Summary[edit | edit source]

In the late-24th century and early-25th century, Toral, son of Duras leads a terrorist campaign against the Federation and Klingon Empire. During this campaign of terror, Chancellor Worf and his son Ambassador Alexander Rozhenko served as major foils to Toral's plots.

In 2402, Toral used a new weapon, the metreon wave, to destroy Federation Outpost 15. He then threatened to unleash the wave against Cygnus III if Rozhenko did not immediately commit suicide and have his body place in R'kalla Square. Worf was enraged by this turn of events and wanted to stop Toral while keeping his son alive, but Admiral Jean-Luc Picard informed him that Toral was too well hidden to be stopped before he destroyed Cygnus III.

Rozhenko took this outcome in stride and decided to go through the Hegh'bat ritual, committing suicide with the help of his father. Word then beamed his sons body to the public square and spent hours mourning his son and watching a message Alexander had left for him. Then, Worf was contacted by Picard, who informed him that Rozhenko had implanted a phase-shifting beacon under his skin before going through the ritual, allowing Starfleet to track Toral and capture his band of terrorists. Picard then informed Worf that Toral would be turned over to the Empire for justice.
