S06.E07: You Are Cordially Invited

Recommended Posts


Suddenly desiring to wed within the week on DS9, Worf and Jadzia go through their own Klingon rituals: Worf on a four day bachelor party with the male members of the crew & Jadzia deals with her prospective mother-in-law, who totally opposes the idea of "an alien" marrying into her Klingon household.

The most interesting part of this for me was the Klingon wedding vows.  They told the story of the male Klingon heart, which was strong but faltered because it was alone.  So the gods made the female Klingon heart, which was even stronger but tempered with wisdom.  The hearts joined together and killed the gods.

That's interesting because it's saying that the female heart is both stronger than wiser than the male.  I'm not sure I've seen that belief reflected in what we've seen of Klingon society.  But whatever.

I have to admit if I was Dax I would not be married today, because I would have told off her future mother in law, but wouldn't have apologized.  I guess she empathizes with Klingons more than most, though.
