mirror universe counterpart, see Khitomer (mirror).
Khitomer was a planet in the Klingon Empire, near the border with the United Federation of Planets.
Khitomer was the site of a peace conference convened in
2293 between the Klingons and the Federation. As a result of this conference, the Khitomer Accords were drafted, creating an alliance between the two powers. ( ST movie: )
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
The Klingon settlement on Khitomer was attacked in
2346. Many of the inhabitants of the colony died, including Worf's parents Mogh and Kaasin. Ja'Rod, the father of Duras, was also killed in the attack. A number of other Klingons were captured by the Romulans during the attack. ( TNG episodes: " Sins of the Father", " Birthright")
The Transinium Challenge video game lists the destroyed colony as the " Federation Outpost Khitomer".
Eventually the settlement at Khitomer was rebuilt.
William Ross met Gowron at Khitomer prior to late 2375. ( DS9 episode: " When It Rains...")
Khitomer served as the site of a summit in
2376 among the allies of the Dominion War. ( - TNG The Brave and the Bold, Book Two novella: )

Later history Edit
References in ST - DTI novel: Watching the Clock and STO novel: The Needs of the Many establish that the timeline of Star Trek Online is an alternate reality to the timeline in the Destiny novels. In particular, the STO Borg Invasion of 2381 did not occur in the timeline. The two references below this note may be representative of divergent continuities.
Borg invasion Edit
During the invasion of the
Borg Collective in 2381, Khitomer was one of five simultaneous attacks from Borg cubes, along with Korvat and Federation starbases 157, 234, and 343. The Klingon High Council felt the invasion was a purely internal Federation matter, until the USS , Arimathea USS , and Constant USS sacrificed themselves to save the planet. Governor Ranger Talgar, who had watched the skies from Khitomer City, delivered Starfleet's sensor readings to Chancellor Martok, who was able to convince the rest of the High Council to devote Klingon Defense Force assets to the fight. ( - ST Destiny novel: ) Though saved from the Gods of Night Borg once, this planet was again attacked and fell to the Borg Invasion of 2381. None of the population survived this attack. ( - ST Destiny novel: )
Path to 2409 Edit
At some point between
August of 2381 and 2382, the Romulan Star Empire took control of this planet from the Klingon Empire.
Against the wishes of the
United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire took back control of Khitomer from the Romulan Star Empire in 2382. This action upset galactic politics in 2383 even though the extremely recent Romulan claim had lasted less than a year.
2385, Martok demanded that all non- Klingons leave Khitomer. Due to the large population on this planet, many ships were required. ( ST website: )
