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 humour 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 HoriuchiSee all Product Description

I have picked up copies of others in this range when they've been on sale at reduced price - the full price would make them less appealing to me - and have been surprised at how much I have enjoyed episodes from series like "Enterprise" and "Voyager" that I'd previously written off after sitting through a few episodes at the time of broadcast and not found very diverting.
The big problem was that I always found the Klingon episodes to be a bit worthy and dull - all that endless talk about "honour" and "duty" used to tie the writers in knots, I thought - so I approached this set rather reluctantly and yet I was surprised to find myself enjoying it thoroughly. I suspect that the ongoing story arcs tended to get lost if, as a casual viewer, you had to recall events of a season or two back in episodes you might not even have seen, but viewed all together, they all start to gel a bit more and the ties that bind the stories together start to make sense and these stories become all the more rich for it. I particularly enjoyed "The Sword of Kahless" (DS9) and "Barge of the Dead" (VOY) for their idiosyncratic spin on the Klingon saga, and this set does give you the "Enterprise" feature length pilot "Broken Bow" as well as the all time laugh-fest that is the original series' "The Trouble with Tribbles" (nice to be able to compare and contrast it with its DS9 counterpart) all in one convenient package.
There's a lot to enjoy in this set, even if you're not the world's greatest "Star Trek" fan.
All in all, a nice set for beginners and a nice set of convenience for those who have already seen the episodes.
