Summary

For the last 1,500 years, the Klingons have revered him as the first Klingon emperor, the legendary warrior who united their people and taught them the meaning of honor. Myths and fables have grown around the memory of Kahless, but the truth of his incredible life has remained a mystery...until now. A clone of the original Kahless now holds the title of emperor. He thinks he knows all there is to know about his mighty ancestor, until the discovery of an ancient scroll throws the accepted stories into doubt and threatens to tear the Klingon Empire apart. Surrounded by treachery and rumors of revolt, he can trust no one - except Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Lieutenant Worf of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The past collides with the present as the true story of the historical Kahless sparks a battle for control of the entire Klingon Empire. Yet even if Worf and Picard can prevent a civil war, the revelations contained by the scroll ensure that the Klingon Empire - and the rest of the galaxy - will never be the same.

Fantasy Epic

THAT'S WHY THEY CALL IT TREACHERY, CAPTAIN
I love the Klingons. My Fantasy Football Team are The Klingons. Because all the Star Trek productions are so expensive in comparison to the length of them, I use the % sales to stock up.

BLOOD WINE
Unfortunately I found this one boring. The production and the narrator were good, the story just did not grab me. This may appeal to fantasy epic fans, as the Klingons belong to Houses and they fight each other outright or politically for power.

An adapted version & not a follow along

I didn't notice when I used my credit for this that it is adapted. It's very adapted & misses a great deal of context. This isn't for a student or dyslexic reader as it's hard to follow written text while listening to the story 😭

Abridged Sucks!

Decent overall but, as with most Star Trek audio, it is abridged. That is my only issue with this. The story was good. As was the voice talent and sound effects. But lit eft me wanting more content that no doubt was edited out for audio.

Kahless Still Lives On

Loved it, loved it loved it Kahless still lives on through the voice of Mr. Conway because he made you believe it. You don't get many books involving the Klingon culture that much but, this story here makes up for all of the Lost stories that can be told about them. The one thing that I can say I came away with from this story was to believe in the man not the myth and if you have faith you will always have hope. Lastly Captain Picard will always be an honorary Klingon. whether he wants to be or not. Kup-PLER

I thought I paid for a complete novel, not half!

The performamce was really good. Its been awhile since I heard the original Kahless. Though it almost deters the other voices of the Iconic characters though it makes up with narrative acting as well as score and sound.

BUT! I was expecting the tales of the actual Kahless from himself as it was in the physical novel. This version completely removes those parts which leaves it half-@$$ed.

What really happened when Kahless faced his brother?

Who was the woman he loved and carries an amulet as a keepsake?

Unless you read the physical novel, you will never know.
