In The Chimes at Midnight
in the second Myriad Universes anthology, Echoes and Refractions
It involves a certain apparent contradiction in Klingon behavior, and a scene that I imagine would have taken place many, many times, and finally we see it in print.
When Maltz starts talking about honor when they're interrogating David, Kruge bites his head off! (figuratively, in case there's any confusion).
"Do not lecture me with platitudes about honor!
You have been a constant thorn in my side with your spineless compunction!Why don't you show your honor by protecting the entire Klingon race from this scheming human petaQ
Go Kruge! Testify, loDnI'
I'm also glad to see Thelin used. I know in the Crucible
trilogy he died back in the TOS era, but the Crucible books have their own continuity, and what happened there doesn't necessarily have to have happened in other TOS- or TOS-movie-era stories (hint)
Anyone else had scenes you'd envisioned and then later had them pop up in a novel or story?
