If a person doesn't enjoy WOTW then they may as well give up now. I watched it the other week and it stands as probably one of the top 5 episodes of the entire series, I think....

HOLY SHIT YEAH I AM. 

 

What a great, feature-length episode. :omg:

And now you can watch and see how poor old useless Security Chief Worf becomes full on badass Second in Command Worf. Criminally underused in TNG he really shines in DS9.

Yay! :D

 

For some reason I was worried you weren't going to think much of it, but yeah it's an amazing episode. You're into the real DS9 now. :)

I liked the fight. I like Bashir’s talk at the start about Klingons preferring hand to hand in close quarters to to expect a lot of lacerations, broken bones and blunt force trauma :lol:

 

The only things I wasn’t so keen on about it were the double fisted Star Trek fighting (according to tng and DS9, hitting someone with both your fists at once works in any combat situation) as it’s a bit daft and the second thing was how shit it made the Klingons look - these badass, feared, bloodthirsty warriors getting whooped en masse by star fleet and bajoran security.

That episode has so many great moments. My favourite is just a couple of guys in a bar.

 

 

I love the subtly of DS9's dialogue. I've watched this scene many times over the past 20+ years, but only just picked up on Garak's subtle sarcasm at 1:07.

Quark: I like interacting with my customers - like you and I are doing right now. Talking to each other, getting to know one another.

 

Garak: I can see the attraction.  For you.

You take a good double fisting and see how you come out the other side. 👊👊

As documented in another thread in this folder, I watched Terminator 2 for the first time last weekend, and my girlfriend pointed out that the morphing T-1000 was the inspiration for Odo. Sort of, loosely – Odo’s a heroic organic character rather than a mechanoid villain. And one’s a police, and the other’s disguised as a police.

Spoiler

Plus Odo is like T-101, being a good-guy who’s from a race of a bad-guys.

Odo’s morph effect looks ropey these days, but it must’ve been eye-catching to see a version of a cool new movie visual effect in a TV show back in 1993.

So last night I was like

After all, why not? Why shouldn't I watch Way of the Warrior again?

 

And something in the episode I literally never realised before and foreshadows later stuff (spoilers for later in the season obviously, I see some people are watching for the first time now so stay away):

 

Spoiler

When Odo is showing Garak how he can imitate the creation of liquids, I literally only just realised years later that it's setting up the possibility of changelings being able to do that so that it all makes sense later when Martok sheds his "blood". An audience seeing that for the first time would have no idea that was what was going on, but the writers were already there, setting everything up without you knowing in a really subtle way.
