Trekathon 273: Rightful Heir (TNG)

June 19th, 2010

Y’know, if I was Gowron I’d just go in the other direction whenever I saw Worf – he always seems to be caught in the middle of complicated difficulties for the Klingon Empire.

This time around he’s rewriting the Klingon constitution by reforming it into a constitutional monarchy. It’s a good episode, driven by Worf’s doubts and inner journey. It manages to transcend the somewhat silly premise of cloning an original Klingon hero.

As an aside, it’s interesting that we’ve now had almost a dozen episodes focused on Klingon politics, and really only one about those of the Federation. As a result we know far more about the Klingons, which seems odd.

273 down, 464 to go.
