Star Trek: TNG 2.20 - The Emissary

Review 129 - Episode 125 (29th June 1989)

The One with Worfs Bird

Worf gets laid! Yep, it happened here (and he obviously doesn't perform safe sex either as we'll see in future episodes)
Quite drunk writing these final 3 season 2 episode reviews, so apologies if they are brief and rather pointless.
K'Ehleyr (and that's the last time I'll be writing that) arrives in a cool photon torpedo type device. She tells the crew that Klingon's from Kirks day are getting ready to "awaken" and they are going to tear up some Federation ass if they see it. She's there to stop it. And she's Worf's ex bird.
This is a good Worf episode and his relationship with her is strained and causes him to lose his rag a few times. She's a good character and also pushes the right buttons with Worf as we see aspects of his character not seen before.
The solution, of Worf pretending to be captain is well done, humorous and tense at the same time. I also really like the poker scenes at the start. Lovely character building.
Good episode.


Overall Star Trek Franchise Rating so far: 376/650

From what I can tell the only difference from this and your sober reviews is that I don't think you usually give away the ending in the review. Still, good job, your reviews are the only one's I trust to view the show recently more as cinema, and less complaining about science, technology, and the like.
