Storyline

The Enterprise is ordered to an emergency rendezvous to collect a special envoy traveling from Starbase 153. They are given no information about the nature of the emergency, just that they will be briefed by the emissary on arrival. She is K'Ehleyr, a half-human/half-Klingon who has been sent to deal with the Klingon warship T'Ong that has been found in deep space with a crew in long-term stasis. They predate the current peaceful coexistence between the Federation and the Klingon Empire and, as far as they are concerned, the Klingon warriors aboard are still at war. Worf has a solution to dealing with the warriors. Meanwhile, it appears that K'Ehleyr has a history - and perhaps at one time a romance - with Lieutenant Worf. Written by garykmcd

Feels like a romance novel
24 March 2020 | by aram-99008See all my reviews

The romance in this episode feels so fleshed out. They feel like, "we shouldn't, but it feels so right". It's such an authentic romance that it feels like it's a novel. Anyway it's still a very great episode, and very unique.
