Captain Jean-Luc Picard convinces Fleet Admiral Shanthi that the Federation must no longer maintain neutrality because the Duras side's alliance with the Romulans turns the raging Klingon civil war into sort of a proxy war, which Gowron's loyal side is losing. All major Enterprise officers take starship commands, including Data, who had to ask for this first and immediately faces a transfer request from his first officer, Lt. Commander Christopher Hobson, who has a prejudice against androids, yet Data keeps him on. Picard is startled to hear that the Romulan commander Sela claims to be Tasha's daughter, first thinks it's a lie, then hears Guinan's theory confirmed, which would mean the previous Enterprise is indirectly responsible for the present conflict. Now the civil war is going badly, Worf's loyalty to Gowron and his family leadership are challenged at his own side, he falls in the hands of the Duras sisters, Lursa and B'Etor.

Did You Know?


This is the only episode of the Sela arc where she is referred to by name. See more »


As we know from what Gowron says at least six weeks elapses between parts one and two, more than enough time for the Enterprise to undergo a minor refit, which would explain the changes made to the observation lounge. See more »


B'Etor: Worf is not like his brother.
Lursa: No. He tries to be, but he's still unsure of himself.
B'Etor: Perhaps he needs something to help restore his confidence.
Lursa: I think he'll find our offer appealing.
B'Etor: I'll make sure he does.

Denise Crosby returns to TNG as the Romulan daughter of Tasha Yar who has a mission to supply the Duras clan with weaponry in the Klingon Civil War. She's a resourceful foe for Patrick Stewart.

I never quite bought the whole business of how she became Tasha Yar's daughter and was introduced in the series. Still this is an exciting episode.

Captain Picard proposes a blockade plan and this is accepted by Star Fleet as their way of intervening and yet not intervening in the Klingon's internal war. As for Crosby and the Romulans their whole effort depends on secrecy.

Some of senior staff of the Enterprise go to other ships and that includes Data. An android has never been given command of a starship before, but despite some doubts among his human crew Brent Spiner actually saves the day. You have to see how.

A nicely done story, but the Duras clan ain't finished by a long shot.
