WHAT IF: A STAR TREK SERIES - [STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE] - LOOKING FOR PAR'MACH IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES
Less smiling, perhaps, was Lenara, who not only did not particularly appreciate Klingon culture per se, but also frowned upon the friendship established between her partner and Worf: it was very difficult, in fact, for the woman to get out of training sessions with the bat'leth, or any other Klingon bladed weapon, without a few cracked ribs or bruises too many. Add to that the fact that, just recently, Worf had also attempted to initiate a Klingon mating ritual with Jadzia herself, who (aware of Klingon customs) had been able to put her colleague in his place without too much trouble and without further besmirching his honour, and the possibility of Worf and Lenara becoming good friends had become very remote indeed.
«I guess Worf has learned his lesson once and for all,» Ferrari remarked, in a vain attempt to stop laughing at the image Dax had a little earlier painted of a dejected Worf returning to his quarters on the Defiant. Jadzia arched an elegant eyebrow, less amused than she had been at the start of their conversation via subspace: «Worf is Klingon to the core, despite being raised by humans. The ritual ended by respecting their code of honour, regardless of its conclusion: he will not repeat the experience, especially at the risk of being dishonoured by his actions. Besides,» she added, addressing Lenara more than Ferrari, but still looking towards the human, «I made it very clear to him how Lenara is my Par'Mach'kai.»
