge Officers notice traces of Hur'q technology.
