It was to provide him with a struggle. We never knew quite how human he actually was so we had to read into Nimoys performance which made it all the more powerful. No other vulcan has been as interesting.

Making Worf half human was completely pointless.

Ok raised by humans. I thought that was pointless when the idea should have been that Klingon and human relations had moved to that point after The Undiscovered Country.

Well TCU hadn't been made when they started the Worf raised by humans idea, actually TUC used Khitomer purposefully to tie it in with TNG. TUC having Worf's Granddad in it was silly.

Well we got B'Elanna a few years later, so there were Klingon-human relationships. But as you said, Worf being raised by humans and living amongst humans in Starfleet was thus kinda half-human and he was also portrayed that way. Didn't he prefer prune juice to bloodwine ?

Prune juice = "THIS IS A WARRIOR'S DRINK!" (or something close to that)
