Quotes

Koroth: What is the story of The Promise, Worf?
Lieutenant Worf: When Kahless had united our people and gave them the laws of honor, he saw that his work was done. So one night he gathered his belongings and departed for the edge of the city to say goodbye.
Koroth: The people wept. They did not want him to go.

A crisis of faith.
30 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Worf is obviously being bothered by something and his work aboard the Enterprise has suffered since returning from the prison planet where many Klingons are being held. So, Picard advises Worf to take a leave of absence and discover what is bothering him. Worf heads to a planet where the faithful await the return of their prophet, Kahless, who has been gone for 1500 years. Amazingly, Kahless appears to Worf...a living, breathing Kahless!! What's next?!

This episode really doesn't help Worf to answer his nagging doubts, though the idea is reasonably interesting. However, compared to other Klingon episodes, this one is a bit weak--with less gore, mayhem and nastiness than you'd normally expect.
