The U.S.S. Enterprise travels to the Klingon Empire, where Captain Picard is to attend the installation of Gowron, the new Leader of the High Council.
En route, the Enterprise is intercepted by the Klingon ship bearing Gowron. Gowron who informs Picard that the heirs to the Duras family is amassing a rebel faction, and plotting civil war against the Empire.
The secondary plot is where Data takes command of the USS Sutherland and comes up against a first officer who doesn’t think Data can command. Naturally it is Data’s own abilities to quickly analyze and synthesize a solution that exposes the Romulan supply running.
Picard and Lieutenant Worf fight to end a Klingon Civil War, and redeem Worf’s family name. “Redemption” is a 2-part Star Trek: The Next Generation episode re-edited as a feature-length presentation which was the Season Four finale and Season Five premiere.
Redemption continued what quickly became TNG’s trademark for season endings/beginnings, a cliffhanger two-parter that left you wanting more. Redemption also has the honor of being the cliffhanger that kicked off the 25th anniversary celebrations of Star Trek in 1991.
