Star Trek: The Next GenerationStardate 47779.4: As Alexander nears the age where he must decide whether or not to become a warrior, Worf grows worried that the boy will choose to shed all vestiges of Klingon heritage. Visiting a Klingon outpost during a festival, Worf and Alexander are cornered by a gang of street thugs. As Worf manages to fight most of them off, the fight is ended by a Klingon who calls himself K’mtar, a bodyguard appointed by Worf’s brother Kurn. K’mtar reveals that the attack was not random, but an assassination attempt planned by Lursa and B’etor, who are still scheming to someday overthrow the Empire. With the help of K’mtar, and some gossip courtesy of Quark, the Enterprise is off to track down the Duras sisters when it becomes evident that someone is trying to tamper with future affairs.
