Kronos was the Chronovore who destroyed Atlantis.

Profile

Kronos was the result of a forbidden union, made unlawful by the Ancient Convenant, of a Chronovore, Prometheus, and the Eternal known as Electra. (PDA: The Quantum Archangel) He described himself as "beyond good and evil".

In the 1970s, the Master used a crystal named after Kronos to cause him to manifest so that (he thought) he might bind Kronos to his will. The Master failed, and, returned back in time to the later days of Atlantis, Kronos ruined the city. In the aftermath of this event, he stopped both the Doctor's and the Master TARDIS in the Time Vortex and, appearing as a huge translucent female face, asked the Doctor whether he wanted Kronos to destroy the Master. The Doctor demured, Kronos let him free and the Master vanished into his TARDIS. (DW: The Time Monster)

Behind the Scenes

The name Kronos refers back to Greek mythology; Kronos was the father of the Olympian Gods. Kronos is similar to the word chronos meaning time.

Qo'noS

Qo'noS, as it appeared in the mid 22nd century.
Full name: Qo'noS
Alternate name: Kling
Classification: Class M
Affiliation: Klingon Empire
Location: Beta Quadrant
Moon(s): Praxis (destroyed 2293)
Dominant Species: Klingons
Warp Capable: 930 AD
Capital: First City
For the mirror universe counterpart, see Qo'noS (mirror).

Qo'noS, also known as Kling, is the homeworld of the Klingon species and capital planet of the Klingon Empire. (TOS movie, novelization & comic adaptation: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

In the novel The Final Reflection and the FASA role-playing game's supplement "The Klingons" (both by John M. Ford), the Klingon homeworld was given the name Klinzhai, which was used in some later works such as The IDIC Epidemic and Ishmael before being superceded by The Undiscovered Country.

The world orbits an orange bright subgiant (Type K1 IV) star and possessed two moons; Corvix and Praxis, the latter of the two is now remnants that circle the planet after it exploded. The planet itself possesses a single landmass that comprises the entire habitable surface. The terrain consists primarily of high, rocky mountains, jagged cliffs, and rivers of lava, which are the result of unstable tectonics. A greenhouse effect caused by the volcanic ash keeps the planet's surface warm and traps its oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere. The interaction of cold air over the ocean and extremely hot air over the continents gives rise to sizable storms; with no land on the planet's far side to halt their growth, the hurricanes the size of Earth's North America form over the sea and slam into the land like a sledgehammer. Visitors to Qo'noS find it difficult to move around in the high gravity (1.23G) and thick atmosphere causing fatigue among those who visit the planet. (ST reference: Aliens)

Out of the other five planets located wihin the system, Qo'noS is the only habitable M Class planet. Though it requires a certain level of technology in order to maintain the environment. (TOS video game: Starfleet Command)

This clashes with the information in Decipher's Aliens book which states it is the third world within a ten planet system.

History

500,000 years ago, what would be considered the "earlier recognizable Klingons" appear on Qo'noS. (ST roleplay module: All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook)

The most significant change that occurred to Qo'noS was the destruction of its moon Praxis due to overmining. (TOS movie: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country) The remains of the moon would form an asteroid belt around the planet which would remove any detection systems the Klingons had in place. Furthermore, the asteroid field resulted in frequent meteor showers raining on the planet below with the larger pieces crashing into the Klingon homeworld fifty years after Praxis' explosion. This would be a dangerous event for the Klingon homeworld and the species itself as it resulted in a slow death without assistance from the Federation. (TOS novel: Sarek)

In 2376, this was listed as the host location of a current or past marathon. (New Worlds, New Civilizations short story: "The Footfalls of Tradition")

In 2381, the Borg bombarded Qo'noS from orbit killing a total of 77 million people. (ST - Destiny novel: Lost Souls)

Alternate Reality

In an alternate reality where Bajor and the Bajoran wormhole remained under Cardassian control, the Dominion formed and alliance with the Cardassian Union and targeted Qo'noS in a Jem'Hadar attack. Originally over 100 Jem'Hadar ships left Cardassian space for Qo'noS. While only 40 ships made it to the planet, they were still able to do considerable damage to the Klingon Defense Forces. As the battle raged, five Jem'Hadar ships focused their attention on the planet, entered the atmosphere, and bombarded its surface. Billions were killed, including Worf's brother Kurn who sat on the Klingon High Council.

