DS9's writers explained it with a clever joke.

That was sufficient.


But Manny Coto just couldn't leave well enough alone, and created the most fanboyish storyline ever seen in Star Trek.

Best ignored IMO.

Disagreed. I thought it was awesome -- the sort of prequel story that, had it been in the first or second season, would've made ENT a success.

And hey, a situation like that WOULD be embarrassing to all involved, and certainly wouldn't be a tidbit of history that Klingons would want to be well-known.

Actually, all the Augment episodes of ENT were fantastic. Gotta love that Arik Soong.

only my opinion but the episodes that focused on the ridge changes where waste of time. There weren't enough ENT episodes to begin with. To me having to explain the differences between the Klingons in TOS and the rest was making mountains out of molehills

Yes... I think DS9's "Trials and Tribbilations" had it right by basically saying. "There IS an answer, but the Klingons aren't telling." Should have been left that way.
