Geordi can barely curtail his enthusiasm at being able to test out a new theory of transportation, as Worf's mother boards the Enterprise with his son and news that Worf's Earthly parents can no longer care for him.

Storyline

The Enterprise goes to planet Belena 3 to assist in testing the new propulsion method soliton waves. Lieutenant Worf is visited by his mother Helena and young son Alexander Rozhenko, who intends to stay with him. He soon finds the burdens of paternal duties cumbersome, especially as the frustrated schoolboy proves dishonorably mischievous. The experiment goes horribly wrong... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

La Forge says seeing the soliton wave is "like being witnesses to Chuck Yeager breaking the sound barrier, or Zefram Cochrane engaging the first warp drive". The latter foreshadows the plot of the motion picture Star Trek: First Contact (1996). See more »

Goofs

The computer twice reports the location of Alexander. But Alexander is not wearing a comm badge, which is how the computer keeps track of where anyone is. See more »

Quotes

[last lines]
[Worf had considered sending Alexander to a Klingon school]
Lieutenant Worf: Klingon schools are designed to be difficult. The physical and mental hardships faced by the students are meant to build character and strength. However - if you wish to face a greater challenge, you may stay here with me. It would not be easy - for either of us. But perhaps we can face the challenge together.
Alexander Rozhenko: I accept your challenge, Father. I will stay.
Lieutenant Worf: I believe your mother would be pleased.

Another Kid Episode
1 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I find the episodes when Alexander shows up to be rather tiresome. I guess a kid actor has to be really good to draw my attention. I know Worf must accept responsibility for his child, but it seems to be a distraction from the science fiction element. Alexander is angry about being dumped on Earth with his grandparents and acts out when he is brought to the Enterprise. Worf uses his Klingon thing to demand obedience from his son. At no time does he consider the young lad's experience of losing his mother (and his father). Worf is too proud to accept help, seeing himself as a failure for not being the perfect father. Meanwhile, a scientist is testing a wave structure in space that will up the warp potential to many times the current limitations. When a crisis occurs with this, Worf must constantly contend with his son's problems. Eventually, the little guy gets into big trouble. I know that it is necessary to bring the psychological world into an ensemble cast like this and show Worf's human upbringing, but it becomes a bit sappy at times.