By this time, the USS Defiant under the command of Worf had entered the system and begun to attack the Jem'Hadar fleet, but it was unable to stop the planetary bombardment. Scans of the surface revealed that the First City had been entirely destroyed and that only a few thousand survivors remained on the planet.

With news that an additonal 20 Jem'Hadar ships were approaching the system, Worf ordered the Defiant into Qo'noS's sun with plans to initiate a warp core breech that would then cause a supernova, destroying the system and the the Jem'Hadar fleet. The attack and destruction of Qo'noS left the Klingons significantly weakened to the point that the remaining two Founders trapped in the Alpha Quadrant no longer considered the Klingon Empire to be a power in the region. (Myriad Universes novel: A Gutted World)

From Grand Theft Wiki

Kronos is a Swiss watch manufacturer from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV which was established in 1809. The Company is a parody of the brand Swatch. The company has two known products that are advertised; the "Kronos Twatch" (a mix between the words twat and watch) and "The Gigante".

In 1984, the setting of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. The only store is located in Downtown and their logo can be seen on Mules throughout the city.

While in San Andreas and Liberty City in the 90's only watches are advertised, clocks and other timepieces can be bought in the store in Downtown Vice City in 1984 (not by the player).

In GTA IV there is a fully functional Kronos clock on the wall in the Bohan Safehouse.

Kronos advertises with the slogan "The End of Time".

PLANET
Qo'noS
Star system: Klingon
Class: M
Surface: Moderate

Qo'noS (Anglicized Kronos) is a Class M planet, homeworld of the Klingons and capital of the Klingon Empire.

Contents

Astronomical data

Location

Qo'noS is about four days away from Sol at warp 4.5, putting the planet about 1.4 lightyears from Earth.

This fact seems questionable, considering that the nearest star to Earth is Proxima Centauri, which is 4.22 lightyears away. Also, an evacuation of the planet was being planned in 2293, which would have altered the distance between Earth and the Klingon Homeworld.

Name(s)

  • Qo'noS
  • The Homeworld
  • Klinzhai (FASA RPG, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)
Surface view, 2151

Further information

Historical

In 2293, a nearby moon, Praxis, exploded due to an accident involving over-mining. The subspace shockwave sent out by the explosion caused damage severe damage to Qo'noS's ozone layer, forcing planning for the evacuation of the planet. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

Geographical

Qo'noS has a single land mass and a vast ocean. The planet also has a severely titled axis, which causes extreme weather shifts and wild seasonal changes. (DS9: "Once More Unto the Breach")

Cities

The capital of Qo'noS is First City. Other cities include Qam-Chee, Quin-lat, and Tong Vey.

Appendices

Appearances

Background

It remains unclear if the Qo'noS seen in ENT: "Broken Bow, Part One" is the same planet as seen in TNG and DS9 episodes, as the evacuation of the original Qo'noS was never seen on screen, but only mentioned at the 2293 Khitomer Conference.

Star Wars Fanon

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

The Star Wars wiki of fan invention.

Kronos was also known as "The Resurrection Planet." It was a desert planet, with only two cities: Kilner and Delgo. There were two seasons, summer and winter, both lasting roughly four months. At the beginning of each season, the planets' star would turn blue, then resume its natural color once the season started. It was unavailable on most galactic maps, and only twenty maps for certain had the coordinates. One of them happened to be Wedge Antilles' Incom X-Wing. This planet held the cave of the resurrection crystals.
