Storyline

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 Moviedude1

Among the least of the two-part episodes.
29 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This second part of "Birthright" is better than the first part, though neither are especially good compared to the other two-parters from the series. In fact, most of the other two-parters are among the best shows--and so I was expecting so much more from this one.

The first plot from part one involved Data having a near-death experience and trying to replicate it. However, inexplicably, this plot is completely abandoned here. Instead, the entire episode is about Worf once he lands on a planet filled with prisoners from the Kitimer Massacre and their children. Their Romulan jailers aren't exactly harsh with them--they're more like members of the same very passive and peace-loving community. In fact, they're like a model that illustrated that both races can live happily as peaceful beings--so it's up to Worf to destroy all this and show the Klingon children that violence, honor and death are the best ways.

While the show is interesting and would have made a nice single episode of the series, it is no better and SHOULD be since the other two- part shows are all very, very good. Only about average.
