Having discovered survivors from the Romulan attack on Khitomer (the infamous attack that established peace between the Klingons and the Federation), Worf resists becoming one of them, even though he becomes a prisoner, himself. He is puzzled by their lack of desire to escape, but they explain that it's not a prison: they have chosen to remain since returning would be a great dishonor to their families, who have assumed the warriors died in battle. Instead, Worf 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

We've put aside the old hatreds. Here, Romulans and Klingons live in peace. I won't allow you to destroy what we have.
Do not deceive yourself. These people are not happy here. I see the sadness in their eyes.
That's not what I see when I look in my wife's eyes. I married a Klingon. So you see, when I warn you not to disrupt our lives here, I'm not speaking just as a jailor; but as a man protecting his family.
