Korax was the Klingon executive officer of the IKS Gr'oth, serving under the command of Captain Koloth in 2268. As a product of 22nd century genetic engineering, Korax was descended from Klingons affected with the Augment virus created in 2154. (ENT: "Divergence")

While drinking in a bar while on shore leave aboard Deep Space Station K-7, Korax and a number of his crew traded insults with Montgomery Scott and Pavel Chekov and a number of the crew of the USS Enterprise, who were also on the station. The insults, including calling Captain James T. Kirk a "Denebian slime devil" and calling the Enterprise a "garbage scow", eventually ignited an all out brawl between the Starfleet and Klingon crews, including Miles O'Brien and Julian Bashir from DS9. (TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles"; DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")

Korax continued to serve as Koloth's executive officer aboard the IKS Devisor in 2269, when the Klingon captain attempted to arrest Cyrano Jones. (TAS: "More Tribbles, More Troubles")

Korax was played by actor Michael Pataki. The Animated Series voice of Korax was provided by James Doohan.

His mirror universe counterpart appeared in the novel The Sorrows of Empire. A cat counterpart appeared in the Jenny Parks book Star Trek Cats.
