Storyline

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

DaiMon Bok is once again a big jerk!
6 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

In the first season of "Star Trek: The Next Generation", DaiMon Bok tried to drive Picard crazy and kill him. Well, the fun-loving DaiMon Bok is back--and this time he pledges to kill Picard's son...though as far as Picard knows he doesn't have one! So, the Captain thinks back and realizes that one woman might have given him a son many, many years ago. What follows is a strange little episode, as Picard tries to make up for lost time with a rather irresponsible and strange young man. And, of course, he tries to stop Bok before he can do very bad things.

All in all, this is a decent but forgettable episode. It's mildly interesting to see the Captain think about what his life could have been like and the ending didn't seem all that surprising. Worth seeing but nothing more.
