Quotes

Lt. Commander Worf: You know that I was forced to fight the Jem'Hadar guards in the camp. Each day they would call me to the ring, and each day I would fight. But then there came a day when I... wavered.
Captain Sisko: You mean you didn't want to go back into the ring?
Lt. Commander Worf: No, I mean I considered letting them kill me. It seemed like the only way out. Just before I went into the ring, Martok turned to wish me success. And then he saw what I was planning, he saw it in my eyes. It was a moment of tova'dok.
Captain Sisko: Of what?
Lt. Commander Worf: There is no Human ...

Another chance to see what it's like to serve on a Klingon vessel.
18 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A while back, Worf and General Martok became the best of friends and Martok invited Worf to join his family to regain his honor. In turn, Worf thinks the world of Martok so it's not surprising when he jumps at the chance to serve along side of him on a Klingon ship. After all, the new Cardassian/Dominion alliance is almost unstoppable and the Empire needs good officers. Unexpectedly, however, Jadzia Dax also wants to come along and serve aboard this ship. What follows SHOULD have been an honor-filled adventure where the ship blew the crap out of anything that came near it--it IS the Klingon way. However, unexpectedly Martok seems to be very hesitant to engage the enemy and the crew begins grumbling loudly. By tradition, it's up to the First Officer (Worf) to challenge his superior and fight him to the death--so what is Worf going to do?

Like most of the Klingon episodes, this one is exciting and full of manly action and violence. And, it manages to work very well at the end--making it one of the better episodes of the year.
