Portrayed by William Campbell

Koloth, played by William Campbell, is a Klingon character in the fictional Star Trek universe who appears in the original series episode "The Trouble with Tribbles", the animated series episode "More Tribbles, More Troubles", and the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Blood Oath".


As the captain of the Klingon vessel, IKS Gr'oth, Koloth faces James T. Kirk at spacestation K-7 during the 2268 Sherman's Planet affair depicted in "The Trouble with Tribbles". According to Jadzia Dax in the Deep Space Nine episode "Trials and Tribble-ations", Koloth always regretted never facing Kirk in battle. Koloth once defeated T'nag and his army with only colleagues Kang and Kor, according to Kor's tale 2372 in the Deep Space Nine episode "Once More Unto the Breach", later feasting on the leader's heart; he personally attacked T'nag's flank with only a disruptor and a bat'leth, killing two dozen men out of vengeance.

In 2290, Kor, Kang, Koloth and Curzon Dax pledged a blood oath to avenge the deaths of the sons of the three Klingon captains, the offense committed by the Albino. They nearly caught him at Galdonterre, but one of their subspace messages was intercepted and he, once again, was able to escape.

After decades of searching, Kang learned of the whereabouts of the Albino, in 2370, on the planet Secarus IV. Kang traveled to Secarus IV and discovered his compound. The Albino knew immediately of his arrival and invited the trio to a "fair fight" and one last glorious battle. Kang would contact both Kor and Koloth for a rendezvous on Deep Space 9, in preparation of their final attempt to complete their lifelong quest.

Three months later, Kor, Koloth, and Kang, with the aid of Jadzia Dax, prepared their attack on the Albino's compound, only to discover that it was a trap. Using the element of surprise, they bombarded the compound with tetryon particles, forcing the Albino and his sentries into face-to-face, hand-to-hand combat. Following a fierce battle, the mortally wounded Kang was able to slay the Albino. Fulfilling their blood oath, both Kang and Koloth were able to die a glorious and honorable deat

According to Jadzia Dax in "Blood Oath", Curzon Dax called him D'akturak - "ice man" - for his toughness in negotiating when they squared off against each other.

A Dahar Master, Koloth is still spry when he reunites with Kang, Kor, and Dax in "Blood Oath", depicting the group's 2370 reunion to fulfill their blood oaths to kill the albino marauder who killed all the Klingon trio's firstborn sons in 2290. Koloth has no respect for Kor's drunkenness, but his demeanor even affects Odo, and Kor vows to sing of Koloth's valor forever. Koloth dies during the Klingons' and Dax's assault on the albino's compound.

In Koloth's appearance on the original series, he has a very human appearance, suggesting that he is one of the descendants of the victims of the Augment virus. By the time of his appearance on DS9, Koloth's true Klingon visage had been restored.
