|Affiliation:||Klingon Defense Force|
Early life and careerEdit
A great warlord, Kruge would stop at nothing to meet his goals. Kruge fought in battle against the USS Potemkin, (under the temporary command of then First Officer John T. Carter) lost, and was forced to retreat. Temporarily adrift in space, Kruge was left with his warrior crew to repair their damaged vessel and return to the Klingon homeworld.
Family and personal lifeEdit
It is believed that Kruge was descended from a powerful and influential family within the Klingon Empire. Because of his political connections and family heritage, he was able to maintain command of his vessel after his humiliating defeat. Following that incident, Kruge vowed to get revenge against the Federation, having never known of or met Captain Carter until their encounter on Diotoma III.
