Origin Star Trek Canon Special Note
Not everything listed in the origin is Canon. That is because only television shows and movies are considered canon for Star Trek. This being a comic website there are many things here that are not canon. So unless it is contradicted in film it should be listed as part of the team biography.
The Varchas Crew is led by Captain Kaaj. Kaaj is a brutal commander who has killed more of his own men than the enemy. It is a tough ship because of this. The Varchas Crew has come into contact with the U.S.S. Enterprise

. Pike has bested the crew more than once and made Kaaj swear a blood oath to his death.
The crew of the Varchas were created in the comic series Star Trek: Early Voyages
