Responding to a distress call from Worf’s adoptive older brother, the Enterprise unwittingly becomes party to a violation of the prime direction when he transports a village of people from a pre-warp civilisation to the holodeck, sparing them certain death just before their planet dies…

The Trekzone Review

Once again, another family member comes along that we have never heard of – yet he is known by the crew as someone ‘that wouldn’t take that sort of risk.’ Implying at least a familiarity with him… and his relationship to Worf. But we’ll never hear from or of him again following this episode.

Another pesky sub-plot that seems to have been dropped is the warp speed limitation posted by Starfleet earlier this season… when Picard presumably orders maximum warp to the new planet of the Boraalan’s.
