Sins of the Father

Review

Series : The Next Generation Rating : 3
Disc No : 3.4 Episode : 64
First Aired : 19 Mar 1990 Stardate : 43685.2
Director : Les Landau Year : 2366
Writers : Drew Deighan, Ronald D. Moore, W. Read Morgan Season : 3
Guest Cast :
Charles Cooper as K'mpec
Guy Vardaman as Darien Wallace
Patrick Massett as Duras
Teddy Davis as Transporter tech
Thelma Lee as Kahlest
Tony Todd as Commander Kurn
Moral :
Politics : In a land of hypocrites, it's more important than honour
YATI : When Picard accepts Worf's offer to become his cha'DIch, Picard accepts by speaking in Klingon, then translates it into English. Who is he translating it for, exactly? Not Worf, not himself... it's as if he thinks somebody is watching or something!

It's a minor thing, but Picard orders the ship to head for "the first city of the Klingon Imperial Empire." Isn't "Imperial Empire" that rather redundant?

Kahlest declared that "Mogh was loyal to the Emperor!" What Emperor would that be? We've since discovered in the episode "Rightful Heir" that there is no Emperor in the Klingon Empire, and hasn't been for centuries. Rather, it is governed by the Chancellor.

Great Moment : Worf's discommendation.
Body Count : Kurn and a Klingon assassin are injured, but nobody dies.
Factoid : This was the first ever Trek episode to show us the Klingon home world.
Quote : "I am Klingon! If you doubt it, a demonstration can be arranged!" - Worf to Kurn

"It is a good day to die, Duras... and the day is not over yet." - Worf to Duras; the first time this 'Klingon' saying is used

Plotline

When a powerful traitor is uncovered in the Klingon high council, Worf must make the ultimate sacrifice for the good of the Empire.
