Korax was a male Klingon who served in the Klingon Defense Force during the 23rd century.

In the 2260s, Korax served as first officer to Captain Koloth of the IKS Gr'oth. In 2266, Korax provoked a fight with Lieutenant Commander Montgomery Scott on Deep Space Station K-7. In retribution, Scott beamed a mass of tribbles into the Gr'oth's engine room just before that vessel left the station at warp. (TOS episode: "The Trouble with Tribbles")

Koloth placed blame on Korax when removing the infestation proved too difficult. Although Koloth retained Korax on his next command, the IKS Devisor (TAS episode: "More Tribbles, More Troubles") the captain lost significant regard for the junior officer, and Korax's career stagnated.

Circa 2281, Korax became commander of a dilithium-mining prison on Pao'la. In 2287, with the rise to power of Chancellor Gorkon, the prison was considered an affront to honor and destroyed. Korax survived the facility's destruction, but suffered in the dishonor of his association with the prison. (TOS novel: In the Name of Honor)


In the Crucible trilogy, Korax had become Captain of the G'roth by 2270, and that year launched an attack on the Guardian of Forever, believing it to be a Federation super-weapon development site. He plunged his ship directly onto the suspect site, killing himself and supposedly destroying the Guardian.

Author David R. George III acknowledges that the Crucible trilogy largely does not take non-canon continuity into account, thus the contradiction of other stories.
