Storyline

The Enterprise is ordered to proceed to an emergency rendezvous to collect a special envoy who is traveling from Starbase 153 to meet them. They are given no information about the nature of the emergency, just that they will be briefed by the emissary on arrival. She is K'Ehleyr, a Klingon who has been sent to deal with a Klingon warship - the T'Ong - that has been found in deep space with a crew in long-term stasis. They predate the current peaceful coexistence between the Federation and the Klingon Empire and as far as they are concerned, the Klingon warriors aboard the T'Ong are still at war with the humans. Worf has a solution to dealing with with the warriors. Meanwhile, it appears that K'Ehleyr - who is half-human - has a history and perhaps at one time a romance, with Lieutenant Worf.

Worf's in love...
14 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a Worf episode--and Worf episodes are always quite good, as he is a very interesting character with a strong and likable presence. The show begins with an emissary from the Federation arriving at the Enterprise. However, speed is of the utmost importance, so this agent is sent in a tiny coffin-like machine flying at warp 9! Worf is surprised when out of the device walks K'Ehleyr--a woman he knows and who is of human and Klingon parentage. It's very obvious that they have a past--but what it is you'll have to see as the episode progresses. As to why she's there, it turns out that a ship filled with Klingon warriors has been in suspended animation for decades--well before the Empire joined the Federation. So, the worry is that when they awaken, they'll once again renew attacks on Federation space...needlessly killing untold innocent people.

As I said, it's a Worf episode and spends time allowing his character to grow and evolve. I wonder if they way the story eventually went with K'Ehleyr is what they originally intended or was someone else once envisioned for this could...
