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

L'Kor: Why did you come here Worf? If you had found your father, you would have found... only dishonor.
Lieutenant Worf: If he had been captured, as you were, if I had found him here - I would be glad to see him. There is no room in my heart for shame.
L'Kor: I can only hope that if *my* son came here - he would be Klingon enough to kill me.

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?
