Stardate 43685.2: The Enterprise receives a Klingon first officer on the Federation exchange program, Commander Kurn, who tests Worf’s nerve and turns out to be the security chief’s brother, seperated from Worf at birth. Worf learns that their father has been indicted on charges of betraying the Khitomer Outpost – which is where he died. The execution will be carried out on Worf’s family name, and he returns to the First City of the Klingon Empire and discovers the true traitor, but also finds that even Klingons can be totally dishonest and dishonorable, and after Kurn and Captain Picard become the targets of assassins, Worf pays for a crime his father did not commit with his own honor.
