An episode that suffers in retrospect from us having had about 50000 Klingon episodes mining similar territory over the next decade and a half. It's easy to forget how fresh, fun and different this felt at the the time. The Klingons are back! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
As noted, there are silly aspects to the scripting, but once again Rob Bowman steps up to smooth things over with some top notch direction. There's not much depth, but it is big dumb ffun.
And its also Michael Dorn's showcase. After excellent support work throughout the year he seizes his first focus episode with glee and pretty much guarentees himself a bigger and more pivotal role in season 2. And all in an episode where Tasha is especially ineffectual in writing and performance.
