Alexander doesn’t want to have his Klingon bar mitzvah – that’s essentially what’s going on here. A mysterious Klingon consigliere who is very concerned with the future of the House of Mogh isn’t quite what he seems. It’s actually Alexander from the Future (whaaat?) come to try and coax his younger self into taking the warrior’s path. Everything goes back to normal, but not really, and this episode leaves itself open for lots of annoying criticism.

Hats off, though, for bringing back the Duras sisters and for once again trying to throw the baton over to DS9 (Quark shows up.) Stubborn TNG-only fans only have a few episodes left!
