Qo'NoS or Kronos????

I've seen the Klingon homeworld referred to as Qo'NoS and Kronos equal times, and I want to know which it "officially" is, canonically.

It's generally spelled "Qo'noS" but pronounced "Kronos."

"Kronos" was up on the screen in huge letters in Into Darkness. Big shiny canon letters.

Re: Qo'NoS or Kronos????

Far as I know, it's only ever been Kronos in canon. Qo'nos seems to only be a thing in novels, video games and the like. For whatever reason, fans seem to have latched onto it as well.

I count five letters that look like they begin with either O or Q. Of course, they were Roman letters, so they could not really be official.

Wasn't there a map visible from TOS that said "Kling" on it for the Klingon homeworld? Or maybe that's just the name of the star system.

I have observed the same. In all the movies/shows I have watched with close-captioning, they say "Kronos".

It seems to be pronounced that way to.

But in the novels/video games/comic books, it's Qo'NoS.

I think I'm gonna go with "Kronos". Definitely more canon.

Re: Qo'NoS or Kronos????

Apparently the native name for the Homeworld hadn't yet been determined by the time of TNG: Heart of Glory. Korris (Vaughn Armstrong) has a line to the effect of, "I would rather die than let the traitors of Kling pick the meat from my bones."

Someone decided Kling sounded too wimpy or something, and they began trying to come up with a better name, which was retconned into everything else.

Kronos however, instantly makes me remember a sci-fi movie from 1957 called Kronos, about a giant machine from outer space that lands on earth.
