Rightful Heir

Star Trek: The Next GenerationStardate 46852.2: Worf journeys to Boreth, where devout Klingons meditate in hope of glimpsing a vision of Kahless, the legendary leader of all Klingons and the originator of their hereditary quest for honor and glory. Worf and many of the others are surprised when Kahless actually appears and announces his intention to return to the imperial throne and put the Klingon Empire back on a path toward honor. Worf is skeptical at first, but when Gowron, the Empire’s current leader, demands a genetic test which proves that the new arrival is indeed Kahless, a deep division separating skeptics and those who wish to follow Kahless seems imminent.
