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.

Seminal Episode with Interesting Implications
13 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Worf is certainly an interesting character, often conflicted about his Klingon heritage and being pulled away from duty due to his genetic makeup. In this one an emissary arrives, a beautiful half Klingon/half human who apparently has had history with Worf. He is incredibly resentful of her and even asks to not be around her. Apparently, career paths have gotten in the way in the past, and Worf is not forgiving. It's no secret that these two are going to get together at some point. The reason for an emissary has to do with a Klingon warship that has its crew in suspended animation. Because they entered this state before the Federation made alliances with Klingon, they will wake up thinking there is still war between the two camps. It's a little like the Japanese soldiers in the Philippines who were isolated and thought that World War II was still in progress. Anyway, what they must deal with is the distrust that could lead to an all-out assault by the Klingons before reason can be restored. There are some interesting negotiations that take place. There is also a very erotic (in Klingon terms) encounter between Worf and his lover. A nicely done episode that sets up some future events.
