Storyline

After being involved with dereliction of duty, Worf is placed on leave and given time to get his personal affairs in order. In the process of doing so, he summons forth Kahless, the ancient Klingon whom the legends claim will bring the Klingon empire together as one, even though the ancient leader splits the Empire into two.

Goofs

When Kahless walks into the holodeck to meet Gowron, when the holodeck door closes (off-screen) the wrong door sound effect is heard. The sound effect heard is the "whish" sound associated with cabin and turbolift doors, not the sound associated with the much larger cargo bay and holodeck doors. See more »

Quotes

Kahless: Long ago, a storm was heading toward the city of Quin'lat. The people sought protection within the walls, all except one man who remained outside. I went to him and asked what he was doing. "I am not afraid," he said. "I will not hide my face behind stone and mortar. I will stand before the wind and make it respect me." I honored his choice and went inside. The next day, the storm came; and the man was killed. The wind does not respect a fool. Do not stand before the wind, Gowron.

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.
