Review : The episode goes a long way to establish a more in depth background for both Martok and Worf. Worf admitting to Sisko that he was going to allow himself to be killed showed that his spirit had been broken and Martok healed him. The greatest moment is the Klingon crew singing together with a renewed outlook on battle and looking forward to victory instead of planning on defeat. The next greatest moment is when Worf admits that he did not know Martok would not kill him. Work was willing to die to renew Martok's warrior spirit.

Review : Seen it loads of times, love it still. It's nice to see characters who have forceful personalities; the "toning down" of humans in Star Trek is a bit bland. In my opinion, a show in which the aliens are deliberately shown to have more colourful personalities than the humans is doing something wrong. But this is DS9 where the storylines, character development and sense of importance elevate most of the episodes above obscurity. Worf's plan to restore Martok's confidence is bold and dangerous but typically Klingon, and the writer clearly knows his stuff.
