However Gowron boards, asking hasty help to prevent a Klingon civil war, claiming the sisters of the late traitorous pretender Duros head a corrupt conspiracy supported by at least three fleet commanders, Picard is the only established acceptable arbitrator. Gowron scorned Worf, till he tells Duros senior was the traitor to the Romulans- only to be told it's too late given the Duros fraction in the Council. Worf arranges a leave to visit his brother Kurn, serving on a Klingon ship- he feels both old fractions must be swept away, four commanders would side with their family. Worf pulls rank as family eldest, ordering loyalty to the confirmed Gowron, only later their support would be made dependent upon family rehabilitation.

Quotes

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Captain's log, stardate 44995.3 - We're en route to the Klingon homeworld, where I will participate in the installation ceremony of Gowron, the next designated leader of the High Council. This visit should also provide an opportunity for one of my officers to correct a grave injustice.

Nicely Sets the Stage

It is so sad for Worf that because he has honor, he is seen as dishonorable. Duras is dead but his family is determined to keep Gowron from taking his rightful place. Just as the final pronouncements are made and the council chiefhood is to be transferred, in step the two Duras Klingon women and a teenaged son of Duras. They claim the right to the office and it sets up a civil war. The Duras clan is in league with the Romulans and is receiving assistance from them. Worf, who has been promised by Gowron that his name will be cleared, must leave the Enterprise to fight beside his brothers. Unfortunately, with the odds against them, the Gowron's people are at a great disadvantage. The Federation can do nothing because on the surface it looks like an internal affair (no Romulans have been proved complicit). At the conclusion of Part One a familiar face appears in full Romulan garb. This is the narrative hook going into the next season's opening episode.
