Meanwhile, Duras meets with Kurn and reveals that he knows his true bloodline, attempting to blackmail him into turning against Worf. When Kurn vehemently refuses, Duras signals a pair of assassins in his employ who attack Kurn and seriously wound him. With Kurn recovering in the ''Enterprise'''s sickbay, Worf asks Picard to be his new [=Cha'DIch=]. After some hesitation, Picard replies, "jIlajneS. ghIj qet jaghmeyjaj." ("I accept with honor. May your enemies tremble before you.")

Added DiffLines:

* PermissionToSpeakFreely: Worf when going to find out why Kurn is patronising him. In a subversion, they only really start speaking freely once Worf forgets Starfleet protocol and threatens him.

* WhamLine: When Kurn succeeds in getting Worf outwardly enraged:

** Even with TheReveal that Kurn is the second-born son of Mogh, it's still a surprise when Duras addresses him as such, meaning that he knows the truth about Kurn and now considers him a threat to be dealt with.

Added DiffLines:

* SinsOfOurFathers: It's ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, albeit with the small wrinkle that Worf's father is TheScapegoat and not the real traitor, while Duras escapes punishment for his father's treason. [[spoiler:For now...]]

Added DiffLines:

* RejectionRitual: The High Council members cross their arms over their chest and turn their backs on Worf, one by one.

Added DiffLines:

* KangarooCourt: The trial turns out to be this as the High Council had already decided to blame Worf's father, not knowing his son would come to mount a defense. K'mpec even says so much at the end by saying the trial was over before it had begun.

Added DiffLines:

* ObfuscatingInsanity: When Picard first meets her, Kahlest pretends to be a senile old woman and constantly proclaims that she is dead and died at Khitomer. Moments later, when assassins set upon Picard outside her home, Kahlest deals with one quite handily and says that Worf chose his cha'Dich well.

Added DiffLines:

* JabbaTableManners: Like many Klingons, Kurn is extremely uncouth while having dinner with the Enterprise officers, openly spitting bones onto his plate and chewing loudly.

Added DiffLines:

* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: Worf angrily points his finger at Duras when he learns that it was Duras' father who betrayed the Khitomer colony.
--> '''Worf:''' Then THIS ''Ha'[=DIbah=]'' should have been fed to the dogs!


Added DiffLines:

--> '''Kurn:''' This entire ship seems built for...comfort, relaxation, being at ease. It is not the ship for a warrior...not the ship for a Klingon.


Added DiffLines:

* WorldOfHam: Qo'noS. The High Council chambers alone are overflowing with raw ham.

Added DiffLines:

* IAmXSonOfY:
** Of ''course'' Worf would introduce himself this way in the council chambers.
---> "I am Worf, son of Mogh! I have come to challenge the lies that have been spoken of my father!"
** But also PlayedWith when Kurn introduces himself as "Son of...Lorgh", as Worf had ordered him to keep his true parentage a secret. The pause is brief, but just noticeable.
