Background information[]

Alnschloss K'Bentayr was portrayed by actress Katarzyna Kowalczyk.

K'Bentayr's rank was not stated in dialogue and is based on the rank insignia stripe.

Alnschloss' appearance was based on a design by Neville Page. Though the look of the character was similar to Arex from Star Trek: The Animated Series, that was unintentional. "The character of Alnschloss was not inspired nor based on Arex [....] It was based on an original design by [...] Neville Page. JJ liked the design Neville had and asked if I could realize it as a character. It was the first alien to work on first day of shooting and it wowed everybody. It was further brought to life by Kasia Kowalczyk." [1]

Alnschloss' name comes from production sources and was never mentioned on-screen – and neither was their gender. According to the viral site Starfleet Shipyard, Alnschloss was born on the planet Monchezke in the Beta Quadrant, their service number was SA-890-0404-DB, and they were the security officer. The virtual collectible card battle game Star Trek: Rivals has a card, #5, named "Security Officer A. K'Bentayr".



K'Bentayr on Royla

In Issue 14 of IDW Publishing's Star Trek: Ongoing series, K'Bentayr was present when Captain Richard Robau and Lieutenant George Kirk made first contact with the Roylans.

A cadet named Vel K'Bentayr (β) (possibly a relative) is featured in the 2015 Starfleet Academy comics by IDW. The comic reveals that Monchezkin (β)s came from the Beta Quadrant, and were a hive mind species that rarely communicated vocally, causing them to narrate their actions and feelings aloud when they did so.
