More crappy parenting tips from Mr. Worf!
19 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Worf is an odd character in the Star Trek shows. I generally really liked him but also noticed that he was clearly the worst parent in the history of the series' regulars! When Alexander was revealed to him "Star Trek: The Next Generation" as his son, he seemed very uncomfortable with parenting and ALWAYS behaved as if the boy was a disappointment. Now, several years later and on "Star Trek: Deep Space 9", he's even more disappointed and seems to be a completely horrible parent--even by Klingon standards!

The show begins with Worf serving aboard Martok's ship. To his complete surprise, Alexander shows up as a replacement crew member-- and IMMEDIATELY Worf shows his displeasure. As for Alexander, he's unsure of himself, wimpy and a screw-up--and soon the crew is not only riding him but letting Worf hear about this! As a Klingon, naturally this will result in Worf beating the crap out of the crew members, right? Well, not really, as Worf offers the boy no help and tries to get him off the ship! The only understanding one is Martok--who proves himself to be a real stand-up guy!

The parallel story has a similar sort of plot. Dukat is embarrassed that the evidence of his dallying with Bajorans is alive and well. So, he tries to kill Ziyal...making him a marginally BETTER parent than Worf!

Aside from the fact you hate Worf in this one, it's a pretty decent episode--and one that makes your heart break for Alexander. Worth your time.
