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.
Did You Know?
The original story had K'Ehleyr being the product of a Vulcan mother and a Klingon father, but the editors felt that was too unrealistic. See more
