Overview

Cadet Worf arrives at Starfleet AcademyTM as the first Klingon to gain entrance since the Federation-Klingon, Peace Treaty. Raised on Earth by human parents, Worf wonders whether he is still a Klingon, the proud member of an honorable warrior race, or is he more human?

Command-level classes fill his schedule, but nothing prepares him for his fellow cadets, among them his human foster brother. Intelligent, ambitious, and confident, the Academy cadets make life difficult for the young warrior. Worf must win over his classmates -- including the always logical Vulcans and the fierce Brikar -- even though they are still trained to think of him as the enemy.

Then a routine trip to a training satellite turns into an unexpected disaster, and Worf must unite the cadets and risk his life before a terrible accident destroys the entire mission.

Editorial Reviews

Sheilamae O
From birth, Brikars are taught to mistrust and despise Klingons. Klingons are taught to react to taunts and threats with physical force. When Brikar Zak and Klingon Worf meet on arrival at Starfleet Academy, it takes only minutes for a fight to break out. The Admiral assigns them to the same room, telling them to resign, get along, or get expelled if they fight again. Too proud to resign and too stubborn to get along, they just manage to avoid fighting while defying each other on every occasion. The story details the demands of the academy, Worf's difficulties in adjusting socially, and his brother's academic and psychological problems. An exciting and apparently fatal battle finally makes clear to the cadets what it takes to serve as an officer in the Federation. Although the message of tolerance is explicit, the plot is taut and the characters intriguing enough to hold the interest of confirmed Trekies and probably entice new members to that group. A good start to a new series, Star Trek: The Next Generation.
