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.
I've no gripe with the episodes that made it to this box set; they are all great representatives of their particular series. Several time travel episodes I thought could have been included are:
"Timescape" (ST: TNG) - On board a runabout, Picard & several crew members rendezvous with the Enterprise only to discover their starship frozen in time and moments away from annihilation.
"The Visitor" (ST: DS9) - Tony Todd guest stars as the adult Jake Sisko attempting to save his father, who is trapped in temporal limbo.
"Future's End (Parts 1 & 2)" (ST: Voyager) - A face off with a futuristic Federation timeship temporally catapults Voyager back into 20th century Earth.
"Storm Front (Parts 1 & 2)" (Enterprise) - Archer and his Enterprise crew find themselves back in time in an altered WW2 Earth, having been influenced by the Temporal Cold War.
Special features present text commentaries on three episodes: "Tomorrow Is Yesterday" (Star Trek: The Original Series), "Yesterday's Enterprise" (Star Trek: TNG), and "Little Green Men" (Star Trek: DS9).
How about a Fan Collective of all the episodes involving the Holodeck? The seminal "The Big Goodbye" and "Elementary, Dear Data" have to be solidly in that compilation, as well as the rollicking "Bride of Chaotica," while the cute "Take Me Out to the Holosuite" (ST: DS9) might also make it. Anyways, any chance to revisit with Dixon Hill, Data's Sherlock Holmes, Prof. Moriarty, Captain Proton, Arachnia (and her irresistible pheromones), and Lt. Barclay is a very good thing indeed.
