This always bothered me. I mean, I guess Dax had a backstory that made her having at least a bit of skill with the bat'leth feasible, but other non-Klingon Starfleet characters using the weapon made very little sense. I've wielded a practice one, briefly and very amateurishly, and it doesn't seem like an easy weapon to learn real skill with at all. (For context: I actually have a reasonable level of competence with longsword, katana, and nunchaku.)
As the brilliant philosopher once said... Everybody, have fun tonight. Everybody, Wang Chung tonight.
