Trekathon 394: The Sword of Kahless (DS9)

June 3rd, 2012

Worf and Dax go hunting for the Sword of Kahless with another Klingon warrior, Kor.

A huge chunk of this episode is basically that episode from the Simpsons where several kids by a comic book together. They find something really precious. There’s a lot of fighting over who gets to keep it, and it ends up not going to any of them.

The real failure is that we learn very little about Worf. He suddenly develops a deep desire to rule the Klingon empire, something we’ve never seen before (or I suspect since), and so most of the episode is driven by something we’ve never seen him do before. Dax just plays backup, and so has even less than Worf here.

394 down, 343 to go.
