Moral :
Family : Family can sometime seem embarrasing but you love them non the less.
YATI : Since Worf's last name is Rozhenko, why is he continually called Worf even by junior officers?

In this episode, Alexander's classmates go on a trip to see models of extinct animals. Why wouldn't their teacher take them to the holodeck so they could see living versions of these creatures?

Worf gets paged by various people during his meeting with the captain. Does this seem right? I know Picard doesn't have a secretary, but surely the computer can be set to hold all but emergency pages from the comm system during meetings?

Body Count : Zero.
Factoid : The soliton wave ship is a reuse of the model of the Mars defence ships from "Best of Both Worlds , Part II"

At one point, Geordi enthuses that seeing the Soliton drive used for the first time would be like being there to see Chuck Yeager break the sound barrier, or Zephram Cochrane engage the first warp drive. Of course, thanks to time travel Geordi and Riker would actually be sitting in the cockpit with Cochrane when he did exactly that!

Plotline

The Enterprise participates in the testing of a revolutionary new warp technology, while Worf's parents pay him a visit.
