The Rules of Acquisition: A Star Trek Deep Space Nine Podcast

38a. Klingons! or Prelude To Blood Oath

October 31, 2016

It's a Very Special Episode! Instead of jumping straight into the events of the next episode of Deep Space Nine we take a detour and ruminate on Klingons past; from the past of the original Star Trek series, to an older yet "more recent" past of Enterprise, and the past of three Klingons in particular: Kor, Koloth, and Kang. Just how different are these Klingons on DS9 from their portrayals on TOS? How the hell do they explain the head ridges to these old guys who don't want to wear them? What about more famous old guys like Christopher Plummer who don't want all that time in the makeup chair? How does he get off? Comic books? Happy meals?! We talk a lot of stuff some of our viewers probably know a whole lot more about. Let us know what you think before we get into "Blood Oath" proper.
