Stardate not given: After rescuing Sisko’s crew in the Rotarran, Martok and Worf take on a group of five replacements from the Klingon Defense Forces – one of which, to Worf’s surprise, is his son, Alexander Rozhenko, whom he had sent to live with his foster grandparents on Earth. Alexander refuses to discuss his reasons for joining the Empire’s forces, especially with his father, and unfortunately he is the butt of the other recruits’ jokes, leaving Worf in an awkward position. Meanwhile, on the station, Ziyal has returned, and Kira tries to get along with Dukat for her sake.
