Kor, the Klingon Dahar master and friend of Dax is once again on the station. He hasn't lost his appetite for alcohol and is still capable of telling great tales. Dax introduces him to Worf and Kor tells of a quest he is planning. He has found a clue to the possible location of the Sword of Kahless, the founder of the Klingon Empire. It's been lost for a thousand of years and it is said that when it is found it will once again reunite the Klingon empire. Worf and Kor seem to like each other because they are both opposed to Gowran. Together with Dax they plan to find the relic to turn it over to the Emperor. The two Klingons make it a late celebration. Kor returns to his quarters in a very drunken state, where he is attacked telepathically by a Lethean. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Nasty, icky Sword (Bat'leth) of Kahless.
28 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with Kor (John Colicos) on DS9 spinning drunken tales of glory. You might remember this character from earlier in the series ("Blood Oath") or from the original "Star Trek" ("Errand of Mercy")--but it isn't necessary for you to have seen these prior episodes. Suffice to say, this old warrior is more a drinking machine than much of a hero any more. However, his stories about how he might be on the trail of the legendary Sword of Kahless might just turn out to have something to it--and some others are also very interested in following Kor and his friends, Worf and Jadzia Dax to the location of this legendary weapon. However, surprisingly, there is SOMETHING about this weapon, as after they find it, it sets them against each other. What gives?!

All in all, this is a decent episode but not much more. I did once again love seeing the great evil villain character actor John Colicos once again and any Worf episode is worth seeing.
