Re: What happens to Klingons who are good tactics but suck at melee?

It's not just challenges from below Klingons have to worry about but execution from above for incompetence or so their superior can save face, so people can rise purely by dead mens shoes without having to challenge themselves.

In Klingon Jellico remarks to gowron how absurd elevation by melee skill was, gowron replies that "right" will win or somesuch.

Also in the brilliant six book errand series, decently ranked officers have bodyguards. And if you're from a noble house, you can probably get more, so once you're up there, you're fine...assuming you can trust your bodyguards!
