Notes
  • IKC = Imperial Klingon Cruiser.
  • John Putch also played a Benzite in the 1st season episode "Coming of Age". In that episode, Mordock competed for Starfleet Academy entrance. Lt. Chang congratulated him on being the first Benzite in Starfleet. If Mendon has the rank of Ensign, then he would have been at the Academy prior to Mordock.
