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

Alexander makes a comeback.
26 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ST:TNG:110 - "New Ground" (Stardate: 45376.3) - this is the 10th episode of the 5th season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Worf gets a surprise visit from his mother (Georgia Brown in her second appearance as Helena Rozhenko) who brings Alexander to the Enterprise (this time played by "Family Ties" alum Brian Bonsall, in a first of many appearances). But it's not just a visit, his mother says that she and Worf's father can no longer take care of Alexander (since they are getting old) - so Worf must learn to deal with his son wanting to stay on the Enterprise permanently (even though Worf is completely against this).

At the same time, the Enterprise is picked to test a new propulsion method called a soliton wave (basically surfing along a warp current instead of using Warp Drive Nacelles anymore).

But when the experiment goes awry and Alexander becomes trapped in a bio lab, can Worf deal with the situation, come to terms with Alexander's abandonment issues.

Trivia note: Geordi mentions that seeing the soliton wave testing is like watching Zephram Cochrane perform the first warp test (which they do later on in Star Trek: First Contact!). We also get to see the Enterprise school in this episode, which Alexander is enrolled to (as well as a field trip to the Enterprise zoo!). And, we hear the legend of the fight between Kahless (the first Klingon Emperor) and his brother Moroth, as well as see Worf's calisthenics program again, and hear mention of Worf's mate/Alexander's mother, the late K'Ehleyr.
