Having discovered survivors from the Romulan attack on Khitomer (the infamous attack that established peace between the Klingons and the Federation), Worf resists becoming one of them, even though he becomes a prisoner, himself. He is puzzled by their lack of desire to escape, but they explain that it's not a prison: they have chosen to remain since returning would be a great dishonor to their families, who have assumed the warriors died in battle. Instead, Worf begins to teach the younger Klingons about their ancestry and the proud tradition that exists among them, much to the chagrin of the elders. Written by Moviedude1

So much for peace and happiness......
17 March 2020 | by faithless4734See all my reviews

This is ridiculous. Worf comes to a place that two enemy peoples have learned to live together in peace, even intermarriage and his bigoted ways destroy that peace. So much for Star Trek and their ideals. Let us also not forget that Worf was AWOL as he did not have permission to leave and then of course we have to look at him stealing these young people from the only way of life they know and dumping them into a strange and unknown life and way of life with no family or friends and no real skill sets.
