Trekathon 153: The Emissary (TNG)

March 14th, 2010

Another strong episode, this time with Worf getting a girlfriend (and also a little bit of time in the big chair).

Klingon culture struggles along – apparently Klingon mating rituals are largely based on 1980s romantic comedies, where the two main participants fight until they realise they’re in love. I was a little sad that the previous suggestions about Klingon love poetry didn’t get used here, it would have made it a lot more interesting.

(Important note: despite the fact that this episode inevitably leads to Worf’s son Alexander, I am not deducting any points for this episode).

153 down, 584 to go.
