Reviewer : ASR Rating : 4
Review : A vision of Klingon culture from within based entirely on the Original Series, this sympathetic portrayal of an intelligent race, militaristic but not uncontrollably violent, practical rather than honourable. This book is a demonstration of the possibilities that TNG missed when it effectively swapped the Klingon and Romulan traits established in TOS. The story spans the career of a Klingon officer, charting his ascent by means of superior intelligence and tactical acumen from a player in the Klin Zha games to command of the first Klingon ship to be sent on a diplomatic mission to earth. This book paints a deeply believable rather than a romanticised culture. These are Klingons from the world of Chancellor Gorkon, so to speak, not the world of bumpy-headed Vikings for whom honour is equated with wine, war and random violence.
Reviewer : KTasay Rating : 5
Review : Excellent book. Of of the best I've read so far. Sheds new insights on the Klingons giving an early indication to the alliance that would occur by the TNG era.
