    You know, Klingons, for all the cheese they got saddled with over the decades, were sometimes given some truly amazing moments like that one. They’re this hyper macho, warrior driven and hide-bound culture, but they value friendship in a beautiful way. They really get loyalty to a friend in a way that no other in-universe culture does.

      Also, Klingon men and women are both warriors and either can go to Stovokor if they have an honorable death.

      Klingons are like those ancient warrior tribes that seemed barbaric at surface level when historians first studied them, but were found to be a lot more rooted in community, duty and survival once you get to know their ways. They are a product of surviving in the environment they did

    They also grasp mental health better than people might think. Such as Martok and Worf watching Garak face his claustrophobia in order to save them:

    Martok: There is no greater enemy than one’s own fears.
    Worf: It takes a brave man to face them.

    And this admiration is coming from people who consider the Cardassians to be bitter enemies, which is even more astounding given how devious and dishonourable Garak can be.

      To be fair though, both Worf and Martok are among the best Klingons. Somehow, I don’t think Duras, or even Gowron, would have felt the same

            i’m still convinced they simply have two urethrae rather than two dicks, which seems impractical. two urethrae would explain the double-stream, and, especially, why they were parallell/pointing the same direction. if a klingon had two dicks, the two pee streams would be going in two seperate directions, and that’s not what we saw in the episode.

              Why was the pee stream in an episode? What are they putting in Star Trek now?! WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE???

                “Look! We’re edgy now! They just did drugs, and now there’s a klingon peeing!”

                – Kutzman, probably

                It was in an episode of the first season of Discovery, which I pretend mostly didn’t happen and the show actually started with season 2.

    It’s wholesome, but it’s also got a little too much “Geico caveman” energy.

    Of course you are free to ship any character to any shore you want, enjoy! However, in universe Dax is waaay beyond gender.

    I love his shit eating grin when the other Klingon sees Jadzia.

    Don’t you remember the great Kurzon Dax?!
