I believe the only likely answer is that it differentiate Worf together an Ambassador.

You are watching: Why does worf wear a sash

I can"t honestly beleive he has it completely to phone call if he"s a Klingon or not, since one look at his head will provide u that answer.

 

Another thought is that Worf is in reality reckognised together a Warrior in the Klingon Empire, and there because that wears Klingon Ranks and also badges ~ above his Sash. I have actually seen his decorations on his Sash readjust over time which can confirm this possibility.

 

Does anyone recognize for sure?

Looking roughly the web I came across an interview with Michael Dorn whereby he is asked around the sash. His answer was that the original sash, according to the writers, was considered to it is in a family members heirloom.

 

I wonder how Worf would have come by this sash, unless it was with him, when he to be rescued ~ the massacre.

 

As much as the later, different sash"s, I have no idea.

The sash was a badge no of military rank, however of his location as a boy of the home of Maug.

Years ~ Worf"s tourism on the companies D, Worf to be assigned as first officer on the Klingon bird of food Rotarran (DSN "Soldiers the the Empire") and told Jadzia the he determined not to wear the sash as component of his Klingon uniform because, by the time, the residence of Maug had actually been offically desolved because of Worf"s view on the Klingon/Cardasssian conflict.

However, at the end of the same episode Worf was given membership in the residence of Martok and also there after wore that emblem on his sash.

A baldric is a wide, generally ornamental belt worn roughly the waist and over one shoulder that is frequently used to bring weapons (such together swords). Baldrics room well-suited towards carrying larger weapons that this nature due to the assistance system available by its unique design. Words baldric can likewise refer to any belt in general, however this usage is much less popular.

 

Historically, baldrics were offered to confer the location of the one wearing it. They are still offered to this day, but typically just with formal army wear.

I"m kinda surprised the empire wouldn"t piece Worf of his baldric, as component of his discommendation from the empire.

In the episode Sins the the dad at the start of the tribunal (or whatever it was called) Duras struggle Worf and also pulled off the baldric saying that Worf didn"t worthy to wear it. Worf had actually it ~ above later during scenes top top the Enterprise but did not wear it during any type of scenes top top Qo"noS ~ Duras eliminated it.

 

I don"t know if this method anything yet in the episode Reunion as soon as Worf beamed over to Duras" delivery after K"Ehleyr was killed he removed the baldric prior to leaving his quarters through his bat"leth. Whether he removed because he to be going ~ above a Klingon ship or no I don"t know.

^I guess because that the same factor they allow Deanna tool approximately the enterprise in civilian clothing!

 

Did they let Ro Laren keep her Bajoran earring come respect she religion, also though she was wearing it in the wrong ear?

 

Perhaps Worf is allowed to undertake his sash out of respect to his culture. It is tough to say whether this is true or not, since he is the just full-blooded Klingon in Starfleet that we see.

Deanna got a uniform at some point... Didn"t that take place when she actually ended up being an officer? I believed that to be briefly noted somewhere along the way.

 

Ah well, I"d permit a Klingon stay what he want to wear, personally!

When Ro very first beamed up to the companies Riker do her remove the earring because it wasn"t component of the regulation uniform. That wasn"t until the end of the illustration Ensign Ro that she placed the earring back on after talking to Picard.

 

With Worf, i think the was just a means to affix the Klingons the TOS v TNG.

Well everything the factors I found it exciting how the Sash adjusted over the course of the 7 year operation of the series (didn"t really have actually it on no longer by the moment of the 4 movies did he?)

his sash way two things....

 

his present rank, and family home. If you notice in TNG and also DS9 it transforms a bit over the years. Also when martok invited him to oin his house even the residence of mogh couldn"t be re-built with the dishonor that both the kilngon empire and himself. There to be a final snapshot of worf top top a publication cover an i can"t mental the name of the book, however it shows ambassador status and also not what he to be while in starfleet.


Why would certainly Star Fleet permit him to wear something that is clear not part of the Starfleet Uniform? ns think the was just to look cool for the show.....

That doesn"t rather fit, considering when we an initial see ensign Ro, Riker provides her take her ear-ring off.

Not only that but the Klingons and also Federation to be formal allies. Bajor wouldn"t reach that standard until DS9.
