Small problemEdit

In a Klingon ritual suicide a Hegh'bat is plunged into the heart. (TNG : "Ethics")

This indicates that the Hegh'bat is the knife used to commit suicide. The Hegh'bat article indicates that Hegh'bat is the act of suicide itself and doesn't mention a specific type of knife to be used. Can someone please check with the episode and determine which of these situations is correct? -- Avron 05:45, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Removed and a question Edit

This is twice the number of a normal human heart. (Apparently, supernumerary heart chambers do sometimes happen; see "A Five (5) chamber heart (Cor Triatriatum) in Infancy: A rare congenital heart defect" PMC 3948969 ).

Trivia, not relevant to Klingons.

Also a question: though they are from the same episode, shouldn't the part about Klingon hearts having 8 chambers and the suicide fact be mentioned in separate sections? I can't find that fact in the dialog for "Ethics" anyway. --LauraCC (talk) 15:53, April 17, 2017 (UTC)
