  • Geordi LaForge, get back to engineering and tune up the warp engines!

    This show is rather dull. I watched it once only because I remember Burton from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Why was his name LaForge, he sure doesnt look French like Picard did.

    Maybe if he had some guest stars like the Borg it might be interesting. Or perhaps Worf and few of his Klingon friends telling the stories of Kahless while sitting around a barrel of blood wine and handing it out to the children --- Stories like the one where he fashioned a sword with his own hands, by dropping a lock of his hair into the lava from the Kris’tak Volcano and twisting it into a blade. Another epic story relates how Kahless fought his brother, Morath, for twelve days and twelve nights because Morath had lied and brought shame to his family. And the story of how Kahless is also said to have fought off an entire army single-handedly at Three Turn Bridge----- and other stories listed on Wikipedia like Kahless was not known as merely a great warrior, but also as a great lover. One day, five hundred warriors stormed the Great Hall at Qam-Chee. The garrison fled in terror. Only the Emperor Kahless and the Lady Lukara stood their ground. Together, they fought through the night and one by one the attacking warriors fell. Finally, after many hours, and with the Great Hall ankle-deep in blood, they emerged victorious, and made passionate love. So began the greatest romance in Klingon history....

    Then they might get more viewers.
