Although he only appeared in four episodes of The Next Generation, Gowron is one of the most unforgettable Klingon recurring characters that we see in the show. With his bulging eyes, threatening smile, and fighting prowess, Gowron becomes the Klingon Chancellor and appears during some of the most important moments in this period of the Klingon Empire.
In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez, Amy Nelson, and Justin Oser discuss their impressions and thoughts on Gowron's appearances in The Next Generation and the importance of his character to the show. The Next Generation episodes discussed are "Reunion," "Redemption," "Redemption II," and "Rightful Heir." Although Gowron goes on to appear in seven episodes of Deep Space Nine, only his appearances in The Next Generation are discussed in this episode.
