Storyline

Postscript

  • Lieutenant Commander Worf: "So it is true. The Augments have changed you. But it is a false strength. No true Klingon would ever betray his own people!"
  • Alexander "Yes, it seems it is true–even as a great warrior, I'll never be the son you want me to be. Well, I have a place with the Augments now–and I'm not about to give it up!"
  • choice A: Have genetic enhancement undone. (pro-Klingon)
    • Captain: MISSING
  • choice B: Order Alexander to fight for Klingons. (pro-Klingon)
    • Captain: "A true warrior may keep his strength... if he uses it for the Klingons."
  • choice C: Let Alexander go free. (pro-Augments)
    • Captain: "If you've really found peace with the Augments, then you're free to go to them."
    • Alexander: The younger Klingon looks shocked, but nods gratefully. "Goodbye, then, Father. Maybe we'll meet on the battlefield someday."
