Storyline

Commander William T. Riker is charged with hosting Klingon commander Kurn, who takes his place as first officer as part of an exchange program. As expected his ruthlessly authoritative command style gets on everyone's nerve, but the worst is yet to come: Kurn reveals himself as Lieutenant Worf's younger brother, and demands he joins him in dealing with a blood feud, as their late father's honor is challenged by accusations of treason to the Empire in league with the Romulans during a bloody attack. The Enterprise sets course to the Klingon first city, while Picard fears legal and diplomatic repercussions. Data finds indications the Klingon records were doctored, possibly at Klingon High Council level, so the Enterprise crew sets out to find out the truth... Written by KGF Vissers

How Did the Klingons Evolve?
17 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

in a previous episode, Riker joined a Klingon vessel as second in command, granted all the privileges he would receive on the Enterprise. Now a Klingon officer comes on board the Enterprise and demands that the crew fall into line in the ways of the Klingons. Things get a little tense, but he is fair. Then one day Worf goes to see him in his ready room and finds out that this man is really his brother and he is there to report a really significant bit of information to Worf. Worf's father, who died in a battle against the Romulans, is seen as a traitor on Klingon. It has been decided by the supreme council that he gave the Romulans information that led to the deaths of thousands of Klingons. As is usually the case with this race, Worf must go to the planet and challenge the accusation. If he can't prove it, he will pay with his life. The episode is about a series of events that took place in the dark past and a very real result that leaves some unanswered questions.
