Mogh was a male Klingon citizen of the Klingon Empire in the early 24th century. He was the father of Worf and Kurn.

Mogh was influential in the Empire. He helped Huraga's House during their blood feud with the House of Duras. He was also a friend of Noggra and Lorgh. (DS9: "The Way of the Warrior", "Sons of Mogh"; TNG: "Sins of the Father", "Birthright, Part I")

In 2346, Mogh had suspected that another high-ranking Klingon, Ja'rod, was collaborating with the Romulans. He decided to attempt to observe him. He followed him to Khitomer, taking his wife, son Worf and Worf's nurse, Kahlest, with him. Not expecting a long trip, he left his younger son Kurn with Lorgh as he was only a year old. While there, Mogh was observed by the commander of the outpost as acting strangely. The Romulans attacked the outpost, and he was killed along with his wife. Fortunately, Worf and Kahlest survived. (DS9: "The Way of the Warrior", "Sons of Mogh"; TNG: "Sins of the Father", "Birthright, Part I")

The fact that Ja'rod had betrayed the outpost's defenses did not come to light until 2366. As his House was very powerful at the time, the Klingon High Council decided to frame Mogh. Duras, son of Ja'rod subsequently made the allegation. Worf came to challenge it, however, having learned of the consequences of the truth being known, was forced to accept discommendation in order to protect the Empire. (TNG: "Sins of the Father", "The Drumhead")

Kor often called Worf "the son of Mogh". (DS9: "The Sword of Kahless", "Once More Unto the Breach")

When Worf met General Martok for the first time in 2373, he introduced himself as Worf, son of Mogh. (DS9: "In Purgatory's Shadow")

Background information Edit

  • This character was only mentioned in dialogue.
  • While Mogh was never seen on camera, a trading card was created for the Star Trek Customizable Card Game using photo elements of both Worf and Kurn, combined together using Photoshop.
  • The Art of the Impossible established that Mogh served as first officer under Captain K'mpec on the IKS Pu'Bekh. K'mpec noted that while Mogh was a warrior and excellent with a disruptor pistol, he was terrible with a bat'leth. When K'mpec ascended to the Klingon High Council, Mogh became captain of the Pu'Bekh.
