* LockedInAFreezer: Krenn and two loyal subordinates are locked in his ship's walk-in freezer by a traitor. The situation is even more serious for the hero than usual because Klingon biology is keyed to very warm temperatures (he found the spaceport at White Sands, New Mexico pleasant, if a bit dry), which makes them very susceptible to frostbite.

** A subtle one in the TOS epsiode [[Recap/StarTrekS3E7DayOfTheDove "The Day of The Dove"]], Klingon transporters are seen operating with a different color pattern and without the characteristic screeching sound. Instead of waving it off as [[SpecialEffectsFailure a mistake]], Ford took this and ran with it, indicating that the sound from Federation transporters came from a secondary carrier wave added to provide a bit more safety; the ever-practical Klingons decided a silent transporter was more valuable than a one percent decrease in errors.

* OpeningTheFloodGates: When Tagore hears combat outside of his stateroom on the ship taking him to the Klingon homeworld, he opens the hot-water taps in his bathroom, closes the door, and hides under the bed. When his assailant barges into the bathroom he gets a face full of scalding water, distracting him long enough for Krenn to take him out.
