Maltz was a male Klingon who lived in the 23rd and 24th centuries. He was from the House of Grokan. (TNG - The Genesis Wave novel: Book One)


As a young man, Maltz became an officer in the Klingon Defense Force. In the year 2273 he was the second officer of the IKS Ghargh during its mission to Cragon V. (TOS novel: Home is the Hunter)

In 2285, he was serving on board Commander Kruge's bird-of-prey. When the ship was taken by then-Admiral James T. Kirk, Maltz was taken prisoner. (TOS movie, novelization & comic adaptation: Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

It was believed after the incident that Maltz had committed suicide. (TOS - Duty, Honor, Redemption novelization: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

However, Maltz had survived as a prisoner of the Federation. During his imprisonment, Maltz assisted Federation linguists in learning even more about the Klingon language. (ST reference: The Klingon Dictionary)

In 2287, Maltz testified at the trial of Captain Kirk. (TOS comic: "Trial and Error!")

Maltz eventually returned to the Klingon Empire. For many years he struggled with the shame of being defeated by Admiral Kirk. In 2376 when the Genesis Wave was propelled through the Alpha Quadrant, Maltz emerged to help track the wave to its source, joining a Klingon-Federation crew where he served as first officer to Doctor Leah Brahms, who had impressed him with her courage while attempting to escape the first strike launched by the wave. Shortly before his death, he met Carol Marcus, the mother of David Marcus— who had been killed at the order of Kruge many years before. Maltz died holding Carol Marcus while the space station they were on self-destructed, ensuring that the knowledge of Genesis that Marcus had could never be used again. (TNG - The Genesis Wave novels: Book One, Book Two)
