Absolutely!  That's what makes it a CHALLENGE!  Inside the prison of that 
varray Fronsh saccharine mess of a story, there is a Klingon warrior epic 
trying to get out!  Maybe it can be shown as the tale of a wee vicious 
prince who voyages from world to world looking for an enemy worthy of 
battle, but finding only weak fools not even worth crushing.  Clearly a 
Klingon tragedy of the most soul-rending kind.
