Episode Notes
Log Entries:
*Captain's log, stardate 44995.3. We are en route to the Klingon home world, where I will participate in the installation ceremony of Gowron, the next designated Leader of the High Council. This visit should also provide an opportunity for one of my officers to correct a grave injustice.

Episode References
The background of Commander Sela references the events in season three's Yesterday's Enterprise (03x15)

Commander Sela: We should not discount Jean-Luc Picard yet. He is human, and humans have a way of showing up when you least expect them.

An in-joke, of sorts, about Denise Crosby, whose character Lt. Tasha Yar was killed in Skin of Evil (01x23), but managed to show up again in Yesterday's Enterprise (03x15), and now has shown up a second time playing Commander Sela (whose relationship to Tasha Yar will be explained later).
