Star Trek Fan Collective - Klingon
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Of all the fan collectives released so far, Star Trek Fan Collective: Klingon has the largest number of episodes to draw from, so there will inevitably be controversy over which episodes were selected (via fan vote). While the two Tribble episodes are among the franchise's most popular, the Klingons are somewhat tangential characters, and "Trials and Tribble-ations" was previously included on Star Trek Fan Collective: Time Travel. The space might have been better spent on the Original Series' "Day of the Dove" or more TNG and DS9, though that might have turned the set into Star Trek Fan Collective: Worf. --David Horiuchi

Because Worf was a main character in TNG and later DS9 there are many Klingon episodes in those series. So there is no way to include them all. With TOS however, just the addition of "day of the dove" would make it seem more complete. There, is another reason it could have been included. All three Klingon captains make an appearance in one DS9 episode mentioned below.
The episode "Blood Oath" from DS 9 could have been included. It has Kor, Koloth AND Kang (all three characters played by the orignal actors) in it. In fact, I think it would have been a better episode to include than "the sword of Kahless". (somehow the episode seems redundant to me. perhaps an inclusion of a "b" story would have made it a better episode"
For the TNG Klingon arc, "Reunion" should have been included. The events that happened here are after "Sins of the Father" and are referred to in Redemption (Worf killing Duras, the first apperance of Gowron, Picard becoming the arbiter etc).
"Barge of the dead" seems like a token episode just to include at least one show from "voyager".
It is a good collection in the sense that it has shows from all the series. I have all of DS9 on DVD. So the ones in the set are repeats for me. (The Q collection, for example, has only one DS9 episode. The rest are TNG and Voyager only...but it is a good collection because it has EVERY Q episode in it. Unless you count the TOS episode "Squire of Gothos").Read more ›
What is great about this set is that the most important episodes are united in a way that is easy to access. Here, in a quick longitudinal way, the viewer can witness the evolution of the crucial parts of the Klingon evolution from the original series through TNG and other series. Other reviewers have described the specifics of the episodes, so I won't.
In a way, I wish that I had waited before purchasing the entire boxed set of TNG. Not only are all the bum episodes included - at least one in four on each disk - but if you want to follow a story such as that provided by the Klingon plight, you have to play a bunch of disks and each episode is very hard to find. It is extremely cumbersome.
So here, you get ease as well as the cream of the crop of TNG and other series by theme. I wish I had wiated until these sets came out!
