Season Ep :
In TNG's "The Dauphin" Wesley asks Worf how to get a girl. Worf screams a blood curdling scream, then states that "Men do not roar. Women roar. Then they hurl heavy objects, and claw at you." About the men he says "He reads love poetry... he ducks a lot." When Wesley declines this advice Worf advises him condescendingly to "Go to her door. Beg like a human."
In TNG's "In Theory" Data asks Worf for relationship advice. Worf replies "Klingons do not pursue relationships. They conquer that which they desire!"
Now watch this episode with those lines in mind. Worf's seduction routine here is nothing like any of that. In fact, he "begs" a good deal more than is common in human dating, now or in the 24th century.
Kahless is said to have fought the battle of Qam-Chee a thousand years ago. Yet in "The Sword of Khaless", he is said to have made his sword 1,400 years ago. Was he really 400 years old at Qam-Chee?
Kira claims that the house she's going to stay at is on the Holana river, and that you can see the river from every room in the house. Huh? Does the river form a moat around the house or something? One would normally expect that in a house by a river, the river would only be visible from one or two sides of the house. Hard to see how you could see it from all four.
Does Worf really have the Defiant all to himself? In modern Naval forces it's very rare for an active warship to ever be completely deserted. There's always somebody aboard, even if it's just a few people to keep watch over the ship.
Great Moment :
Dax finally gets Worf to notice her! You GO, girl!
Worf must help Quark to get closer to his ex-wife, the lady Grilka. But while expending all his efforts on Quark's love life, he is missing the opportunity of a lifetime under his own nose.
