Needless to say, St Nicholas’s (alleged) Klingon origin helps to explain the zealous violence he expressed toward Arius at the Council of Nicaea. Before he threw the punch heard around the Church, the Bishop of Myra was heard to exclaim, “It is a good day to die!” Historians still debate the precise meaning of the exclamation.
Some have speculated that St Nicholas was in fact the famous Star Fleet commander Worf, son of Mogh, who is alleged to have traveled back in time in the USS Defiant. Beyond the iconological evidence, however, little has been submitted to substantiate this wild suggestion. Star Fleet emphatically denies any manipulation of the timeline, intentional or accidental, by Commander Worf. A spokesman for the Department of Temporal Investigations states: “We’ve come a long way since the wild and undisciplined days of Captain James T. Kirk. Journeys into the past are strictly prohibited.” The Klingon High Council is equally vigorous in its denial: “We are Klingons, not saints!”
UPDATE: Commander Worf was just promoted to the rank of Captain and assigned the USS Donner. The Federation News Service tracked down Captain Worf. Our astute investigative reporter bluntly asked him: “Are you Santa Claus?” With a twinkle in his eyes, Worf replied: “I am not a merry man.”
