    "Worf has tended to get pigeonholed as a born-again zealot for conservative Klingon values and cultural norms which, like all conservative values and cultural norms, are ludicrously ahistorical and inauthentic. I still think it was wrong to take Worf in that direction and it irreparably damaged him as a character"

    Yup. I only ever liked most of Worf's main storylines as a kid. In my growing up I have seen how awful they are, and thankfully how I have moved on. I accept I liked then them as I was lost in a bit of a difficult and warring teenhood, and needed something shallow and unreal to lose myself in. It helped then, but now I ask for more growth and more empathy from my characters, rather than having them stuck in the past.

    I really loved this episode.
