Re: Episode of the Week: 3x10 "The Defector"
In Unification, Picard was able to leverage his relationship with Gowron to get a ship, because at first he was told to take a hike. That made sense. It makes little sense here.
I think it makes sense.
The Federation and Klingons are allies and may have a mutual defense pack. Plus, it's not like the Klingons to turn down the opportunity to mix it up with someone, especially the Romulans.
