Worf, the first Klingon to serve as a Starfleet officer, served as a Lieutenant on the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, and quickly climbed through the ranks to become a Lieutenant Commander, as the Operations Officer on Deep Space Nine, under the command of Captain Benjamin Sisko. Born on the Klingon Homeworld, the eldest son of Mogh, Worf was raised by humans because his family was killed at the Battle of Kittamer when the Romulans destroyed the Klingon outpost because they were betrayed by the Duras family. After accepting discommendation, Worf eventually regained the honor of his family by killing Duras with his Bat’leth – the same weapon his father once used, as featured in this Star Trek Hallmark Ornament. Worf, like most Klingons, values of honor and loyalty above all else, as demonstrated by his most famous quote from Star Trek: The Next Generation, where he said: “If winning is not important, then why keep score?” … spoken like a TRUE Klingon
