The title Lord or Lady is a term usually used to address individuals holding certain positions, such as noblemen. The term is also used as an alternate term for the Christian "God" (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars"), and as a general honorific used by the Androids of Mudd for those they serve. (TOS: "I, Mudd").

The title was historically used on Earth for noblemen in some Nation states. Some figures holding the title of lord on Earth were Lord Byron, Lord Halifax, Lord Nelson. Additionally, a fictional 19th century Lord Burleigh appeared in Kathryn Janeway's Holonovel Janeway Lambda one.

Troyian ambassador Petri was referred to as Lord. (TOS: "Elaan of Troyius"). An insane Garth of Izar insisted on being called "Lord Garth" while he temporarily took control of the Asylum on Elba II (TOS: "Whom Gods Destroy"). Klingon commander Kruge was also referred to by his crew, and Valkris as "my Lord". (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

According to the script, Kruge was described as "a Klingon War Lord", thus explaining why he was referred to by this title. The title may also imply that was of noble descent, such as a member of the Imperial Family or other prominent House. However, there is no clear indication of aristocracy amongst Klingons and the concept would appear incompatible with their spartan warrior culture.
