Re: Was altering Kurn's memory "Kahlessian"?

What they could've done was, once Worf was part of the House of Martok, was go after Kurn and try to find out if his memories could be restored.

Or, if they had killed Kurn, they could've gone back in time and "unkilled" him. No - Kurn was dead, even if his body wasn't. Why try to undo what had happened?

Because that's what Worf does about his Honor throughout most of his existence in the franchise. He tries to undo what had happened.

Re: Was altering Kurn's memory "Kahlessian"?

I just think this episode made Worf look like an idiot, and the ending had to compensate for it. I just don't think it would have gone down this way at all. It would have been pretty much this:

Worf: Yeah listen man, I'm down for this ritual, but Riker got in my shit back on the Big E for burning incense in my quarters. This Sisko guy is way more strict. Let's go somewhere where we can do this without ramifications, or better yet --- let's get a month leave, we'll bring Jadzia along, go settle some old blood feuds, see how you feel after a few weeks, then if you still wanna do it, we'll take care of it before I head back to DS9. Hell, you might even die in battle!

That would have been a great episode.

Uh, no he doesn't.

When Worf was discommendated by K'Mpec, he didn't do anything to regain his honor. He got it back because he supported Gowron, who gave it back to him. Then Gowron stripped his honor again, and Worf didn't fight it. He joined the House of Martok, but the House of Mogh was ended. I suppose Worf's personal honor was restored by joining an honorable House, but really the point is that the House of Mogh was dead. Why try to bring back Kurn, then? He was as dead as his House.

Why not just ask him to join the House of Martok with him, then?

I have a feeling Martok would not have liked what Worf did to Kurn at all.

Kurn was long gone ("Sons of Mogh" - fourth season) by the time the real Martok showed up ("In Purgatory's Shadow" - fifth season), and Worf himself didn't join the House of Martok until "Soldiers of the Empire", also in the fifth season.
