Re: Klingon Uniform question.

You think Klingons are that picky about who they're going to fight?
I assume they try not killing members of their own house.

Practically all of the fighting was in space anyways from how the episode presented itself.
Wasn't there fighting on the homeworld too? Also why not have different markings for the ships or color?

Re: Klingon Uniform question.

As tradition bound as Klingons are putting different markings on their uniforms or ships would likely seem an admittance of illegitimacy.

Re: Klingon Uniform question.

It is assumable they had an entire registry of ships just like the federation has, and by identifying the ship and her captain one could identify where their loyalties lie based on who they served and so on up to Duras or Gowron. as far as the fighting on the home world, the only scene we see there is the bar and Kurn tells Worf to look around, who fights for who? here we fight as Klingon warriors not as this side or that side.

Re: Klingon Uniform question.

Klingons basically wear the same uniform regardless of rank or station. They don't use rank insignia, for example, because a Klingon can be counted on to actually be the rank he or she SAYS they are.

Re: Klingon Uniform question.

That's from DS9's "Sons of Mogh"

Worf and Kurn impersonated Klingon officers, to steal classified data from a Klingon ship and killed that poor fellow who figured out they were lying.
