5154Re: [Star Trek Books] Imazdi II
- Aug 2, 2002I too really enjoyed Imzadi II. I agree that it's not quite at the level of Imzadi, but it's fun, and it showcases some sides of Worf's personality that we only ever got to see hints of. We'd already seen that Worf could be diplomatic if he absolutely had to be, so it makes sense that he'd use diplomacy in dealing with Lwaxana. And we got to see some of the 'sensitive' side that Worf so obviously had, but so rarely showed.
But, I would have loved the book if only for one seen only. The one where Worf was introducing Deanna to his parents. 'You know, your mother and I met the same way.....' I just about hurt myself laughing at that.

II. It wasn't quite on par with Imzadi, but it did a superb job of
bridging the gap between Worf's feelings for Troi in TNG and his
relationship with Jaxdia in DS9.
As for Worf's allowing Luxwana to treat him the way she did, I can
say as a person who recently got engaged, you will sometimes bite
your tongue for the good of your future bride's (and you own) sanity
and feelings. Worf loved Troi enough that he was willing to take a
few barbs from Mrs. Troi and to roll with the punches--because he
honestly wanted to marry Troi and make her happy. And despite the
long-standing feud-like nature of the relationship of Troi and her
mom, Worf may have not wanted to add to that. So he bit back his
instinct to fight back and did what he may have felt was the more
honorable thing--to try and keep the family unified and not fighting
But that's just one guys opinion...
