A symbol of the Tkon empire

Tkon script

The Tkon Empire was a ancient empire that existed over 600,000 years ago, and whose territory included part of the Taurus Reach. Highly advanced they were able to move star systems. Their empire collapsed after the Tkon homeworld was destroyed when the star it orbited went supernova. (TNG: "The Last Outpost", Star Trek: Vanguard novel: Open Secrets)

During the 24th century little was known about the Empire by the Federation. In 2364, the Federation starship USS Enterprise-D found an ancient guardian that had survived on Delphi Ardu IV. Known as Portals they acted as gatekeepers to the Empire as will as defenders of its outposts. (TNG: "The Last Outpost")

The Tkon were a subject of great interest for Timothy Sinclair during the late 24th century. In the 2370s, Sinclair wrote a monograph, Bloodstone's Forge: Tkon and Iconia, which detailed the connection between the two ancient empires, and their links to the Preservers. In 2385, Sinclair and a team of Federation archaeologists discovered the Starkindler, a legendary Tkon artifact. (Star Trek: Pendragon: "Another Time, Another Place", "Starkindler")
