Lieutenant Worf proudly returns, by shuttle, from a holiday in the Klingon Empire as winner of a battle tournament. Back on the Enterprise nothing is normal, and everything keeps changing repeatedly. He's convinced it's not his memory. He finds himself promoted to XO and married to Deanna, with two children (instead of Alexander), but unable to work the command console during a battle with the Cardassians - a situation that never took place, even their empire is taken over. After analyzing Geordi was in all the subsequent transition scenes, standing at his autopsy, Data works out a quantum physics answer. This spells huge potential consequences, not just for Worf but for the whole ship, and even much more. Written by

When Worf checks his personal log after the Cardassian attack on the Enterprise, he accesses "Any personal logs referencing the bat'leth tournament", the log mentions he will not be able to attend and his brother must take his place. But it still has the same stardate given in the other universes after the competition has ended. See more
Personal log, stardate 47391.2 - I am returning from the bat'leth competition on Forcas III. The conditions were difficult. Several contestants were maimed, but... I was triumphant.
