Worf is worried when his pre-teen son Alexander, at the age to commit to becoming a warrior, refuses the ceremony. Picard grants him a visit to a Klingon outpost, where the boy gets a taste for Klingon fight training. They also become the target of a murder attempt, which K'Mtar, a trusted adviser of Worf's House, ascribes to the surviving sisters of the House of Duras, who are tracked down, involved in illegal mining, but deny and suggest a mystery killer. K'Mtar fails to convince Alexander or Worf that the boy should enroll in a Klingon school to get rid of his human moralism. The truth is about a spectacular assumed identity. Written by
