Another masterpiece from Ronald Moore who you should all thank for developing the Klingons. He blended their culture to include elements from Japanese Samurai history and Norse mythology. Clearly he's an educated person who does his research to apply historical Earth cultures to alien races which is something I also support.


This episode explored Klingon faith, religion and politics. Handled perfectly to craft a superb story from beginning to end with a superb ending as Worf brings the two elements and factions together to create a mutual compromise for the good of his people. Another superb performance from Robert O'Reilly as Gowron.




Gold Standard episode.


Rating = 5 :thumbs::eek: :P B) :klingon:
