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 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 would serve as the site of a summit in 2376 among the allies of the Dominion War. (ST novel: The Brave and the Bold)

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 Constant, and USS Ranger sacrificed themselves to save the planet. Governor 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: Gods of Night) Though saved from the 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: Lost Souls)

At some point between August of 2381 and 2382, the Romulan Star Empire took control of this planet from the Klingon Empire. (ST website: The Path to 2409)

Against the wishes of the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire took control of Khitomer in 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. (ST website: The Path to 2409)

In 2385, Martok demanded that all non-Klingons leave Khitomer. Due to the large population on this planet, many ships were required. (ST website: The Path to 2409)
