Lieutenant Worf proudly returns, by shuttle, from a holiday in the Klingon Empire as winner of a bat'leth 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

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. I won Champion Standing. I am looking forward to resuming my duties aboard the Enterprise. However, I am anticipating a troubling situation.
