Well possibly -- but Worf views honour as being something very internal, and intregal to his self-identity. He doesn't tend to shape his idea of "honour" around what the Empire thinks should be "honourable", and I think regardless of how things are in the Empire, it is very important to him that he be able to view himself as honourable -- possibly even more so than that he should have the High Council's official sanction.


To commit to any act that he himself would consider "dishonourable" is, for better or worse, a line which Worf is not willing to cross.


He killed Gowron when he viewed him as acting dishonourably and detrimental to the Empire. The Council were doing nothing less when they blamed his father. Worf should have disembowelled K'mpec and Duras for even suggesting that Mogh take the blame.

I'll add that K'Ehleyr outwardly rejected Klingon culture in favor of human traditions.

Worf attacked Gowron out of rage and I'd say more for the practical reality that the Empire was the only thing standing between the Dominion and the whole Alpha Quandrant. Honorable or dishonorable Gowron's actions demanded someone to challenge him, considering the scope of what was at stake.

Let"s face it friends - the character of Worf suffered from internally inconsistent treatment from the writers both within and between the two series he appeared in.  I thought his relationship with Alexander's mother was the best relationship deivsed for Worf in the series, and one of the few believable depictions of sexual chemistry in ST (thanks Ms. Plaxton!)  It made the subsequent neglect of Alexander all the more bewildering.

Worf's relationship with everyone was strained, his parents, brother, son and mates were all treated with gruff embarassment. He didn't know how to just be, he was always walking around clenched like an inmate during his first prison shower.

To be honest, I'm kinda getting tired of the "woe is me" routine from Worf...  I have no family, I have no heritage, I have accepted disgrace for the ump-teenth time to save the galaxy... 


 


Kinda gets old, and what kinda man doesn't finally stand up for himself and say screw y'all...  I'm not putting up with this anymore!  ?!?!!?!?


 


PS - Good to see you again OtakuJo...  it's been too long...

I tend to agree. The more I go into the Trek the more I see how he stands against him self, in some way...


Although, some people defend Worf within Kilingon point of view very well...


P. S.


All praises for Michael Dorn, he did tremendous job... I guess writers wanted to exploit his Trek flavour as much as they could, even a bit more...
