J'mpok of the House of J'mpok is a Klingon politician and member of the Klingon High Council, who became Chancellor in 2393 after slaying Martok under questionable circumstances in ritual combat. The House of Torg openly supports him.
Career[edit | edit source]
In 2391, J'mpok gathered together ship captains loyal to his house into one fleet after Chancellor Martok refused to entertain J'mpok's idea to fight the Federation and Romulans. The fleet invaded the Zeta Pictoris System and fought against a Romulan fleet, causing a split in the High Council.
In 2392, the Klingon High Council hardliners led by J'mpok demanded an invasion of Gorn space, and Martok, refusing to give in to their demands, continuously rejected them. In 2393, while meeting at the Great Hall, J'mpok slew Martok and assumed control of the Empire. The support for J'mpok's agenda concerned Federation political analysts, who expected things to come to a head by 2395. Under J'mpok's leadership, the Klingons invaded Gorn space and brought its people under the banner of the Empire. In 2399, when the Federation Council condemned the invasion of Gorn space, J'mpok withdrew the Klingon Empire from the Khitomer Accords, beginning a new war between the Federation and the Klingon Empire.
Missions involved[edit | edit source]

When an Iconian appears and kills several High Council members, J'mpok agrees on a cease-fire between the Empire and the Federation.
- “Enemies in All the Usual Places”: KDF players establish contact with Chancellor J'mpok after tapping into a Hirogen communications array in the Trakia System.
- “Uneasy Allies”: J'mpok contacts KDF players to inform them of Sela's escape from Republic custody. When the player informs him they've found her, he instructs them to go along with Sela's offer to uncover more information about the Iconians.
- “The Temporal Front”: J'mpok attends the Alliance Summit on New Romulus, where he is poisoned by a Na'kuhl agent.
- “Storm Clouds Gather”: Together with other leaders, J'mpok travels to Deep Space 9 for an Alliance summit on the Hur'q threat. Here he expresses the Empire's refusal to assist the Dominion in a fight against the Hur'q.
- “Home”: The player speaks with J'mpok on DS9 after the final battle against the Hur'q. He complains that Martok will become even more prideful following the events of the mission, but is thankful in the knowledge that Martok has no political aspirations that would threaten J'mpok's chancellorship.
- “The Centre Cannot Hold”: J'mpok accepts J'Ula's request in meeting the Klingon High Council and asks for the player's presence at the Great Hall. J'Ula calls him out for his dishonorable actions, such as stealing his position of Chancellor while Martok still lives.
- “The Khitomer Discord”: J'mpok sends Martok to aid the player in the hunt for J'Ula and her House Mo'Kai forces on Khitomer System. After the player and Martok emerge on the upper levels with Adet'pa's help after J'Ula explains the situation with Aakar, he sends Klingon forces led by Captain Ja'rod to engage them. Martok swears that J'mpok will no longer have allies when everyone finds out what he has done. J'mpok launched a mycelial weapon he stole from Aakar's ship on Khitomer, releasing Elachi forces and killing numerous who were caught in the wave. Later in orbit, Captains Kagran, Va'Kel Shon and Koren warped in where J'mpok silenced the player before they could explain the situation and dishonorably accuses them of betraying the Alliance and joining House Mo'Kai. Refusing to stand down with the player, Martok orders to disable the flagships and their forces instead of destroying them, while remarks that they fight like Klingons. Depending on the player's faction Koren or Shon inform the player that J'mpok would soon declare everyone, including Martok, an enemy of the Empire and advises them to leave Khitomer, lie low and wait for their signal once it is safe to return.
- “Partisans”: J'mpok aboard his flagship, the I.K.S. Kri’stak, engages the player, Martok, Adet'pa and House Mo'Kai forces in the Gorath System while J'Ula and Wilkins, aboard the Lukara, work on broadcasting the evidence of the attack on Khitomer. Despite everyone in the system learning that J'mpok was the one who launched the mycelial weapon, the mission ends with the various Klingon Houses losing trust in the Empire and returning to their own homes. J'mpok furiously calls them out as traitors, dismissing the Klingon High Council and proclaiming himself as 'Emperor' of the Klingon Empire.
