Re: Why wasn't Worf in Code of Honor?
It was Gene's show, he was the one in charge and is every bit as responsible for the final product as Russ Mayberry was.
Not like the concept of a scapegoat is anything new. I don't see it being a stretch at all that Gene was in on this fully and only fired the director when everyone started criticizing the episode.
