Kunivas was a male Klingon officer in the Klingon Defense Force in the 24th century.
Kunivas, along with Konmel and Korris, became disillusioned with the attitude of peace within the Empire, and what he perceived to be the loss of the traditional warrior ways of his people.
Along with Korris and Konmel, he stole the Batris, a Talarian freighter, and was involved in the destruction of the IKS T'Acog. Kunivas was severely injured in this conflict. Though he was rescued from the damaged freighter by the USS Enterprise-D, he died soon after. (TNG: "Heart of Glory")
Kunivas was part of Commander William T. Riker's memories while being infected on the surface of Surata IV and treated in sickbay. (TNG: "Shades of Gray")
