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)

Did You Know?


Toral taunts Worf for not killing him when he had the chance; a reference to TNG episode "Redemption II," where following the defeat of the House of Duras in the Klingon civil war, Gowron presents the young Toral for Worf to kill in retribution for his family's crimes against Worf, who instead takes pity on Toral and spares his life, electing to let him live with his dishonor.

Needed Beefing Up
22 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The Sword of Kahless is the holy grail of the Klingons. Kahless is the godhead of these people and the sword is thought to have magic properties. Kor, Jadzea, and Worf go on a mission to find the sword and return it to the Emperor of the Klingons. But the thing creates serious problems for all of them. It also enlists a group of Klingons who follow the trio and try to take the sword from them. Ultimately, the power is different from what was imagined. There is just too little effort to create a sense of suspense and dread.
