Oh, man. I had no idea that Forged in Fire
went into that. The Augment Virus explanation for the "Klingon Question" wasn't really what I would have picked out on my own, but I did want an explanation, and something along those lines was probably all that was left as a possibility after Koloth and Company showed up with Ridges on DS9
. So, since that's what we have to work with, I'm always pretty interested to see how various authors approach it. Which is a long-winded way of saying that I'm even more interested in Forged in Fire
than I was just thinking it was a Sulu story.
