Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

I think the general misunderstanding about Klingon strength came about in TNG, whenever a baddie alien came on board, Worf was sent in, only to have his ass promptly handed to him to the abject horror and surprise of his crewmates who clearly expected him to easily handle the situation. He was nothing more than a visual guage to the audience to show how super-strong some enemy is, and also implying that Worf should be able to easily dish it out to any conventional non-adversary without breaking a sweat.

That, plus the seemingly natural "berzerker" aspect of Klingons in hand-to-hand combat as seen in both TNG and DS9 may give the perception of superior strength.
I may appear unoccupied to you, but at the molecular level, I'm really quite busy.
