|Previous episode:||"The Child"|
Not much is known about this episode, as it has only just entered post-production. What is known is that it will take place within the Klingon Empire, and will feature Klingon characters sporting both their TOS looks, as well as movie/TNG-era head ridges. In fact it is this vary episode which gives viewers a reason why the Klingons have two kinds of humanoid appearances. The reason given was that the Klingons seen with out the cranial ridges were a created species of Klingon that would serve as Ambassadors to the Federation from the Klingon homeworld.
"Kitumba" will be directed by Vic Mignogna, a noted voice actor known for his roles as "Broly" in Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan and roles in several other popular English-dubbed Japanese animated series.
On April 15th, 2012, a "director's cut" of the episode was released online without knowledge or permission from the Phase II production. 
- This episode notably features both the smooth-headed QuchHa' Klingons, familiar to Kirk and crew, as well as the unaltered HemQuch Klingons.
