A list of the Klingon personnel of the IKS Amar in the 2270s.

Captain Edit

The Amar captain

This Klingon captain was the commanding officer of the Amar, the lead vessel of a squadron of Klingon battle cruisers that attempted to intercept and was later destroyed by V'ger. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture)

The Klingon captain was portrayed by Mark Lenard, who is better known as Sarek, Spock's father. He was initially offered the role via a phone call from Gene Roddenberry. "
I never thought of playing a Klingon," Lenard admitted, "but I said, 'Sure, I would love to.'" The actor found his makeup extremely uncomfortable while playing the part. (Starlog #117, p. 48)
According to at least one version of the script, the Klingon captain was called "Commander Barak". The novel Forgotten History also names him Barak.
The Star Trek Customizable Card Game gives his name as Krase. This was obviously meant as an in-joke, as it is an anagram of the name of Lenard's better-known role of Sarek.
