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?
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?
