I think Heart of Glory is still the best Klingon-centric episode the franchise produced.
You just reminded me of another reason I got tired of Trek -- when it became a "franchise" instead of a TV show. Like a McDonalds, a 7-11 or something, a different one on every corner.
Agreed. I pretty much stick to TOS, the TOS films, early-TNG and the Abrams films now as far as continued Trek consumption goes. The rest, while not terrible by any means, just feel derivative.
Early TNG? Interesting.

Interesting because I actually prefer early TNG to the later stuff. Yes, it's hit or miss (mostly miss) but it actually feels more like the future than do the later seasons. There's a sense of wonder and discovery that just isn't there later on when it seems we've charted most of space and keep running into the same rubber-foreheaded aliens again and again.
