This episode picks up after the giant Armageddon-like battle with the Borg. Now, things are calm and it's a time to regroup, relax and take stock. And, for Picard and Worf, it's a time to reconnect with family now that they are just outside the Earth. And, there's a minor plot involving Wesley viewing a message left to him by his father--a father who was killed in action long ago.

As for Worf, he's embarrassed by his human adoptive parents. While nice folks, the always stolid and gruff Worf doesn't know how to act in front of the crew and he's obviously uncomfortable. And, in Picard's case, he heads back to his ancestral home in France--and his homecoming is awkward, as his relationship with his brother is estranged. It seems that the brother wanted Jean-Luc to remain home and run the family estate--whereas Jean-Luc wanted the adventure of space travel. All this gives Worf and Picard a chance to think through where they've come in life and where they are headed.

This is a wonderful follow-up episode to the great two-parter that preceded it. Great because it explored the frailty of two important characters and did it in a way that seemed real and quite touching. Exceptionally well acted and among the very best shows in the series.
