Worf hasn't heard anything from his brother Kurn since chancellor Gowron brought the glory days of the house of Mogh to an end. All of the sudden he arrives on the station and asks Worf to perform the Mauk-to'Vor-ritual. He wants to regain his honor in the next life. Since suicide is out of the question, Kurn believes only Worf is capable of giving him his honor back by killing him. Meanwhile Kira and O'Brien are on their way home. Near the Bajoran border they are startled by a sudden high energy discharge. It looks like a cloaked ship exploded, but there's no debris. When the two want to take a closer look, a Klingon ship stops them. They claim to be conducting military exercises. Kira doesn't trust it, neither does Sisko. He gives permission to take the Defiant for a better look. Written by

Sisko's firm refusal to allow the Klingon death ritual aboard a Federation space station resembles a legend commonly told about British India. The story goes that a group of locals petitioned a British official to respect their custom of throwing a widow onto her husband's burning funeral pyre, to which the British official replied that they would have in turn to respect the British custom of holding any man who commits such action to be guilty of capital murder and bound for the gallows.

Kurn's prosthetic nose comes loose from his Kingon make-up. When he talks in the infirmary, you can see it wiggle freely. See more
You know what... my one regret is, Worf? That we weren't raised together. In the Empire, on Earth, it wouldn't have mattered. But the sons of Mogh should have never been separated.
Lt. Commander Worf
On that, we both agree.
