Worf hasn't heard anything from his brother Kurn since Chancellor Gowron brought the glory days of the House of Mogh to an end. All of the sudden, he arrives on the station and asks Worf to perform the Mauk-to'Vor ritual. He wants to regain his honor in the next life. Since suicide is out of the question, Kurn believes only Worf is capable of giving him his honor back by killing him. Meanwhile, Kira and O'Brien are on their way home. Near the Bajoran border, they are startled by a sudden high energy discharge. It looks like a cloaked ship exploded, but there's no debris. When the two want to take a closer look, a Klingon warship stops them. They claim to be conducting military exercises. Kira doesn't trust it, neither does Sisko. He gives permission to take the Defiant for a better look. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

A Puzzle with Few Solutions
23 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

When Worf's brother show up on the space station, Worf soon finds out that Kurn is in desperate straits. He has lost his honor because of Worf's actions against the Cardassians. His home is gone, his title is gone, and his family is now a pariah. He expects Worf to kill him in an ancient rite. Of course, in doing so, Worf throws his own life away; but he tries anyway. Worf must find a way to try to keep his brother alive. Meanwhile, the Empire is up to no good, leaving cloaked mines near Bajor, a cowardly act, certainly. The conclusion is quite touching.
