Having had my wrists slapped for resurrecting an old thread (apologies for that - so used to forums where the rule is to find an applicable thread rather than start a new one but it's on me for not reviewing the rules) so here is a new thread as I want to have a moan about Worf in this episode. Worf doesn't half take the piss here. "oh Captain, yeah so, how you doing? Yeah, you know that stuff that's going down with the Klingons? I know it's short notice but can I have some time off to get involved with a personal matter?" I have worked with those kinds of people and they suck! Just gallivanting off at the last second leaving us fools to cover their work. Does the Fed not have a HR policy on taking leave? And then, to add insult to injury, he implores Picard, his boss, to get involved in the civil war, something Picard has already said he doesn't want to, so Worf just throws his dummy out the pram and quits on the spot? Not even a, "Yo cap, can we just have a chat in private?"! Does Starfleet not have mandatory notice periods? Does his calling out Picard in front of the leader of the Klingons Empire count as gross insubordination and therefore he gets dismissed straight away, thus allowing him to do one? Because if that is the case then the bloody guard of honour he gets is absolute bull. Now speaking of people in this episode who display flagrant insubordination and generally tw*ttery, Hobson on the Sutcliffe can go do one. Top quality racism, slags off his new boss, what a prick!
