In one episode of Next Generation, Commander Riker was temporarily assigned on a joint services program to a Klingon vessel as first officer. The Enterprise was infected by a being that damaged it and spread to the Klingon vessel as well. When the Kingon captain was trying to attack the Enterprise, Riker decided to transport him over to the Enterprise by tricking him, instead of assassinating him. Riker took command and saved both ships from being blown up by the other. However, a Klingon in that situation would have killed the captain jsut because of a difference in opinion. > Since I have received an optimistic response, I am going ahead > with my project.

The Klingon homeworld is called Klinzhai by the Federation and Quo' Nos' or something like that by the Klingons. I will send the correct Klingon name in a future message.
