Star Trek: The Next Generation “The Outrageous Okona” (part 5 of 6)
Then we waste what feels like ten minutes watching Worf head to the turbolift, walk out of the turbolift, and cruise through corridors. And right now, millions of Trekkies are salivating over this extended view of the ship’s interior. To the rest of us, however, it’s twenty seconds of walking. And I wish I were exaggerating here.
Eventually, Okona is found in a woman’s quarters, and the two are wrapped in a loving embrace. Worf totally barges in on them. Okona blows off Worf’s order to report to the bridge, and goes back to making out with his latest blonde conquest. I mean, the guy is totally getting his mack on right in front of Worf, which is just not right. Worf yells, “Now!” So Okona swaggers on up to Worf and stands in front of him with his hands on his hips.
Worf growls, “I’d like that! [?] But I have my orders!” Okona replies, “Some other time.” Hopefully, they’re talking about potentially having a fight, and not oiling each other up. Okona turns to Blondie, points to Worf, and says, “Remember what it took to drag me from your arms!” Yeah, I think a Klingon standing in the room would kill my mood pretty quickly, too.
