Product Description

Star Trek Fans voted online for their favorite Klingon episodes form the Star Trek television series which resulted in Star Trek: Fan Collective - Klingon. Get ready for brilliant battles thrilling adventure and pulse-pounding action when the federation encounters its arch nemesis - the Klingon.System Requirements:Runtime: 686 min.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: SCI-FI/FANTASY Rating: PG UPC: 097360709742 Manufacturer No: 070974

The fourth volume of the Star Trek Fan Collective series tackles the Federation's arch-enemies-turned-sometimes-allies, the Klingons. It begins in chronological order with Enterprise's premiere episode, "Broken Bow." A new starship, Enterprise NX-01, is rushed into service when a Klingon crash-lands on Earth and Starfleet decides to return him to his home world. Then skip to two episodes of the Original Series, "Errand of Mercy" and "The Trouble with Tribbles," which focus on the conflicts between the Federation and the Klingons. But the two factions had begun working together by the time of The Next Generation. In "A Matter of Honor," Riker (Jonathan Frakes) spends some time serving aboard a Klingon ship, and his Enterprise shipmate, Worf (Michael Dorn), delves deep into his Klingon culture along with his brother Kurn (Tony Todd) in "Sins of the Father." Then in the two-part "Redemption," a bridge between the fourth and fifth seasons, the Klingon empire teeters on the brink of civil war. Worf arrived at the space station Deep Space Nine when the Klingons offer to join the Federation in the Dominion war in "The Way of the Warrior." There he remained for "The Sword of Kahless," in which the search for a mythical artifact turns into a very real struggle for power. Last are DS9's humor classic "Trials and Tribble-ations," followed by Voyager's "Barge of the Dead," in which B'Elanna Torres (Roxann Dawson) has visions of the Klingon afterlife.

Of all the fan collectives released so far, Star Trek Fan Collective: Klingon has the largest number of episodes to draw from, so there will inevitably be controversy over which episodes were selected (via fan vote). While the two Tribble episodes are among the franchise's most popular, the Klingons are somewhat tangential characters, and "Trials and Tribble-ations" was previously included on Star Trek Fan Collective: Time Travel. The space might have been better spent on the Original Series' "Day of the Dove" or more TNG and DS9, though that might have turned the set into Star Trek Fan Collective: Worf. --David Horiuchi

When I was young the biggest crime of the 20th century was the cancelling of the original series. 'Errand of Mercy" was one of my favourites and I'm glad to see it here. I would have liked to see 'Day of the Dove' though. All in all, a good collection.

HASH(0xa3c5b450) out of 5 stars Episode list for classic Trek Klingon episodes April 22 2006
By Wayne Klein - Published on
This is an excellent collection covering Trek lore about the Klingons from "Enterprise" through to "Voyager". It is missing some key episodes for example the episode from "Enterprise" where we find out how the Klingons lost the bumps on their heads for a long period of time (during the original "Star Trek")and since this is a four disc set it could have been filled out with a few more episodes from "Deep Space Nine". While I'm not disappointed in this set it could have included quite a few more episodes including "Day of the Dove" a classic third season episode of The Original Series.

The episodes for this set are as follows:

Enterprise: Broken Bow. Captain Archer and the new crew of Enterprise are charged with returning a Klingon with information that could avert a war. The Sooliban an alien speices involved with a temporal war has been charged with stopping Archer and killing the Klingon.

Star Trek The Original Series: Errand of Mercy.
Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock are trapped on an alien world of pacificist by invading Klingons where they were trying to convince the aliens to join the Federation. Kirk and Spock use terrorist tactics to try and create a revolt among the aliens not knowing that they have their own agenda.

The Trouble with Tribbles: Klingons show up at a space station where the Enterprise is protecting a grain shipment. The Klingons and the Enterprise crew come into conflict on the station while Kirk has to figure out how to best protect the important grain shipment.

ST: THe Next Generation: A Matter of Honor, Sins of the Father, Redemption Part 1 & 2

These four important Next Gen episode provide us with a unique glimpse into the Klingon mind and universe. Commander Riker serves on a Klingon ship as part of an officer exchange program. When the captain of the Pagh suspects that the Enterprise deliberately infected his ship with a corrosive bacteria he decides to attack Enterprise.

"Sins of the Father": Enterprise receives a Klingon exchange officer who claims to be Worf's brother. He tells Worf that their name is about to shamed and that their deceased father is to be labeled a traitor for the massacre at Khitomer. Worf must turn to Captain Picard to be his advocate with the Klingon High Counsel to save his honor.

"Redemption Parts 1 & 2": Two the best Next Gen episodes featuring the Klingons, this two part episode serves as sequels to "Sins of the Father". Worf's family was discommendated by the Klingon High Counsel. When the new emperor Gowron insists on Federation involvement Picard turns him down he refuses to help restore Worf's family name. Civil War breaks out among the Klingons and Worf elects to serve with Gowron and battle the faction trying to take down Gowron.

Deep Space Nine: "The Way of the Warrior","The Sword of Kahless", "Trials and Tribble-ations". Three strong episodes from DS9 the last one is a whimsical visit to "Star Trek: The Original Series" where the crew of the Defiant must travel back in time to stop a Klingon saboteur from changing history in the episode "The Trouble with Tribbles".

