Storyline

The Enterprise gets surprise messages and visits by stunningly crafty means for the rogue Ferengi 'DaiMon' (commander) Bok, who announces he'll exact retribution on Picard after 15 years for killing Bok's son in a legitimate space battle. The object of vengeance is Jason Vigo, a 23 year-old dashing climbing athlete and adventurer, whom Bok claims is Picard's son by the late Miranda Vigo. Jason is picked up for protection and found genetically compatible with both, but carrier of a rare hereditary degenerating disease. Data finds Jason's roguish minor criminal record. Ferengi reveal Bok was deposed as mentally unstable, but he still gets his ultimate confrontation, when the whole truth proves crucial. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

This story has two major parallels with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982). In both stories, the Enterprise captain is told he has a son he didn't know about, and is being targeted for revenge by an old nemesis. See more »

Goofs

When Picard is talking with Jason on top of the rock wall, he tells him that he'll never look at his hairline the same way. It is a popular misconception that balding is a paternal trait when it is actually maternal. See more »

Sir Patrick knows his craft

It doesn't matter how silly the script is or how elegant the words are on paper, Patrick Stewart is an amazing actor. I enjoyed his performance in this very much.
