Character on Star Trek played by Michael Ansara.
As a Klingon, Kang was known as a traditionalist who lamented the passing of the old ways.
In his first appearance in the episode Day of the Dove (TOS), Kang encountered the Beta XII-A entity, which fed on hatred. It caused the damage and ultimate destruction of his ship, but not before the Enterprise, captained by James T. Kirk managed to beam the Klingons on board.
Unbeknownst to both crews, the Beta XII-A entity had escaped to the Enterpise, feeding on the mutual distrust between the Federation and the Klingons. With Spock's help, Kirk is able to reach a truce with Kang, ensuring victory over their common foe.
In a flashback episode in Star Trek: Voyager, it is revealed that Kang is responsible for delaying the U.S.S. Excelsior, captained by Hikaru Sulu, during the Khitomer Conference depicted in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
In 2370, he together with fellow veterans Koloth and Kor, fulfilled their blood oath against the evil Albino, though after striking the fatal blow against his enemy, Kang soon died from his massive wounds.
