Baldric?Edit

Was this ever referred to as a baldric on screen? -- Renegade54 02:46, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure I see that that matters. We see a carrot and we know its a carrot. Same deal here. Nevertheless, yes, it was referenced in Insurrection. --Alan del Beccio 02:56, 4 December 2006 (UTC)
It was referred to in Insurrection? Where? Can you provide the quote and context? Federation 04:12, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
The context in Insurrection was that Worf reported to bridge late (due to his metaphasic ring induced 'puberty') and Picard said "straighten your baldric, Commander" as he walked past him. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 82.38.134.18 (talk).
What I would really love is an exhaustive list of episode where Worf wears his baldric, since if I recall he didn't wear it all the time. Also it would be interesting to know why he wears it since it would not appear to be part of the starfleet uniform and Ensign Ro was not allowed to wear her bajoran earring because it was not starfleet issue.

When this project is done (haha) there should be a full list of references and appearences of everything in trek canon, from the extraordinary to the mundane. You are welcome to help out by getting started on this one. Jaf 05:57, 10 December 2006 (UTC)Jaf
He was probably allowed to wear it as a form of commanding officer's discretion (as Picard did with Troi's low cut suits). Although, given that Worf has had a couple of commanding officers and no one (not even Jellico, who was quite hard on Troi on the uniform issue) mentioned it I doubt this is the case. I think it's better to assume that Starfleet itself lets him wear it as he is the first Klingon in Starfleet. Same with Nog and that back of the head thing he wears.

Worf's SashEdit

In TNG why does Worf's sash color change from gold to silver? Is it just to signify his promotion or is there some greater meaning? --Jennifer; Lilyholic 01:56, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

There's no explanation for his baldric change in the series. It occurred between season 1 and 2, when he became permanent chief of security, so alongside his uniform change (red to gold) and some make-up changes. His first baldric, the gold one, was a close approximation of Kang's from "Day of the Dove", so they may have wanted to update it for the late 1980s when Worf became even more of a main character.--Tim Thomason 02:43, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps a gold baldric on a gold uniform wouldn't have looked right? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2.102.68.122 (talk) at 12:12 UTC on 26 April 2014.

Andorian BaldricEdit

Isn't the Andorian baldric nothing more but a fancy Sam Browne belt? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.50.134.181 (talk).
