Earl Grey 50: Y.O.K.O. You Only Klingon Once

Klingons on TNG.

From forehead ridges to bat'leths, from High Council politics to a Romulan-orchestrated civil war, the story of the Klingons was greatly expanded on The Next Generation. In this episode of Earl Grey, Daniel Proulx, Darren Moser, and Phillip Gilfus discuss how having a Klingon on the bridge led to a continuing exploration of the Klingon people and their society. We also examine reoccurring Klingon characters, story-lines, and what aspects of the Empire were expanded on in DS9, Voyager, and Enterprise.

Special guest Andi Vanderkolk, aka @FirstTimeTrek, provides a different perspective as someone who began watching the series as an adult. Join us as we find what aspects of TNG speak specifically to children and what concepts remain universal, despite any fan's age.
