||Here was where they started filling out the Klingons, turning them from the pure villains of TOS and the slightly more complicated villains of TNG to the way we know them now. Sometimes, that did not quite work (hence jokes about 'The Bikers of the Galaxy') but I think it fitted together fairly well here. However, they succeeded in going somewhat too far with the Klingon captain's reaction. He turns one minor incidence of corrosion into a suspected surprise attack, then prepares for an attack of his own. He also lets Riker stay on the bridge rather than dragging him off to the brig. Finally, after Riker has already refused to reveal classified information, he then gives it away, and the captain does nothing. I'm more neutral on the Benzite ensign on-board the Enterprise, that was a pure culture clash, but had a bit too much of Wesley in it. However, there were quite a few redeeming features. Riker fitting in with the Klingon crew worked very well without slipping into comedy. He also seemed to enjoy every second when he was speaking to Picard as a fellow captain (tongue firmly in cheek, I imagine). Overall, not too bad.
