"Star Trek: The Next Generation" The Emissary (TV Episode 1989) - Plot Summary Poster

Plot Summary

  • 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.

  • Starfleet observes extreme secrecy about the Enterpise's mission, to be explained by a special emissary who arrives most hastily by a small converted space capsule. It's female half-Klingon K'Ehleyr, who unlike Worf considers herself essentially human. However, the pair has a complex relationship, with past frustrations and frustrating expectations. They must deal with Klingon captain K'Temoc's warship, which due to just ending stasis is unaware that the war against humanity has ended. The envoy considers the mission a lost cause, but Picard demands creative solutions and Worf is determined to deliver one.

  • The Enterprise beams aboard an emissary from Starfleet Command. She informs them that a Klingon vessel - the T'Ong - whose crew has been in cryogenic sleep for almost a century. When they awake, they will still believe that the Klingons are at war with the Federation and since they will be near some Federation outposts, which they would immediately attack. Unknown to the crew of the Enterprise, Worf and K'Ehleyr - a half-human, half-Klingon female - were once linked romantically. Picard asked them to come up with a plan to stop the Klingon ship, they argue and K'Ehleyr storms out. K'Ehleyr goes to the Holodeck and selects Worf's calisthenics program - which is a battle against deadly aliens. Worf joins her for the exercise. After winning the battle and the resulting intimacy, Worf asks her to take the Klingon oath of marriage, which traditionally follows intimacy, but she refuses. Then Enterprise approaches the T'Ong. Worf dressed in full Klingon captain's regalia and presents himself to the T'Ong as the captain of the Enterprise. He convinces that the Klingons are now members of the Federation. As K'Ehleyr prepares to take command of the Klingon vessel, she and Worf reconcile their differences.
