In Klingon mythology, Sto-vo-kor is the afterlife of the wanted dead, where all worthy warriors go after they die to fight an eternal battle against great enemies. (TNG episode: "Rightful Heir", DS9 episode: "The Sword of Kahless")

A Klingon would be deemed to be worthy to enter sto-vo-kor by dying in battle or by performing an heroic deed. Entry into sto-vo-kor would also occur if an individual allowed themselves to be killed by another Klingon. (DS9 episode: "Children of Time")

Alternatively, relatives of a deceased individual may also perform a great deed in their honor to ensure their arrival in sto-vor-kor. (DS9 episodes: "Image in the Sand", "Shadows and Symbols" DS9 - The Left Hand of Destiny novels: Book One, Book Two)
