Episode cast overview:
Counselor Deanna Troi (credit only)


Having discovered survivors from the Romulan attack on Kittomer (the famed attack that established peace between the Klingons and the Federation), Worf resists becoming one of them, even though he becomes a prisoner, himself. Instead, he begins to teach the younger Klingons about their ancestry and the proud tradition that exists among them, much to the chagrin of the Elders. Written by Moviedude1

Did You Know?


Many fans were disappointed that the story Data's dreams from Star Trek: The Next Generation: Birthright: Part 1 (1993) was not continued in this second part, as they felt that was more interesting than Worf's experience. See more »


[Worf and Toq are on the hunt]
Toq: I can feel my heart pounding!
Lieutenant Worf: Yes. This is the moment where life and death meet. This is what we are - warriors.
Toq: I was never taught that.
Lieutenant Worf: There is much you were never taught.

More Klingon LIfe and Death With Honor Stuff
29 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Worf arrives on the planet, seeking his father, he encounters a couple of generations. One generation is a group of old Klingons who have accepted their fate, living in relatively comfort with a Romulan commander, who has actually married and produced children with a Klingon woman. What happens is the usual "right to express your Klingon being" stuff that is genetic, I guess. Worf walks in and begins to disrupt the culture. The children, who are mixed race, begin to feel alienated, leaning toward their Klingon side. For about the fiftieth time, Worf decides to become a martyr rather than allow himself to be held, which is fine, but he is so full of himself that he doesn't recognize the delicate balance that exists here. We also get an answer to Data's dilemma, his recurring surreal dreams. This is interesting, but in the scope of things, not all that big a deal. I have one concern with the Worf thing. Where is the Prime Directive here?
