Ch'Pok claims that Worf committed a crime in killing civilians, and needs to be extradited to stand trial. Yet in the hearing, he emphasises that Klingons kill all their enemies, be they military or civilian, women or children. So why do the Klingons want Worf extradited for doing something their culture says is okay? And why doesn't either Sisko or the Vulcan judge notice this inconsistency?
When Worf orders Kira to fire on the transport ship he orders a full spread of quantum torpedoes; but on the viewscreen the ship actually fires photon torpedoes.
Great Moment :
After the end of the trial, Sisko calls Worf to task for firing on the ship. It's a great moment, because it proves that Sisko actually didn't believe his initial defence of Worf in the trial, that he was trying to get a guilty man off - just what a good advocate is supposed to do.
When Worf destroys a transport ship full of Klingon civilians during a battle with Klingon forces, he must face a hearing to decide whether he should be extradited to the Klingon Empire.
