Great, great episode. One of TNG's best and, I think, one of the definitive Klingon episodes. I liked these Klingons a hell of a lot more than Ron Moore's drinking biker gang.
Really? I thought Ronald moore's portrayal of Klingons was what made them cultured and likable, unlike their portrayal in voyager and enterprise. I cite the episodes 'Ethics and 'Redemption' as examples of his positive development of Klingon culture.
Those episodes simply stereotyped the Klingons. Cultured? They like to get drunk and tear their own shit up for no good reason and then cut and run if things don't go their way.

Heart of Glory and A Matter of Honor were the actual episodes that gave the Klingons some depth.
Self-appointed Knight of the Abrams Table! - Thanks Marsden!
