Why was Worf's klingon girlfriend pretty?

Female Klingons are not attractive as a rule.

But Worf's girlfriend and the mother of his child was.

Unlike usual klingon females she had a nice row of straight shiny white teeth, instead of gnarled, yellow fangs.

She had very little klingon features other than the hair and forehead.

I just thought it was pretty bad how they made her look half human, cynical in a way.

Why couldn't Worf's girlfriend be a typical looking klingon woman? Did they think it would make her harder to relate to or less tragic?

Ah, but maybe they were ugly by Klingon standards. Beauty is in the eye of the needle, or something like that.

By typical Klingon woman do you mean throwing their tits out for all to see? That's pretty much the bar Lursa and B'etor set.

She is half human. She even says so in the episode. That is why she has smoother features.

Worf was raised by humans so it's quite possible that he might actually prefer women who have more human like features.

I disagree most sincerely.

Remember the two Klingon women who were hitting on Riker when he served on their ship? The one who was talking to him (Vekma) was SMOKIN' hot.

His little black book says he does. Jadzia, Ezri, Deanna, half-human K'Ehleyr...he likes 'em as smooth as possible.

Foreheads, that is.

This.

She would have been my choice to play Seven of Nine.

I liked how Riker was open to a three way with the two Klingon women!

That one Klingon's breast-feeding joke seemed to have Riker considering the possibilities.
