Decent episode as most Klingon episodes are.


I do understand Roddenberry's wish to have the Klingons as allies, but honestly, I think they are best served as enemies, or at least antagonists.


It would have added more to Worf's character if the alliance between the Federation and the Klingon Empire shattered during TNG, creating a conflict arc and placing him in a very difficult position.


I liked the fact that the Klingons were trying to convince Worf to join them, though I must also point out that this episode showed how much more interesting Worf was than Tasha Yar and how HIS character needed to be developed and how she needed to be killed off.


I give this episode a rating of 3
