The Enterprise responds to a disturbance in the neutral zone with reports of a possible Romulan attack on a Talerian freighter. There is debris in the area and the freighter has obviously suffered some damage. On board, they find 3 Klingons with one of them seriously injured. The survivors are not very forthcoming about what happened on their ship nor how three Klingon warriors even ended up on a space freighter. After the injured Klingon dies, the remaining two try to recruit Worf to their cause by appealing to his Klingon heritage and pride. They tell him they were looking for a new world where they could be true Klingons and that the debris the Enterprise found was actually that of a Klingon battle cruiser they fought and destroyed. The Enterprise soon comes into contact with a second Klingon cruiser that wants the renegades arrested and turned over to them.
Did You Know?
La Forge's VISOR is tied into the Enterprise-D's viewscreen during the away mission, allowing the bridge crew to see what he saw. It wasn't used again until Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Mind's Eye
(1991), although Dr. Tolian Soran later used it against the Enterprise-D in Star Trek: Generations
(1994). The appearance of images varied in each occurrence, so much so that it seems no different than normal visual perception in Generations. See more
When Lieutenant Yar arrives at the detention cell, she finds her security man down, and Konmel dead. While still crouched over her man, she reports this to the bridge, and concludes, "Korris has escaped and is armed." She hasn't looked in the detention cell to see if there is anyone there, alive or dead, and if the second security man was still armed. So how does she know Korris has escaped, or if he's armed?

[Worf has refused Korris's offer to join him
You are a sham! My words were dust upon the ground. Your blood has no fire. You are weak like them! I don't care what you look like. You are no Klingon!