Star Trek Voyager: "Barge of the Dead". When Torres is injured in a shuttle accident she finds herself on the Barge of the Dead traveling to Gre'thor or Klingon Hell where the dishonored souls go.

I suspect we'll have the usual assortment of text commentary from Michael and Denise Okuda. I wouldn't expect any audio commentaries on this set however. The package design featuring a prominet picture of Worf is similar to the other fan collectives that have been released. The "Enterprise" episodes are in widescreen, the others are all full screen releases. The image quality will reflect the individual sets these are drawn from as Paramount is using the same transfers as the boxed sets.

HASH(0xa3d86e58) out of 5 stars A good collection but....(some spoilers) Nov. 14 2006
By David C. Tanner - Published on

I only wish that the set had two more episodes. The first one is "day of the dove" (TOS) with Kang. There were only three major Klingon episodes in TOS. Two of them are on here" (Errand of Mercy" has Kor, "Trouble with Tribbles" has Koloth.) but not the third one which is "day of the dove".
Because Worf was a main character in TNG and later DS9 there are many Klingon episodes in those series. So there is no way to include them all. With TOS however, just the addition of "day of the dove" would make it seem more complete. There, is another reason it could have been included. All three Klingon captains make an appearance in one DS9 episode mentioned below.

The episode "Blood Oath" from DS 9 could have been included. It has Kor, Koloth AND Kang (all three characters played by the orignal actors) in it. In fact, I think it would have been a better episode to include than "the sword of Kahless". (somehow the episode seems redundant to me. perhaps an inclusion of a "b" story would have made it a better episode"

For the TNG Klingon arc, "Reunion" should have been included. The events that happened here are after "Sins of the Father" and are referred to in Redemption (Worf killing Duras, the first apperance of Gowron, Picard becoming the arbiter etc).

"Barge of the dead" seems like a token episode just to include at least one show from "voyager".

It is a good collection in the sense that it has shows from all the series. I have all of DS9 on DVD. So the ones in the set are repeats for me. (The Q collection, for example, has only one DS9 episode. The rest are TNG and Voyager only...but it is a good collection because it has EVERY Q episode in it. Unless you count the TOS episode "Squire of Gothos"). "The Way of the Warrior" from DS9 gets a text commentary on here, (that isn't included on the DS9 Season 4 set) which I enjoy.

To sum it up. The collection would be more complete with the inclusion of
"Day of the Dove" , "Bload Oath" and "Reunion". It would still fit on four discs.

HASH(0xa405b2ac) out of 5 stars Could have been more glorious! Aug. 5 2006
By Jerome D. Taylor - Published on
The Klingon culture is by far the most interesting one in the ST Universe.The Tribble double play episodes were not needed. What about when Worf went to Boroth? What about when Worf killed Gowron on DS9? What is the fascination with the Tribbles? I bought this collection, and I'm not totally disappointed, but it could have been alot better. Disc 2 defines the collection for me.

HASH(0xa40bc90c) out of 5 stars good way to organize some of the best of Trek scifi July 14 2006
By Robert J. Crawford - Published on
One of the greatest things that TNG did was to transform Klingons from simple evil enemies (in ST) into a highly complex culture that is at a watershed: evolve and become part of the intergalactic community, or simply fall into the old patterns of fighting. These themes are wonderful and deep, played by truly excellent actors and quite spell-binding in their drama. This is the best that I have ever seen on TV.

What is great about this set is that the most important episodes are united in a way that is easy to access. Here, in a quick longitudinal way, the viewer can witness the evolution of the crucial parts of the Klingon evolution from the original series through TNG and other series. Other reviewers have described the specifics of the episodes, so I won't.

In a way, I wish that I had waited before purchasing the entire boxed set of TNG. Not only are all the bum episodes included - at least one in four on each disk - but if you want to follow a story such as that provided by the Klingon plight, you have to play a bunch of disks and each episode is very hard to find. It is extremely cumbersome.

So here, you get ease as well as the cream of the crop of TNG and other series by theme. I wish I had wiated until these sets came out!

Warmly recommended.

HASH(0xa3d7d198) out of 5 stars The Klingon Heart April 24 2006
By Jay Williams - Published on
I'm surprised they're leaving out "Heart of Glory" the first encounter of the Klingons by TNG viewers. It's our first chance to see Klingons in a new light and to learn that not only are they impressive warriors, but also that their warrior ways are guided by a strong sense of honor. We also learn that they live life to the fullest (perhaps why they're so fierce) because they believe that once dead, the body is "just an empty shell." Likewise, by leaving out "Soldiers of the Empire" we're missing out on another piece of the Klingon puzzle, as this episode shows not only the Klingon rites of succession, but also their Viking-esque lust for glory in battle. I do believe the collection has some important episodes for we Klingon fans, but it seems to be missing the heart of this race. As for the fan collection vs. yearly collection debate, I side with the fan collection. All of the series have their weak moments, and to pay an outrageous price and only get a few episodes you might enjoy, is similar to the days before iTunes, when we had to buy any record a group put out even if all we wanted were the "cool" songs. Before the fan collection, I was relegated to buying the VHS version of individual episodes. It's hard for a sci-fi fan to live with old technology.
