Storyline

The Enterprise responds to a disturbance in the neutral zone with reports of a possible Romulan attack on a Talerian freighter. There is debris in the area and the freighter has obviously suffered some damage. On board, they find 3 Klingons with one of them seriously injured. The survivors are not very forthcoming about what happened on their ship nor how three Klingon warriors even ended up on a space freighter. After the injured Klingon dies, the remaining two try to recruit Worf to their cause by appealing to his Klingon heritage and pride. They tell him they were looking for a new world where they could be true Klingons and that the debris the Enterprise found was actually that of a Klingon battle cruiser they fought and destroyed. The Enterprise soon comes into contact with a second Klingon cruiser that wants the renegades arrested and turned over to them. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Worf states that he was orphaned on the Khitomer outpost. This is the first mention of this location in Star Trek, but it was later used in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) as the site of the Khitomer Accords, which reconciled the Federation with the Klingon Empire. Fittingly, Michael Dorn also appeared in that film, as Worf's grandfather. See more »

Those Doggone Klingons
30 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Poor Worf. At times he must feel like a Republican in the Senate. He carries around all that Klingon baggage, all the rules of the warrior, and so on. Every time a few Klingons show up, he is ridiculed for working for the man (Starfleet, that is). In this episode a trio of renegades has been rescued from a vessel which they have commandeered after causing the deaths of a Klingon vessel. The engines on this ship have been compromised and it blows up. They claim that the empire has sold them out and if they can come up with another ship with the right stuff to fight a war, they will be in business. I wonder which ship they are talking about. One of their brothers dies shortly after arrival and they plot their move. Using all that junk Klingons have hanging from their clothes, they they assemble a weapon and go on a rampage. Before this, they have counseled Worf to join them on their glorious quest and to return to his true being. When a Klingon commander demands they be turned over for execution, Worf has mixed feelings. This is an interesting episode dealing with the empire which has become part of the Federation. Well acted and crafted.
