In Klingon mythology, Sto-vo-kor (Suto'vo'qor in the Klingon language) 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)
