    1. A cautionary tale, a parable if you will, on the dangers of placing too much importance on the historical literality of our mytho historical cultural icons.Most people would understand and agree, for instance, that it neither lessens nor invalidates the importance of either George Washington or the quality of honesty if he did not, in fact, chop down a cherry tree and then unequivocally plead guilty to having done so as a child, nor does it lessen his importance in the winning of the American Re [...]


    2. This book pissed me off like no other book I have ever read It completely copied so many deferent stories that have been told and written There was not one new idea in the book It was like reliving Brave Heart, but William Wallace is Kahlass I fill like I have been taken advantage of because an am such a geek to read these books It is like the book someone wrote that put together Star Trek and X men The geeks of the world like X men and the like Star Trek Will lets put them together no matter ho [...]


    3. A good tale of the Klingon world What if a hero is not as we think of him, but he is also a hero Interesting idea well enough explored inside the world of Trek.


    4. More like a 2.5 I just couldn t get into this one It s told in alternating chapters In the present day, the clone of Kahless and the emotional state of the Klingon empire is on a knife s edge A scroll in the original Kahless s own hand has turned up and it blows the mythos out of the water It would be the equivalent of Jesus s diary showing up and we learn he was just a man who did great things with the help of friends and that maybe that really great thing we thought he did, actually that was P [...]


    5. Kahless the most revered of all historical Klingons Through stories of Kahless they learn about what it means to be Klingon They learn about honor, duty and warfare It is now 1500 years in the future and there is a new Kahless Kind of like how they select Dalai Lama s The Tibetans look for attributes of the past Lama in young children to find the new one These are Klingon s if there were a race completely polar opposite the Tibetan Buddists, it would be The Klingons So how do they do it Or how d [...]


    6. I definitely have a Vulcan attitude towards Klingons so I wasn t expecting to enjoy this book so much as spend what would have otherwise been a boring eight hours with it I was surprised by the masterful composition I found myself enjoying descriptive writing rather than mentally tagging what system of composition the author had learned I think the character development would be fun even for a non Trekker, but don t trust me on that, as I am one My inner religion geek was thrilled with the autho [...]


    7. It s been a while since I read a star trek book This one no work of great literature, but is a great background of a non central character and fills in a lot of Klingon Lore for those who are interested in such things The story is good, the flaw however is that Friedman seems to have trouble writing characters The voice of Picard in this book is entirely off.Either way, it s a nice easy read for any trekkie a non trekkie will be completely lost, there is a lot of back story I m looking forward t [...]


    8. A scroll recovered from an archeological site throws into doubt the story of Kahless the Unforgettable, who is revered by the Klingons The clone of Kahless enlists the aid of Captain Picard and Lieutenant Worf to prevent opportunists from using the occasion to effect a coup d etat.Although his prose is frequently clunky, author Michael Jan Friedman passes the test of a Star trek author, which is whether his novel would make an effective addition to the filmed canon He has a firm grasp of the cha [...]

    10. This is best described as a fantasy novel set within the Star Trek world The book has two main plotlines The first is the recent discovery of an ancient Klingon book, the last book of Kahless, that recounts the true story of the first Emperor of the Klingon Empire The second storyline follows Kahless Reborn, Worf and Picard as they try and deal with the ramifications of the discovery of this newly discovered book.


    11. Oh, this was fun Alternating between the present an ancient Klingon scroll is found, revealing the true story of Kahless the Unforgettable and risking the faith and the political stability of the Klingon people Only Picard, Worf, and a few other familiar faces can prevent disaster and the distant past in which we meet Kahless himself and learn the story behind the legend A well written insight into Klingon culture, and I ll admit, the end made me a little misty eyed Good stuff.


    12. A well written book and one of the better Star Trek Novels.An archaeological excavation as an archaeologist, the Klingons have to improve on their techniques of excavation rather than kicking and hitting possible artifacts uncovered a scroll, presumably written by Kahless himself This scroll, once made public, puts everything the Klingons believe in into question as it is blasphemous to every tale ever told about Kahless.I would highly recommend this book.


    13. Kahless is a must read Two parallel stories running at the same time The original Kahless on the Klingon homeworld and the Kahless clone at the time of Jon Luc Picard As the original story unfolds, Jon Luc and the clone Kahless try to save the Klingon empire It is a Star Trek classic and my favorite STar Trek novel.


    14. Spoiler filledWe find a lost Book of the Klingon Bible.But it s not as shocking as it would seem The chapters marked Heroic Age are actually the heretic scrolls in question Modern Age chapters deal with Kahless who, although offended by the scroll, is deep into discovering a plot to overthrow Gowron Eventually we realize that the boring is as important as the mythical.


    15. This is 2 seperate stories One is a fantasy telling the real story of Kahless The other involves the Enterprise helping stop a conspiracy in the Klingon empire A strange mix really, I suspect fans of the Klingons will love it though.








    16. It s the story of the historic Kahless as he really was and how it s affect his clone in the Star Trek s present day It was all right but slow.
