Michelan Sisti ...


The Enterprise gets surprise messages and visits by stunningly crafty means for the rogue Ferengi 'DaiMon' (commander) Bok, who announces he'll exact retribution on Picard after 15 years for killing Bok's son in a legitimate space battle. The object of vengeance is Jason Vigo, a 23 year-old dashing climbing athlete and adventurer, whom Bok claims is Picard's son by the late Miranda Vigo. Jason is picked up for protection and found genetically compatible with both, but carrier of a rare hereditary degenerating disease. Data finds Jason's roguish minor criminal record. Ferengi reveal Bok was deposed as mentally unstable, but he still gets his ultimate confrontation, when the whole truth proves crucial. Written by KGF Vissers

Sequel episode.
4 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ST:TNG:174 - "Bloodlines" (Stardate: 47829.1) - this is the 22nd episode of the 7th and last season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

As happens with any series that's been on as long as TNG, they start having sequel episodes and this episode is no exception. DaiMon Bok (from the 1st season episode "The Battle", this time played by Lee Arenberg instead of Frank Corsentino), seeks to avenge his son because he thinks Picard killed him while he was captain of the Stargazer. In "The Battle", he gave Picard the Stargazer back as a "gift" but at the same time used a mind probe to make him relive the incident and ruin his life. With that plan averted, DaiMon Bok lost his rank.

Now, he's back and a DaiMon again - to avenge his son, he will now kill Picard's son (which comes as a surprise to Picard since he never knew he had a son!) - his name is Jason Vigo. Picard feels he has a responsibility to protect him against Bok and goes to his rescue on Camor IV before it's too late.

But, is Jason really Picard's son?
